Working at UKCloud
UKCloud is a young, dynamic company that offers innovative and responsive cloud solutions to the UK public sector. We operate a disruptive and ground-breaking business model with a clear vision to revolutionise the procurement of IT Services to local and central government. Our uniqueness is gaining widespread recognition and we are proud to have won many awards including being named a “Cool Vendor” by analyst firm, Gartner; Cloud Provider Innovation of the Year at the UK IT Industry Awards 2014 topping the Pathfinder 20 index of the UK’s most exciting emerging technology companies, and the winner of The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 in 2016.
Formed in 2012, UKCloud is based in Farnborough (Hampshire) and Corsham (Wiltshire). We currently have a highly talented team of over 170 people and we’re growing! We are keen to hear from people that want a rewarding career and who want to make a difference in an exciting and growing sector – is this you?
Here are three excellent reasons for joining us!
We are passionate for change!
We are already making a measurable difference to the provision of IT in the UK public sector. This makes UKCloud an exciting and purposeful place to work! Every single person that works for us feels part of a team and shares our passion and enthusiasm about the difference we’re making. Wouldn’t you like to go home at the end of each day with the satisfaction of knowing you’ve done something positive for the UK?
We are pushing the limits of technology.
There are no boundaries here! You will have the opportunity to gain real in-depth knowledge and understanding of the technology you work with. We will empower you to do that by implementing technology at scale and pushing limits. Needless to say we deploy some of the best products and tools available, and already have our name against some improvements in VMware. We expect the technical knowledge and creativity of our people to be tested regularly and want to offer you the opportunity to be part of that.
You have the opportunity!
As a company we believe in challenging everything, including the way we work. Orthodoxy is not in our vocabulary! If you’re a developer, why wouldn’t you champion some changes to our products or run a team meeting? If you’ve got the desire to do something, we won’t hold you back just because of your job title. Or because you are new! We encourage innovation at every level and are committed to giving every single person in our team the opportunity to contribute. Our success is based on innovation and pushing those boundaries.
Passionate about Change
Our heartfelt ambition is to change the way that IT is procured and used by the UK public sector. Change starts from within, so we continually strive to innovate, improve and develop our services to maintain and better our position. Our disruptive business model drives us to conduct frequent assessments of our services. By paying attention to our customers we can ensure that we deliver exactly what they want in terms of ground-breaking and cost-effective solutions.
As we grow our team, we’re looking for individuals who can help us achieve these ambitions. We’re looking for commitment, talent and innovation. We provide an environment where you are free to better yourself as well as our business. You will have the opportunity to work with demanding technologies, and develop an inherent understanding of what good customer care really is. If you have a passion for what we are doing then we know you will be successful, fulfilled and happy at UKCloud! But if you just want a predictable job to occupy your working hours then UKCloud is not the place for you.
