Cloud Spend Analyst

This is a new role at CTS – recognising the importance and complexity of billing,

FinOps and the opportunity it presents to CTS, Google and our customers. We are

already good at this – you’ll help us be great.

The Cloud Spend Analyst will take responsibility for the performance of our GCP

billing business. You will be our primary GCP billing expert, and will utilise your

skills in manipulating and visualising data to enable our customers to make

decisions which will maximise the return on their investment in GCP.

Our FinOps feature backlog will feature heavily within the role and when not

dealing with contracts and customer conversations, you will provide thought

leadership to improve our billing services for customers.

A few activities you’d perform as a Cloud Spend Analyst include:

  • Engaging with stakeholders within our customer organisations and Google, to provide guidance and insight into cloud billing best practices.
  • Building internal processes and tooling to improve sales cycle efficiency for all GCP consumption deals
  • Improving the customer experience by developing and continually improving a suite of real time billing reports and dashboards using Looker and SQL

About Us

Here at CTS, we help our customers do great things with Google Cloud – and we’d love for you to be a part of our journey. As the largest dedicated Google Cloud practice in Europe, we offer a complete Google Cloud solution for businesses. Whether our customers want to identify leaks faster, track the origin of products in their supply chain, save patients from trying to read doctors’ handwriting or simply collaborate better, we’re here to help.

We’re proud to work with businesses who want to differentiate themselves through adopting Google Cloud technologies and creating a culture of innovation and sustainability. Our hard work has been recognised by Google, as a top tier partner we’ve won awards for both Workspace and GCP success. We have a brilliant remote-first team of 300 people across our global workforce, with offices in Manchester, Edinburgh, London and Utrecht.

Driving progress and sustainability is at the heart of what we do, as demonstrated by our B Corp certification. CTS has met diligent social-corporate and environmental standards to achieve this status, which highlights our commitment to employee benefits and company culture, as well as our dedication to continuous improvement. You can even find us in the Flexa Careers list as one of the most flexible companies in the world, and Newsweek’s list of most loved workplaces.

If you’re passionate, curious, and ready to get stuck in and help us do great things using Google Cloud technology, read on to find out more.


What you’d bring

  • Strong experience of at least one major cloud vendor’s billing practices (AWS/Azure/GCP)
  • Able to be hands on in calculating and understanding complex cloud billing, commitments and optimisations of GCP spend.
  • Ability to utilise data visualisation/BI toolsets and SQL to generate reports which enable data-led decisions.
  • Experience in a consulting environment

If you currently perform some kind of similar role to a Cloud Spend Analyst, e.g. a Cloud FinOps Specialist, or a Cost Optimisation Analyst, and would like to understand more about the responsibilities you’d have at CTS, then we can explore this on an initial call.

Location and flexibility

As part of our DNA, we offer a flexible working environment, so we encourage you to apply and ask if this is something you require.

When it comes to your working location, we’d leave it to you to decide what works best. You can live anywhere in the UK or the Netherlands and work completely remotely if you would prefer.

If you live near any of our offices in Utrecht, Manchester, Edinburgh or London, you can of course also choose to work from the office as often as you want. We may ask you to travel occasionally to one of our offices (or a customer site) for specific meetings or team building/social events.

Fair Pay. Done Right.

Our “Fair Pay. Done Right.” commitment: We don’t advertise salary brackets because we don’t have salary brackets. We encourage conversation about your (and our) salary expectations from the off and throughout your time with us, but we don’t want to discourage anyone from applying because they are on significantly more or less than a “bracket”.

What You’ll Get

In addition to a competitive salary (see our “Fair Pay. Done Right” commitment), the CTS benefits package is outlined below:

  • Company contributed pension scheme, private health insurance and Death in Service Scheme.
  • Unlimited paid holiday days. It is not all about working!
  • Flexible work culture. We trust you to manage your time and workload responsibly.
  • Take up to 10 paid ‘Learning Days’ (in addition to your annual leave) to spend on professional development.
  • Work From Anywhere’ policy. Work abroad up to 90 days a year.
  • A minimum of two whole-company social events each year. This might perhaps be one of the nicest benefits, as we typically have one ‘Kick-Off’ every year in a sunny location in Europe.
  • The ability to complete Professional Google Certifications and other industry-recognized training and certifications (paid for by the company).
  • Industry-leading parental leave policies, health and wellness initiatives, and access to a discount and rewards program (including discounted gym memberships).

Whats next

Our Talent Specialists will contact you a.s.a.p. after your application. If we agree that there is a match, then you’ll progress through to a 1st stage interview.

If all interviews go well, we will then make you a nice offer and, if you accept it, we will talk about the onboarding process.

Diversity And Inclusion Statement

At CTS, we look after each other and support everyone on our team. We’re proud of our people-centered culture; our diversity brings us innovation and our commitment to inclusion drives us forward. If you share these values and would be interested in joining one of our teams, get in touch today!
