Network & Security Engineer - Public Cloud

Cloud Technology, Engineering & Service Desk
Professional, Freelancer

Stijn Bijnens (CEO of Cegeka) already said it a few months ago: "If we can put it in the public cloud, we will". Cegeka is fully committed to the 'public cloud first' strategy. Public Cloud brings scale, a portfolio of PAAS components and far-reaching automation that allows companies to innovate faster. The shared responsibility principle ensures that our clients can concentrate on what really counts: supporting their own business in order to perform better as a company. At Cegeka, as a 'Network & Security Engineer - Public Cloud' you will find yourself in a very exciting world of rapidly evolving technologies, where the cloud will undoubtedly play an unmistakable role. Unburdening customers is also very important. As a Cloud Support Engineer, you will be an enthusiastic, positive professional and ambassador.

  • Are you passionate about the technical aspect? Do you have a love for the cloud and more specifically for Azure and/or AWS? Do you like to contribute to automation? Perfect!
  • You will be part of a network & security team to migrate customers to the public cloud. Once migrated, we ensure that the environment is always ‘tip-top’ in order.  
  • You will actively deal with customer incidents and execute changes.
  • You will manage the customer environment as optimally as possible.
  • Our scope is not limited to virtual machines in the public cloud. PAAS components, container platforms and infrastructure as code are also addressed. So you will be working with colleagues who are working on infrastructure as well as applications on a daily basis. After all, public cloud is shifting the focus more and more to the application side.
  • You will take a structured approach to projects in order to guide the customer through the process optimally and you will do everything in your power to ensure high-quality deliveries.
  • In this role you will receive the necessary support and training to grow into a fully fledged 'Cloud Support Engineer'. Do not underestimate how much you can learn from experienced colleagues.
  • Besides the cloud native network and security elements, you will also integrate and manage specific next-gen security products in the public cloud. Think about firewalls like Fortinet, Palo Alto and Checkpoint. Security is a very dynamic and challenging world in which we at Cegeka are always up to speed with the latest trends.

What you need to succeed:

  • You are fascinated by the world of the public cloud and you enjoy keeping your professional knowledge and technical skills up-to-date. You want to develop as much as possible as an expert that other colleagues look up to. You motivate and inspire others to follow your example and thus keep the momentum going!
  • You have a strong interest in automation, scripting and DevOps.
  • You have a Bachelor or Master degree in an IT related field.
  • You are analytical, communicative and know how to approach customers in a friendly/respectful way.
  • You are eager to learn, driven and enthusiastic with a passion for IT.
  • You can work independently, but also like to work in a team.
  • Furthermore, you are not afraid to take ownership and you want to shape your own career

What are we offering:

  • Teamwork in an open and dynamic atmosphere with room for new, fresh ideas and initiatives.
  • Tailor-made guidance! You indicate where your interests lie. We offer various career paths, and together we look at how we can help you develop further. Learning and sharing knowledge are central.
  • In addition to a competitive gross salary, an (electric) company car or mobility budget, meal vouchers, eco vouchers, group and hospitalization insurance, cell phone subscription, fixed expense allowance and powerful laptop, we offer you flexible working hours and a good work/life balance.
  • Thanks to our Flex Reward Plan, we can offer you a tailor-made salary.
