Cloud Systems Engineer

RecoMatics is a Belgian System Integrator and ISV that builds most of its business around document management and automated document processing. RecoMatics started its business in 1995 and is celebrating its 20th birthday, but it still feels like a young start-up that is more agile that it’s ever been. RecoMatics is a Microsoft Gold partner since many years.
EasyForm was the first product family RecoMatics created. Thanks to the continuous success it still is the backbone for RecoMatics ECM solutions. EasyForm has been integrated with Microsoft SharePoint.
In 2015 RecoMatics launched Vycunia, a unique SaaS solution that can import, compose and assign documents to Microsoft Dynamics CRM and lets you see it all in a single view.

To support the growth of Vycunia we’re looking to hire a Cloud Systems Engineer.
