Senior Cloud Engineer at Coolblue (Rotterdam, Netherlands)

As a Senior Cloud Deployment Engineer at Coolblue you help our developers deploy 100 pull requests per day.

What you tell people at parties

"I've got my head in the clouds all day long."

What you really do

  • You maintain and improve our deployment pipelines, so the developers can smoothly and reliably release their applications.
  • You create and maintain the infrastructure as code  for our AWS cloud environment.
  • You support developers in deploying their applications.
  • You experiment with new technology to research future use.
  • You automate recurring tasks to make your job (and that of the developers) easier.

How you do it

  • You like to be challenged. You see the obstacles to get to a cloud-based infrastructure as an opportunity to learn.
  • You share knowledge with your Tech Development colleagues to make them self-sufficient. Better teach a man to fish than to give him one, right?
  • You stay cool when things break. You search for the root cause and dont stop until you find it. Once you do, you make sure this cant fail again.
  • You don't wait for things to come to you. You go out and get them. You're self motivated, communicative and get things done.
  • You work together, because you like to learn from your colleagues. You coach your team members and provide them with honest feedback.
  • You have your own opinion and youre able to voice it in a constructive discussion.


You will be part of the Cloud Deployment Team: a team consisting of smart, experienced and highly motivated engineers who want to take our IT Development department to the the next step in cloud infrastructure. The engineers in this team know everything about the systems of our web platform.  Your team will be supported by a Team Lead, Product Owner and a Scrum Master.

A day at the office

During the stand-up, you agree to work with Jamie (our cloud expert) on moving some domains to Route 53. The configuration is not complex, but you need to call with our current hosting provider. It's a bit of a challenge as it is hard to get the right information about what they are doing and when. However, you work closely with them and together you get it done by lunch.

In the afternoon you talk to the Product Assortment development team and discuss how we can use data from Google to give customers assortment recommendations. You discuss different options for implementation with the team and agree to join them next sprint for a few days to create an API Gateway with some Lambda functions and an Elasticache Redis cluster.
At the end of the day, Frank (senior developer from your team) demonstrates the new solution for the assets of the website. They are now being served from an S3 bucket, with CloudFront caching in front of it. It works great, so well take it into Production next week. After that, it's time to go out and have a nice specialty beer. You do check your beers in Untappd, right?

What we're asking

  • You are smart and have some way to prove it.
  • You are awesome with Linux, Windows or both! Since we have .NET, Delphi and PHP stacks we can use your experience.
  • You are strong with configuration management tools like Puppet, Chef, or Ansible.
  • You believe in configuration management - if its not managed, its not real.
  • You know scripting and have development experience in Python, Ruby, Javascript or plain old Bash.
  • You automate all the things from bootstrap to backup.
  • You have a DevOps mindset with a strong drive to get things done. You automate. You collaborate. You communicate.
  • You have experience working with CloudFormation. Certification is a plus, otherwise we'll make sure you get it.
  • You have done similar work before, at least for 3 years.
  • You think big and start small. In the end, it's about getting things done.
  • You take pride in what you do, but welcome feedback.
  • You are adaptable and don't mind stepping outside of your comfort zone.
  • You get bonus points if you have experience working with Scrum and if you have experience working with other cloud providers. You also get bonus points for writing a nice cover letter, you would make team lead Sander Knape very happy with that!
  • You are willing to relocate to Rotterdam or somewhere nearby.

What we're offering

  • Money.
  • Over 30 training courses at our own Coolblue University.
  • A 10% discount on all of our products.
  • An awesome workplace. With freshly prepared meals, monthly TGIF drinks, epic Coolblue parties, and an informal, playful office space.
  • 25 leave days. As long as you'll promise to come back.

  • Dutch language courses. To help you become a Rotterdammert.
  • An international work environment. With colleagues from places like Belgium, Spain, Australia, Mexico, and Italy.
