Kotlin developer

Job description

Hoofddorp - We are developing new features and maintaining applications for our customer care centers in the Netherlands and in Belgium.


What you will be doing

These applications are used by our customer care agents to service our customers. You will mainly be working on our new delivery complaint service for our new subscription landscape. We do try to avoid building new features on our legacy applications, but occasionally it can be the case that you will need to help out with development for some of these applications.

You will work closely with the whole team, but especially with our backend developers. Together we are responsible for developing the best possible solution for our contact centers and other stakeholders.


About the team

You will be part of our Consumer Services Area, consisting of seven DevOps IT teams who are building and running the environment to service our customers for all DPG Media Brands. Our services impact millions of readers/viewers in The Netherlands and Belgium. The team you’ll be working in is responsible for the ‘’omni channels’’. The team consists of developers, application specialists, business analysts, QA engineer, a product owner and a scrum master.

We offer

  • An experience-based salary.
  • 36-hour workweek.
  • 12% personal choice budget (of which 8% is holiday allowance).
  • Participation in the profit sharing arrangement.
  • Personal development opportunities such as education, training and certificates.
  • Working with the latest stack.
  • Knowledge sharing from our tech colleagues.


Even more reasons to work at DPG Media

At DPG Media, we work for more than 90 strong news brands, magazines, television shows, radio stations, and online services such as Qmusic, NU.nl, Tweakers, Libelle, and VTM. Although we look like a media group, we are really a tech company. We get digital transformation done.

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. A great bunch of smart colleagues awaits you and are eager for you to join the team, whether that be a project team, a pub quiz team, or a sports team.
