De functie

In your role as Senior Cloud Platform Engineer, you give strong direction to the technical architecture of our cloud hosting platforms. The position is found within the Hosting & Operations team, which is responsible for the design, implementation and operation of our multiple SaaS based products. The team wants to show the world, just what (cloud-) innovation is. Would you like to join them?

As a senior engineer, your mindset should be to have everything we manage automated either by using IaaS, by utilizing available PaaS services and by making optimal use of Auto Scaling on our used services.

You will also be working closely with our development teams to support them in making the best decisions and you will be reporting to the Manager Hosting & Operations.

According to Shamin Hameed, principal within the team, your role is crucial.  "People make all the difference, you are the difference between having a vision and realizing that vision”. So, are you full of fierce ambition and would you like to take this chance of transforming applications to cloud-native? Then you are a perfect match for our team of engineers. We are convinced that only as a team you can rise to great heights.
