Java Application Support Engineer - Skryv

Java Application Support Engineer

You are the primary support contact for the client and ensure that everything runs smoothly. You’ll need to get a good understanding of their context, i.e. the platform and application we have developed and the infrastructure and environments it’s installed on. Based on that, you will be able to monitor the client business application and processes, ensure they keep running and provide answers to the client in case of questions and issues.

A day at Skryv

Your workday starts at our office near Brussels Central Station or at home. You open your laptop, check in to say hello and start the day with one of the following tasks:

  • Check and update incident status, investigate for resolution and communicate to the client
  • Control on client cloud platform application status and alarms
  • Prepare service desk report for next service meeting with the client and review with the service manager
  • Participate with and support the development team in testing and deploying new releases, in coordination with the client. In the beginning, you will receive a lot of hands-on coaching. As you grow in your role, you’ll work more and more independently. As Skryv continuously grows, you’ll become the coach yourself.

What do we offer apart from your paycheck?

We want you (and all of us) to become the best in what we do. So you’ll get:

What's the procedure?

Very simple: you drop us a note (, explaining why you want to work for Skryv and how your experience can help us to become even better as a company. A link to a repo, blog or any other info is always a plus! Next, we set up a Skype call to get to know each other. If you and we are convinced that there is a good match, you come over for a few hours. You meet the team and do a short exercise that resembles the work you will do. If both sides are still happy and fully convinced, we sign a contract and get going!
