We live in a connected world, we all know that. The world has become a global village and if you want to, you can communicate with anyone, anywhere, at any time. If you are an inquisitive person, you probably sometimes ask yourself how this came to be. After all, just 40 years ago, the internet did not exist, nor did mobile phones, not to mention videoconferencing or collaboration tools. And what is happening now, is by no means the end of the evolution. Want to be a part of this exciting chapter in the history of technology? Then joining our networking team is your next logical move. And for more than one good reason. Five good reasons, in fact.
If you compare IT to football, we can safely say that Simac ICT Belgium is firmly in the Champions League. Simac plays with the big boys: we are always at the forefront of innovation, investing in emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and whatever comes up next. What’s more, we partner only with market leaders. Cisco, HPE, Fortinet, NetApp, Microsoft,… That’s the kind of companies we engage with. Top products, top support, that’s what you work with when at Simac. No wonder we’ve been a Cisco Gold partner for several years.
Working with A-brands and highly qualified personnel means we also land deals at technically challenging customers. We assist them in getting the most out of their existing infrastructure and help them transform their business. Did you know that many of our customers have worked with us for over 20 years? They keep asking us back to help them gain a competitive edge. They push us to come up with new ideas and new technologies that make their business grow. No chance of falling asleep on the job with these demanding customers. But boy, will you extend yourself technically!
Simac believes in investing in its people. Knowledge and expertise are qualities that differentiate Simac from the rest of the pack, so we do everything possible to keep our specialists up to speed on any new developments. This means our networking engineers are regularly trained and certified, and we also urge them to network with their peers at conferences such as Cisco Live in Barcelona. At events like these, you can learn, extend yourself and get inspired. Many companies restrict participation to these events to their senior people. Not so at Simac. If we think you will benefit by attending, you will attend! That is the case for instance for Yu Qingyue, who joined Simac in 2019. Even as a junior networking engineer, he gets the chance to further hone his skills at networking in Barcelona.
Grow! Grow! Grow!
In a fast-changing technology world, opportunities for growth are up for grabs. Simac allows its people to grow and build their own career inside the company. Over the years, many people that started working at the helpdesk have extended themselves, becoming IT consultants or presales engineers. The close collaboration between the different teams makes it easy to exchange knowledge and experience according to what the colleagues are working on. “People at Simac have different levels of expertise,” says Yu Qingyue. “That way you can learn a lot from each other. And when I want to dive deeper into some specific aspect of networking, I can take the time I need for that during business hours and don’t have to invest my own free time in it.”
Welcome to the family!
Finally, let’s play the culture card. Simac ICT Belgium is a mid-size company and has a close-knit family culture. We firmly believe in flat structures, not hierarchies. We realize that happy employees make happy customers. That’s why we go to great lengths to make people feel at home at Simac. IT is more than technology to us, it’s also about building teams that collaborate to put technology to use. Or what we call ‘Teamnology’.
