Data Application Engineer

Do you have experience with managing an application, from the infrastructure side up to the functional application side? And would that application possibly be a big data application? Do you know what a deployment pipeline is? Are you a skilled communicator with team lead ambitions? Than this job is just what you are looking for!

The environment you will work on

For one of our Enterprise customers we manage their Splunk data platform from OS layer (Linux) up to the application layer, including data connectors and dashboards. The environment is set up HA and DR, in a clustered set-up consisting of 135 servers, 1,5 TB data per day, 200+ data connectors, 3000+ dashboards, 500+ users. We use Puppet for managing the environment, as well as smart monitoring, and a deployment pipeline with BitBucket.


  • On a day to day basis you monitor the monitoring, ensuring that the environment is up and running and performing well. You do this with the support team that you manage, consisting of 2-4 technical engineers.
  • If incidents occur, you take the lead in getting to the root cause as soon as possible in order to solve the incident with as little impact on the end users as possible.
  • You and the team are responsible for building, deploying, maintaining and optimizing the infrastructure and application layer plus the data connectors, including life cycle management in release weekends, regular updates and upgrades during the week, or project based enhancements.
