Cloud System Engineer (AWS, DevOps, Agile) - Remote and Leuven, Belgium - English speaking

One of our Blue Chip Clients is urgently looking for a Cloud System Engineer.

For this role you can initiallywork remotely, but once the COVID restrictions have been lifted, you will then need to be based onsite in Leuven.

Please find some details below:

As a Cloud system engineer, you are responsible for the engineering, integration and maintenance of the CLIENT cloud platform. This can be on AWS, Azure as well as on our on prem cloud native platform. The focus is on technology/infrastructure services, not the usage and development methodologies that use the cloud platform. The latter is handled by software engineering teams with which you will be working closely.

You assist in feasibility studies to take on new technological services or improvements, and help design the services with focus on security, maintainability, flexibility and efficiency. You work together with architects and analysts to come to a proper final design, product owners and scrum masters to govern the exercise and its allocated resources, and software engineering to ensure effective positioning and service offerings.

Once the design is made and approved, you ensure that the services are correctly deployed and maintained across the various quality environments, and that this maintenance and support can be done by other members of the DevOps team. To accomplish this, you develop the right set of documentation (user, administration and internal/expert documentation) and ensure handover and information sessions to colleagues as well as core stakeholders.

Essential to the engineering task is the integration of the platform in the enterprise context. As such, you will come in contact with all other infrastructural services and components, many proprietary and centrally managed (through other teams or service centers).

We want to support our stakeholders in providing new business capabilities with a short time to market. To achieve this you will work in a DevOps and Agile/SAFe way of working. By joining us you have a unique chance to be a frontrunner at CLIENT and lay the foundation of modern and the future proof development and hosting of applications.

Business context

The directorate you will be working in, is responsible for infrastructure services in a highly critical environment, ensuring the secure setup and long-term maintainability of these services. The focus ranges from the data center oriented services up to hosting the business applications that run on top of standardized Middleware and integration technologies. Through established governance processes, new capabilities and improvements are investigated and designed, and the necessary projects are then launched to engineer efficiently maintainable, high available services and capabilities to support the high service level demands of the business information systems.

Within this directorate, public cloud environments are positioned at CLIENT as a hosting platform besides our on-prem private cloud platform (HPC platform), cloud-native platform, big data platform and the Mainframe platform.

The aim of using cloud services at CLIENT is to take the advantages out of the standard public cloud benefits such as agility (T2M), elasticity, availability (always-on), ecosystem enabling, security and efficiency. This because CLIENT wants to be the reference regarding emerging/innovative cloud technologies like Big Data, Blockchain, AI, Hence a cloud strategy is defined to become mature & secure on cloud level.

We are only in the beginning of our journey and more capabilities needs to be developed to remain the frontrunning in modern application development and hosting at CLIENT.

Please send CV for full details and immediate interviews. We are a preferred supplier to the client.
