About the Challenge

Where many fail to see the growing importance of cloud computing, you’re an early adopter. You’re passionate about innovation, technology and disruption, and you love to share your knowledge and experience about the cloud as a kind of modern prophet for development teams.

As a data-driven company, Belfius is constantly building a modern and reliable architecture and providing solutions for the company’s growing digital requirements. They have even set up a Pathfinders Team to support these changes. The Pathfinders are dedicated to discovering new technologies and paving the way for developers. Their goal is to improve the development journey of other colleagues.

Belfius is seeking a Cloud Software Engineer for the Pathfinders team, who will reflect on the integration and adoption of new technologies and new ways of working. He/she will be responsible for bringing our mainframe to the cloud. You will implement a reliable, sustainable and customer-oriented architecture, working closely with other colleagues and several bank departments.


Your skills

Your key tasks:

  • Validate and challenge the architecture principles
  • Elaborate documentation to support the development team
  • Research new technologies
  • Participate in the design of technical architecture
  • Contribute to determining the IT solution
  • Actively document the new standardisations

To convince us you’re up to the task, we expect you to:

  • Be an autonomous, proactive self-starter with a problem-solving and coaching mentality
  • Know cloud components and development on Azure – we have a 9 week paid traineeship to strengthen your knowledge and skills!

In return, we ensure that you can optimally develop and use your skills and talents. We respect your work-life balance because that’s the only way you like to keep working. You choose how you fill your day, when you start or how long your lunch break is. You combine working from home with coming to the office near the Brussels-North train station. There, you’ll find a fitness room, a restaurant and cosy meeting places for a chat with colleagues.
