I work in the ISS department of DSI Thales Global Services. What I particularly like about my job is that I see "the other side" of an IS: design.
After 10 years in production, my experience allows me to better anticipate the needs of operators from the outset of my projects. I enjoy these new responsibilities involving budgeting and the management of people from different sectors.
This new vision will enable me, over time, to focus on the end to end experience of an IS, from an operational, managerial and cross-sector viewpoint.
Also, the fact that the environment also concerns security, with one of the global leaders in the field in a niche that is both promising and privileged, it provides inestimable added value for my career.
We seek people with Bac +4/5 education from universities, an engineering school or equivalent.
