DevOps Cloud Engineer

Colleague Mark would like to tell you more about the position. 'As a Cloud DevOps Engineer I ensure continuous improvement of our Cloud Platform via Infrastructure as Code and everything that comes with it. I continuously try to keep up with the latest trends in cloud, security and container technologies. Of course I don't do this alone, but work closely with my colleagues. Not only direct colleagues from the team, but also, for example, colleagues from the security, support, development and managed services departments.

My goal? To ensure maximum stability of our customer environments. In my belief, you are successful if you can find the right balance between pragmatism and quality. I am constantly analyzing problems related to customer environments or our cloud platform. I am free to explore new ways to make backups, logging, disaster recovery or deployment of global Planon environments more efficient.


What makes it fun for me is the mix between new developments and ensuring the stability of our customer environments. This makes my job varied; one moment of the day I'm busy researching new or better ways to run/manage our platform, the other moment I'm fixated on a customer problem. In doing so, I am always looking for the balance between quickly and adequately solving the problem and structurally preventing this problem from happening again.


The team is also part of my job satisfaction. We have a relatively young team with a good mix of experience and the internal atmosphere is casual. You have to be able to take a joke and be willing to celebrate successes with us!'
