At TOPdesk, we continue to look for new colleagues. You don’t have to worry about the procedure or the fact that this vacancy cannot be filled. As long as a vacancy is online, we are looking for new TOPdeskers. Curious about how we deal with virtual job interviews? Then read this blog.
**Currently not living in the Netherlands? Or only temporarily? We only process your application if you have a permanent work permit. Why? Because the application process for a permanent work permit goes hand in hand with a lot of uncertainties and bureaucracy.
Do you have an almost insatiable hunger for knowledge and a technical background? And are you looking for a job where you can work in a scrum team full of enthusiastic technicians? In our Operations team we want to take big steps in improving how we offer our software to our customers and the upscaling process. With you in our team, this will become easier and more fun!
The ‘formal description’ is that you’re responsible for a stable infrastructure in which we run our customer environments and that you make it possible for the organization to grow continuously. However, we’re not really formal. So how would we explain what we do? Well, the Operations team works with cutting edge technologies, and that’s pretty cool. We host over 3000 customer environments which are updated twice a week and need 24/7 uptime. That’s why we keep on challenging ourselves to see if we can go faster or make improvements.
Do you have relevant technical experience? Then this list will give you an idea of the tools we work with: Puppet, Terraform, Azure, Influx, Nagios, Elasticsearch, Python and Kubernetes. We use these technologies on Windows and Linux servers, MS SQL databases, firewalls and VPN servers. But, it’s not about what we currently use. It’s about a curious mind and an abstract way of thinking.
With 6 colleagues in total, we’re not a big team. We are supported by 3 SaaS support colleagues. We are social technicians with a big love for what we do. We find it important to be open to each other, which also means that we give feedback. In our team, we can say everything and we always listen to each other.
We work according to the agile principles. You’re probably familiar with them. There’s always something to do when it comes to maintenance, improvements and working smarter. So, we as a team determine what has high priority in our backlog. During our 2-week sprints, we deliver what we’ve committed to. Retrospectives keep us on our toes and show us what improvements can be made.
We expect you, and the team, to be playful with technology. Mind you: playful, but responsible. In the interview, we would like to hear what you’ve figured out and implemented tech-wise in your previous or current job.
Got excited? Then send us your motivation letter and resume via the application form.
Tips for your letter? We think it’s important that you pick up new technologies quickly, that you can withstand change and that you are resistant to stress. We would therefore like to hear, by using an example, what these competencies mean for you. Of course, we are also curious to know why you respond to this position and why you would like to work at TOPdesk.
