About Us:

We’re Cudo! We have several strings to our bow but this role is dedicated to our cloud platform.

Cudo Compute is a fairer cloud computing platform for everyone. It provides access to distributed resources by leveraging underutilised computing globally on idle & spare data centre hardware. It allows users to deploy virtual machines on the world's first democratised cloud platform, finding the optimal resources in the ideal location at the best price.

Cudo Compute aims to democratise the public cloud by delivering a more sustainable economic, environmental, and societal model for computing by empowering businesses and individuals to monetise unused resources.

Our platform allows organisations and developers to deploy, run and scale based on demands without the constraints of centralised cloud environments. As a result, we realise significant availability, proximity and cost benefits for customers by simplifying their access to a broader pool of high-powered computing and distributed resources at the edge.

We are scaling fast and hiring talented people globally to join us on our journey. Regardless of age, education, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or any personal characteristics, we want everyone to feel welcome. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive equal opportunity workplace everyone can call home.

It’s a brand new role for us at Cudo.

  • Cloud expansion, including advising on adding additional hardware and network reconfiguration
  • Performing cloud health checks and advising potential improvements to increase performance and redundancy
  • Working closely with Cudo Compute sales, engineering & support teams
  • Adopting and advocating Cudo's company vision, always considering our ethics and environmental stances

    • “I work for a Cloud company already”
    • “Cloud? Completed it, mate!”
    • “I have previous experience in a service provider orientated role from when I worked at [insert company]”

    In all seriousness, if in the past you’ve been responsible for platform infrastructure - then we’d love to hear from you!
