For its branch office in Leuven, Belgium, ITQ is looking for a passionate DevOps engineer with focus on Kubernetes, to support and drive our booming ‘Modern Apps’ business, based on Pivotal and VMware PKS.

You are an experienced Cloud-Native platform specialist with the ability to quickly adopt and embrace new technology.

You love to help our customers with the design and implementation of solutions on top of Cloud Native platforms such as Kubernetes, so they can deploy and scale their apps automatically, securely, and in a resilient way.

You have experience with – and an opinion on – various architectural patterns such as microservices, and development related concepts and methodologies such as Agile and DevOps. You possess architectural skills: you participate or lead in the design and deployment of the technical solution, and are capable of translating business needs into technical requirements.

You will have the great opportunity to help ITQ build its CNA (Cloud Native Apps) approach and business in BeLux. Watch Ruurd Keizer, our VP CAN of ITQ in Netherlands, explaining why we have a Cloud Native practice at ITQ.

You are a Belgium resident and understand the role software development has in today’s world is fundamentally different than it was 10 years ago, and are able to challenge customers in discussions about how development can become a business driver. You are looking to immerse yourself in challenging environments to get yourself and your colleagues to a higher level.


  • A basic understanding of how Kubernetes is deployed, and how it consumes (virtual) infrastructure – including Kubernetes masters/nodes, ingress/load balancers, persistent storage.

  • Knowledge of and experience with configuration management and with automation and orchestration tools (i.e. vRealize Orchestrator, Puppet, Ansible, Chef, BOSH).
