Linux Systems Engineer (Nederlands sprekend)

Hej Linux systeem engineer, klaar om dé specialist voor onze klanten te worden?

Een error in het systeem van onze klanten, betekent gelukkig geen error in jouw hoofd. Want complexe vraagstukken schrikken je niet af. Sterker nog, je gaat meteen in de startblokken staan als je zulke opdrachten krijgt. Complexe problemen los je in no time op en dankzij jou kunnen changes correct en tijdig uitgevoerd worden. Waarom we dit met een gerust hart aan jou toevertrouwen? Omdat jij hét nerdy talent bent dat het systeem niet alleen begrijpt, maar ook doorgrondt. We kunnen je met recht een specialist noemen en dat is maar goed ook, want jouw specialisme heb je nodig bij het:

  • ontwerpen, implementeren,testen en beheren van systemen
  • oplossen van complexe vraagstukken op het gebied van systemen en applicaties.
  • continu verbeteren van onze dienstverlening voor onze klanten.
  • schrijven van documentatie.
  • oppakken van een coördinerende rol in projecten als dit nodig is.


Basefarm: jouw nieuwe werkgever?
Basefarm is een toonaangevend Europese Managed Service Provider voor bedrijfskritische IT. Wij bieden cloudinfrastructuur en -diensten en beheren applicaties voor onze klanten. Big data, cloudcomputing en gegevensbeveiliging: dát is onze specialisatie. Klinkt goed hè? Maar wat Basefarm nou écht leuk maakt, dat zijn onze mensen. Zowel in Nederland als daarbuiten. Want Basefarm is begonnen in Scandinavië en telt nu meer dan 500 van de beste Europese ingenieurs en adviseurs in Noorwegen, Zweden, Nederland, Duitsland en Oostenrijk. Het team in Nederland bestaat uit 33 Basefarmers. Allemaal een beetje nerdy en allemaal mensen die ervan houden om na te denken over techniek en innovatie. En niet geheel onbelangrijk: mensen die dit kunnen doorvertalen naar praktische oplossingen voor de klant. Want die klant, dáár doen we het uiteindelijk voor.

Binnen Basefarm werk je in een team met 4 engineers (Microsoft en Linux). Nog eens 3 servicemanagers en 2 projectmanagers maken het team compleet. Daarnaast werk je natuurlijk ook afdeling overstijgend samen met andere teams. Wat jouw nieuwe team uniek maakt? De onderlinge betrokkenheid en drive om altijd te verbeteren. 

Jouw talenten
Jij bent onze geek en go-to-guy (or girl) voor alles. Een rol die je goed past als je weer eens duikt in de complexe vragen van onze klanten of het verbeteren van onze dienstverlening. Maar waar je ook induikt, je komt altijd weer bovendrijven. Mét de beste oplossingen voor onze klanten natuurlijk. En hoewel we een goede work-life-balance erg belangrijk vinden, loopt dit op 1 vlak toch wel door elkaar: je gekte voor IT. Want die laat je natuurlijk niet thuis of op het werk liggen. Jij bént IT. Daarnaast heb je:

  • minimaal hbo-werk- en -denkniveau.
  • in ieder geval 5 jaar relevante werkervaring: die specialist ben je niet voor niets.
  • kennis van en ervaring met hosting,- en cloudsystemen zoals bijvoorbeeld Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Puppet, Apache, Nginx, MySQL, Tomcat, Continuous Integration/Deployment tools (e.g. Jenkins), Docker en ELK stack
  • geen moeite met het schrijven en spreken van Nederlands en Engels.

 

Jouw groei = onze groei
We geloven dat onze mensen het verschil maken. Hoewel we momenteel een klein Nederlands bedrijf zijn, hebben we grote ambities. En die ambities kunnen we alleen waarmaken met de beste mensen. De állerbeste mensen. Je hoeft dan ook niet bang te zijn dat jouw ontwikkeling stil blijft staan bij Basefarm. Want met een goed inwerktraject in Noorwegen, training on the job, dagelijks nerdy talent om je heen en volop opleidingsmogelijkheden (bijvoorbeed RHCE), kan je niet anders dan groeien. Létterlijk groeien gaat bij ons trouwens wat lastiger, want met ons vaste wielren- en hardloopteam ontkom je bijna niet aan een beetje sportiviteit na werktijd. 

En dat is nog niet alles. Want naast persoonlijke en professionele ontwikkeling, bieden we je voor de vacature van Linux systeem engineer ook:

  • Want plezier in ons werk vinden wij het allerbelangrijkst. We zijn dan ook trots dat wij in 2018 verkozen zijn tot Great Place to Work.
  • een salaris passend bij jouw kennis en ervaring flexibele werktijden en in overleg de mogelijkheid om thuis te werken.
  • een aantrekkelijke pensioenregeling waar wij twee derde van betalen.
  • 25 vakantiedagen (2 extra dagen bij niet ziek)
  • een reiskostenvergoeding.
  • Standby vergoeding voor support buiten kantooruren (roulerend)
  • de mogelijkheid om technische events bij te wonen, zoals opensource-events, etc.
  • een goede work-life-balance.
  • opleidingsbudget

Kom igjen
Oftewel, kom op! Laat van je horen, want samen gaan we ervoor en kunnen we écht successen boeken. Wil jij onderdeel zijn van de ambities van Basefarm en jouw eigen potentieel ontdekken? Solliciteer dan snel via het sollicitatieformulier hieronder. En wie weet poets je je racefiets alvast op voor de Styrkeproven in Noorwegen, waar veel collega’s aan meedoen. En voordat we je op het laatste moment nog afschrikken: aanmoedigen mag natuurlijk ook.

Als onderdeel van de sollicitatieprocedure vragen wij, in het kader van ons integriteitsbeleid, een ‘Verklaring Omtrent het Gedrag’ (VOG). Het ontvangen van een VOG wordt opgenomen als ontbindende factor in de arbeidsovereenkomst. Als je geen VOG kunt aanleveren, kunnen we je helaas niet aannemen. De kosten van de VOG worden uiteraard door ons vergoed. 

Acquisitie naar aanleiding van deze vacature wordt niet op prijs gesteld.
