Senior Linux Ops Engineer (Oracle/Tomcat)Amsterdam
In your role as Ops Engineer you do whatever is necessary to ensure that your production applications are available to our customers (both internal and external). This means that you join the conversation already during development as a SME on security, performance and monitoring. You make a difference using incident resolution because of your technical knowhow, also because you keep improving your monitoring and alerting as if it were your second nature. Within your squad you make sure that your security mindset is shared among the Customer Journey Exports and Dev Engineers with whom you work very closely. Together with your Chapter colleagues you are always busy with working smarter and automating more.
Your work environment:
We work according to the ‘Spotify agile’ model: you will be working in a squad with business and IT together, serving both the Dutch and Belgium markets. Our application landscape is enormous which forces you to take the complete end-to-end chain into account. Our customers are always our main focus. Together with your chapter you build on the best Ops Community in the Netherlands. We do this by challenging each other, going to trainings and visiting and/or speaking on leading conferences.
We expect you have a solid technical background that enables you to think along during the complete software development lifecycle. You are reliable and you always take one hundred percent responsibility for the work that you do. You are precise and set high standards for yourself and your coworkers. Your analytical skills ensure that you solve problems quickly. You are a communicator that is seen as a go-to person for both business and IT.
