Technical Consultant

Full-Time | Zwijnaarde, BE | Systems Management

What the job is about

As a Technical Consultant (Application Engineer), you are a part of the Miles Technical Team. This is a smaller team, with just 8 members, but it has a crucial and significant role within the company.

The role of a Technical Consultant is truly diverse, you don't know in the morning what you'll have done when you get home. But these are a few of the main responsibilities :

The first one is being the flying MTT member, one person on duty every week, who solves unforeseen problems, both towards customers as internal colleagues. By assigning one specific person, the team is more responsive and agile in dealing with these events.

Besides that, the team also offers technical consultancy to customers, giving advice on architectural matters, hosting and application needs, etc.

For some clients, the team is also responsible for the full application management, this means maintenance, installations, monitoring, performance investigations, etc.

Of course, the biggest aspect of your job is to manage the build, release management, and deployment of the application. Automation is a key aspect in the release process, for monitoring, testing, server setup, and middleware configuration.

These are the technologies you will be working with:

  • Oracle, MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL,

  • IBM WebSphere, Red Hat JBoss, Wildfly

  • Ant scripting, Ansible, Bamboo

  • Unix/Linux/Windows

Your Interest and Skills

Preferably you are in possession of a bachelor’s or master’s degree in IT.

Because automation is an important aspect, knowledge of at least one scripting language is necessary.

You want to be in a customer-facing role and have the communication skills to do so.

You will be part of an international organization with international colleagues and customers, so it is essential you communicate well in English. But your colleagues are all Belgian, so a basic level of Dutch is necessary to communicate with them.

The architecture is currently undergoing a change towards microservices and besides the DevOps team, MTT also plays a role in this. This role will grow and change in the following years, so an interest in k8s, Artifactory, and cloud technologies is a big plus.

What we offer

We would like to welcome you to an international and multicultural company that has been operating for over 30 years and is doubling in size every 5 years. Growth is our middle name, while we strongly adhere to our horizontal and open company culture.  

You're in the drivers' seat of your own career, that's our motto. Your personal development is therefore paramount. During an extensive onboarding program of six months, we make you, with the support of your job coach, familiar with our product and the organization. Even after this period, you will continue to get opportunities to learn and develop yourself further. You’re never alone.  

At Sofico you will also work in a modern state-of-the-art office that is easily accessible. We have plenty of safe charging points for your electric car or bike, and free shared bicycles available to pick up your lunch.  

In return for your efforts, we offer an extensive salary package, including a company car with a fuel card, a bonus system, meal vouchers, and group and hospital insurance. Are you a sporty type? Bike lease is also one of the possibilities! The flexible office hours and opportunities to work from home provide the necessary flexibility within the company.  

At Sofico we are strong believers in the power of a good cup of coffee. Water or soft drinks are of course also on the menu. We love our team events. Think after-work drinks, a BBQ, a family day, a company weekend, or a walking dinner with the whole company.
