As well as the Belgian domestic market, Cegeka also has branches in the Netherlands, Poland and Romania, where we have subsidiary companies for remote management and software development.

Job mission:

We are looking for an Exchange Support Engineer to join our Exchange Competence Team in within Cegeka Romania, team which handles medium-complex Exchange / Office 365 infrastructures, mainly enterprise environments. The Competence Team  currently has 3 members in Romania and collaborates with collagues from Romania, the Netherlands and Belgium to ensure that the quality of the services provided is at the highest level. 

As a member of this team, you will be involved in managing the infrastructures of our customers and troubleshooting technical problems. You will make sure that the services are up and running and that the incidents assigned to your group are acknowledged and resolved in the agreed time frame. In addition to that, your activity will include performing maintenances in the customers’ infrastructure.

In terms of managed environments, at engineering teams’ level, we are talking about Wintel environments – around 5000-6000 servers for over 100 customers, located abroad. We use 2 ticketing tools - CA Unicenter Service Desk (CA USD) and LANDesk and an Unified Dashboard, which integrates multiple monitoring tools (SCOM, Nimsoft, Zenoss), that helps us monitor the environments of our customers.

Currently, the team operates on 2 shifts: 07:00 AM - 15:30 and 11:30 AM - 20:00. In addition to those shifts that require your presence in the office, the Engineers also perform stand-by shifts, which are performed remote and are designed to cover the work load during weekends and nights (for critical issues).

We are ITIL certified, which means that we respect specific standards for the procedures and operational flow we have in place, which are implemented division-level. In addition to that, in order to increase efficiency and transparency in terms of team interaction and communication, we use periodically 121 and team meetings, which help us deliver our services continually while not overburdening the team members.
