  • Evaluate and give guidance for IPv6 deployment plans
  • Provide assistance for RPKI, the RIPE Database and other RIPE NCC services
  • Perform audits of RIPE NCC member accounts, promoting and supporting an accurate and up-to-date RIPE Registry
  • Attend RIPE NCC and industry events and represent the organisation by providing on-site support to members, deliver presentations
  • Manage the company wide projects aimed at implementing new policies, setting requirements for related processes, software, internal and external communication

 What we expect from you:

  • At least three years of experience in a network supporting role in an international team (NOC engineer, Network and System Administrator, Network Analyst, Technical Support Agent)
  • High level of technical knowledge: in particular regarding IPv4/IPv6; routing protocols; DNS; Internet Service Provisioning; network and routing security
  • A fluent command of English
  • Strong analytical and organisational skills with an ability to identify trends and build proposals for improvements

  • An annual salary between EUR 42.600 and EUR 61.300 (before tax) for a fulltime week (37.5 hours per week). This includes the standard 8% annual “holiday pay” and a 5% end-of-year bonus.
  • Excellent secondary benefits: including relocation, a non-contributory pension scheme, 26-weeks paid parental leave, top-tier health insurance coverage for you and your family and 30 vacation days (full-time)
  • A generous training allowance per year which can be used for professional development

The Team:

Registration Services 
Our international team of 23 colleagues is responsible for some of the RIPE NCC’s key services: distribution and management of Internet number resources, implementation of community policies, providing support and knowledge to our members and the wider Internet community. We are at the forefront of the Internet developments.  If you are thorough with a desire for accuracy and consistency, are engaging, warm and enthusiastic, then you’d fit in well with our fun, dynamic and hardworking team.

If you’ve been following the industry closely, you will know that the remaining IPv4 address pool has been exhausted. This means that you will be part of a transition towards managing the lifecycle of IPv4 space rather than the distribution of IPv4, and towards the growth in the IPv6 adoption. You will be part of ensuring that the Internet registry remains as strong and accurate as ever.

Our strongest asset is our staff. We bring together more than 150 people from more than 38 countries in our modern, vibrant office in the east wing of Amsterdam Central Station. Our official working language is English, but more than 30 languages are spoken by our colleagues. 

Our backgrounds are diverse, but our goal is the same: work for the good of the Internet. And we are now working collaboratively with our staff to transform our company culture to facilitate our evolution into the future. Do you want to join us on this journey?
