Network Engineer

Excentis is a telecommunications engineering company and testing lab looking for a RF and Network Technology Engineer.

We are worldwide considered as experts in cable networks and Wi-Fi technology. We are proud to be the reference lab for certification of just about all the standards for cable networks. For many of these standards we’re the only ones in the world. Our clients are telecom providers and manufacturers of broadband network equipment: Intel, Cisco, Nokia, Samsung, Telenet or Vodafone. We test their equipment, advise them, train engineers and deliver best-in-class testing and monitoring solutions.

Our home base is beautiful Ghent, Belgium. Our company thrives on innovation and atmosphere, the vibe is energetic and inspiring!

Our work environment

We foster ownership and entre/intrapreneurial spirit in a setting that is truly innovative, positive and inspiring. We communicate in an open, direct and informal way. Teamwork is not an empty promise, we love challenging and helping each other (ask our colleagues).

We enjoy learning new things, this world is fast-pace, but we also take deep dives, to become experts in our fields. From our (seriously) beautiful Ghent office we support clients from all over the planet, reaching millions, billions of end customers.

The job

It’s no secret we demand more and more from our internet connections. Faster speed is definitely one of the biggest requirements. Download speeds of 10Gbps are within current range. We support our clients with a wide variety of services in order to introduce the latest and greatest technologies to the end user as quickly as possible. Our clients reach out to us in early development stages for analysis, troubleshooting and tweaking.

If you’re, just like us, passionate about the future of the internet, interested in communication networks and always aiming for high quality delivery, this might be for you!

After an intensive internal learning trajectory, you will be:

  • Executing tests on network equipment using high-end measurement equipment
  • Configuring networking equipment (switches, routers, …)
  • Developing and improving testing scripts
  • Analyzing and (where and if possible) solving of discovered errors. Really digging into technical specs is crucial
  • Reporting with bells on
  • Building and optimizing test setups in labs.

Depending on your interests and requirements within the team, you can grow into coaching, training, consultancy, R&D or become a project owner!
