Senior Network Engineer

RemoteAmsterdam (en/of Bunnik), Noord-Holland, NetherlandsDatacenter Service Team

Job description

Who is DMP?

DMP is the best-known data management specialist in the Netherlands, and DMP is on the rise worldwide as well. With over 90 specialists, divided over offices in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, and South Africa, we serve more than 350 customers worldwide, with our reliable and cost-effective data management solutions.

In 2020, DMP has been acquired by Broad Horizon group, provider of IT, data, and cloud solutions. With this acquisition, DMP (internationally) is growing even faster. Want to grow with us?

Who you are

As a Senior Network Engineer, you will be the main contact for Network related questions within the Datacenter Team and DMP as a whole. You have a passion for networking and enjoy sharing your knowledge and experience. You use this knowledge and experience to implement and work out new designs, carry out complex changes and solve difficult problems.

Together with your colleagues from the Datacenter team, you will work on building and managing the customized environments which vary greatly due to the variety of customers, technologies and manufacturers. You will support your colleagues with incidents and changes, and work together to create designs and implement projects.

What your day looks like

The morning starts with a short meeting with your colleagues of the Datacenter team, after the meeting everyone starts working on their own projects. You will be working on furthering the development of our automation stack. We strive for as much automation as possible to make the work easier and more clear, we use Ansible for this.

After a delicious lunch you will work on setting up a new Vxlan Compeling with one of our customers using our Hybrid Cloud stack. You will be responsible for designing, implementing and managing the networks. You will provide the customer from A to Z and work together towards the best possible result.

After the meeting you take a break to get some coffee and take a walk. As soon as you feel refreshed you start preparing the rollout of a new data center location. Together with your colleagues you ensure that this new location is 'up and running' as quickly and good as possible so that it can be taken into use. At the end of the day you work on some administration and reflect on another successful day.

"If I had to describe my role in one word it would be challenging, but in a good way. In networking there is a saying if you don't touch something it doesn't break but with a fast paced growing environment you have to touch things. You get a lot of trust and responsibilities and there is no problem if you ever need help with anything from your colleagues. You get challenged but you feel a freedom to fail, which takes the pressure off and makes the work even more enjoyable." - Rasmus Hansen, Network Engineer
