DevOps Engineer

Cloudreach, Edinburgh

Information Technology and Services

Big dreams often start small. From an idea in a London pub, we have grown into a global cloud enabler which operates across 7 countries and speak 30 languages.

Our mission at Cloudreach is to “enable innovation”. We do this by helping enterprise customers adopt and harness the power of cloud computing. We believe that the growth of a great business can only be fuelled by great people, so join us in our partnership with AWS, Microsoft and Salesforce and help us  build  one of the most disruptive companies in the cloud industry. It’s not your average job, because Cloudreach is not your average company.

We’ve just moved! Our new Edinburgh office is located in the centre of Edinburgh’s old town, nestled at the foot of the ancient hill of Arthur’s Seat and the beautiful modern buildings that house the Scottish Parliament.

What does the Cloud Operations team do ?

Cloud Operations are our team of superhuman Engineers who support our customer’s cloud infrastructure as a managed service.

We have an awesome Bimodal service that offers our customers peace of mind with enterprise level, ITIL driven support, as well as offer all the agile, funky advantages that DevOps and Automation provides. They get their hands dirty across a wide range of technologies including AWS, Azure, Ansible, Jenkins, Chef, Splunk, Lambda and and many more.

Our DevOps Engineers work with some of the largest, most complex infrastructure in the world. They help our customers build fully automated, scalable and robust infrastructure while liaising with the customer’s Development and Operations teams to identify areas for optimisation in a continuous improvement phase.
