Your role as a DevOps Engineer Frontend means being the star player in:

  • work on state of the art technologies. We build our applications with Angular 10, rely heavily on NgRx state management. Serve the applications from NodeJS or our headless Sitecore 10 platform.
  • take ownership and feel responsible for our applications serving more than 2 million energy customers that buy our electricity and gas products but also our Energy+ products and services such as Solar Panels, Heating, Isolation and Energy advice.
  • feel the urge to keep our applications up-to-date and continuously improve the system with a strong focus on automation in our Gitlab CI/CD pipeline.
  • work closely together with your Agile DevOps team and take part in the rituals of our SAFe way of working.

We are currently mainly working on features for two applications:

  • Under the name Sitecore, we are working on a new digital platform with which we provide all our customers with a digital "my" environment. About 17,000 customers log in every day to arrange all their energy matters with this platform.
  • Cockpit is the name of the application that our call center agents and back office employees work with. Every day, 400 colleagues use the software that we develop together to provide our customers with the best possible service and help as quickly as possible.

Your team works closely with our business’ exploitation teams, consisting of frontend developers, content managers and UI/UX designers to optimize the customer experience for each specific brand.

You embrace the DevOps mentality by giving and taking ownership, and the will to constantly improve. You are always looking for ways to make development life cycles better, simpler and more reliable.You have a “you-built-it-you-own-it” mind set. You revel in continues improvement and are eager to develop your skills.You adjust to constant business change; common types of changes include new requirements, evolving goals and strategies, and emerging technologies.

In this role, you will specifically work for the Essent brand. Essent is our full-service brand for consumers, SMEs and large businesses. At Essent, we not only know a lot about energy, but also about customers. We want to help consumers and companies in an accessible way, step-by-step, to make their home or business more sustainable. With the aim of saving energy. We do this together with our installers in the country. Not by making plans for the distant future; we know what is going on with customers today and we really do something with it. Essent helps you today with all your energy solutions. Big or small. For a carefree feeling - now and in the future.

You are Essent

Working together as one team to win our customers’ loyalty. It gives you an energy boost like no other. We can only grow by being enterprising, asking critical questions and always wanting to do better. This applies to you as a member of the Essent team and us as a company. Whether you prefer to work behind the scenes or in the spotlight. It doesn't matter. Will you make an impact for yourself, the team and our customers? Then you tick all the boxes if you also have:

  • A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Engineering, Informatics, Business Informatics or equivalent fields.
  • 3+ years of analysis and programming experience, preferably in a commercial organization.
  • Demonstrated ability to analyze and interpret complex problems or processes, identify and understand requirements, and develop alternate solutions with the end consumer in mind.
  • Experience in designing, developing, testing, deploying and/or operating applications/systems using proven or emerging technologies, in a variety of technologies and environments.
  • Non-Dutch citizens are also welcome to apply. It is desirable that you speak Dutch and requires that you have an EU work permit.
  • Strong expertise in software development which means you are an expert in Javascript, have a good practice with modern web application frameworks like React, Vue or preferably Angular and know how to write semantic and accessible HTML.
  • Last but not least you understand the basics of content management, preferably within Sitecore and are experienced in developing and maintaining a CI/CD Pipeline (Git, Octopus).

You’re in top form. A real member of the Essent team in heart and soul, who works shoulder to shoulder for a single goal. You also have demonstrated ability to interact, develop, engineer, and communicate collaboratively and effectively at technical levels with clients, vendors, partners, and all levels of Essent Staff.
