We are looking for a unique individual to strengthen our team.

As an IT Cloud Technology Lead, you will draw on your technical, communication and organizational skills to help UCB get the most value from their public cloud and container platforms.

You will own all aspects of cloud adoption, helping our stakeholders optimize their business and technical operations.

You will develop deep and lasting relationships with IT colleagues and stakeholders to develop a strong understanding of their requirements and goals. Building on this knowledge, you will make the shared strategic roadmaps concrete to drive partnerships, provide technical guidance and project leadership, and facilitate UCB's digital transformation to maximize their value from cloud platforms.

The role is based in Braine, Belgium.
