De Brauw is looking for a Technical Application Consultant!

About the role

You will play a key role in executing our next generation IT architecture. This means implementing and supporting SAAS and PAAS-based solutions for business requirements and supporting big data and artificial intelligence-oriented platforms for our legal tech solutions. We service over 200 different applications (+/- 20 core applications), within an integrated landscape. We develop in-house, customised applications on the Mendix platform.

You will have your own focus applications and work closely with business information managers and suppliers, and will facilitate and train the service desk on supporting these applications. As Technical Application Consultant, you will form part of a sub-team consisting of six Application Managers and will work closely with the IT operations team. Together, both teams will safeguard the continuity and consistency of systems and data.

In part, your role will consist of conducting regular operational application maintenance; providing 2nd line support; release management; and managing relationships with relevant suppliers, business information managers and IT operations. You will also be involved in implementing new (cloud) solutions, by participating in company-wide projects (Agile/Scrum and Waterfall).

Who are you?

Our perfect candidate for this position:

  • has at least three years’ experience with operational and tactical management of (business critical) applications
  • has a bachelor’s or master’s degree
  • is service oriented and results driven
  • knows how to build relationships with colleagues at all levels; is motivated, flexible and enthusiastic
  • has an innovative, analytical and structured approach

Who are we?

The position of Technical Application Consultant forms part of the IT Department. The IT team consists of about 40 FTE. Our IT team provides services to almost 700 staff and 1000 office spaces. You will report to the Manager – Applications & Development.

De Brauw is a Netherlands-headquartered law firm with a global reach. We have a robust corporate practice, a centre of excellence in litigation and an unparalleled team of regulatory experts. In our international litigation practice, we handle big and complex matters involving big risks, working in multidisciplinary, multinational teams composed of strong strategic thinkers willing to go the extra mile. We believe in striking the right balance between rigour and pragmatism, especially when the stakes are high and the pressure is on.

In addition to working hard, we also like to have fun. We have weekly company drinks, regular table football matches (and competitions) and events such as inter-company hockey matches, the Amstel Gold Race, pub quizzes etc.

We offer you excellent work-life balance, including flexible working hours and the possibility to work from home. Employees also have great secondary benefits such as: a company phone and laptop; a 13th month; discounted gym membership; over 150 online and in-person training opportunities; unlimited beverages and fresh fruit; and, last but not least, being part of a dedicated team in an exciting environment.
