As a Lead AWS Architect, you will find yourself participating in various customer projects, from new infrastructure builds and migrations, to audits and big data.

Day-to-day work can be anything from implementing configuration management infrastructure to taking a step back and giving workshops and design recommendations to a technical team. You will be coaching and leading the AWS team of Architects, leading delivery engagements, and supporting presales and sales architecture. Furthermore, you will become a trusted advisor for high-profile enterprise businesses and jointly manage the customer relationship and roadmap with the Nordcloud Sales team. All in all, you'll have a selection of different 'hats' to put on and have the luxury of following customer projects from start to release.

Your skills and attributes of success:

* A highly skilled multinational team
* Individual training budget and exam fees for partner certifications (Azure, AWS, GCP) and additional certification bonus covered
* Access to join and the possibility to create knowledge-sharing sessions within a community of leading cloud professionals
* Flexible working hours and freedom to choose your tools (laptop and smartphone) and ways of working
* Hybrid work (4 days remote, 1 in the UK office or more if you like)
* Local benefits such as a pension scheme with matching contribution, extensive private health care, and insurance, Bupa dental plan, seasonal ticket loan, and gym expenses are covered by the company
