This is a rare opportunity to own the Google Cloud (GCP) Tech stack within the team, and become the 'go to' expert within the company!

  • A Cloud Engineering opportunity based on Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Join a thriving company culture who support you to learn and grow!
  • A permanent position with flexible work from home arrangements
With the emergence of AWS Cloud Services over recent years, and the growing presence of Microsoft’s Azure Cloud offering, Google are now establishing themselves as a major player in the market, and this is where you might come into the picture.
  
Working with an Australian born success story, we have a new position available for a Cloud Infrastructure Engineering professional to come on board and enhance the company’s capabilities across Google’s Cloud Platform (GCP) and to own that technology piece to become the GCP expert and SME within the team.
  
This company has enjoyed strong success in the market since their inception, and have traditionally worked closely across AWS and Microsoft / Windows technology stacks with a strive towards automation, and due to the evolution of their customer’s requirements, Google and GCP is going to become much busier in terms of projects, which is why we need you!
  
Working as a partner with the likes of AWS and Google themselves, you’ll have the opportunity to deal directly with those Enterprises, and you’ll be encouraged to continue on your learning journey to build on your GCP skills, achieving technical certifications along the way which the company will support you with, to become that Google SME within the team, where you will lead the way to design, build and support new Cloud Infrastructure technologies and services.
  
Ideally we are seeking candidates who understand Cloud Engineering, so you may have come from a background more closely aligned to AWS, but if you’ve had a good play around with GCP and want to specialise across that tech stack, then we’ll still be keen to hear from you.
  
The skills & experience that we’re ideally looking for::
  • Experience working in a Cloud Infrastructure / Cloud Systems Engineer / Systems Administration type role.
  • A real passion for building future state technology stacks and cloud environments.
  • Evidence of working in migration projects, migrating “on-premise” infrastructure towards cloud services such as GCP or AWS.
  • Proven knowledge and experience working with Google GCP, along with experience working across GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine), Compute Engine etc..
  • Possess a good level of understanding of Google’s cloud services, including areas such as ‘Compute Engine’ for virtual machines (VM’s), Cloud Storage, Cloud DNS etc..
  • Experience working with JSON / YAML.
  • Ability to display a good understanding of Terraform and CI / CD DevOps type practices.
  • Experience with scripting and coding languages such as Python, Go, Java will help you sprinkle your magic for some automation work.
  • Strong experience working with Windows Exchange Servers - Enterprise and Online.
  • AWS Cloud Services experience will be considered as an added advantage and an extra string to your bow.
  • Exposure to Networking ie. MPLS, Cisco Switches and Clustered firewalls.
  • Google, AWS and Kubernetes certifications will be highly regarded.
This is seriously one of the best places to flourish and grow your Google (GCP) Cloud Services skills where you'll be able to share and impart your own ideas for better ways of automating infrastructure tasks and functions. This team love to collaborate with each other and they strive to adopt the best approaches for Cloud infrastructure and automation, and they'll also support your career with ongoing training and will help you to secure and obtain multiple Google (GCP) and AWS technical certifications to add to your belt.
