As a SysOps Engineer , you will help operate solutions for divisions going through a technological as well as organizational transformation. Working in a small group, you’ll support cloud operations by creating and automating daily cloud tasks, such as authentication, authorization, cost inquiries, account requests & others. We are a multi- cloud company (AWS, Azure & GCP), meaning that you will get to apply a diverse mix of tools and services. You will implement best practices and help teams across multiple divisions to build upon the solutions that you help support.

Hexagon has a number of divisions focused on different areas of business and each of them is developing cloud-based solutions. In addition to the divisions we operate a central R&D group under the direction of our CTO that we call the Innovation Hub. This group provides both hardware and software technologies. We aim to create innovative solutions where our core competencies in secure enterprise systems, simulation, AI, reality capture, design and operational technologies overlap in the areas of autonomous vehicles & fleets, construction, fabrication, mining, agriculture and smart cities. Hexagon has 20,000 staff across the globe, nearly a quarter of which focus on R&D.

Hexagon’s software environment is very diverse, consisting of everything from FPGA Firmware in our own hardware devices to Cloud Native SaaS platforms. Some of our software has been in use for 30 years and some is on the very edge of AI/ML and AR/VR research.

Each of our cloud-based products is at different stages between Lift-and-Shift and Cloud Native. Your role as part of the Cloud team in the Innovation Hub would be to help guide our divisional development teams, using best practice, through the various stages of cloud transformation, while optimizing the synergies between their solutions to increasing reuse and improve interoperability across the whole organization. Being cloud-agnostic, we would prefer to focus, where sensible, on Cloud Native tools that operate across vendors, but we are also pragmatists.
