About the job

We have a stable product that requires little maintenance. We do greenfield development to take this system forward to meet our business goals and maintain our growth. You will be writing code and safeguarding best practices and will have an essential role in designing our new architecture with the rest of the technical team. 

These are a few examples of exciting projects you will get to work on:

It’s a joy

The work environment

We are a customer-oriented club and like to provide simple solutions. We are honest with each other and with the customer. If we are unable or unwilling to deliver something, we will say so. We like to act quickly and, above all, to do. Our working environment is further characterized by:

If you want to develop yourself in certain areas or if you want to brush up on your knowledge, you can follow some online courses that we will of course pay for.

Our stack

We don’t require experience with a specific programming language or tool, but you get bonus points for familiarity with at least some of the tools in our stack, like:

If that interests you, you can also work on other parts of our system, like our front-end codebase or mobile applications.

What we look for in developers

Being allowed to work in the Netherlands without sponsoring a visum is also preferable. We will consider exceptions to these on-site and visum requirements for genuinely exceptional candidates (e.g., having made open source contributions to tools or libraries in our stack).

Your manager

“I enjoy being a support person for the team. That often means removing distractions so you can focus on getting things done. I’m also passionate about technology. I’m looking forward to sparring with you, to learn from you and to facilitate you.”

Since COVID we work a lot from home, but we are looking for people that want to come to the office in Amsterdam at least once a week. We have a team with:

We have a small technical assignment as part of our interview process. The result is reviewed in a call or in-person meeting at the office with a few team members, which is an excellent opportunity for you to get an impression of your potential future colleagues.
