Business Platform Team Operations

The future of travel is now. That is why we use data and technology for smarter and more efficient operations at Schiphol. We predict passenger flows and test digital solutions to reduce queues and other pain points in the process. With smart feedback from sensor technology, we even make data from toilets and seats transparent and usable. All this and more takes place in the IT & Data department. This department consists of several sub-departments: the foundation Schiphol Telematics, Enabling Technology, and Data, AI & Analytics and the guardrails of the CIO Office. Five business platform teams complete the IT & Data department: Asset Management, Safety Security & Environment, Commercial, Employee & IT Project Delivery and Operations. This last platform focuses on making our operation, the heart of the organization, smarter and more efficient. Within this department we are looking for a QA engineer.

The role

As a quality assurance engineer, you’ll be part of a multidisciplinary team developing a core application of Schiphol Airport, the central information system for Schiphol (CISS).

You will share with your colleagues the 24/7 production support shifts for CISS (about one every 5 weeks).
