Devops Engineer - Flanders Digital

DevOps
Professional, Freelancer

Cegeka continues to grow! Within our Applications software department, we have set up a new division for an exciting long-term project with the Flemish Government. Cegeka's Flanders Digital wants to ensure, in partnership with the Flemish Government, that Flanders grows into the European top 5 most digitised regions. Cegeka is the Flemish Government's strategic IT partner in this matter.  In this way, we are putting our shoulders to the further digitalisation of Flanders in terms of digital workplaces and building applications that have an impact on 6.6 million Flemish people, like you and me. Think, for example, of  ‘het Groeipakket’, through which 960,000 Flemish families automatically receive the correct allowances and benefits. Or ‘het Vlaams Handhavingsplatform’ for the ‘Agentschap Justitie en Handhaving’, centralising all information on administrative enforcement from the various inspection services in Flanders. With Persona, ‘Agentschap voor Onderwijs’ is taking a new application into use to manage personnel data.  In addition, we have numerous other projects. For these projects, we are always looking for people with, to put it in Flemish, ‘goesting’!  Do you want to help build a digital Flanders? Then you might be our new DevOps Engineer. Here is what the job contains:

  • The orientation of this role is on CI/CD pipeline, toolkit and Git. You will build, tune and secure infrastructure and development workflows.
  • Manage/administer servers (Linux and/or Windows), manage VMs in private and public clouds.
  • Manage network systems and host security activities.
  • Configuration management, provisioning and orchestration.
  • Use tools to diagnose and monitor web and application performance.

What you need to succeed:

  • You have a passion for managing, monitoring and optimizing infrastructure and security of production applications and processes.
  • Configure and deploy highly available and secure infrastructure with tools such as e.g. Ansible and Terraform.
  • Experience with cloud infrastructure (e.g. AWS, Azure), and container services (e.g. Docker and Kubernetes).
  • Management and implementation of solutions are necessary to meet security audits and compliance measures.
  • Use of tools/services (e.g. CircleCI, Travis, Jenkins) to increase agility of application integration.
  • As soon as you need to do something more than one time, you will figure out a way to automate it with your preferred programming language or another that may fit for the project.
  • You enjoy learning and strive to continually improve yourself and your team.

What are we offering:

  • You will join a Top Employer! 
  • A competitive salary completed with fringe benefits. An (electrical) company car with fuel card/charging card or mobility budget, luncheon vouchers, eco vouchers, interesting group and hospitalisation insurance, a mobile phone subscription,  flat-rate expense allowances, a powerful laptop and the opportunity to give your salary package a personal touch thanks to our Flex Reward Plan. 
  • Flexible working hours and a nice work/life balance. 
  • A top team: in which new fresh ideas and initiatives are always welcome! Team events, monthly happy hours and an always legendary company party are also part of this. 
  • Tailormade guidance: throughout your career, you will be guided by our people managers. So you have a point of contact, a personal coach and a sparring partner. 
  • Continuous learning: through innovation centres, reading groups, knowledge sharing meetings, hackathons, participation in conferences and external training courses, we focus on knowledge sharing and learning. 
  • Opportunity to grow: depending on your own interests and initiatives, Cegeka offers various horizontal and vertical career paths. 
  • Hybrid working: you work from a Cegeka office in your area (Hasselt, Leuven, Antwerp, Ghent), but also from the agencies of the Flemish Government (Ghent or Brussels within walking distance of the station), combined with working from home. 
  • Want to get in as a freelancer? No problem! Then we offer you a competitive daily rate and numerous benefits.
