Are you a passionate network expert driven by designing, building, and operating the infrastructure that support professional digital systems?

Being a part of Aller IT means belonging to a modern Nordic IT organization within Aller Group.

  • Configure and maintain our network, monitor performance and integrity.
  • Are an integral part of the Operations team and with IT colleagues (local and Nordic) to design and build integrated system solutions.
  • Help design and implement our network security strategy, incl. next-generation firewall features and capabilities and other security strengthening measures.

While drawing on your specialized and solid knowledge in network design, we also expect that you like to get hands-on experience working with running systems, and that you are ready to log into a Windows server and assist your dedicated colleagues in our daily operations.

In other words: You will quickly get very close to all associated organizations within the Aller business, both locally and at the Nordic level, and have ample opportunity to see the positive effect of your work in practice.
