Awesome Cloud Architect

Tryg is moving to the Cloud - Will you join us?


We are defining the next generation Cloud Strategy and Cloud Architecture to set the direction for Cloud usage in Tryg and define the future Cloud platform. To succeed we need an awesome Cloud Architect to participate in the strategic work and set the technical direction for the future Cloud.


It’s a huge task… and you will like it, if you enjoy having a big impact in an organization that spans the Nordic countries and India and if you are not afraid of navigating stakeholders in a large company together with awesome colleagues.


It is an exciting moment to be working with Cloud in Tryg as there is an eagerness to use Cloud technology in the IT Development organization and an appetite for realizing the benefits of using Cloud in the Business.

The Cloud is important to Tryg as it supports multiple themes in the company strategy focused around time to market, team autonomy, employee satisfaction and stability in operations.


About the role | Your impact as a Cloud Architect

The role is part of the newly established Cloud Centre for Enablement. We are a small dedicated team that will drive Cloud strategy, Cloud Architecture and the adoption of Cloud technologies in Tryg across the entire organization (Norway, Sweden, Denmark and India).


You will be the lead architect on the Cloud target architecture and it will be your main task to drive the next generation Cloud Target architecture for Tryg in collaboration with other stakeholders from Enterprise Architecture, IT Operations and the Developments teams.


The Cloud transformation is just beginning in Tryg, so in many aspects you will be able to set your fingerprint on the Cloud strategy and architecture for the entire company from the beginning.


While there is some Cloud adoption in Tryg, it is our role in the Cloud Centre for Enablement to set the direction for Cloud architecture and help Development teams using the Cloud and Cloud Native architecture in a structured way that follow our strategy. Being the competency centre for Cloud knowledge have a big awareness task in communicating cloud concepts and benefits in different forums throughout the organization.


About you | Awesome Subject Matter Expert

We expect that you have in-depth knowledge of and a solid experience with Cloud platforms (Azure, Google Cloud or AWS), Cloud Native architecture and Cloud/Container Orchestration, and in collaboration with the Head of Cloud C4E you know your turf when it comes to making a strategic plan for cloud transformation in Tryg. You have several years’ experience working as a (lead) Cloud engineer or as a Cloud architect. You master the role, know the nuances, and can independently assess when to coach, when to be an expert, when to facilitate and when to move on.


In this role you need to be a strong communicator across all levels in the organization. You are able to build strong relations with the business and communicate cloud concepts and business benefits of cloud and cloud native architecture in a clear and understandable way to less tech savvy colleagues.


Tryg has teams in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and India, so a natural curiosity and understanding for cultural differences are expected to succeed in the role and we expect that you communicate clearly in both Scandinavian and English. It is also important that you are used to working with remote teams and set direction and create collaboration through digital channels.


In short you need to be THE subject matter expert related to technical architecture aspects of cloud infrastructure and orchestration services – and in return we can promise you exciting challenges, awesome colleagues and a chance to make an impact with the largest non-life insurance companies of the Nordic region and together with our 7.000 colleagues create security and value for more than 4 million customers – help us create Tryghed across the Nordic countries.


We are looking forward to getting in touch

If you can recognize yourself in the description above, please send your application as soon as possible, as we will be conducting interviews continuously.
