Equinox IT

Cloud Architect

Cloud Solutions – Auckland, CBD
Department Cloud Solutions
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

At Equinox IT we provide you with variety, challenging work and opportunities to accelerate your career. You will work with a highly experienced, multi-skilled and effective consulting team.

We are searching for a Consulting Cloud Architect to join our Auckland team and help our clients to plan and carry out digital transformation into cloud services.  We don't just migrate into cloud Infrastructure (IaaS), but also to transform to Platform (PaaS) and Software (SaaS) services, to reduce TCO and improve organisational agility.

Who are we?

Equinox IT is about putting people first, being open and honest, sharing our knowledge and making a difference. We pride ourselves on being able to take good care of our people.

We are a New Zealand-owned technical IT consultancy with the expertise of the big guys, but with the 'give a sh*t' attitude of a local IT consultancy. We provide expert IT advice, cloud and technology delivery and training – right-sized for NZ conditions and grounded in our practitioner experience. We have over 50 people based in our Wellington and Auckland offices.

We invest in our people too. We don't pigeonhole. We support a breadth of knowledge in our consultants, not just depth. Which is why people choose to stay with us.

The role

As one of our Consulting Architects, you will be able to:

  • Consult with a variety of clients, across multiple domains and situations
  • Provide thought leadership, technical expertise and architectural advice
  • Mitigate risk and the business impact of technical recommendations or decisions
  • Form and grow long-term trusted advisor relationships with clients
  • Share your knowledge and expertise with the wider business and potentially deliver training
  • Participate internally within Equinox IT, mentor others and contribute to the ongoing development of services we provide

What we are looking for

  • A good fit to our company and the client work that we do. This means; teammate, sharing what you know, ethical, driven to make a difference, curious, confident without being arrogant
  • Technical pedigree, that may be spread across different technologies, and is grounded in real-world experience with technical solutions and complex business situations
  • Breadth and depth of architectural experience in cloud and/or infrastructure, specifically Azure and AWS
  • Proven experience in migrating and transforming workloads into IaaS, PaaS and SaaS – such as Azure, Office 365 and AWS – with a focus on change management across People, Processes and Platforms
  • Understanding and experience in DevOps and CI/CD; including automated scripting, scripting and deployment in highly-available environments
  • Experience in Operational and Cost Management principals and toolsets for cloud platforms
  • A ‘can do’ attitude with a hybrid of a hands-on and consulting approach to customer solutions
  • An understanding of the fundamentals and importance of good architectural decisions
  • Superb communication skills, with a willingness to learn and share knowledge through coaching, mentoring and training.

In return for your skills and experience, you will get to join a business that has an impeccable reputation for providing stellar consulting services, work with some of the best in their field and be a part of our team who are fully inclusive. Our clients know us as a consultancy that breeds success through investing in our team.

Equinox IT is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

Note for Non-New Zealand residents:

While we welcome international enquiries, we will only consider and respond to candidates for this vacancy who are legally entitled to work in New Zealand and have obtained work permit status. This is due to some of the strict requirements our clients need pertaining to security clearance. We also expect that candidates can make themselves available for face-to-face interviews in New Zealand.
