Cloud / Database Engineer
95% Remote and 5% Leeds, UK · Full TimeAzure SQL Server Hybrid + Multicloud DevOps
We're an Azure Cloud Solution Partner (CSP), Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Microsoft Gold Partner for Cloud and Data Platform, specialising in high-performance systems and databases. We have a proven track record of building and supporting complex systems with a strong focus on continuous optimisations and improvements.
The company is at a very exciting stage of its growth, recently investing heavily in our custom systems and processes, meaning that we’re in a strong position to capitalise on an already market-leading position.
“xTEN is powered by our custom monitoring solution (xMP) and a virtual dog called TED (long story) who we've trained to sniff out issues, evaluate incidents and fetch the data required for the engineers to make an informed decision. You'll help to develop TED and other in-house tools to banish monotonous tasks and automate the mundane, enabling the team to stay lean but do more.”
I’m interested, what’s the role?
A typical day could include any of the following:
Delivering exceptional service to our customers.
Designing, building and managing cloud estates using IaC solutions such as Terraform, ARM templates and Azure Bicep.
Developing an industry-unique approach to Managed Services, working on internal tooling and processes to simplify our work and ensure we get the information we need.
Supporting SQL Server instances through complete lifecycles (build, maintain, update, migrate).
Develop and improve our Azure recommendation engine.
The freedom to tear any of that up if you've got a better solution.
Before you apply, make sure we're your cup of tea
Do you thrive with autonomy and having the freedom to get stuff done properly? Make sure that this is you. Our software and processes keep us honest, but we don’t have anyone dishing out work and chasing. The only one giving you some stick will be TED.
We have a unique environment for learning with a team of keen learners and natural mentors. Training is made up of 70% work experience, 20% self-learning and 10% training, which comes from internal knowledge sharing and your training budget.
You’ll become an expert in the tools you use. We believe that using fewer technologies properly is better than using many technologies inefficiently. We’re not fans of the “use everything, deliver nothing” approach.
You won’t be expected to run a team because there won’t be loads of people. We’re lean, and we aim to stay that way. Therefore, juniors and seniors alike get involved in whatever’s needed and speak directly with our wonderful customers.
