Become an IT Ninja @ Telenet

At Telenet there is an IT revolution taking place, this does not mean that we are moving to the cloud, but the way that we use IT is in a constant state of change. Just because that change isn’t immediately obvious, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t taking place and won’t happen in the near future. Think of the technological innovations that are just around the corner: from augmented reality, quantum computing, advanced analytics and robotics, to machine learning and many more. All these new technologies require new process paradigms, new skills and most of all new attitudes. We need quick, flexible thinkers, with the ability to think-outside-the-box and help us develop radical new approaches to IT.
