How does our day look?
You will work in a group of experts on a small set of clients with complex platforms where downtime is never an option for them.
All clients have their own support desk and only the more complex issues are logged via our itsm. Every day is different because we manage and control hardware > network > virtualization > operating system > middleware > applications on multiple platforms and mostly on hybrid cloud environments with a focus on Microsoft Azure.
We are constantly busy with projects because our clients are evolving, and therefore we continuously improve our platforms. You are the person that advises the client on improvements, changes, designs and implementations.
We have Extreme Ownership to our clients and their platforms, that does not stop after working hours. Our platforms are under 24x7 monitoring and you are the "Pager Guy/Girl" a couple of times a year for a week. During this week you are available by SMS and phone to fix incidents, of course with the support of the entire team.
Our systems are always up-to-date and together with team RED you apply the latest patches, based on a schedule, outside office hours and automated where possible.
You do this with your Macbook Pro (or Dell) in one of our offices, at the client on location, at home or wherever you are because besides Extreme Ownership you will get a lot of flexibility to schedule your own work.
And next to the above you will be part of passionate organisation where automation is your driver because a passionate engineer automates everything.
What do we offer?

Starting to work at Sentia, you will be assigned a buddy. Your buddy is a colleague who familiarizes you with your team, the systems, culture and way of working. You will also be introduced to the clients.
During the initial period, you will mostly be busy learning how we work. You will need to understand our standard of IaC coding, our deployment mechanisms and our operational processes. You will also work on preparing a number of releases, to learn our way of working, hands-on. Following that, you’ll also get to know all the customer systems, while participating in support and projects. In this way, you learn immediately about the environments used by your customers.
Luckily, we work with a clear process at Sentia and everything is clearly documented. You can also approach your colleagues with any questions you may have.
We are one of the fastest growing IT service providers in North West Europe, with a 100% focus on our Cloud First strategy. With over 600 employees, we are impossible to miss. From our offices in Amsterdam, Nieuwegein, Rotterdam, Copenhagen and Ghent, we work hard on what drives us: state-of-the-art IT infrastructure for our customers.
At Sentia, you get all the space you need to develop your talents. We are convinced that you can only lead the way by continuing to develop yourself. That’s why we do everything we can to constantly innovate with you in both technology and your personal skills. Your colleagues regularly attend events like DevOps days, Microsoft events / trainings and AWS events / trainings and you are always given space to earn the latest certifications in AWS, Azure, Windows, Linux, Ansible, Python, Powershell, Ruby, MongoDB, Oracle, Apache, JBoss and Splunk ... or whatever you need!

We do what we say and say what we do (and don’t do).
We take ownership, always willing to go the extra (s)mile.
We are accountable and document our work (and time).
We strive to exceed expectations (of customers, team members, partners).
We don’t speak negatively about colleagues or customers.
We look at the upside first when change presents itself.
