Linux Systems Engineer (CI/CD)

So, we’ve taken a long journey and managed to create a Website and Customer Portal that are pretty cool but it is time to step it up. You are the one that will help us do exactly that. We need an OPS magician who can come and perform his magic on our infrastructure.

You have the opportunity to join our teams (CP and Website) and decide what the next best improvement would be and how you would like to implement it. You will work in collaboration with other teams which have performed some operational magic of their own (trust me, we are good at what we do). This will give you the opportunity to learn a lot but also be part of a community of professionals who are focused on creating awesome, innovative solutions.

Being able to self-organise is really important as you will advise both teams on the best way to improve their deployment strategies, infrastructure and systems. You will also participate in the sprints of both teams. 

If you can think out of the box and help make the Customer Portal and the Website something to be proud of, this position is for you.

  • Ensure the availability of our infrastructure
  • Identify and propose new technologies we can use to improve our services
  • Deployment and maintenance of a Linux based production environment
  • Maintenance / Improvement of deployment pipelines ( CI / CD )
  • Develop and support automated deployments of our infrastructure
  • Ensuring consistency across development and production environments.
  • Support a hosting environment consisting of a LAMP stack and CDN.
  • Assimilate and improve existing Leaseweb practises.
  • Automate deployment pipeline setup and maintenance ( including Chef )
  • Instil OPS perspective and insight in the existing teams
  • Inter-team collaboration to optimise infrastructure / deployment
  • Research / Implement new approaches to deployment
  • Handle day-2-day operational tasks focusing on Website and CP
  • Empower Development team to improve application development environments and processes.


  • Several years of Linux experience.
  • Knowledge of programming languages such as Bash, Python, Ruby, PHP, Javascript
  • Experience in using CI/CD platforms such as Jenkins

  • Working knowledge of CDNs and scaling applications.
  • Good understanding of network operations and troubleshooting.

  • You are able to work as Engineer on Duty 

What we offer

  • Defined contribution pension plan and collective health care plan
  • 25 days of paid time-off
  • Free lunch and free parking
  • VISA sponsorship when you are not living in the Netherlands.
