We are an expert in our field and proud of our culture where innovation, ownership, a can-do mentality and team play add to the equation.


In order to continue on our growth path, we are currently recruiting a Backend Developer based at our Utrecht office.


What will you be doing? 


As a Backend Developer, you are going to help innovate the micro services back end of our fast-paced and growing international SaaS company. You will be analysing requirements and developing new features for our SaaS product, all while making sure the code is in line with coding standards.


Our Platform is currently built on C# and .Net on Azure Service Fabric and MongoDB. At the moment, we are evaluating the granularity and efficiency of our codebase to be able to better support multi-user actions and experiences. Your main focus will be on improving the existing system by researching new technologies and techniques, maintaining our back end, creating new functionalities and supporting the rest of the team. In addition, you will support our customers when they are facing complicated technical issues on their environments.

We love working Agile and hope you do too. It is important to us that every member of the team does most of what they love, thus being able to contribute greatly to our solution, team, and company.
