You change everything!

We are currently working on a transformation which will implement a "Digital First" approach in all areas within the B&S Group. This approach ensures that all business processes will be optimally automated and as efficient as possible. And this is why we are looking for new colleagues! Colleagues who are passionate about new technologies and enjoy varied and diverse work. Not only in terms of the actual work activities, applications and technology, but also considering the range of business activities. In addition, the organization is growing fast and faced with several challenges. Also with the "Digital First" approach, IT is now a prominent topic on the agenda within our organization!

The diversity and complexity of the IT infrastructure make it a challenging environment to work in. You will be tasked with over 2,000 users, interesting security topics and a large-scale, internationally-standardized corporate network. These challenges demand smart solutions!

We tackle these challenges as a team and that is precisely what we are good at.
