Cloud Engineer

As a cloud engineer, you take Coolblue’s cloud platform to the next level by making sure it’s easy to deploy and maintain, while also building new services.

    Pros and cons

    • 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 need to keep up with the latest news for the pubquiz.


    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.

    Your specifications


    • You are awesome with Windows, but are not afraid of touching Linux as well! Since we have .NET, Delphi and PHP stacks we can use your experience.

    • You know scripting and have development experience in Python, Ruby, Javascript or plain old Bash.

    • You have experience with configuration management tools like Puppet, Chef, or Ansible.

    • You believe in configuration management - if it's not managed, it's not real.

    • You 'automate all the things' from bootstrap to backup.

    • You have some experience working with any cloud environment, preferably AWS.

    • You get bonus points if you have experience working with Scrum.


    Included by default


    • Money.

    • Over 30 training courses at our own Coolblue University.

    • 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.

    • Travel allowance and a retirement plan.

    • An office at the best possible location. It's only a short stumble away from Rotterdam Central Station. Or a 2-minute walk.

    • Relocation assistance, from a to z (if you live abroad).

    • Dutch language courses. To help you become a Rotterdammert.

    • An international work environment. With colleagues from places like Belgium, Spain, Australia, Mexico, and Italy.
