Do you want to become the lead architect of a global backup and disaster recovery solutions? If you can draw the lines of our future data protection strategy, we want you as our next Senior Systems Administrator here at Coloplast. 


About the team 


Global IT Infrastructure is a team of Systems Administrators and IT Specialists working out of our offices in Denmark, Poland, and UK. Our area of responsibility is the operation and maintenance of Coloplast’s global Windows / Intel server infrastructure hardware, hypervisor, and server OS as well as Windows core services, SharePoint, SQL & Office 365. We also provide backup and monitoring for these platform services as well for the business applications. 


Join us and become part of the group of Systems Administrators in Coloplast’s Global IT Infrastructure team that designs, implements, and operates the server IT Infrastructure within Coloplast. 


About the job 


If you dream of developing the grand schemes of future and present backup and disaster recovery solutions of a global company, you are reading the right job ad. Working closely with our vendors, other subject matter experts and the Head of Global Infrastructure you will orchestrate the safety of our on-prem servers and cloud solutions as the tech lead for our Global Backup platform. 


We are a dynamic team, so not all your tasks will be within global backup but will branch out into the other Infrastructure areas as well. You have a senior role and are expected to see the broader connections within the different fields of expertise, and you will work closely with the other tech leads and team members, to drive our deliveries and secure our high standard of service. 


Besides that, you: 

  • Monitor and maintain the global backup platform to optimize performance, security, and secure capacity requirements. 

  • Provide advanced troubleshooting within other areas of Global IT. 


At Global IT Infrastructure you will be working with various Microsoft based technologies including Windows based server platforms and hardware for compute and storage in our data centers and subsidiaries virtualized with VMware, backup infrastructure systems and monitoring systems.  



Our ideal candidate for the job: 

  • Are experienced as a backup tech lead for a minimum of three years 

  • Have extensive experience (3-5 years) with operating and maintaining operating IT systems and infrastructure in corporate environment 

  • Have experience with project management and analytical skills 


With the team-oriented way we work at Coloplast in mind, it is important that you know how to communicate - with colleagues that are excellent in other areas of IT and with colleagues and stakeholders outside of Global IT, that do not speak the technological language as you do. 

You enjoy providing sparing and assist in setting the technology direction together with your fellow team members and the Head of Global Infrastructure for the Global Infrastructure technology landscape as a whole and participate in getting the team to reach its set goals. 

You understand how to think freely and can problem solve on a strategic level without a manual. You can see the big picture and you know how to create results and look to the future, so that your colleagues have well-working technologies to operate within. 



We will take candidates into the recruitment process continuously, so do not hesitate to apply. This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
