As an authority on Internet number resources, we are looking for an Internet Resource Analyst to join us in actively contributing to a stable and innovative Internet. Our Internet Resource Analysts are diligent individuals responsible for the management of Internet number resources. Do you like working in an organisation at the forefront of internet developments directly servicing our members? Are you able to work fluently in English and would like to join an international team? Then the RIPE NCC is the place to be!

Internet Resource Analyst

Location: from our office at Amsterdam Central station and from home

Full time 37.5 hours per week

As an Internet Resource Analyst, you will manage the lifecycle of Internet number resources (IP addresses and AS numbers). Next to servicing our members you will translate RIPE community policy into processes and services for RIPE NCC members and other internal and external stakeholders, enabling them to operate and develop the Internet. You will have an administrative service role that requires an affinity with processes, procedures and controls and technical knowledge.

In this role, you will:

  • Analyse, evaluate and approve requests to distribute, transfer and maintain Internet number resources from members. You will do this in line with the RIPE community policies, taking into account the internal RIPE NCC procedural requirements, technical aspects and legal and compliance considerations.
  • Identify and investigate suspicious membership submissions and requests to prevent activities of fraud or other undesirable actions in order to protect the interests of our member community maintaining our standards for trust and security.
  • Provide assistance for RPKI, the RIPE Database and other RIPE NCC services.
  • Work on implementing new policies, setting requirements for related processes, software and on internal and external communication.
  • 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 and deliver presentations.

What we expect from you:

  • A genuine pride and intrinsic motivation to deliver high-quality, professional support to RIPE NCC members.
  • Experience in an operational service environment with a track record in continuous improvement of existing processes and shaping, documenting and implementing new policies, processes and procedures. Business process management and methodology experience (e.g. Lean and Six Sigma) would be appreciated.
  • General knowledge about “know your customer” principles and affinity with regulatory and internal compliance and control topics (e.g. client due diligence requirements and knowledge of evaluation of content and validity of official documents such as company registration papers, passports, contracts).
  • Experienced with working in projects and coordinating multi-stakeholder activities.
  • Technical knowledge or ability to quickly learn about technical details concerning IPv4/IPv6, routing protocols, DNS, Internet Service Provisioning and network and routing security.
  • Excellent interpersonal, relationship building and networking skills and an ability to work under pressure.
  • Strong communication, analytical and organisational skills.
  • Fluency in English, preferably multilingual. 

It would be nice if you are also:

  • Knowledgeable about working in a technical network supporting role, preferably in an international context (e.g. NOC engineer, Network and System Administrator, Network Analyst, Technical Support Agent).
  • Knowledgeable within the field of internet governance and the RIR system.
  • A certified RIPE Database Associate.

What you can expect from us:

  • A modern, flexible and informal work environment with an emphasis on a healthy work/life balance.
  • An annual salary between EUR 44.000 and EUR 63.000 (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: a non-contributory pension scheme, health insurance coverage for you and your family, annual technology budget for your internet connectivity and 30 vacation days plus 3 collective days, extra annual budget for health and transportation purposes.
  • A generous training allowance per year which can be used for professional development.

Registry Services department 

Our international team of 38 colleagues is responsible for some of the RIPE NCC’s key services: management of membership relations, distribution and management of Internet number resources, implementation of community policies, providing support and knowledge to our members and the wider Internet community.

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.

About the RIPE NCC

The RIPE NCC is a not-for-profit organisation founded on the belief that the Internet should be governed openly, transparently and in partnership with the wider Internet community. We are one of the oldest Internet organisations in Europe and proud of our legacy.

Our strongest asset is our staff. We bring together more than 170 people from more than 41 countries in our modern, vibrant office in the east wing of Amsterdam Central Station. At the moment, it's possible to work from the office and from home. 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: we work for the good of the Internet.
