Your Role

As a Backend Software Engineer,

  • You are a key member of a cross-functional team and responsible for providing the backend functionality of a feature or initiative. You turn functional challenges and acceptance criteria into skilfully crafted and easy maintainable application code.
  • You use your experience to pinpoint bugs, bad coding patterns, identify risks and come up with potential solutions.
  • Once you get used to the Teamleader way of doing things, you make suggestions to improve the process and code quality.
  • You participate in technical discussions, both within your team as well as with other teams to come up with solutions for common problems.
  • You coach more junior developers through pair programming sessions, code reviews... or just by asking them the right questions.
  • You maintain a critical eye towards potential API improvements.
  • You monitor the build and deploy pipeline to make sure your team's work ends up in our customers' hands swiftly and adequately

Functie eisen

Who you are

  • This position is available for junior and experienced contributors. Ideally, you have a couple of years of experience as a software developer, and you have been working in multi-team organisations and on larger software systems. If you would join us as a junior developer, we take it upon us to support you in your growth path becoming a software engineering professional.
  • Strong bonus points: experience in SaaS product development, experience in cloud platforms (we run on AWS), more specifically cloud-native orchestration frameworks (Kubernetes, Nomad…)
  • You have good communication skills and consider yourself to be a team player.
  • You are not afraid to speak your mind strongly and convincingly to get your point across.
  • You aspire technical excellence but are able to balance this with pragmatic reasoning.
  • You are able to express yourself fluently and friendly in English, spoken and written.

Who we are and how we roll:

  • Our model of operations is to build long-lasting cross-functional feature teams consisting of a product owner, UX designer, and multiple back- and frontend engineers working in tandem on a specific feature domain. Mid 2021, we have 4 of these teams, and we are looking to grow that towards 6 by the end of the year. Our main codebase is PHP (with Slim) for most of our backend development, and React (using our own design library Ahoy!) on the frontend, and Concourse for CI. But that’s a huge oversimplification for a sophisticated, DDD- and Command Pattern-centric application stack with dozens of components. Plus, we are actively transitioning to a polyglot stack.
  • We do Continuous Deploys, sometimes +10 times per day, including during peak business hours thanks to our clever build and deploy pipeline and a modern runtime architecture using Kubernetes.
  • When we deploy, we create impact for our +12K customers with many more users. So we spend a good portion of our time doing PR reviews and facilitating the flow around it. On average, we deliver about 60% of new work during each sprint, 30% refactors and 10% bug fixes / support. These metrics are monitored by the teams, not by the management.
