Hybrid Cloud Engineer (AWS) – Technology Innovation Group
London, United Kingdom
22h ago

G-Research is a leading quantitative research and technology company. By using the latest scientific techniques, we produce world-

beating predictive research and build advanced technology to analyse the world’s data.

In 2017 we established the Technology Innovation Group (TIG), with a mission to continuously discover, map and put to test new technologies and approaches across the entire stack that might benefit the business as a whole.

  • TIG use a combination of public and private clouds and an on-premise dedicated lab to quickly explore and assess new technologies;
  • ranging from storage arrays to machine learning libraries and cloud-native solutions, building proof-of-concepts and prototypes collaborating with the rest of the business.

    There is hardly any limit to what we test : in the last year alone, we’ve got our hands dirty on cloud-based big-data solutions, data lakes, novel data-

    stores, containerisation, machine learning, hardware infrastructure and new kinds of compute technology.

    The Role

    As a Hybrid Cloud Engineer (AWS), you will be central to supporting the wider business in evaluating public and private cloud offerings, and collaborating in the development of cloud-

    native and hybrid cloud solutions. This is a dynamic role supporting multiple kinds of projects running in the lab and cloud from different areas in the business simultaneously.

    The responsibilities of the role include :

  • Supporting the already-established AWS environments providing resources for proof-of-concepts and testing for the rest of the business
  • Providing day-to-day assistance to lab users experimenting in AWS
  • Helping shape the design and build (hybrid-cloud) solutions aimed at improving the Lab’s service offering and reporting that will be used as demonstrators for the rest of the business
  • Attending national and international conferences to keep updated on the latest trends and services
  • Using your experience and lessons learnt while experimenting in the lab to help define what services, solutions or approaches TIG should test next
  • Who are we looking for?

    A key challenge for all the members of TIG is to cut through the noise of the never-stopping flow of new technologies being released into the wild to cherry-

    pick the interesting ones to be put to the test. This requires you to have a real passion for innovation, as well as a solid and proven track-

    record in building cloud-based solutions, ideally with multi-year experience using both private and public clouds.

    You’ll also need to effectively interact and support staff from across the business and build secure cloud-backed environments for them to test in.

    So you will need to be a very effective communicator as well as fluent in all the quirks and secrets of securing cloud environments while not affecting too much of the freedom of users working on their proof-of-concepts.

    You will have experience of the following :

  • Excellent knowledge of AWS concepts and services
  • Solid experience with the Infrastructure-as-Code principles and their implementation in private, public and hybrid cloud scenarios
  • Experience in building and operating CI / CD pipelines
  • Understanding with Terraform and Ansible for provisioning and configuring cloud resources
  • Knowledge of Docker containers, containerisation and Kubernetes
  • Scripting experience (e.g. Bash, Python, Go)
