Company: OVHcloud

Corporate strategy analyst H/F


OVHcloud is the European alternative in the cloud with a global footprint. Founded in 1999, the global cloud provider operates 400,000 servers, manages and maintains 30 data centres across 12 sites in 4 continents, deploys its own fiber-optic global network and controls the entire hosting chain. This means that our customers benefit from an industry leading price performance ratio underpinned by continuous technical and industrial innovation whilst maintaining the highest security standards.


Last October, OVHcloud has been very pleased to announce the success of its initial public offering (“IPO”) on the regulated market of Euronext Paris. The IPO aims to accelerate OVHcloud’s growth trajectory and consolidate its leadership position in Europe while continuing to expand in North America and Asia.


OVHcloud is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to inclusion and diversity.


The Role


The OVHcloud Corporate Strategy team is looking for an experienced, self-starting and detail-oriented analyst to join its growing Paris-based team. The team works closely with the CEO Michel Paulin to implement the strategic plan and underlying initiatives, hand-in-hand with OVHcloud corporate and operations teams. The team is looking for a new member with strong appetite to support our industrial and operations strategy.

The team also leads the Analyst Relation program to develop the ongoing relationships with industry analysts from top-tier firms (e.g. Gartner, IDC, Forrester, 451 Research) to independent analysts, and defend OVHcloud positioning in global and local market studies (e.g. OVHcloud recognized as leader for Hosted Private Cloud in Europe in the Forrester Wave, June 2020).


We believe this is a rare opportunity to join a leading and global European-based cloud actor in a high paced market, working on growth strategy and scaling of a European technology company with strong exposure to top management, a lot to learn on cloud infrastructure technologies while having an excellent work-life balance compared to consulting.
