Your employer: 100% products company will innovate core engine self-driving cars and road safety

This medium-sized products company from Amersfoort has been a great success for years. Very tangible products are developed here that make the daily life of many people (and soon also in Europe) a bit easier. You can think of self-driving cars, shopping, and traffic safety. You can understand that the social relevance here is high. The products and systems developed here are all highly available, real-time, and deal with enormous amounts of data. Think of in-house developed algorithms, which have received high praise within the world of software engineering and you have a diversity of complex backend challenges to sink your teeth into.

The company has entered an interesting phase. After years of healthy growth in the Netherlands, there is now a lot of interest in the products from Europe. This means that the teams will be scaled up, products will be innovated and many new features will be developed. This means a lot of new construction and even more data that the systems have to process.

The culture is everything you can expect from an innovative products organization; driven, professional, and energetic. Knowledge sharing and room to apply new technologies in their current environment are very common here. Here they really work around the limits of the possibilities of current technology, so making mistakes is also part of it. After all, that’s how you learn, isn’t it? Furthermore, the atmosphere is very informal, lots of fun and flexible working hours and 3 to 4 fixed home working days are possible.
