Our team is seeking a colleague who likes to work at middleware level. Do you share our passion for databases and applications in (private) cloud environments? At the same time, you don’t shy away from on-prem environments? In short, would you like to work with different environments within middleware and associated infrastructure? If so, come and talk to ‘Team Yellow’ at Sentia.
At Sentia we set up and maintain cloud environments, while striving for zero down time. We do this by taking ownership and automating and virtualizing as much as possible. Each of our engineers is an all-rounder with their own specialism in the (private) cloud field. As an all-round engineer with a primary focus on Linux, you will migrate, maintain and deploy solutions in a (private) cloud environment.
As with the rest of the team, you will ensure that management is proactive, and that customers' technical requests are handled optimally. Of course, you will make smart use of automation wherever possible. Analyzing complex incidents/problems falls under your remit, but that’s something you like sinking your teeth into. You do this by yourself or together with colleagues. At the same time, you do everything in your power to prevent incidents by identifying potential problems and monitoring all environments.
What do we offer?
It’s important to us that you can develop yourself to the fullest at Sentia and we will do everything we can to provide that opportunity. You will find yourself working in a pleasant environment, alongside driven colleagues. In addition, you can expect the following:
When are you fir for the job?
- For techies at both MBO4 and HBO (Vocational or Bachelor) levels, we’ve got the right challenge
- You will have, on average, around 3 years of professional work experience
- While you are Pro Linux, you won’t turn your nose up at Windows servers
- You’re lazy in the right way - automation is the solution!
- It goes without saying that it’s part of your mindset to be available 24x7 bi-monthly for our mission critical applications.
- You have knowledge and experience of tools such as Ansible, Git and applications like Apache/Nginx and HAproxy
- You have an affinity with databases such as Oracle. MySQL is an advantage.

What can you expect after pushing the apply button? We follow some steps. They can differ from time to time due covid or other circumstances. But in general you can follow this guideline to become a true Sentian as soon as possible. We're looking forward to it!
As soon as you begin working 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. Having become familiar with your customers’ environments, it’s time to go beyond supporting customers with fixes and troubleshooting. You can get started on developing and optimizing their environments. Your individual development is of central importance to us, and we consider it imperative that this opportunity is put to use within Sentia.
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!
