Cloud Systems Engineer

Location: New York, NY

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Position Overview:

Logicworks provides a fast-paced, dynamic work environment where engineers work closely with specialists in all areas to provide unique yet scalable solutions for our clients. The System Engineer’s role is to work directly within a dedicated support team deploying new cloud-based services for our clients and to providing ongoing managed services of our cloud platforms

Position Responsibilities:

The Cloud Systems Engineer is responsible for a combination of system administration and platform engineering with direct responsibility for the builds and ongoing support of multiple clients’ environments. You will help drive the design of solutions implemented for clients and work with other Engineers in the maintenance of our system architecture and preparation for new technical implementations (hardware, platform, product and service deployments).

You will get the chance to collaborate with other expert engineers and our R&D team to continue finding new areas that can be improved by bringing a DevOps mindset to all of the areas we manage – AWS, private clouds, backup systems and monitoring solutions. You will also get the chance to further your skills in adjacent areas by serve as an escalation point for builds, implementations, and support issues of our clients who do not have dedicated support teams.

This is a great opportunity to build your skills in both depth and breadth in a highly technical, fast-paced environment while working with a wide variety of cutting edge, public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.

Position Requirements:

Our Cloud Systems Engineers play a critical role in the success of our clients and are called upon to design and support the right solutions for our clients. Beyond providing support, they must effectively work in a consultative role for each client in person, by phone and email to make recommendations to improve performance of the client’s solution and to proactively plan for client driven changes and growth. All successful candidates will possess a high degree of self-management, personal accountability, strong communication and business acumen. Continual knowledge transfer, training and mentoring of more junior staff is expected. All Engineers are expected to participate in an on call rotation for off-hours escalations with other members of their dedicated support team.
