The team that awaits you

Daily e-ve-ry Dutchman uses services that run through Tele2 networks. Talk about impact! The core of these services is our Network & IT department. Customer affiliation, service configurations, billing, hosting & security services; we are responsible for it all. Many of our IT systems for our Fixed & 4G services are developed, built and maintained by Tele2’s international Shared Operations organization. This allows us to work more efficient and keeps us competitive. The management for this all is based here, in Diemen. Where we consider all questions in the Dutch market. We do this in small, flexible teams that are close to the business and supplemented by tech-professionals from all over the world. Did we forget something? Oh, the most enjoyable network-drinks of the Netherlands of course!

This is how we plan to grow together 

At Tele2 we have quite an ambitious bunch of people walking around. People who we like to give all the room they need to come up with new initiatives. To challenge each other. And to challenge us. Why? Because it helps us grow. Both you and us. This makes Tele2 (if we may say so ourselves) a fantastic place to work. You being the best you can be, and our business getting ahead of the competition. Oh, and it’s not just a one way street. Of course we like to give you something back. Like investing in your personal growth. And we also love to learn from you! (Soufflé’s? Seriously. Teach us!) So join us. Knock us of our socks.

A little bit more about ourselves (if you insist)

At Tele2 we are all about breaking open telecom monopolies and shaking up markets. Simply so that customers can enjoy their products care free. This is what we’ve been doing since 1997, when we changed the market for fixed telephony. And that’s what we like to do now. In fact, we love the internet so much, that we’ve started building the 4G network that people are dreaming about. Apping, swiping, tweeting, and watching cat movies on every street corner will never be the same.
