Passionate about solving problems: the job

As an IT professional, you want to work on innovations that matter. At Planon, you can. Our mission is to be the best by delivering in-house software solutions that enable our clients to effectively solve their facility management and real estate challenges. 


We need you to configure and develop our web-based enterprise product Planon Essentials Edition, together with members of your multidisciplinary scrum team. We’ll challenge you every step of the way: world-famous brands, innovative products and amazing career opportunities are all part of the job.


Planon never settles for less, so we keep you up-to-date on the latest trends and big investment topics for the coming years, including cloud, mobile, IoT and analytics. 


As a Solution Developer, you add value in many ways by:

  • Successfully configuring the back-end for our software solution Planon Essentials Edition;
  • Translating specific requests from our Product Management into software solutions that can generally be used for all clients;
  • Programming with Java, Junit, JavaScript, Angular JS, Apache Cordova, Gradle, JBoss, Tomcat, Oracle and MS SQL;
  • Collaborating on our software solutions with your colleagues from our offices in Duisburg, India and the Netherlands.

Where would we be without a passion for software development? That’s why we’d like you to be passionate about it too, and keen to share it with your colleagues. You are driven to make things happen instead of waiting for something to happen – even when it’s never been done before. Being open and transparent are key traits we want to see in you. In addition, you live and breathe quality and engineering principles, and you know how to balance this perfectly with a pragmatic mindset.


Our ideal candidate ticks all the following boxes:

  • A technical education in Informatics or a related technical field
  • At least 1 year of relevant work experience
  • Experiences in working with technical notations (XML, JSON, CSV), version control (GIT), Java, relational databases (MSSQL, Oracle)
  • Excellent speaking and writing skills in German and English
  • The ambition to help us maintain our position as worldwide market leader

We offer

Our Product Department consists of 170 outstanding colleagues that inspire each other every single day. Even though the finish may be breathtaking, we believe the journey creates the best memories and learning moments. Outside your comfort zone is where the magic happens. How much fun is that? We celebrate our success in many ways – from sharing compliments and large team events to spare time initiatives that help our people become more than just employees.


We are large enough to offer exciting career opportunities and small enough to recognize your individual contribution. You’re the director of your own career.


This is how we improve your daily business:

  • Challenging projects with world-leading clients, both national and international
  • Our Agile Performance Management for your individual career planning
  • Creating ideas that genuinely add value for our clients
