Cloud Engineer

Full-time · Utrecht, The Netherlands

As a Cloud engineer, you are responsible for the DevOps/SDLC environments for the entire company and all customers, including production environments with associated availability. You will work closely with multidisciplinary teams to develop software and cloud environments for our customers. We have a lot of AWS knowledge in our DevOps team and are therefore looking for someone who is strong in Azure.

About the role

We host the software that we build for our customers with one of the larger cloud providers. Especially AWS, but also Azure we see more and more. Where possible, we use the cloud native solutions of the respective providers.

The infrastructure of most environments is built based on our own Terraform Infrastructure-as-code blueprints, so we don't reinvent the wheel for every customer, but we can offer a standardised solution (which we can do very quickly). Of course, every customer is different and our standard will have to be tailored to their needs.

In practice, you will be working a lot with our internal standards, developing those further and setting up customer environments in collaboration with our development teams, who themselves speak a fair bit of Terraform!

In addition to setting it up, we are also responsible for running our customers' environments. This means: making sure they remain available at all times, continue to perform well and, last but not least, remain secure.

We would like to expand our DevOps team and complete it with someone who brings Azure experience in particular.


  • Responsibility for our DevOps/SDLC environments for the entire company and all clients, including production environments with associated availability.
  • Working with multidisciplinary teams to develop software and cloud environments for our customers.
  • Devise and implement DevOps solutions together with the development team and the customer.
  • Ensuring that we deliver elegant solutions that are scalable, maintainable and secure and therefore 'production worthy & robust'.
  • Making a positive contribution to the engineering culture within Lab Digital.


  • 5+ years of experience with developing and managing modern (Azure) DevOps environments for software organisations, and the discipline of site reliability engineering

  • Very experienced with the automation of various processes within this discipline (by means of Python / Bash etc)
  • Knowledge and experience with cloud native environments and setting up and managing them by means of infrastructure-as-code (Terraform), within Azure
  • Experience with setting up and managing Continuous Integration & Delivery pipelines for various types of software products
  • Knowledge and experience of setting up DTAP environments for various software products, including setting up the necessary monitoring/observability solutions
  • Knowledge of and experience with working with Docker, both in a CI/CD context and in production using AWS ECS/Fargate, among others
  • Experience with 'securing' various types of environments, in different cloud environments
  • Able to deliver technical documentation for the environments you set up

  • A background as a Software Engineer
  • Experience with setting up DevOps environments for Python and/or TypeScript stacks
  • Experience/interest in coaching/mentoring development teams in the correct application of DevOps principles
