As a fast-growing company, we want to build diverse teams who are dedicated to our vision: a world of fossil-free transport, which will go on to combat climate change.

While our head office is in the Netherlands, our focus is distinctly pan-European, and our team is growing throughout the continent.

The Department

The IT Team is responsible for the end-to-end support and development of all digital products and services needed to achieve our mission and support our clients and colleagues in the best way possible.

We’re developing and setting up a scalable, secure and resilient set of services, serving either internal or external clients. Next to that, the team works on setting up the data infrastructure and data pipelines for seamless exchange of data among the business systems, working with fantastic datasets to facilitate and monitor charging sessions, network location planning, route optimization and smart charging. Our teams work and collaborate closely and use common state-of-the-art DevSecOps best practices and processes.

The Job

As a Senior Cloud Engineer, you will design, deploy, and manage our cloud infrastructure. You will work closely with engineering teams to understand the products and services they’re building. You will advise and support the engineers by setting up and managing the development, acceptance, and production environments. You will propose and implement measures to ensure the high availability of the systems created and operated by the department.

You will help to troubleshoot and resolve issues in our environment infrastructure. You will automate processes for increased efficiency and reliability. You will promote the implementation of DevOps best practices for performance and security. We will be working in multidisciplinary teams.

Since we are an exciting new start-up, not all responsibilities have been defined yet, meaning you have the opportunity to help us shape your position and engineering processes further. You can make visible contributions to our digital landscape.

The job will be based in our Amsterdam and/or Arnhem office.
