About the Challenge

The Cloud Developer is responsible for developing cloud-based applications and solutions. This can go from small server applications to big microservices that talk to each other. As a Cloud Developer, you design  applications on the cloud, but also set up existing applications so they can run on the cloud. Usually there's no frond-end needed for these applications. As a Cloud Developer, you're more hands-on with the providers than regular Back-End Developers.

Your responsibilities include: 

Implementing functional requirements in a working (technical) solution

Reviewing, testing and refactoring to ensure the system's correctness throughout the lifecycle

Anticipating and communicating (technical) caveats to other developers and stakeholders

Delivering quality software that is maintainable and extendable by other developers

Staying informed and up-to-date of the latest technologies and practices


Your skills

To start working as a Cloud Developer, you need decent knowledge of at least one cloud solution provider. You also need good problem-solving skills, research skills, and an analytical mindset. To communicate with all stakeholders, good communication skills are important as well. 


You can write decent code

You have basic design knowledge

You have knowledge of the Cloud stack (Azure, AWS, Google Cloud)

You are familiar with containerisation and orchestration (Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift, etc.)

You have knowledge of Commandline tools (Windows, Linux)

You're familiar with Agile tools 

You speak and write English fluently

More about this organisation

Our mission is to attract, develop and retain the finest tech talent. We find the perfect match, so our consultants can fully develop their skills while also feeling happy in their jobs. 

What distinctly sets us apart, is our focus on training and coaching. Every Exellyst gets a generous personal training budget and is also assigned a Talent Development Manager (TDM). Your TDM is your point of contact for every issue you encounter, large or small. Our goals is to see you shine, grow and succeed faster than your peers who don’t benefit from the Exellys model.
