Coolblue. Once, it was only a college start-up. Today, it`s an online enterprise that`s made up of 8 physical stores and over 325 specialized webshops. Ever since we began in 1999, we`ve had but one goal: to make customers happy. We provide expert advice and we’re obsessed with customer satisfaction. Together, we work our butts off in order to amaze our customers.
As a cloud engineer you bring Coolblue's cloud platform to the next level by making sure it's easy to deploy and maintain, while also building new services.
+ You maintain and standardize our deployment pipelines, so the developers can release their applications smoothly and reliably
+ You make it easy for development teams to create their “infrastructure as code“ for our AWS cloud environment
+ You will enable and empower developers to follow best practices while deploying their applications
+ You automate recurring tasks to make your job (and that of the developers) easier

You start the day with the stand-up and together with your teammates you make a plan for the next 24 hours. After that, it’s time to grab some coffee and get your brain pumping to refine and brainstorm user stories that will improve the Cloud Platform and Developer Experience. You pair up with a teammate to create new extension points for CloudFormation resources to support automation around the platform. Phew, it’s lunch time ready to grab some fresh food from the Coolblue canteen!
After lunch, two developers join the room asking for advice on how their new application can make use of DynamoDB auto-scaling and how to architect a serverless stack. You join the discussion and give them pointers of how to achieve this.
Later, you pick up a story about improving the automation around CI/CD pipelines. You pivot the solution together with two development teams to accelerate and optimize the speed and quality of deployments.
'As a Cloud Engineer, you and your team innovate to bring the cloud platform to a next level. You and your teams of superheroes make sure that Coolblue will have a scalable platform to deploy its applications on. The variety, responsibility, and the great colleagues make this a fun job!' Jeroen, Cloud Engineer
