What do Cloud Solution Architects do? 

Cloud Solution Architects (CSAs) are a crucial part of any organization’s cloud computing strategy. Their expertise allows them to develop secure and cost-effective cloud solutions that are tailored to the  company's requirements. Here they are responsible for designing and developing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud solutions for a variety of projects. They analyze requirements, assess available technologies, and map out the best strategies to fulfill the needs. Cloud Solution Architects are experts in many of the widely used cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. 

They have an in-depth knowledge of software development best practices, architecture patterns and design principles. They are especially responsible for ensuring scalability, availability and performance of the cloud solutions they develop. By leveraging their expertise in infrastructure automation tools such as Chef, Puppet, or Ansible, Cloud Solution Architects ensure that their cloud solutions remain secure, scalable and cost-effective. 

In addition to designing and developing cloud solutions, Cloud Solution Architects also provide guidance to teams working on the implementation of these solutions. They monitor the performance of existing systems, identify areas for improvement and develop strategies for making them more efficient. By leveraging their knowledge and experience, Cloud Solution Architects can help organizations maximize their investments in cloud computing technologies.

What are future trends Cloud Solution Architects need to know about?

The rapid evolution of cloud technology means that CSAs need to stay abreast of the latest innovations, such as serverless architectures, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), edge computing, software-defined networking (SDN), and more.

Cloud Solution Architects should also pay attention to the shift towards managed services, allowing companies to outsource the management of their cloud infrastructure and focus on developing their applications. This trend is expected to grow in the future as more businesses seek to focus on innovation instead of managing complex infrastructure. 
As more and more companies move to the cloud, security becomes a top priority for all organisations. Germany is at the top of the list for attackers when it comes to industrial espionage. CSAs also need to keep up with changes in compliance and security standards.

Why are Cloud Solution Architects in such demand?

Cloud Solution Architects play an integral role in helping businesses select the right cloud-based solution for their particular needs. With their knowledge and experience, they are able to design the most appropriate architecture for the business's operations. They use their technical knowledge to build cloud-based solutions that can integrate with existing on-premise systems and provide access to new features and capabilities.
They know exactly how to optimise the performance of the cloud and ensure that it remains safe for all users. They also have the skills to troubleshoot any problems that may arise during the development and implementation of a cloud solution.

Overall, Cloud Solution Architects are an invaluable asset for businesses looking to leverage the power of cloud computing. Their expertise and experience are critical for successful implementations that increase efficiency and reduce costs. With their help, businesses can enjoy greater cost savings, scalability, agility, and security. This makes Cloud Solution Architects a highly sought-after asset in today's market.

With alphacoders we have found a strong partner for our tech recruiting. The feedback loops were short and efficient.

Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a PL/SQL developer. Thanks to the professional support of alphacoders, we were able to fill the position in a very short time. The fact that we worked very closely with the tech recruiters and that we had the same understanding of the market and the special requirements played a major role in our success. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.

Gabi Wegner
People & Relations Manager — MOIA

We really appreciate working with alphacoders because they really have a clue about tech and take time to understand who we need for MOIA and for our individual teams.

Maik Gronau
CEO - GWA Hygiene

alphacoders has become an integral part of our tech recruiting. We have been working together for over 2 years now and have already been able to successfully fill several different positions in IT. As a startup, we very much appreciate the all-encompassing advice from profile sharpening to candidate selection and support in optimising our own internal hiring process. We are very happy to have alphacoders at our side.

Franziska Mehlhorn
Head of People & Organisational Development — Picdrop

We have been working successfully with alphacoders for some time. What I personally like very much is the uncomplicated and personal exchange, as well as the quick occupation time, which has only lasted an average of 3 months so far. alphacoders understands their trade and we are very happy to have them on our team.

Ingo Fraedrich
General Manager — Veterinärmedizinisches Dienstleistungszentrum GmbH

When looking for qualified employees, we like to rely on specialists. They know the market and the target group and can advise accordingly. So it happens that we have been working with alphacoders since February 2020 and have been able to expand our development team several times. We have found the right service provider for us

Julius Martini
CEO — TimberTom

We have already commissioned alphacoders twice to support us in tech recruiting and they convinced us with the first candidate for both positions (frontend & fullstack developer). The cooperation was very uncomplicated, at eye level and characterized by direct communication. We are very happy to have alphacoders on our side.

Ralf Fohrmann
Head of Human Resources - prophete

Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a NAV developer. The special thing about this was the complexity of the market situation: it is a very special position with a very narrow pool of candidates and a very loyal target group. We solved it through trusting and effective communication and adjustments to the profile. One key was certainly that we opened up for a fully remote position and were thus able to find and successfully recruit the right candidate.

Susanne Hasenstab
Head of HR - WEITBLICK® GmbH & Co. KG

Last year we worked with alphacoders for the first time. The cooperation was characterised by professional and very personal support, as well as profound contacts within our target group. What was special for us was that we were actually only looking for one PHP developer, but because of the but due to the suitable selection of candidates we directly hired 2 developers and that within only 3 months. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.

Tobias Schumacher
CTO & Co-Founder — Closelink

Working with alphacoders was our first experience with a recruiter. We particularly liked the transparent communication and the summary of the search in the form of reports and figures. This helped us to better understand the candidate market and gain deeper insights into recruitment from IT specialists. We can recommend alphacoders 100%.

Oliver Kühne
CTO — Monsterzeug

Professional and goal-oriented, I would work with alphacoders again at any time. I've recommended them both internally to other departments and to external stakeholders.

Tihomir Sablic
Head of IT - heyworld GmbH

We have been working with alphacoders for more than 2 years now and have had very good experiences so far. The relationship is characterised by trust, solution-oriented advice and open communication at eye level. Through their input, we have already been able to successfully hire 2 backend developers and also rely on their expertise for further tech positions.

Jan Thonemann
Abteilungsleiter Forschung / Entwicklung — PROSOZ

Finding the right people is one of, if not the most key component to an organization's success. At alphacoders it's not about quantity, but about quality. Every candidate that is introduced is always worth talking to and we have already found a lot of great colleagues through alphacoders. The short weekly exchange ensure that your ideas are understood and that you are always up to date.

Christina Bombeck
HR Managerin - Fundis Reitsport

We have commissioned alphacoders to search for 2 web developers. The challenge is that we are active in a special niche in e-commerce with the topic of equestrian sports and ideally the ideal candidate should also identify with our sport. In addition to good communication and consultation, we jointly implemented an effective hiring process. alphacoders not only managed to attract many women for this position, but we even managed to hire someone with a love for our sport. We were able to fill both positions with alphacoders and would hire them again anytime.

Bianca Potapski
HR Managerin — Soil & More Impacts GmbH

We really enjoyed working with alphacoders, it was a professional collaboration on an equal footing right from the start. alphacoders puts itself very well in the client's position and thanks to the regular agreements it always ran smoothly. We have successfully recruited a senior Phyton developer with alphacoders and would recommend alphacoders to others.
