Cloud Automation Engineer

Saying that IT is important to Vopak would be an understatement. Automation already plays an essential part in all our processes, but with the transition to the Cloud and the rise of the Internet-of-Things it’s an interesting time for you to come on board at Vopak! 

The Vopak Global IT organization delivers IT services for Vopak business units worldwide and the Dutch headquarters. Vopak Global IT consists of four departments: Network Services, Operational Services, Agile Services and Digital Innovation. All these departments drive the innovation and digitization of Vopak and the maintenance of the current IT landscape. This position is within the Operational Services department with the Infrastructure Services team.

Do you have experience and a strong motivation to take on the following challenges?

  • Do you have the eagerness and agility to quickly adapt and learn new technologies and systems?

  • Do you have a continuous drive to improve the current set-up and have an appetite for discovering and implementing new infrastructure services which enable the digitization of Vopak?

  • Become the supercharger of global services and work together with your team to move to the next level of automation?

  • Would you like to ensure all deployments are engineered in an automated, repeatable manner so that other departments like Edge or Data Analytics can request services using standard building blocks?
