People who know exactly what they’re doing. People who want to be able to make a difference being a top-notch developer. Who love to think of ways to build new functionalities or how to improve technology and usability. And most of all, how to use the right tools in line with performance and feasibility.

As this role will have a steering impact, you have a natural way of connecting people to get the best results possible. You don’t believe in telling people what to do, rather you prefer them telling you what they have achieved. Details are important to you. Nevertheless, you can also easily zoom out and operate from the ‘bigger-picture’ standpoint. As an independent personality, you have a proactive attitude to tackle what needs to be changed or adjusted to reach the best possible outcome for our software solutions.
