Cloud Solutions Architect

Job description

At Tropos, we are hiring a cloud solutions architect with 2-4 years of hands-on experience in designing data-driven solutions using public cloud.

Do you love to design data applications and do you love public cloud as much as we do? Does structuring data products and data platforms in a logical way make your day? And does blending technology design, architecture and business analytics come natural to you?

You’ll be working with the same tools, practices and standards as well-known global innovators and apply them to the early adopters and early majority in Belgium. For example, we only use current technologies such as Snowflake and AWS to ensure clients drive more value out of their data.

Your success will enable local and global organisations to make a meaningful impact. And you’ll have a great team of skilled colleagues to back you up along the way.

Your work will have a direct impact on the business. You will get the opportunity to work with modern tooling and use our internal library of building blocks and practices. This will be in close collaboration with your colleagues.

You’ll be a coach and guide to your team, a mentor to your clients and a contributor to our growth.
