Your job: Radically enables the adoption of technology for leading global tech companies

This success story started as an experiment within the most famous software engineering hub in the Netherlands. Their genius idea of building technology that would allow other software engineers to grow by enabling and sharing new technology more quickly was directly successful. In a relatively short time this tech scale-up now has the best software engineers from the most famous software companies as their customers. How cool is that? Help other software engineers grow! Like being a footballer and learning Lionel Messi to improve his free kicks.

Due to the success, the entrepreneurs quickly decided to set up their own company, under the wings of a very rich and successful software engineering company with some of the smartest minds working there. Because the rest of the world is increasingly discovering the power of the new to the world product, this tech scale-up is growing immensely and the load on the backend systems is continuously increasing. Because of this, the plan is to double in size this year!

Working here means being part of an international family with a real engineering culture. The organizational structure is flat, so you have a daily impact on architecture & design. Fast decision-making cycles, a lot of autonomy, direct communication with knowledgeable managers and cool colleagues is what you will find here.

In their true engineering culture, they believe that investing in their people is the key to success. That is why they have fantastic facilities and conditions: a beautiful office in Amsterdam, €5.000 training budget, 5% end-of-year bonus and many home working options. The USP: every 2 weeks multidisciplinary knowledge sharing sessions organized by the parent company, so that you are always aware of the latest tech and can learn in areas such as cloud-native, AI and sustainability.
