We are a multi-disciplinary, agile team of experts across Architecture, Engineering, DevOps and Agile Delivery, closely collaborating with our business colleagues, working cloud native, and providing services across the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Spain, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. 


You are a thought leader in, a practitioner and an advocate of cloud engineering practices? You live and breathe AWS, love elegant cloud-native solution, and are driven by a DevSecOps mindset, infrastructure-as-code and automation wherever possible? You want to lift cloud engineering practices and tooling, cloud security, and software development excellence to the next level, with your own hand-picked team, and thus support all our many product teams?
