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 not an option.

All clients have their own support desk and only the more complex issues are logged via our ticketing system. Every day is different because you manage and control hardware > network > virtualization > operating system > middleware > application.

We are constantly busy with projects because clients always are changing, and we continuously improve platforms. You are the person that advises the client on improvements and changes, designs and implementations.

We have Extreme Ownership to our clients and platforms, that does not stop after work hours. Our platforms are under 24x7x365 monitoring and you are the "Pager Guy/Girl" a couple times a year for a week. During this week you are available by SMS and phone to fix incidents, off course with the support of team RED.

Our systems are always up-to-date and together with team RED you apply the latest patches, bases on a schedule, outside office hours.

You do this with your Macbook Pro in our Nieuwegein or Amsterdam office, 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.

You will do all of this in a team of passionate Sentians where automation is your driver because a passionate engineer automates everything.

  • At least 3 years (senior 5 years) relevant work experience;
  • A high technical level of knowledge;
