For Vandebron it is very important to monitor and enhance our IT infrastructure. The first part of this internship consists of maintaining our current infrastructure, to make sure our operations are running smoothly. This part also includes hands-on tasks such as working with our firewalls and access points, iMac and Macbook fleet, configuring our cloud software applications, maintaining a high standard of security configurations, etc.
The second part of this internship is project-based. We have many ideas on improving our IT infrastructure and are able to prioritize, also based on your experience and knowledge, projects that really innovate the way of working within Vandebron. The focus of your assignment is to explore and find ways to automate our ongoing processes as much as possible. You work together with our systems engineer rockstar: Robbert Jaspers. He has a lot of relevant experience and can help you learn all the ins and outs of the profession. You will also have a close collaboration with our Devops team. Here technical software improvements come together with technical hardware elements. You will work on the edge of these disciplines.
Please note that this is not a programming internship. Depending on your project assignment it is possible that you will be coding, but this will only be a portion of how you will be spending your time.
Examples of projects that you could be working on:
- Implementing a new telephone system that will be used by the whole company, including setting up automation rules.
- Automating the provisioning of accounts between applications.
- Writing code to setup and maintain cloud infrastructure.
- Automating tasks that were done manually before.
- Setting up a traffic monitoring system for our network.

At Vandebron we strongly believe in the agile principles. We strive to follow the manifesto and we use Scrum as a structure way to plan and adapt our development. Always with a strong focus on customer value. We believe in quality and clean code and our speed is based releasing the smartest MVP rather than compromising the quality of our work. We have 2 week sprints and we manage to continuously deliver value for Vandebron. We move fast and we want our improvements to be in production even before our sprint is finished. We make it possible for Vandebron to offer new services online, like our new ‘smart energy platform’ where we use blockchain technology to develop ‘smart charging’ propositions which is used to speed up the transition to sustainable energy. Also, we offer all our services via a state of the art ecosystem where web (React.js) and app (React native) play an important role and while disrupting our market. Of course we are making sure that our (internal/external) processes, which rely heavily on IT (cloud) systems, remain speedy and flexible. We love creativity, and we're more than happy to give our developers the freedom to express themselves, growing both personally and professionally in a wonderful working environment.
