DevOps Engineer Cognos
Employee | Tech | Professional | Netherlands | North Holland | 2019-02-18 | REQ-10015221
ING Domestic Bank Netherlands is building a state-of-the-art Data Lake and Business Intelligence environment. An ambitious project based on technologies like IBM InfoSphere (DataStage, TWS-D and Information Governance Catalogue), Netezza, Cognos Analytics and Hadoop.
As a DevOps engineer you will be working in a scrum squad of 6-8 people consisting of three or four other DevOps engineers and two or three Business Analysts. In addition there will be a Product Owner who decides on the priority of the user stories. The squad is responsible for the Cognos Analytics platform within the Netherlands and Belgium.
Business support is the main part of your job. You and your fellow engineers are not only responsible for supporting users with the use of Cognos, including incident management and bug fixing. You will also be responsible for keeping the operational controls, which are a key part of the risk appetite of the bank, up to date.
Important task of the DevOps engineer is to advice users in face-to-face contact how to use the platform and underlying data. You will be part of the cross-border squad in NL and will regularly travel between Amsterdam and Brussels.
