Cloud Computing Technologies

Does the idea of a stable, mundane workday put you off? Are you the sort of person who thrives in a challenging, fast-paced work environment? Do you want your career’s worth to be measured in terms of the quality of your most complex assignments instead of the number of your ordinary ones? Does the idea of a flexible job description that has you tackling a different sort of task every day excite you?

If your answer to any of those four questions was a resounding “YES!” then we’d like to throw an opportunity your way. Cloud Computing Technologies is on the hunt for an AWS DevOps Engineer, and if you’ve got the technical chops that fit the role, we’d love to have you! But before we start telling you what we want from you, why don’t we tell you a little bit about ourselves first.

Cloud Computing Technologies is a cloud solutions provider that’s been working with cloud-based technologies for just about as long as they’ve been around. We’ve handled tasks at every level, from systems architecture design, development, and deployment, to large scale migration, integration, and up-scaling projects, as well as robust and dynamic solutions design. We’ve been around for a while, and handled a great variety of tasks, is what we’re saying, and now we’re looking to add to our team with a mind to face the future head-on!

If you drop by any one of our offices in Arizona, Massachusetts, California, Colorado, Washington D.C., you’ll likely witness a small team of dedicated professionals buzzing about the place, working, talking or just planning out their days. What you won’t see is a bunch of people sitting amidst grey walls at their desks bored out of their minds – we’re not about that life. We want to empower tomorrow’s leading professionals, and we wouldn’t be able to do that if we clung to the idea of a classical office environment.

We’re all about flexibility within the workspace, and that flexibility isn’t limited to just the choice to work from home or from the office. We believe that the office should be a place that welcomes you, and in doing so, brings out the best of your latent creative and innovative talents. It’s a place you enjoy being at and a place that helps you be the best you can be.

Every day brings its own challenges and its own rewards. Sometimes people come in, and sometimes they stay at home. Our one constant is the positivity we try to maintain around the workplace environment, even when that environment extends to your home workspace.

Now that we’ve told you who we are, what we do, and how we do it, let’s get to what we’ll need from you. To start:
