Functional Analyst/Scrum Master - Flanders Digital

Software & Analysis
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?
