Cloud Architect

Cloud Architect

Do you dream of designing tomorrow's IoT systems and work with the newest cloud technologies from Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Amazon?

  • Do you know how to mix business and technology and inspire clients?
  • Do you want to design and implement micro-services and serverless architectures?
  • Do you thrive with agile projects and want to dig deeper into the IoT-space?


Then you might want to consider the role as Cloud Architect:

We are looking for a Cloud Architect that has been (or wants to be) all over the technology spectra and knows that the important information is in what is not told rather than the obvious things documented. Today’s systems are built on-top of big technology stacks and the real challenges are often not in the single system but in how systems interact:

We expect you to have experience in building whole or big parts of systems that interact - or that you have superior results from your education and/or own projects. You have either lead or been part of system architecture designs multiple times and worked with product owners obtaining requirements for the system. Much of your experience comes from day to day work with technology and getting your hands dirty with test and proof of concepts.

Security, performance, stability and cost are key points in the systems you design. You rather integrate a well-functioning sub-system than building one more proprietary part and open source is where you start your search for a sub-system.

The perfect candidate has experience with different IoT cloud platforms, where Microsoft Azure is our no. 1 priority, while also having a deep interest in connected devices and how they connect and interact with the cloud.

About us
You will be part of a consultancy that has a truly unique profile. Your colleagues are part of the top tier in the business and you should expect to be challenged. However, we take pride in working together as a team, to utilize each other’s strengths and to provide support when using our weaker sides. For us it is important to be at the forefront of the technology and be able to advise our clients about how relevant technology can be leveraged in their business.

We have a name for our culture – we call it Glaze United. It summarizes that we utilize the unified knowledge available and we leverage our deliveries by thinking and acting as one team.

You will be compensated according to your qualifications and for the right person a partner role is within reach.

Please send your CV and application to jobs@glaze.dk. You are welcome to call Jakob Appel, Managing Partner, for more information on +45 26 17 18 58.

Positioning technologies currently applied across industries:

Global Navigational Satellite System: Outdoor positioning requires line-of-sight to satellites, e.g. GPS: the tracking device calculates its position from 4 satellites’ timing signals then transmits to receiving network
–    via local data network, e.g. wifi, proprietary Wide Area Network
–    via public/global data network, e.g. 3G/4G

Active RFID: A local wireless positioning infrastructure built on premises indoor or outdoor calculates the position based on Time of Flight from emitted signal & ID from the tracking device to at least 3 receivers or when passing through a portal. The network is operating in frequency areas such as 2.4 GHz WiFi, 868 MHz, 3.7 GHz (UWB – Ultra Wide Band), the former integrating with existing data network, the latter promising an impressive 0.3 m accuracy. Tracking devices are battery powered.

Passive RFID: Proximity tracking devices are passive tags detected and identified by a reader within close range. Example: Price tags with built-in RFID will set off an alarm if leaving the store. Numerous proprietary systems are on the market. NFC (Near Field Communications) signifies a system where the reader performs the identification by almost touching the tag.

Beacons: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals sent from a fixed position to a mobile device, which then roughly calculates its proximity based on the fading of the signal strength. For robotic vacuum cleaners an infrared light beacon can be used to guide the vehicle towards the charging station.

Dead Reckoning: Measure via incremental counting of driving wheels’ rotation and steering wheel’s angle. Small variations in sizes of wheel or slip of the surface may introduce an accumulated error, hence this method is often combined with other systems for obtaining an exact re-positioning reset.

Scan and draw map: Laser beam reflections are measured and used for calculating the perimeter of a room and objects. Used for instance when positioning fork-lifts in storage facilities.

Visual recognition: The most advanced degree of vision is required in fully autonomous vehicles using Laser/Radar (Lidar) for recognition of all kinds of object and obstructions. A much simpler method can be used for calculating a position indoor tracking printed 2D barcodes placed at regular intervals in a matrix across the ceiling. An upwards facing camera identifies each pattern and the skewed projection of the viewed angle.

Inertia: A relative movement detection likewise classical gyroscopes in aircrafts now miniaturised to be contained on a chip. From a known starting position and velocity this method measures acceleration as well as rotation in all 3 dimensions which describes any change in movement.

Magnetic field: a digital compass (on chip) can identify the orientation provided no other magnetic signals are causing distortion.

Mix and Improve: Multiple of the listed technologies supplement each other, well-proven or novel, each contributing to precision and robustness of the system. Set a fixpoint via portals or a visual reference to reset dead reckoning & relative movement; supplement satellite signal with known fixpoint: “real time kinematics” refines GPS accuracy to mere centimetres; combine Dead Reckoning and visual recognition of 2D barcodes in the ceiling.

LoRaWAN: A low power wide area network with wide reach. An open standard that runs at unlicensed frequencies, where you establish a network with gateways.

Sigfox: A low power wide area network reminiscent of LoRa. Offered in Denmark by IoT Danmark, which operates the nationwide network that integrates seamlessly to other national Sigfox networks in the world.

NFC: Used especially for wireless cash payments.

Zigbee: Used especially for home automation in smart homes, for example. lighting control.

NB-IoT: Telecommunications companies’ IoT standard. A low-frequency version of the LTE network.

2-3-4G Network: Millions of devices are connected to a small SIM card, which runs primarily over 2G, but also 3G and 4G.

Wifi: The most established standard, especially used for short-range networks, for example. in production facilities.

CATM1: A low power wide area network, especially used in the United States.
