The Cloud Computer Engineer is responsible for the company's data storage and management, on servers located outside the company.


The Cloud Computer Engineer gathers data about different companies offering data storage services, and selects the most attractive offer. His missions are:

- To secure sensitive dematerialized data
- To optimize the energy consumption of data centers
- To administrate and maintain the virtualized system

- To manage Big data as a data scientist  

As a project manager, the Cloud Engineer must also deal with the client/supplier relationship. Three models of services are available: SaaS (software as a service), Paas (platform as a service) and IaaS (infrastructure as a service). 

Working conditions

Setting up the storage solution is technical mission, but the CCE must also teach the employees how to use these new technologies. Therefore, communication is important. 

Required qualities

In addition to a solid background in IT, managerial skills are required to ensure a good communication of the new services.
