Are you an all-rounder and interested in IT? Keen to be part of a team and get results? Does problem solving come naturally? Then this is the perfect opportunity for you!

Essential role in key department

The Daikin IT Center EMEA in Belgium comprises three departments: IT Planning, IT Development and IT Infrastructure, which support the needs of our growing business. As part of the IT Infrastructure team, your task will be to prepare and implement these standardisation and centralisation projects.
