Where would we be without a passion for software development? We would also like to see this passion in you and we would like you to share it with your colleagues. You're the type that colleagues turn to to ask if you can watch a weird bug or if they get stuck in a code review. If a technical choice has to be made, you have your opinion ready and you are not afraid to make the decision. Together with the Product Owner you are the driving force in your team. You keep focus on the goal and together with your team you determine the journey towards it and make adjustments where necessary. Open and transparent, those are the most important qualities we want to see in you. In addition, you breathe quality and you stand behind your technical skills and you know how to combine this perfectly with a pragmatic mentality.

  • At least eight years of experience as a Software Developer or Software Engineer, preferably with Java and / or JavaScript
