  • be proactive in learning and preparation

You will work together with a disciplinary team of backend and frontend developers, product owners, test engineers and architects in an Agile environment working with Scrum. We like working autonomously as much as we can, which means you help decide what the right solutions are.

  • 36-hour workweek.
  • 12% personal choice budget (of which 8% is holiday allowance).
  • Participation in the profit sharing arrangement.

  • Knowledge sharing from our tech colleagues.

We offer a high-performing tech workplace where we treasure freedom, from how you find solutions to choosing your path. Feel free to be an entrepreneur, an apprentice, a team player, and, of course, to be you. We welcome everyone to apply, whatever your background may be.
