Data center technical specialist in Rotterdam


As a Technical data center specialist you are part of an operations team within the Data Center & Networks department, which is part of ING's Tech Infrastructure & Engineering organization. For this role, fluency in Dutch is mandatory. This position is based in Rotterdam.

The opportunity
You direct the management, maintenance and changes/projects of the technical facilities (mechanical and electrical) of ING's own data center and you are involved in an advisory capacity in the services of ING's data center in the Netherlands (and possibly abroad). Within these activities the focus is on the continuity of service.

The team

In a small team you ensure continuity of high-quality technical installations, such as power, cooling, fire alarm, mechanical and electrical installations. With this you contribute to the availability of online applications that ING customers use.

Roles and responsibilities

As a technical data center specialist, the emphasis of your role is mainly on being in control of the continuity and availability of the technical installations for the data center. Managing, monitoring and guaranteeing the daily routine in the field of technical preventive and corrective maintenance of technical installations, such as electrical systems (LV and HV), UPS systems, generators, cooling installations. During office hours you coordinate complex maintenance work in the field of HVAC, electrical engineering and measurement & control technology, which are performed by our suppliers. You also perform tests in installations, systems and you perform switching actions.

To guarantee the continuity of ING services, you work with the team in an on-call service, outside office hours, in which you coordinate the handling of malfunctions.

You manage the maintenance parties contracted by ING who, based on their own technical expertise, ensure that malfunctions (corrective) and regular (preventive) maintenance are carried out at an operational level. The maintenance parties support you in supplying and safeguarding data with regard to legislation and regulations from technology. Think for example of NEN2767, NEN3140, etc. In this you have a tactical role in which you must safeguard the laws and regulations.

Some other activities are:

Ensuring the continuity and availability of our technical installations
Safeguarding the various Assets in the maintenance management system (with support from the contractor)
Requesting and assessing quotations (sub)contractors
Support with the preparation of MJOP (Multi-Year Maintenance Plan) and MJOB (Budget)
Optimize performance of the technical infrastructure both financially and towards ING's sustainability objectives
Your work environment

The team in which you will be working (OPS1) focuses on the building-related technical infrastructure of the data centers. This team works in close collaboration with the OPS2 (data space facilities), DC CoE (knowledge and advisory team) and Haas (IT Hardware) teams. As a whole, these departments provide the overall data center services for ING's IT users, both nationally and internationally, under the heading of “Global Data Center Services (GDS)”.

It is a challenging work environment in which an experienced team will introduce you to the installations, working methods and processes in a data center. When you have gained enough experience and feel comfortable to take on more responsibility, you will work independently within the team. The installations you will be managing form the basis on which all ING applications and online services function. A working environment with a high risk of damage that calls on your technical creativity. It is a team where collegiality is of paramount importance.
