Employment Type Full-Time

About the Company

In January 2020, Cloudhelix (www.cloudhelix.io) became part of the Ekco (www.ek.co) group, with colleagues and subsidiaries now located across UK, Ireland, and Netherlands.

 

Cloudhelix is a boutique UK cloud service provider, we specialise in enabling companies to progress along the path of cloud maturity while driving better outcomes from our customers’ existing technology investments.

 

Our ability to deliver flexible infrastructures utilising both private and public cloud technologies coupled with our responsive, agile, and above-all hugely capable technical teams is why our customers choose us above larger, slower-moving competitors and our innovative Transformation-as-a-Service approach separates us from other competitors. Services range from traditional VMware-based infrastructure; Backup & DR, to public cloud management with AWS, Azure, and Google; as well as newer PaaS & Dev-Ops and Containerisation services.

 

Due to our continued expansion into 2021, we are searching for a talented Public Cloud Engineer to join our dynamic and growing technical team based in Edinburgh.

 

Responsibilities and Duties 

Customer Support 

Cloudhelix provide managed cloud and network services, and our ability to provide responsive, agile, and above-all intelligent support is why our customers choose us above larger, slower-moving competitors. As a Cloud Architect one of your primary responsibilities is to respond to customer support enquiries, tickets, and change requests. 

 

Automation and Orchestration 

If we have to carry out a menial task more than once, it's best to automate it. We have no desire to expand to 100 desks of junior support staff carrying out basic server checks and password resets - far better to write microservices to poll the infrastructure, well-structured alerts with intelligent automated escalations, and CI pipelines to run periodic tests.  

 

You will have automated deployment experience, including orchestration tools such as Puppet or Ansible, as well as CI/CD tools such as Jenkins or GitLab. Automation of alerting using Nagios or Solarwinds is also desirable.

  • Public cloud certified (Azure / AWS) and relevant experience deploying and managing cloud based applications
  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code tools such as Terraform

  • Automation experience using Puppet and/or Ansible
  • Configuring and managing CI/CD tools
  • Configuration management
  • Working using version control software
  • High level of written and spoken English
  • High standard of documentation

 

Desired 

  • At least one scripting language (such as PowerShell or Python)
  • VMware vSphere knowledge
  • Linux Server Administration

  • Use a consultative, positive, solution-focused mentality at all times with a proactive and can-do attitude
