We’re home to one of the most successful cloud engineering teams in the UK. We have a large group of engineers who deliver complex cloud platforms for exciting clients across a range of industries.Explore Roles
Over 90% of UK organisations have adopted at least one cloud service. The technology is driving digital transformation and enables organisations to become more agile, flexible, and sustainable than ever before.
But, not all organisations recognise the cloud’s true value. We aim to change that. To achieve this, we’re building one of the UK’s largest and most capable cloud engineering teams.
Together with our cloud partners, we work on some of the UK’s most ambitious cloud projects. From building the cloud platform that supports the NHS’ Test and Trace service to enabling one of the UK’s leading retail banks to become a market leader in Open Banking.
Our cloud engineering teams have the autonomy and freedom to work and experiment with cutting-edge technology, including deploying cloud Landing Zones, using the latest cloud native technology to provide serverless solutions and protecting solutions that serve tens of millions of users. Our cloud engineers gain valuable experience, and we have over 600 certified consultants in AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.
Jack Parsons - Cloud Engineer, BJSS
We believe that hybrid working should be about flexibility. As a Cloud Engineer at BJSS, you’ll have the option to work from home, a BJSS office, or from the client’s site, depending on your preference and the nature of the work to be completed. We’ve also introduced new office locations across the UK. Accessible to everyone as and when needed, these extra sites mean you’ll be under no pressure to relocate.

James Mittoo - Cloud Engineer
A cloud engineer engages in the practice of designing, building and operating cloud platforms. We build the platforms that allow others to build on – we provide a service to allow others to focus on what is important to them. How a cloud engineer achieves this is influenced by the tools and technologies used on a project and what the project needs to achieve.
Our industry moves rapidly – one of our cloud partners made over 450 service announcements in a single year! So to keep up with this a key skill is problem solving, being able to iteratively troubleshoot and really get into the detail of how the cloud works so you can use it as you need. Combined with this an understanding of the Software Delivery Lifecycle (SLDC) helps so you understand how the platform can support its users and can be integrated with the services created by those users. Caring about security and understanding how to make platforms secure is also very important, and being able to embed those principles into how people use the platform helps ensure that security is considered in everything done. Lastly but by no means least, having a passion for coding – both Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and scripting which is the principle way we interact with the cloud and make the magic happen!
A cloud engineer will typically be involved in the necessary Agile ceremonies for their delivery before focussing on delivering. It is impossible to state what a typical day will consist of beyond this, however, our cloud engineers will usually be involved in designing, building and operating the following for a project: Designing and configuring cloud services via Infrastructure as Code (IaC); Embedding good security practices into the platform; Operationally managing the platform as both being responsible for the observability of it and reacting to any alerts; Focusing on the cost and sustainability of the platform; Providing CI/CD services and using them.
