One of the most annoying elements of job seeking is wading through the constant drivel online, consisting of badly written job ads, uninspiring LinkedIn activity and recruiters who think Apache relates to a military-grade attack helicopter.


So I wanted to 'go against the grain' and write something short, snappy and hopefully interesting enough to make ou want to apply. Let's see how that goes...


An innovative and progressive IT Consulting Firm in Manchester (5 minutes from Piccadilly) is looking to recruit experienced Senior Cloud Engineers to come in and work within their expanding engineering function. They have a diverse portfolio of customers spanning multiple verticals including Financial Services, Banking, Retail, Insurance and the Public Sector, with the overriding focus being on the design and delivery of scalable Cloud solutions.


Simply put... these guys know what a good engineering house looks like and their long-term goal is to create a centre of excellence for software engineering. Sound like something you'd like to be involved in?


If the answer is a resounding 'yes' then read on...


Your responsibilities in this role would be varied, encompassing the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC) with specific focus on the delivery of solutions and platforms using the latest Cloud technologies (AWS, Azure, GCP) in a fully Agile environment, including Scrum, TDD and CI/CD.


As a Senior Cloud Engineer, you would be tasked with providing a high-level of technical leadership, getting involved in the mentoring/coaching of Junior Engineers as well as some of the software architecture. Moreover, your role would invole hands on engineering using a range of core DevOps tools/technologies including containers (Docker, Kubernetes, Rancher), CI (Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity), cloud (AWS, Azure) and source control management (Git, SVN, Nexus).


In return, you would be joining an organisation that genuinely invests in its employees. They offer fully expensed certifications (think Cloud/DevOps), personal/tailored training budgets and the opportunity to attend some of the largest tech conferences globally (e.g. Dreamforce, Microsoft Ignite, AWS Re-Invent) fully free of charge! Moreover, the company offer flexible working hours and the opportunity to work remotely, so don't be put off by the word 'Consultancy!'.


So if you like the sound of this role and have (hopefully) enjoyed reading my ad then give me a shout! I can be contacted via the following:
