Senior Cloud Engineer (AWS / GCP / AZURE)

Full time

Adam Smith Building, Thomas R. Malthusstraat 1, Amsterdam
Uren per week
40 uur

Do you want to play the leading role in the transformation from on-premise platform to the public cloud?

You are the expert when it comes to building and managing secure Cloud services. You become really enthusiastic about Pipelines and concepts like "Infrastructure as Code" and “Configuration Management”. Together with a great team, who is responsible for the entire IT platform of Knab, you are one of the pioneers in our transformation to the Public Cloud. You embrace existing resources and techniques where you can and where necessary.

Here’s a little taste of your challenge…

  • Transform our on-premise environments to different Cloud solutions (SaaS, PaaS and IaaS).
  • Continually look for improvements and implementing future-proof, scalable solutions.
  • Strong cooperation with our SCRUM teams to facilitate them in the best possible way in the development of innovative products and services from Knab.
  • Keep the built solutions optimally available.


  1. A challenging position in a young, fast-growing and ambitious FinTech company where you can leave your suit at home (because you cannot play table football with it).
  2. We like to have fun. There is no sense in coming to work everyday if you don’t like the people you work with.
  3. Freedom to take your own initiative and responsibilities.
  4. Weekly drinks in our own bar, daily fresh fruit and the best coffee (with a cookie) you could wish for.
  5. A brand new office! Yes, we are moving to Adam Smith Building in Amsterdam Riekerpolder in November 2018 so there is more space for new colleagues. It will be a great place for work that is fresh, light, warm, transparent, connected, welcoming and flexible.
  6. The right laptop for you. Do you prefer MacOS, Windows or Linux? You choose.
  7. 26 holidays. And you can buy more holidays if you promise to come back.
  8. Money. If you are the perfect candidate, we expect that we have to pay you a salary of approx 67K EUR per annum. We also provide a mobile phone, public transport card and contribute to your pension scheme.


See our colleagues in action during our first Hackathon event on 14-15 june 2018 to unleash creativity, design, and coding skills:


There is no set route to become a great Cloud Engineer at Knab. But to be successful in this role, this is the kind of profile we have in mind:

  1. An expert in the field of virtualisation or cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure or GCP.
  2. You have experience with transforming on-premise environments to different Cloud solutions.
  3. Containerization / microservices, network technologies and infrastructure tooling such as routers, vpn's, load balancers and firewalls have no secrets for you.
  4. Able to analyse and change an architecture.
  5. Familiar with Agile / Scrum methodology.
  6. Extensive experience in writing and optimising code (for roll-out and updating infrastructure).

Note: You need to be eligible to work in the EU.

Knab embraces diversity. Not only because it makes our work better; it’s also more fun. Obviously, we don’t care about where your cradle is nor about the color of your birth card. Do you believe in something or nothing? Are you walking hand in hand with Henry or Henriette? We find it interesting, but it doesn’t matter. As long as you are an entrepreneur and optimistic and want to use all your talent for Knab.
