Role

The Lead Cloud Engineer position offers an excellent career and growth opportunity for a talented and highly-motivated professional with significant prior experience in I.T. operations and technical cloud operations.

Sourced is a small company that makes a tremendous impact and has specific knowledge and experience working in sophisticated, often complicated, and generally extensive, regulated environments. Our people are fearless and work in partnership with both client leadership and engineering teams to build world-class public cloud solutions in regulated and security-conscious verticals.

Reporting to the regional Head of Consulting/Managed Services, this newly created position is responsible for leading a team of enthusiastic, capable, and motivated cloud operations engineers within the North American Region, as well as operational interlocks with other regions. The role is responsible for building, mentoring, and scaling the team and building and strengthening relationships with our key managed services clients.

As an increasing number of large enterprises move their critical systems to the cloud, we are in need of passionate technical leaders to help our largest customers navigate the operational challenges of cloud platform operations. You will work one-on-one with our top-tier customers and partners, supporting not only the software development lifecycle as it applies to the cloud services but also the operations management of active services, and business relationships between the Customer, Sourced Group, and partners (such as Microsoft, AWS, and application development partners).

In this role, you will have the opportunity to help shape and execute a strategy to build and expand our operational capabilities for cloud platform management. You must possess customer-facing skills that enable you to represent the Sourced team, our capabilities, and our services within a customer's environment and drive discussions with senior personnel regarding incidents, trade-offs, best practices, and risk management.

You will leverage your broad experience, troubleshooting application, network, database, and architectural challenges, as well as guiding the team in using the suite of cloud-native and internal tools to drive operational excellence. You will, in tandem with the Service Delivery Manager, work across the customer organization to ensure applications are well designed, scale to their needs, maintain uptime whilst addressing any concerns regarding lifecycle, risk, and change impact. In this role, you will also act as the voice of the Customer within Sourced to resolve problems and to drive prioritization of business needs for our customers.

You should be comfortable engaging with technical teams as well as consultants who regularly influence the board and C-level executives of our Enterprise clients. The right candidate will have experience in managing cloud technology, as well as strategy with enterprise companies, demonstrated experience in developing strategic technical initiatives, and a proven track record of leading and driving complex customer engagements, and excellent communication skills.
