Cloud Engineer

QuantSpark - Home Based

QuantSpark is a boutique strategic analytics consultancy based in London. Our hybrid team combines the best of strategy consulting, data science, analytics and product development to deliver creative analytical solutions to public and private sector clients. As a partner to our clients, we strive to solve business problems by deploying our unique understanding of delivering effective analytics engagements in commercial settings where impact is essential.
We go beyond the remit of traditional strategy consultancies by blending advanced data analytics and software engineering capabilities to build analytical tools that deliver long-lasting value – the tools and solutions we create become embedded in our clients’ daily operations. Our ever-growing client base consists of FTSE 100 retailers, prestigious Private Equity houses and governments.
As a Cloud Engineer at QuantSpark, you will be essential in helping us scale up our work in developing analytics platforms for several of our major clients. You will work as an integrated member of our multidisciplinary squads of strategists, data analytics consultants, data scientists, and software engineers. You will be able to switch between squads on a regular basis, gaining broad experience of our range of projects. Whichever squad you support, you will support the development and operations of the squad’s software. This will include creating or extending the software development pipeline, the continuous integration and deployment of the code, the provisioning of the infrastructure and its ongoing monitoring. Our squads are small and close-knit, so you will have plenty of opportunities to bring in your own expertise and introduce your preferred best practices to this growing function within QuantSpark.
Prefer to work remotely? That's fine with us, we may be based in London but we're happy to speak to you if you live elsewhere in the UK.

Requirements:
The key qualities we are looking for are Analytical ability, Technical creativity, Grit, a Desire to learn and clear Communications.
We welcome applications from any educational background - We don't expect you to be brilliant at everything, but we value a broad set of competencies as much as experience, so any interest in people management, data science, strategy or product management would be appreciated as well.
Candidates must be based in the UK in order to qualify for this position
