Job description

Our partner in Belgium is known for its human-centric transformation management software targeted to forward-thinking organizations. Their SaaS platform allows companies to leverage day-by-day knowledge in interpersonal networks and behaviour. It guides employees through business transformation and stimulates action on the right time in order to better contribute to the company goals and personal development goals.

We’re looking for a Backend Developer to join our team in rolling out a brand new SaaS product that will support companies managing digital transformation.
This role will require the focus and commitment of a person that is energized by building a scalable, data-driven solution. Your passion for cutting edge technology will be equal to a proven ability to deliver.

Your profile

To be successful in this function, we have the following profile in mind:

  • You’re a tech person: you have a love for coding, which was only further encouraged during your studies (IT degree or self-education) and reconfirmed in work experience;
  • You are able to write solid code using Typescript and Node.js and have an interest or experience with LoopBack or Express. Additional skills like Python and/or PHP (Laravel) knowledge put you in a front seat!
  • You have an active interest in cloud-based solutions and modern DevOps techniques as this is our way forward;
  • You’re pragmatic: you are target orientated and can work independently;
  • You have previously worked in an environment where best practices like CI/CD, unit testing and automated QA testing were in use;
  • You love working with a roadmap and releases because they’re proof of how well you’re doing. You do everything within your power to get the job done;
  • You are a communicator: you value two-way communication and want to understand underlying business needs. Good English communication skills are a necessity.

Your responsibilities

As Backend Developer you will:

  • work on our backend codebase which will be implemented as a number of smaller (micro)services using NodeJS and serverless components;
  • be able to use your experience taking ownership of considerable parts of the stack having the responsibility to write code, write automated tests, and deploy to testing and production environments. As if this would not offer you enough variation, you might be involved in some technical analysis as well.
  • experience and contribute to the drive of a startup team and the professional agile work organization of an established company, using the Kanban approach and tools;
  • last but not least, enjoy closely working with our CTO and the rest of the team that we are putting together.

What we offer

  • An awesome, dynamic team is waiting for you! You will never get bored! We move fast like a “start-up” but have the professionalism of a billion euro company. We are part of the biggest startup ecosystem in Belgium. This means a great start-up atmosphere and an exciting fast-growing environment with lots of perspectives and opportunities to grow personally and professionally
  • The opportunity to carve your own signature into our growth story
  • A company culture that likes to work and play hard. We like to have fun. There is no sense coming to a job every day if you don’t like the people you work with
  • The experience you bring and your motivation are crucial to us
