DevOps Cloud ArchitectLooking for prospective candidates
We're on the lookout for DevOps experienced cloud architects to grow our technical team here in Manchester. We're looking for prospective applications for future roles, from CANDIDATES ONLY and not recruiters. Thank you :)
At Steamhaus we design, build, monitor and maintain highly available cloud-based hosting solutions that are fast, scalable and cost-effective.
We work with digital and creative agencies, online retailers, app developers and content publishers and provide excellent technical expertise and first-class customer service.
As a DevOps Cloud Architect at Steamhaus, you’ll get to:
- Work with customers in a consultancy environment, providing expertise and guidance.
- Be responsible for the design and implementation of a customer’s public cloud (AWS/GCP/Azure) infrastructure using the latest and greatest technologies and tools.
- Work for a fantastic, future-embracing cloud consultancy that values all its staff, not just the sales staff.
To apply for this role you’ll need the following characteristics and experience:
- Excellent communication skills and the ability to work well as part of a small team. We’re only looking for team players here.
- Experience working in a customer-facing services company, e.g. managed hosting or consultancy. Ability to communicate with customers and context-switch between multiple projects.

Experience we’re looking for – all are not essential but the ideal candidate will have a broad experience with as many of these areas as possible:
- Working with public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure, OpenStack) and PaaS (Docker, Kubernetes, CloudFoundry, OpenShift). Experience with other virtualisation technologies (VMware, KVM, Xen) is also helpful.
- Administering and optimising a range of application, caching, web, database and message queueing servers (Ruby/PHP/Python, Varnish, Nginx/Apache, MySQL/PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ/ZeroMQ, etc)
- Infrastructure orchestration and configuration management tools (Terraform, CloudFormation, Puppet, Ansible)
- Implementation of DevOps methodologies, specifically Continuous testing, deployment and delivery pipelines and toolsets (Jenkins)
- A knowledge of scripting and programming languages (Ruby, Python, GoLang)
