We create market leaders by integrating the key competencies for digital transformation – big data, cloud computing and information security, into one service offering. Basefarm was founded in 2000 and has grown steadily since then, today our team of 550+ top engineers and advisors are servicing global clients from our European offices and data centers in Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany and Austria.

About the role

As a Senor Systems Consultant in our Service Delivery department you will work with improvements and maintenance of your client’s technical platforms and systems and act as advisor for the customer for changes and technical improvements. You will also be responsible for ensuring correct monitoring, maintenance, optimization and troubleshooting of applications and OS. For this position, most of the technical environments you will be handling are based on RedHat Enterprise Linux OS, with a wide array of different applications on top, such as Apache, Tomcat, Resin, Varnish, OpenShift etc.

In close collaboration with the customer, backed by your highly competent team of colleagues, you will identify possibilities and technical opportunities to help the customer get the most out of the technologies and services we can offer! Together we create a customer experience beyond expectations!

Who we are looking for:

We believe that you are a committed and independent person with a passion for IT. Additionally, you have a high sense of quality and are driven and motivated by responsibility. Since we work in close collaboration with our clients, it is important that you are service minded and able to build good relationships with clients and colleagues.

This also means that excellent communication skills in Norwegian and English, spoken and written, is an absolute requirement for the role.

In addition, you should have:

  • 3-5 years of experience in a similar role, preferably from hosting large/complex systems
  • Very good knowledge in Linux/Unix operating systems, preferably Redhat
  • A good general understanding and knowledge in different technologies used for building mission critical solutions, such as networking and loadbalancing, storage, virtualization, databases, public cloud services etc
  • Experience from scripting (bash, perl, python etc) in a maintenance and operations setting.

It is an advantage - but no requirement -  if you have:

  • Experience from working in PCI-DSS environments
  • Experience with Puppet, Ansible and TICK-stack
  • Experience with OpenShift or similar.
  • Experience with Windows Server
  • Experience from working in public- and hybrid cloud environments.

Basefarm is born and raised in the Nordics and IT is in our DNA. The foundation of the company is very much the same since the beginning; a customer centric, transparent, honest company with a flat organization.

We focus on training and continual learning, whilst giving you opportunity to progress when you are ready. We offer you the platform to advance your career and the opportunity to work in a positive and stimulating environment where passion is rewarded, and your own initiative and enthusiasm is what shapes your workday.
