And therefore we are looking for IT Engineers telling us what we should do better and how to be able to (keep) offering the best services to both our business and private customers.

You recognize problems and work to solve them structurally. You have a 24x7 mindset, and are willing to participate in a standby shift, knowing that ING operates a 24x7 business for its customers.

IT and automation is your hobby but you can switch easily in mindset to an enterprise environment where uptime and security is key to serve our consumers in an optimal way. You like to script and program for fun but apply these skills to your job as well.

You are an energetic DevOps Engineer who is creative and has a can-do mindset. You are a team player, collaboration and sharing knowledge is natural behaviour.

For you it is a sport to automate common tasks to save time and get to the more challenging jobs. If this fits you, we are looking for you!

The Hadoop platform and the components in its ecosystem are within ING essential for storing and analyzing data as well as applying predictive models and deep learning. Hadoop is also complementary towards existing more traditional business applications where it needs to integrate with products like SAS Viya and IBM InfoSphere Information Server. The Hadoop offering is provided on the ING Private Cloud Infrastructure and automating functions and providing scale out options is key objective. Good understanding of building Enterprise ready solutions are one of the main requirements. Uptime is everything, but great performance and predictable throughput are equally important. You prepare the Linux OS, the Hortonworks Hadoop and the middleware subsystems with its dependencies. You solve vulnerabilities and automate system management wherever possible. You make sure everything we do is repeatable by making reliable scripts for all changes on the system. You are also responsible for securing the system to the latest standards, able to tune the system to the required specifications and you are a great trouble shooter. You test all changes thoroughly and you are responsible for the automation of these tests in line with our adopted CD/CI/CT methodology. You are responsible to implement necessary changes on all DTAP systems as non-disruptive as possible. Minimizing downtime is in your blood.
