About Nordcloud Academy


The problem is obvious and it's been here for some time now; there are not enough skilled people in the cloud arena. To face the challenge we decided to roll up our sleeves, grow the next cloud generation ourselves, and so Nordcloud Academy was born.

Nordcloud Academy trains IT experts in modern cloud architecture over a six month period and offers in-depth cloud education for both junior and senior IT specialists. The program consists of classroom training, self-learning, and most importantly learning by working on projects with our Senior Cloud Architects. After the intensive Academy we will have 10 skilled AWS Certified Cloud Engineers ready to continue their journey with us.

We are super excited to offer cloudy career paths to both those who have recently graduated and those who are looking for a change in their careers and want to work in the cloud. Stay tuned to see when the next programme starts, and in the meanwhile please meet our Nordcloud Academy team.

Meet The Members of Nordcloud Academy

Jani Luostarinen

I joined the Nordcloud Academy as an ambitious rookie in IT. I worked in the logistics field for the past nine years while studying at the same time at Haaga-Helia applied sciences from where I just graduated. Now I'm extremely thrilled to be a part of the Nordcloud Academy and I look forward the challenges that await ahead. What I like most in IT is that you can never be “done” as a professional. You need to constantly educate yourself in order to keep up with the new trends and tools.

My spark for cloud technologies was ignited at a Microsoft Azure webinar where they introduced their service and told about cloud computing. I was very fascinated about the subject and decided to write my Bachelor’s thesis concerning cloud computing. I still have the spark and now also a chance to learn more about cloud services and actually get to work with them at Nordcloud.

Markku Ontronen

Nordcloud Academy members were warmly welcomed to the team. It is kind of refreshing to be a part of a smaller, more transparent organization, just like in the beginning of my career. I am also really excited about the cloud. It offers the chance to cost effectively try out new things quickly and then scale easily as required. To Nordcloud I am bringing my gathered experience, ability to look at the bigger picture as well as paying attention to the details.



Pasi Purhonen

I have been dreaming of finding a good IT job. Nordcloud seems to fit perfectly for me because here I can develop my own skills and the company is growing really fast. I have really positive feelings about Nordcloud after two weeks here. People are really friendly here. Because of that it is nice to come every morning at the workplace. IT fascinates me because this business is developing all the time. We face new challenges every day so I also have to develop my own skills all the time. Cloud is still relatively new thing for me but I find it really interesting and want to learn more about it.

Jarmo Herrala

Working in IT is something that you are never ready with. I am still new with the Cloud technologies so there are lots of things to learn before calling myself a guru. My dream is to work as a Cloud Architect with multinational customer interface in the environment which is never ready and changing all the time. I am very excited and motivated to work with the very experienced and highly talented colleagues. I can already feel the Nordcloud spirit and being part of it!
