You will also be a key actor of our continuous improvement process, focusing on Network integrations, to make it always faster, more efficient, easier. You will also ensure that you are always one step ahead and already aware of new possibilities offered by upcoming technologies (e.g. Network Function Virtualization, 5G, Netconf, etc.), and identify transition paths for our product integrations towards such new technologies.

  •  Yourself: As a recent start-up (now actually going to scale-up phase), we will be eager to receive input from you and strive to reach ever more ambitious objectives. Together.
