Firewall and Internet Connectivity Engineer (ENG)

What does this job entail?

Taking care of the firewall and internet connectivity of the entire KBC Group? It’s a challenge you never grow tired of. In our team, you make full use of your technical insight.

Because systems engineering – and IT in general – relies on teamwork, you work closely with colleagues in other functions and from various teams. Once you built up your experience, you’re given the chance to lead innovation projects.

What do we expect from you?

  • In an organisation like the KBC Group there are regular innovations in the architecture, especially in regard to our firewalls and internet connectivity. Together with automation, they’re the primary challenges for our team.
  • Complex problems often cross domain boundaries. This is why you work on troubleshooting, often in collaboration with the different teams that are responsible for our infrastructure.
  • We work agilely and involve you in the design, implementation and more ...
  • You spend a part of your time on daily follow-up tasks.
  • You’re occasionally on standby outside regular work hours

Your key strengths?

  • You have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a STEM related field, and/or you have valuable work experience.
  • You have thorough knowledge of network security on an enterprise level:
    • Firewalls;
    • Enterprise networking;
    • Internet connectivity.
  • You and your colleagues enjoy working with others. Your communication skills help you here; you express your thoughts and ideas clearly in English. You’re preferably able to do this in Dutch too.
  • You enjoy nothing more than analysis and finding efficient solutions.
  • You win bonus points if you have a vendor certificate, from Cisco for example. Experience with automation is appreciated.

What can we offer you?

  • You work in a challenging, high-tech environment. At the same time, you’re part of a large, stable organisation with plenty of growth opportunities. The best of both worlds!
  • You’re assured of an excellent onboarding and a pleasant, collegial work atmosphere.
  • Throughout your entire career at KBC, we encourage you to grow as a person and as a professional. You can follow training courses in which you further sharpen your hard and soft skills.
  • Our offices are easily accessible by public transport. You’re also welcome to partly work from home.
  • Flexible work hours help you to balance your work and your private life.
  • We offer you a permanent contract and a competitive salary, supplemented by extralegal benefits. Sounds familiar? Of course. It’s what you read in every job description. At KBC, we make a difference with our extended flex package. It’s too extensive to go into details here. However, we will happily discuss the various benefits—large and small—at your interview.
