Cloud Solutions Consultant

Who we are

Regroove Solutions Inc (Regroove) is a cloud first technology consulting company with a strong focus on helping teams harness technology to run more effective businesses. We have an infectious love for all things technology-related, and work with progressive organizations and their leaders who embrace transformative decision-making. We select our projects with care, ensuring our clients share our values, and have any number of internal projects that stretch our creativity and skill ongoing. The Regroove team shares a laid back humour; employees build friendships here, and we enjoy lots of team socializing activities.

Who you are

We are in search of a Cloud Solutions Consultant to join our growing team. This individual will work with clients to understand their existing business processes and provide guidance on how to improve them with technology tools. Ideally, you are a professional who enjoys engaging in a variety of end-to-end projects, predominately using Microsoft tools, but can also work with Amazon and Google products. You thrive on creating custom solutions based on business and technical requirements. You have a solid working
knowledge of the configuration, management, and use of Microsoft 365 collaboration tools, including OneDrive, SharePoint, and Microsoft Teams, and the rich tooling that surrounds them including Flow, Power Apps and Power BI. You also appreciate web app development and deployment. You like working with clients to help them drive engagement with these tools and appreciate the positive impact that modern technology can have on their daily work.

You are the type of person who constantly stays up to date on disruptive, breakthrough technology, and changing industry processes. You don’t mind “wearing multiple hats” and enjoy variety in your projects and responsibilities. You think critically about problems, always questioning how something can be done better with the goal of working smarter, not harder.

Motivated by meaningful work, you are looking for more than just a job; you want to work for a dynamic company that is passionate about empowering people and businesses through technology. You want to do the right thing, and to do the thing right; at the same time, you aren’t afraid to ask questions about what you don’t know and admit when you might be wrong.

If this opportunity sounds like a position you would be excited about, but you don’t meet our requirements for experience and education, we would still like to meet you. We recognize the value of emotional intelligence and aptitude and are willing to invest in developing the skills of people who possess those qualities.

Our must haves

  • Currently reside on Vancouver Island, preferably in the Capital Regional District – while we are

  • A sense of humour. We love to laugh at ourselves and find fun in life and the work we do.
  • An outgoing nature. There are introverts on our team, and lots of independent work here, but we need candidates who enjoy working with people, as collaboration is a keystone of what we do.
  • Respect for people; a commitment to inclusiveness in all interactions. Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, and ableist views are not entertained here. You are not a fit if you harbour these views.
  • You don’t have a problem admitting when you’re wrong. “Do the right thing, do the thing right” is a motto we live by and what we mean by that is that we try our best to do the right thing and do things right. Being “right” is not important here; doing what is best for the team or the client is valued above being correct.
  • A caring heart. We want someone who would stop to pick up a stray puppy if they saw them in the street. In a world that can be hard, we cherish softness.
