Working at SURFnet

SURFnet enables students, lecturers, researchers and staff to work and collaborate easily and without boundaries by providing access to the best-possible IT facilities. To this end, we provide a super-fast and reliable network with innovative, high-quality IT services.

The best network for education and research

At SURFnet, innovation knows no bounds. Although we supply extremely innovative IT services, we make sure to never rest on our laurels. Our 100-strong team is constantly working on the further development of our services and brainstorming new ways to improve the network: how can we make it even faster, more reliable and more stable? Of course, we do this because we enjoy being at the cutting edge of current technology, but more importantly, because we want to ensure that our users in the world of Dutch research and education have access to only the best IT resources.
