Your Tasks

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.

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.

Our Sentian Values



We regularly leave our comfort zone.

We challenge ourselves more than Sentia challenges us.

We have realistic views of our skills and always look for ways to improve.

We accept mistakes, but we strive for zero repeats.

Always transparent


We communicate clearly, concisely and often.

We share our thoughts and concerns immediately with honesty.

We don’t make assumptions, we rather ask that extra question.

We don’t rely on emails alone for perfect communication

Listen first

Listen first

We focus on listening rather than responding.

We take the approach that everything is a hypothesis and we could be wrong.

Internally we also listen. If you have an idea or a problem; we are here for you.

We understand first before we try to be understood

Extreme Ownership

Extreme Ownership

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.

We don’t complain, but there’s always room to share our concerns.

We never miss an opportunity to give positive feedback.
