AWS Cloud Engineer – Mid Level
July 16th, 2019
In this learning path, you’ll improve your skills so that you’re ready to transition into an intermediate AWS cloud engineering role. You’ll start by learning how to migrate existing workloads into the AWS ecosystem, followed by hands-on deep dives into CloudFormation and ECS, two key services that you’ll use often as an engineer. Next, you’ll explore a number of automation strategies using Lambda, and finally, you’ll prepare for a professional level DevOps engineering certification. When you finish, you’ll be well qualified for an intermediate level engineering job working with AWS. As a mid-level AWS cloud engineer, you will be responsible for creating cloud-based solutions within an AWS environment. You’ll develop new workloads, improve existing ones, and optimize applications so that they work efficiently within a complex system. Your job responsibilities may include developing new tools to automate infrastructure, manage configuration and resources as code, and working with other engineering teams to optimize the organization at multiple levels. You may also be heavily involved with deployments and migration efforts. To be successful as an AWS cloud engineer, you should have 1-3 years experience as a junior cloud engineer, devops engineer, or equivalent experience working in a hands-on AWS environment.
