Applied Observability Specialist
As an Applied Observability Specialist, you’ll identify and analyze opportunities across various layers of an organization to enhance observability capabilities and seamless integration and system reliability.

Imagine a role where your expertise in monitoring, logging and tracing serves as the guiding compass for optimizing the quality of our integration solutions. In a world steeped in data and AI projections, we heed Gartner’s advice: “the future is not about predicting, it’s about preparing.”

That’s exactly our mission: to guide our clients towards anticipation, preparation, and success in a world that often settles for mere predictions. Through systematic applied observability, we aim to hand them a significant competitive advantage. By leveraging ultimate data insights, we aspire to refine decision-making and boost business operations, all unfolding in real time. And your expertise could be the key to unlock these valuable insights!


We are Archers, a tight-knit community of +25 integration architects that belong to the CornerBriX-cluster – the biggest integration community in Belgium. As true integration experts, there’s nothing we love more than solving complex integration challenges with innovative technologies in the field of systems, data, applications and process integration related to EDA, APIs, Cloud, Mobile, Microservices and so much more!

Sharing knowledge and supporting each other in our professional and personal growth lies at the heart of our community. This is why we organize AKDs – Archers Knowledge Days – on a monthly basis. A whole day designed to share insights gained from conferences, projects, literature, and market trends. Afterwards, you’ll often find us enjoying some good food and drinks together!
