Linux Engineer

Alkmaar, Noord-Holland, NetherlandsCloud Solutions

Job description

What are you going to do?

As a Linux Engineer, you are an important part of our operations. You are a real engineer and that is why you want to know how systems work and how you use these systems. You are responsible for the server environments of both large and small Triple customers. You will of course, set up new customer environments and improve these customer environments. In addition, you will write scripts to automate server functionalities.

Together with 25 colleagues, you work in the Technology Operations department. You participate in the day-to-day business. Concretely, your support tickets will be processed and malfunctions will be resolved. We are all well aware that the platforms we build can also go down. Here we aim to set up the environments as “resilient” as possible. To help our customers properly, we know how our platforms work. in the end, that is what we at Triple stand for: blowing our customers away with great service. The team runs storage services and you can also become part of this. Fortunately, all colleagues here do me and so you have a storage shift every six weeks.

Within Triple, we use a varied stack in the field of Linux Engineering:

  • RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu
  • Apache, Nginx, Caddy, Varnish
  • MySQL/MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Galera/Percona
  • Redis, HA proxy, memory cache
  • Salt/Ansible/Puppet, Docker

Who are we looking for?

As a person, you bring a broad knowledge of Linux Engineering with you. We do not expect you to know everything, which is ultimately impossible. In addition to knowledge and affinity in the field of Linux, we think it is important that you have an affinity with cloud platforms such as Azure, Google Cloud or AWS. Your colleagues and customers expect you to have a vision and opinion about where the technology is going. You are, therefore, open to discussion and changes when new ideas are supported, but there is plenty of room to come up with ideas yourself.

The team works well together; Fun is important, so many colleagues go to the cinema together, have lunch in the city, or go out together. In addition to all social events, personal development is important to us. Not only by taking courses but also by visiting previous trade fairs and attending technical events in your field of interest. This allows you to continue to challenge yourself and gives you the space to grow further.

Job requirements

  • HBO working and thinking level;
  • You have a passion for Linux Engineering;
  • Experience with configuration and automation;
  • Experience with security, cluster environments and containers;
  • Affinity with cloud platforms;
  • Of course you speak and write English effortlessly (Dutch is a plus);
  • You live in The Netherlands.
