    Junior Cloud Engineer

    Occupational Purpose and Context

    Junior cloud engineers support cloud engineers in building, servicing, and maintaining cloud-based services and applications for a company. Additionally, they support businesses’ migration to cloud-based solutions that align with a company’s infrastructure. Junior cloud engineers can choose to specialize in a more specific role, such as cloud architecting (designing components for a company’s cloud architecture and position in cloud environments). They often implement and configure cloud-based infrastructure and software, maintain cloud-based services, create operating procedures, identify and correct problems, or create production and migration schedules. They provide support to the end user using various cloud platforms and provide solutions for end users having technical difficulties. Junior cloud engineers may also manage virtualized data centers, including servers, storage, backup and recovery, and networking.
