Graduate Cloud Engineer at Kubrick Group

Expires in 8 days

A bit about us:

We are an award-winning consultancy that’s committed to closing the digital skills gap and making data, AI, and technology accessible for all. We do this by hiring graduates and junior professionals without any relevant skills or experience in data, AI, or technology, and paying them to train over 15 weeks. Once trained, our consultants are assigned to leading UK clients for a period of two years where they apply the skills acquired to real-world projects.

In addition to closing the digital skills gap, we are working hard as an organisation to close the gender gap that’s existed for too long in data, AI, and tech. We are proud partners of Women in Data – an organisation that focuses on encouraging diverse representation in the industry - and have an internal committee of diversity champions who are focused on building a more inclusive environment for all. We also review our benefits and policies on a regular basis to ensure they are supportive of all genders and diversities and run a variety of internal initiatives designed to support all staff from a diversity and inclusion perspective.

The role:

As a Cloud Engineer at Kubrick, you will be critical in our clients’ digital transformation, helping evaluate their current infrastructure, explore options for moving to the cloud, and then oversee the migration and the maintenance of the new system. You will collaborate with your colleagues to embed cloud technology and best practice, revolutionising the capabilities and efficiency of teams and business functions of organisations in all industries.

You don’t need any coding or Cloud experience to join Kubrick as we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
