Your employer: Builds highly successful B2C platform used by millions of people!

This medium-sized tech company in Amsterdam is building a highly successful B2C platform that is used by millions of people. In fact, with millions of unique users per month, this widely used platform is very tangible and even recognized by friends and family. That’s an impact! The company is small enough to know everyone, but the impact is huge. So as an individual contributor you can still make enough impact on the product and take it to the next level!

You will work in an experienced team of high-caliber Software Engineers who are champions in building and processing highly scalable systems. This gives you the opportunity to not only work with them, but also to spar and learn from them. The success mainly stems from the close collaboration of both business and tech. You are responsible for the entire software development lifecycle: from designing to building, to release and monitoring. You build it, you run it!

People here attach great importance to both personal and professional development. For example, they organize weekly knowledge-sharing sessions, but they also offer an individual training budget and there is room to go to conferences. This ensures that you become the best version of yourself. The sky’s the limit. Moreover, the staff is their most important asset. To demonstrate this, they offer an excellent work-life balance and secondary conditions. You immediately receive a permanent contract, you share in the profit (10% annual bonus), you receive a training budget and you only have to be in the office for 1 or 2 days! So you can focus on what you like best: building software.

Your role: Senior Scala Developer Amsterdam

As a Senior Scala Developer Amsterdam you can choose from backend/platform work or product development.

This variation allows people to learn a lot more, work longer here and never get bored.

You get the chance to start working professionally with Scala. Do you have no professional experience with this yet, but would you like to learn this? No problem! You will have the unique opportunity to learn this from your experienced and passionate colleagues and to work with it professionally.

Career opportunities
