So you can really leave your mark here on the end result, on the systems, and put down something you can be proud of!

Because the products built here are used by millions of end-users (both B2C and B2B), technical issues such as scalability and improving performance are always important here.

This immediately exposes improvements and you can take this product to a higher level, continuously learn and NEVER have a boring day!

They also maintain an excellent work-life balance here.

Your role: Senior Java Developer Amsterdam

As a Senior Java Developer Amsterdam you get the opportunity to make a successful real-time risk platform even better by adding a completely new layer of different microservices. This makes the product a lot faster and more scalable! So you get the chance to choose the tech stack, design, and build different microservices from scratch! You are therefore responsible for the entire development life-cycle and can therefore step in at a time where you can make an impact for years to come. You built it, you run it!

You will work in a self-managing and autonomous team and work close to the product, so that you play a crucial role within the organization. So there’s plenty of room for the team to experiment and come up with suggestions and improvements for the product! Moreover, they are also working on other technical and complex challenges. Think of migrating to the Azure cloud or converting batch processing to real-time processing. There are still plenty of challenges ahead for the coming years and that is why people will continue to work here for many years. In short: you can learn a lot and invest a lot in personal growth and technical deepening.
