Our team is part of the Platform Staff Functions unit at Delivery Hero, and bridges the world of finance and tech. We provide data, insights, guidance and tools at the global group level to help tech teams around the world continuously drive down their cloud costs. Seeing our massive company growth, we are working on automating our processes, and we are building a platform to import cost and usage data from all external cloud vendors.

  • Reporting and visualization: build reports and dashboards on cloud costs and utilization in various BI and reporting tools. Work with our internal customers to ensure we build what they need.
  • Support senior management with ad-hoc financial analysis and other critical topics, with a focus on cloud cost per order and observability cost.
  • Create transparency and visibility for global tech KPIs and cloud cost, and help devise and implement strategies to better manage costs, e.g. through creating standards for cloud resource tagging.
  • Help manage our global cloud capacity commitments (e.g. through AWS Savings Plans) to optimize our group-wide cloud cost structure.
  • Help build and maintain automated cost splits and monthly accruals, so that cloud costs can be re-invoiced in the group monthly.
  • Create documentation and educate teams to help them understand cloud tools pricing and cost structure, and ways to optimize this cost.
