Job opening for a Data Engineer

Do your fingers itch when you see a server have an incident every Monday at 08:00, when a manager needs to download data into excel to review the operational status, when an account manager is blindsided by a client on the quality of work? Are you the one that creates the needed scripts and API calls to gather the data into a data lake; and builds report or dashboards to help out your colleagues? Then you might be the data engineer that our Control Center is looking for! Our Control Center focuses on quality, of us and our customers, based on data. For this we are creating standards, procedures and tooling to gather the data. Based on this data we create insights in the form of reports, dashboards or API connections to other tooling. We help our colleagues with automation and root cause analysis where possible to prevent incidents from happening (again). You will become part of a new team consisting of other experienced engineers and experts in service management. We are building everything from the ground up and you will need to take on projects from the start: define, design, build, test and deliver these while working with all the stakeholders in company. You will build linux or windows systems including all network and security related tasks; install and configure needed applications; create scripts to collect the data; build and maintain big data tools; create reports and dashboards. If there is an incident, our Control Center can be asked to help out and you will investigate using the data we have. You will have all kinds of tooling like Zabbix, Dynatrace, Nexthink and off course our own APM monitoring tools at your disposal to do in dept analysis.

You will work from the Netherlands in our Control Center team which is a part of the Operations team. Your direct report is the team manager and you will work with more than 300 colleagues in the Netherlands and more than 600 in NL, BE, DK and BG.
