Ironstone - Azure Technical Lead
Azure Office 365 Cloud Infrastructure Team


Position: Azure Technical Lead

Location: Oslo

About the company
Ironstone currently consists of ~30 employees in Norway and Sweden. We have had a double digit revenue growth since our inception in 2016, and we aim to continue and increase our growth trajectory in the years to come.

Ironstone is an ambitious and innovative cloud company that helps businesses get the best out of cloud technology. We are on a quest to challenge the established, disrupt the IT-market with high-
tech cloud solutions and have loads of fun while doping it. We build our own solutions on top of Microsoft products, and, judging by what our customers say, we are pretty good at it.

We have a strong owner supporting our growth strategy, a clear long term plan, dedicated employees, and perhaps one of the most exciting places for people with a passion for cloud technology. We can offer a place of work where no two days are the same, and where new possibilities appear around each corner.

We have offices in central Oslo and Stockholm – but we are completely open to hybrid solutions and facilitate for home office and remote locations as well.

For us, culture is our number one priority. The right people create the right culture, and with that our services and customer deliveries become state of the art. So, no matter what, your personal qualifications will be the primary factor we consider. Do you have the right attitude with drive and passion towards your profession? Are you solution oriented and a dedicated team-player with respect for those around you? Let’s talk!

Great if you tick a few of the competency-boxes as well, but if you’re the right person, we’d rather shape the role to you than to place you in a box that is already defined.
