It'll definitely help for you to be detail-oriented and a skilled problem solver, because you'll also be helping us to streamline our processes-and automating them where applicable.

  • Working on the Cloud FinOps optimization backlog
  • Develop and deliver business cases that pull together the costs, expected savings, and benefits of making changes in order to optimize and establish goals and metrics which create the basis for action

  • Able to work independently and respond rapidly in a fast-changing business environment
  • Strong sense of team
  • Innate curiosity. Cloud economics, and more specifically FinOps, is a brand-new concept that is still being defined and understood, so this role requires a passion for nascent and novel concepts.
  • Challenge current thinking in constructive ways

  • Knowledge of and ideally experience with the emerging Cloud FinOps model and foundation.
