Vacature omschrijving

Job Description

We need a tech-savvy trouble-shooter to join our diverse global team. If you enjoy solving-problems and working with customers, you’ll find plenty of scope at Shell to stretch your skills.

What’s the role?

We call this a Systems Engineer role internally but, in practice it will be more of a DevOps role – an ideal next step for someone highly technically savvy who enjoys thinking beyond the obvious, to troubleshoot day-to-day problems. As an Application Engineer, you’re end-to-end responsible for the operations of the landscapes and the delivery of the day-to-day application services according to the agreed Service Levels and/or Operate Level Agreements. You’ll find it’s a refreshingly international role. Part of a supportive six-strong team within a wider department, you’ll be working (virtually) with colleagues in Houston, Bangalore and Rijswijk and interfacing with project teams and developer teams around the world. 

We invest heavily in technology at Shell – it fuels our progress – so you can look forward to stretching your skills on major projects (with increasing work in the cloud) across a diverse landscape, including Windows, Linux, Oracle and SQL. Life moves fast at Shell but provided you can juggle projects, adhere to service level agreements and keep internal customers happy, you’ll find huge scope to develop here and room to progress your career in any number of directions.

Personally, you’ll need to enjoy the customer-facing side of the job. Your colleagues would recognise you as someone who’s proactive and takes pride in seeing a job through.
