Functie omschrijving

As a DevOps Engineer, you will work in multidisciplinary Agile teams. These teams develop and test the infrastructure platform for the combat management systems, the radar systems and the optical sensor systems. The development teams are responsible for the entire development chain – requirements analysis, development, integration, testing, validation and demonstrating the current status of the product.

As a DevOps Engineer, your work will be diverse and flexibility is expected. Working via scrum methodology, the work will vary depending on the project and sprint you are working; this may mean that one week the job requires Python programming and the next network engineering skills. Furthermore, Thales highly values the application of modern technologies and methodologies. The willingness and courage to investigate and implement new ways of working and/or technologies are expected.


You are a talented engineer who enjoys specifying, developing and testing IT infrastructure components. You enjoy personal development both in hard skills and human skills. Furthermore, you have the following:

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in computer science, IT service management or comparable;
  • Experience with Linux;
  • Experience with network technologies;
  • Experience with software development (Python, Bash, C, C++, Java);
  • Fluent in English;
  • Preferably experience with Agile methodologies, including appropriate tooling (e.g. Jira);

Experience with a number of the following tools and technologies:

  • Git based source control systems;
  • CI/CD tooling;
  • Infrastructure as code tools, preferably Ansible;
  • Container technology.


  • A challenging job in a great team within our high-tech, innovative work environment. Includes the freedom for initiative and good ideas;
  • Room for personal and professional growth within our organisation, for example in regards to technical, commercial or international skills;
  • Valuable international collaboration with coworkers from 68 different countries around the globe;
  • A comfortable work space in a modern environment, with a focus on flexibility and the right work life balance;
  • You can usually work where and when you want to be able to do your work as well and efficiently as possible. Within Thales we implement hybrid working, where you can, for example, work from home two days a week if your role allows it;
  • A good salary, fitting travel allowance, and the ability to personalise your employment conditions: for instance, you can trade days off for internet costs, our bicycle plan, company fitness and relocation costs;
  • 40 days off per year (PTO). Yes, really.
