Innovator Cloud DevOps Specialist | The Hague

Want to make your mark on our time? Become an Innovator Cloud DevOps at TNO Networks in The Hague!

About this position

Are you ready to take your DevOps skills to the next level in a dynamic and innovative environment? Welcome to the Networks team at TNO, where we're not just offering another DevOps role. We're at the forefront of cloud technology, focusing on Telco cloud realization and critical infrastructure research, including applications in telecommunications and defense. If you're passionate about networking, cloud federation, mobile core technologies like 5G and even 6G, and enjoy building and deploying cutting-edge solutions, then this role is tailor-made for you.

What will be your role?

In this role, you'll be at the heart of the action, responsible for deploying new technologies and even developing your own solutions. We don't just work with existing tools; we create them. You'll have the opportunity to contribute to research papers, bringing your academic background into play. But that's just the start. You'll have the freedom to propose your own ideas and, if you excel, take the lead on projects. Think of it as your own sandbox for technological innovation.

A Glimpse into Your Work:
At TNO, we take things out of the computer and into the real world. Expect to work on exciting projects like extracting data from sensors of self-driving cars, greenhouses, or even drone technologies. You'll be part of international consortia, collaborating not only within TNO but also with external companies and partners.

Collaboration and Freedom:
What sets us apart is our collaborative spirit. You won't just be working within the walls of TNO; you'll be collaborating with external partners to ensure successful implementations. You'll have the autonomy to manage your own time and work on multiple projects simultaneously. It's not your typical 9-to-5 job, but the variety and freedom are what make it truly exciting.

Career Path:
This role opens doors to diverse career paths. You can focus on academia, transition into consulting for businesses, or take on a project leadership role. Becoming a subject matter expert is also on the table. With our international team of 70 colleagues from all over the world, you'll have opportunities to grow and explore.

What we expect from you

  • Educational Background: We prefer candidates with an academic master's degree, but if you have a bachelor's degree in computer science, informatics, or technical informatics, and a few years of experience, we're open to that too.
  • Cloud Skills: You should be well-versed in DevOps and cloud technologies, with experience in Kubernetes, OpenStack, and Linux. These are essential skills for this role.
  • Development Enthusiast: Don't shy away from development tasks. We're not just operational; we're creating the software that powers Kubernetes and OpenStack.
  • Languages: You'll be coding in Python, C, and Go, depending on the task at hand. Choose the language that suits the job best.

If you're ready to be a part of a team that's shaping the future of cloud technology and networking, apply now and let your skills shine at TNO Networks.

We offer a gross monthly salary (based on your knowledge and experience), 8% holiday pay, a 13th month bonus of 8.33% and a flex budget (5.58% + € 180).
