Job requirements

So we all know the ideal candidate is an utopia, but if you can check a couple of the boxes underneath I'm sure we have enough basis to have a first "get to know eachother" call:

  • You can tell us all about the things you built in the past 4 years
  • Would be great if you hold at least a BSc degree in computer science, Information Technology, or related fields
  • You have to have a passion to deliver high quality software in a team by making technical designs, implementing features, doing code reviews, writing tests and sharing knowledge
  • Working in agile teams and slicing up big epics into MVPs is second nature to you
  • Of course you have experience developing backends, and maybe some experience in other as well. Our main tech stack is Django, Python, and React, with some PHP on the side. We use Flutter for our multi-platform mobile application.
  • You have a broad interest and experience in backend technologies but wouldn’t mind getting your hands dirty on other areas of the product if the need arises
  • If you know your way around setting up servers and infrastructure in cloud computing platforms (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud), that would be great;
  • You got some experience setting up and maintaining Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery pipelines
  • You speak and write English fluently and Dutch would be a big plus
  • You have to be eligible to work in The Netherlands already and are based in or willing to relocate to the Netherlands 

Sounds interesting, right?
