DevOps Engineer / IT support

Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic DevOps Engineer / IT support to join our IT operations team in Groningen (preferred) or Amsterdam (also a possibility). The daily work of our team is to develop, maintain and safeguard the highly available and high performance infrastructure of our ticketing platform. This involves operational work like troubleshooting complex incidents and disruptions but also larger projects that provide infrastructural quality boosts. Our team members are effectively Python programmers, Linux system administrators, MySQL DBAs and SAAS administrators all at the same time, which means there’s always something interesting to sink your teeth into!


Within the IT operations team there’s an “Office IT” team that provides day-to-day internal IT services to non-technical employees including user account management, laptop procurement, office network maintenance, etc. There’s a lot of common ground shared with the bigger IT operations team and this is where we try to foster collaboration.


Part of your responsibility will be to coordinate the work of and provide guidance to the Office IT team including a weekly visit to “the other office” (whether that is Amsterdam or Groningen). You will also provide consultancy about (web) services like G Suite, Office 365, Zendesk and Zoho CRM to colleagues in other departments.


  • Bachelor degree (preferably in Computer Science or a related field).
  • Fluent in Dutch and/or English, good English communication skills are important.
  • Some self-sufficiency will be required to do your job well, but of course the IT operations and Office IT teams will have your back.
  • It helps to be comfortable with Linux command line system administration including a basic  understanding of the management of headless Linux servers through SSH.
  • Experience with Python is a big plus but more important is that you’re interested in programming, preferably with a focus on the automation of Linux system administration and the integration of services through APIs.
  • You get bonus points if you can demonstrate good quality (preferably Python) code that automates system administration tasks, authored by you and released as open source!
  • We use web services such as AWS, Fogbugz, G Suite, Office 365, Zendesk and Zoho CRM so any existing experience you have with these or comparable services speaks to your advantage.
  • We use open source software including Apache, Celery, Docker, Git, GitLab, Jenkins, KVM, Linux, Locust, Mercurial, (Percona) MySQL, Nginx, Python, Redis, SSH, Ubuntu and Zabbix and we’re experts at “taking a look under the hood” when analyzing incidents or developing new automations and integrations - the same will be expected of you.
  • Our team is responsible for an “emergency shift” and in time you may be expected to participate.


What are we looking for

Whether you’re a programmer who’s into system administration or a system administrator who’s into programming, as long as you can demonstrate high quality programming skills and a solid understanding of Linux system administration, we’re looking for someone like you!


What we offer

In this full time position in Groningen (preferred) or Amsterdam (also a possibility) you will be part of a small team of IT operations specialists where you will get the freedom and the flexibility to develop yourself and take the infrastructure of our ticketing platform to the next level. Salary is in line with experience, full time employment of 40 hours per week. We offer a fantastic office environment as expected from a top tech company.
