    About Oworx Public Cloud

    SCC recognise that many organisations across multiple sectors need the power of Public Cloud to realise their full potential. Many businesses either lack the capacity or capability to successfully architect, deploy, and manage cloud infrastructure, or would prefer to focus on their core business rather than invest in training and maintaining the internal talent required to benefit from automation and cloud tooling. To tackle these challenges SCC launched its “born in the cloud” brand Oworx. Technology changes are hard to predict even when certain evolutions look certain. What’s more predictable is our team, a group of passionate individuals who are adaptable to change, with an innate love for the leading edge. The quality that will always prevail is our people.

    At Oworx, every day is a fresh challenge. We live and breathe cloud technology, nurturing the industry’s leading talent so we can offer the highest level of specialist expertise. Our culture is what binds us; everyone can contribute; everyone’s voice matters. At Oworx, enjoying what we do is a serious business.

    The Role

    SCC has just launched a new “born in the cloud” brand called Oworx, our initial focus on Migrations and IaaS across Azure, AWS and GCP platforms. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the core Product technical design team who are architecting, deploying and maintaining all of our customer facing tooling, as well as identifying and implementing automation for our support and deployment functions. You will work in a small progressive “startup” team, challenging yourself and your colleagues technically to drive the success of our Oworx Products.
