Senior AWS Architect




IT Architecture

Project description:

Senior AWS consultant with thorough knowledge of AWS with 5 years relevant experience with similar companies like our client more specific in the infrastructure services department.

As a part of our team, you are responsible for the architectural decisions, engineering, integration and maintenance of the client cloud platform.

Currently we actively manage AWS & Azure cloud environments and keep an eye on other cloud platforms.

The focus is on technology/infrastructure services, not the usage and development methodologies that use the cloud platform. The latter is handled by DevOps teams with whom you will be working closely.

You assist in feasibility studies to take on new technological services or improvements and

help design the services with focus on security, maintainability, flexibility and efficiency. You work together with architects and analysts to come to a proper final design, product owners and scrum masters to govern the exercise and its allocated resources, and software engineering to ensure effective positioning and service offerings.


You maintain operational stability and efficiency in a production setting, and as such are able to rotate in the team to guarantee a 24/7 support week (on call) and/or weekend work for releases (by exception – because we release during office hours). The regular working hours are flexible.

Location-wise, the team is mainly situated in Mechelen.

The team you take part in delivers engineering and maintenance towards multiple business units and departments. As such, you will have to deal with multiple customer bases, each having their own set of requirements and time constraints. This also implies that processes such as incident, release management, disaster recovery, … and the scope of work can be volatile as this is a young platform in a highly evolving ecosystem.
