Your employer: Redifining how Software Engineering Consultancy is done!

Have you noticed that a lot of the times when you are building kick ass software the quality of your code is not the bottleneck? Reasons might be lack of communication, not adhering to the best software best practices, vague requirements, less than modern technologies or lack of quality people working on the project.

This this disruptive software consultancy scale up is showing the market a new way of solving software challenges. They are the solution to all of the challenges above! Having hired only the best Java and JavaScript software craftsmen from around the world they truly are the A-Team of Amsterdam Software Engineering. This is what required both excellent software engineering as well as people, organizational and coordinative abilities. This is where you come in.

But hey, of course their main deliverable is great software! Don’t get us wrong. (Great engineers want to build great code we all know!). What these guys help their client with too, are all of the things that are so crucial to get right in order to be able to produce, test and run great code! As they are scaling up, you can definitely still leave your mark and help shape the organization.

They are thought leaders in how to engineer code in our modern age. Architecture, Design, Cloud, Delivery Automation, Clean Coding, Reactive Programming, Intelligent Systems, Agile best practices: These guys are the place to be to soak it all up! It is no wonder they are growing so quickly as they are.
