FULL-TIME · ENSCHEDE · 40 HOURS PER WEEK

Your experience and enthusiasm will help us improve and increase the scalability of our systems, while (as a true subject-matter expert) you stay abreast of new technologies and evaluate their value for Takeaway.com, setting up and assessing proof of concepts and managing the integration. You proactively identify bottlenecks in the current system before they can cause a negative impact.

Your systems expertise means that you take on a mentor role for other (more junior) system administrators, helping them tackle issues they cannot solve on their own and proactively sharing your knowledge within the team. A fan of automation, you continuously review processes accordingly to spot additional ones that can be automated. Finally, you are willing to make yourself available approximately once a week to cover a standby shift in case of any calamities within our live environment.
