Adopting Cloud technology comes with a new financial model.  Variable spending becomes the standard, while the “spending power” goes from procurement teams to engineers.  One button click can lead to instant costs. It’s a matter of time before a CIO will get confronted with “the invoice from hell”.  Nobody saw it coming.  And worse, nobody knows what triggered it.

At 45 Degrees we help our customers get financial control over their cloud spending. To deliver that service, we need FinOps architects with a cloud technology background and a passion for the financial side of the equation.

Are you up for this challenge?

  • You will work with client’s financial teams and technical teams to gather business requirements, identify capability gaps, craft roadmaps and implement solutions.
  • You will implement frameworks, processes, and solutions to manage and optimize Cloud consumption.
  • You drive optimization through discovery, development, and sharing of cost-saving opportunities e.g., translating financial insights into actionable recommendations.
  • You work with technical teams to design and implement new services in the most cost-efficient way.
  • You produce measurements, reports and recommended improvement plans for financial excellence in the cloud.
  • You participate in a cross department-functional team to promote, develop and establish a cloud operational governance framework
  • You fully understand the customer’s business, keep track of technology and business concerns, and strive to make alignment between both more transparent.

Are you the right fit?

  • You have a deep passion for cloud technology and ability to articulate the cloud value proposition in both technical and financial aspects
  • You have prior experience with Cloud cost management
  • You have excellent communication skills, and enjoy educating/guiding others in both technical and non-technical contexts
  • You are a motivated self-starter who communicates effortlessly with both C-level and IT and can build solid partnerships on all levels and with all stakeholders.
