iO Associates is currently hiring 3 Cloud Engineers for a 12+ month contract on a remote basis.

The project will be centered around rebuilding and modernizing a legacy system that currently uses various account statues and details to handle decisioning logic for an awards eligibility program for customers. The desired end result will be an updated microservice architecture that supports Lambdas and will integrate with other internal systems to provide a scalable solution.


  • System Modernization: support the transformation of a legacy system into a modern microservice architecture. Develop and deploy cloud-native applications using AWS services, particularly focusing on AWS Lambda for serverless computing.
  • Microservices Development: Design, develop, and implement microservices to replace legacy monolithic components. Ensure these microservices are scalable, reliable, and secure.
  • Integration: Integrate the new system with various internal systems, ensuring smooth data flow and interoperability. Collaborate with internal teams to define and implement integration strategies.
  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC): Utilize Infrastructure as Code tools (e.g., Terraform, AWS CloudFormation) to automate the deployment and management of cloud resources.
  • Documentation: Create and maintain detailed documentation of the system architecture, microservices, and integration points. Ensure all documentation is up-to-date and accessible to relevant stakeholders.


  • 5+ years of experience as a Cloud Engineer, preferably with a focus on AWS.
  • Experience in modernizing legacy systems and developing microservices architectures.
  • Hands-on experience with AWS services, including Lambda, SQS, Fargate and DynamoDB
  • Proficiency in Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools such as Terraform or AWS CloudFormation.
  • Proficiency in programming languages such as Python, Go, or Java.
  • Familiarity with GraphQL
  • Knowledge of CI/CD pipelines and tools like Jenkins, GitLab CI, or AWS CodePipeline.
