Role and responsibilities

You will be part of the Front Office team which acts as the “doorbell” for the SICS Platform where you will join the support team to help people by answering questions, defining solution proposals to help other teams solve issues.

The Front Office team is responsible for:

  • an embedded part (close to the hardware, (RT)OS, networking, storage, etc.)
  • a facilitating layer abstracting the hardware (system start, system configuration, communication layer, etc.)

For a lot of issues it is not directly clear what might be the root cause which could also be outside the group. Therefore we expect that ownership is taken and interaction with stakeholders and people outside the group is started. This can take place under time pressure so you should be able to cope with that. In terms of soft skills, a big challenge will be to find the right people to help you and to be able to make them willing to help you.

The following activities are part of the job:

  • Provide the required support to stakeholders and clients.
  • Report daily on your progress in stand up meetings.
  • Propose improvements were possible

  • Machine performance diagnostics: atop, TPTviewer, T-iPPs, tcpdump (snoop)
  • Configuration management / disk SMART / RAID / File systems
  • Knowledge of debugging and able to add non-intrusive diagnostics
  • Knowledge of C / Python / C++ / Shell scripting (ksh, bash)
  • Knowledge of scripting / tooling.
  • Experience with Linux (occasionally Solaris) / VxWorks / CentOS
  • SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) way of working


Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
To thrive in this job, you’ll need the following skills:

  • Enthusiastic, flexible and assertive
  • Multi-tasking/dynamic
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Able to influence without power
  • Proactive attitude
  • Searching own challenges
  • Organize work effectively and logical
  • Able to prioritize
  • High degree of autonomy
