Cloud Engineer

Cloud Engineer

Being an Engineer is hard. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Anybody can make scripts to build, call it a pipeline, and execute it a couple of times.

Being a great Engineer is harder. Development skills are essential, but it doesn’t matter how fast your team delivers and how good your quality is, you have to deliver the right thing every day. Identifying and expressing that ‘right thing’ at every level of detail is a big job.

You should enjoy and even advocate an engineering culture and love being part of a high-performance, self-managing team if you want to become an Cloud Engineer on our Server Operating Systems team. Your 1st priority will be engineering Windows Server golden images (with Linux as a close 2nd) so in-depth Windows knowledge is a bonified prerequisite.


What will you do?

As an Engineer you are a strong, pragmatic person with the ability to execute on Server (Windows and Linux) delivery.

You are responsible for:

  • Hardening Windows with Desired State Configuration
  • Creating golden images for multiple Windows (Server) versions
  • Creating everything in code/automation using Azure DevOps Services or sort-like tooling
  • Collaborating with other IT teams that will create servers based on a your images
  • Implementing financial compliancy rules
  • Handling environments in AWS and Azure
  • Innovation, CI/CD and infrastructure-as-code.

You will spend a lot of your time working together with your team members to get the job done. This means the following activities will also be part of your responsibilities:

  • Automate processes (e.g. security, infra provisioning, compliance)
  • Second-day operations (e.g. monitoring, billing, incidents)
  • Advise on the use of new cloud native solutions


Meet your team

You will be part of the cloud team that provides our business with easy-to-use and secure cloud (custom) images on which they can run servers and their applications. We welcome creative engineers and technology enthusiasts who enjoy being challenged by technical problems, with a strong desire to make services better for our users.  

We're looking for people like you who can help us embed an awesome culture and improve it over time. People who use their intelligence and whatever tools make sense to get the job done. People who love to stand on the shoulders of giants and collaborate to solve new problems and thrive in a rapidly innovating space.

NN is a large organization. If you start working with our team, you will work for CIO.
