IT-Manager/Cloud Administrator (AS22-003)
Who we are

Here with us, Operations Research specialists, software developers and consultants all work together in project teams where we make complex mathematical optimization methods deployable for end users. We develop customized application software on the basis of our OPTANO platform as well as individual planning software. Our clients are successful companies  such as car manufacturers and airlines as well as leading strategy consultancies.

Since our establishment 10 years ago, we have become a very renowned company in our field. Our team in Paderborn currently has 35 employees.

We need your impetus

OPTANO is our platform for user-friendly applications and naturally we need a technical infrastructure for its development. As an IT-Manager/Cloud Administrator you will assume the following tasks:

  • Supporting the strategic and operational IT Management
  • Installing, managing and monitoring our servers/clients (primarily Windows systems) – mainly in our data center
  • Developing and maintening internal web applications
  • networking with an IP-infrastructure
  • Managing our Cloud infrastructure (e.g. Microsoft Azure/AWS)
  • Automizing solutions in Azure

You will also be the entire team's first point of contact when they have technical questions or problems.

Your qualifications

Even though we consider soft skills and teamwork to be indispensable,  a few specialist skills are necessary if you want to join us an IT-Manager/Cloud Administrator:

  • You have relevant academic qualifications or professional training
  • You think analytically and enjoy working in IT
  • You have a structured approach when working with operating systems (Windows, Linux) and virtualization technology
  • You do not shy from challenges when developing Cloud Services and Managed Services. Instead, you welcome them
  •  You have acquired first experience of working with Microsoft Azure and a keen interest to extend your abilities in this field.
  • You have acquired first experience of working with SQL servers (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server or MYSQL Server).

We are looking to hire somebody who always strives to achieve the best solutions and enjoys developing PowerShell scripts or new technologies.

Does this sound like the ideal job for you? Great! If not, don’t worry. In the past, we have been successful in working together with colleagues to promote their development and helping them to acquire new skills. If you lack the experience listed in any of the points mentioned above but are still confident that you are qualified for the position, then you can explain this to us in your covering letter when applying.
