About your future job
Your work as a Senior Network Security Engineer is quite varied. Every day starts with a team standup to discuss ongoing tasks and how to align these. Both within the department and the team you schedule your tasks according to Agile/Scrum working methods. This means that, throughout the week, you usually focus on the sprint work together with your coworkers. This includes securing, maintaining and further developing our IT Infrastructure. You're also responsible for the design, implementation and support of Identity & Access Management (IAM) concepts. (Such as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), identity provider services (IdP), Single Sign On (SSO), Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) and Radius-technology.)
You ensure that required network security principles are implemented in business managed environments. You also contribute to and ensure that the vision and strategy for the products within your domain are aligned with the IS/IT department strategy. Translating business demands to tailored IS/IT solutions according to the expectations of the stakeholders is second nature to you, and you enjoy collaborating with other squads and departments to optimise results.
Why you'd be a good match
We are looking for a colleague who preferably has a (technical) bachelor or master degree, and at least 5 years relevant working experience. You feel strongly about securing IT infrastructures. Mastering new domains and techniques is something you enjoy, and you're already familiar with (or are willing to learn) setting up security/group policies, automation of recurring tasks, packaging, trouble-shooting, rolling out applications and other workspace management activities.
You're also familiar with Unix-based technologies (server and client) like RHEL, CentOS and Ubuntu and have experience within a complex enterprise IT environment. People often praise you for your communication skills (including in English) and open-minded way of adopting new styles of working. One of your goals is to continue to develop yourself, both on a personal and technical level. Plus, you have:
What's in it for you
We actively support a working pattern that suits your lifestyle and helps you reach your ambitions. That means that equal opportunities, inclusion and an informal culture are integral to our success. It also means that your well-being and happiness matter to us! That’s why we offer you the flexibility to do what’s important to you; whether that’s part time hours, job sharing, remote working, or the ability to flex your start and finish times.
