The organization

This organization tests medicines before they are launched on the international market. The most recent example is the testing of the Jansen vaccine. Currently they are also testing drugs for Parkinson, Alzheimer, depression and various painkillers. In order to ensure that these drugs are safe to use, they need to be extensively tested in high-quality clinical trials. To this end, there is close cooperation with Leiden University and the LUMC. The organization implements the latest technologies and is in the process of transitioning to a Cloud environment. They are a fast growing organization where the human touch comes first. The higher social goal is important to the employees.


As a Senior System Engineer you are responsible for the development, implementation and management of the various IT systems. The daily management will mainly be done by the support department and the senior system administrators. This gives you a lot of time to be proactive in improving the systems. You are involved in the development and design of new systems. In this you have a lot of freedom. You will be dealing with migrations of on-premise environments towards Office 365. In addition, a major migration towards Azure is planned, so knowledge of Azure is also important.

The company as a whole employs 400 people, some of whom are permanent employees surrounded by a flexible workforce. In the IT team, everyone works on the basis of a permanent contract. The IT team consists of 9 people + a director. Within the team you will find support engineers, medior system administrators, a senior engineer, date engineer and a project manager. Although in some cases you will have to work closely together, you are not the support department’s go-to person, this task is taken care of by the administrators.


This organization is characterized by an open and approachable culture with short lines. You have lunch with your colleagues (unless you work at home). During lunch, the CEO sits next to a support engineer and a data engineer next to someone from reception, so you meet everyone. There is no dress code and on a social level, a lot is organized. Think of a ski trip, Christmas dinner, BBQ, etc.).
