We are looking for a Monitoring and Performance Specialist for the Amsterdam based HQ of an international fashion company.

Do you have experience managing and connecting various monitoring tools and can you make sure all critical and non-critical systems, applications and networks are always up and running? Then get in touch with me now!

  • Looking into interfacing with ticketing systems;
  • Automating solutions when requested and possible.

The team plays an active part in analyzing needs and requirements, and translate those into a design for an optimized solution. This requires working with internal tech and non-tech departments, and also with external parties. After the implementation of the monitoring solution the team assists in understanding and analysing the data when possible.

The technical support required for solving issues that result from the monitoring process is provided by the relevant (internal or external) parties, so this is NOT the responsibility for this team.

  • Cisco Meraki;
  • Cisco Cohesity;
  • Dynatrace SAAS;

  • Nexthink;
  • Solarwinds;
  • PRTG;
  • Red-Gate;
  • NetApp, Pure Storage;
  • VMWARE ESX

The Monitoring Specialist we are looking for has vast experience as system specialist and understands the dynamics of a constantly changing IT landscape. You should ideally bring the following:

  • BSc level of working;
  • Experience with the Dynatrace SAAS platform (or similar such as New Relic or App Dynamics);
  • Experience with the Splunk Enterprise platform;
  • Experience with scripting languages, e.g. PowerShell, Shell Scripting, Splunk Query Language;
  • A clear understanding of the monitoring concept and importance;
  • Affinity with monitoring software and how they can work together;
  • A good understanding of network topologies and how these components interact.
