Are you the Network Specialist we are looking for? Do you see complex networks as a nice challenge, do you like to be involved in multidisciplinary large projects and do you get excited about working on sustainable projects? Then we are looking for you!


What will you do?

Our team deals (within the R&D department) with software and networks for TheBattery, our innovative and large-scale "Battery Energy Storage System". As a Network Engineer you will help design and lay out industrial networks. You will help build and implement the designed network. This includes creating IP plans where redundancy plays a big role. A single point of failure may not cause a large site to go down. The networks are often built from multiple vlan's and the switches and routers are often redundant. So knowledge and affinity with switching, routing, vlans, VRRP, firewalls and VPN connections is very important. In your role as Network Engineer you are involved from sales up to - and including - the final delivery of a project. A nice challenge is that our systems have to be integrated into the customer's network, so you have to deal with different requirements and guidelines every time.

In addition to this network knowledge, you will need to build extensive knowledge of Alfen's TheBattery systems themselves. After these systems are deployed, they often need to be managed remotely. For this, experience with SNMP and Network Management Systems such as Zabbix or Nagios is a big plus. If problems occur you will of course be busy troubleshooting these problems. And finally, you ensure that the environment is always improved and you will be busy integrating the latest techniques.

What do we offer you?
We offer you a great role in an appealing and challenging environment. Depending on your education and experience, we offer you a suitable salary. Furthermore, we find it important that you develop yourself as a professional. We expect you to take initiatives and, in consultation with your manager, make choices that support your career with us.

What do we ask of you?

Your pragmatic attitude and independent and eager to learn attitude, ensure that you can get started quickly. You are creative and focused on the customer. In order to ensure a good match, your CV will  show that you:

  • have completed a relevant technical HBO education;
  • have experience in a similar role;
  • have knowledge of IP-Protocol, DNS, DHCP and VLAN; have a thorough knowledge of switches, firewalls and routers and have knowledge of Linux systems and protocols;
  • can express yourself excellently orally and in writing, so you can work out and present your plans well;
  • have a good command of the Dutch and English language, both orally and in writing.
