Tech Talent Program Network Engineering in Utrecht


A fixed network that breaks the Gbps speed barrier and 5G network that enables self driving cars. VodafoneZiggo invents the future today, allowing millions of customers to connect and engage quickly, safely, and effortlessly. And yes, we’re more than ‘just’ a provider of connections. We dream big. We drive positive change. From e-care innovations to IoT solutions that reduce CO2 footprints: we envision a future that is so bright, sunglasses should be part of our compensations package. ;-)

To realize our dream, we need the help of tech talents who are eager to learn and bold enough to break existing barriers. You are not afraid to try new ways of working, invent new solutions and do things different. You bring the skills and the ideas; we offer the tools and the perfect work place to get it done and to build your career.

Tech Talent Program Network Engineering

You can choose out of the four domains within our emerging technologies: Cloud, IoT, Data and 5G. Don’t worry, your choice does not have to be a permanent one. With our Unlimited Learning we help you to keep on improving yourself and we encourage internal transfers to other domains to benefit both your career and VodafoneZiggo.

Do it your way
And be an entrepreneur. All roads are open as Tech Talent at VodafoneZiggo. And where those roads lead? We honestly don’t know yet, because we have only just embarked on our journey and it’s up to you and your team to map the terrain. That requires a ‘dare-devilish’ spirit because you sometimes have to make bold decisions without knowing all the facts. Let alone all possible outcomes. The role also calls for true craftsmanship. After all, you are the (wo)man with the plan, and colleagues look to you for guidance and inspiration. Speaking of colleagues: we stimulate autonomy but embrace cross-functional cooperation. If you’re allergic to sharing, fuhgeddaboudit. ;-)

About the job
You lay the foundation for a micro-service based and API environment and services that facilitates, empowers and inspires teams to maximize customer value. 24/7 and at breakneck speed, so time to market is minimized.

An impactful role, because VodafoneZiggo connects millions and leads the pack in revolutionizing fixed, mobile and internet services. A role that comes with a unique set of challenges. How can the service network environment accelerate our transition into a digital telco? How can we make sure our new NaaS and Micro-Service, and legacy solutions don’t end up in a prolonged and messy divorce? Which building blocks are essential for developers, and which can be relegated to the nice-to-have backlog? We have the questions; you have the answers!

Team up
We are still building the Tech Talent Program that you will be part of. Together with 8-10 other Tech Talents, you will start your journey within the Mobile Network department led by Andre Beijen. Within your domain, of course you have a manager, but we also assign a buddy to you who can help you kickstart your career at VodafoneZiggo and who is there for you when you don’t know the answer.

About VodafoneZiggo
We don’t do work locations. But should you want to meet colleagues, our Headquarters in Utrecht is where you will feel at home. A great work environment, including:

  • Easy access to public transportation + inner city fun; the train station and Utrecht city center are five minutes away;
  • An app that points you to an available workspace. Want to know how noisy and/or warm that area is? The app’s got you covered!
  • Great coffee at our coffee bars – our baristas are always happy to serve;
  • An after-lunch game of FIFA or Pacman? Or a race in our F1 simulator? Fun is included!
  • Fresh out of snacks? Forgot (yikes!) someone’s birthday? Shop ‘till you drop at the Hoog Catharijne shopping mall.

VodafoneZiggo connects millions of people and organizations. This is how we create value. For individuals. And for society as a whole. From our technicians and customer support professionals, to all of our office staff; our 8.000+ colleagues are eager to drive that positive change. To do so, we share three values: Open Up, Team Up and Step Up. These represent thinking positively, listening to and learning from each other, with a focus on collaboration, plus a penchant for thinking and acting out of the box. That calls for people who dare to transcend their comfort zone and face challenges with a welcoming smile. Is that you? Let’s meet up!
