To reach this end-in-mind we’re looking for amazing people who live to make a difference!  Therefore, we are searching for smart developers who strive to create success over and over again. Developers who make it their mission to constantly optimize the development of features, improve used technology and the deployment of right tooling. Developers who join our team effort in advising our clients on improving performance and scalability.

Your day-to-day activities

You will primarily be responsible for the back-end development of our projects. However, together with the development team you will be responsible for the full process of web development; from concept and design to the actual development, testing and maintenance. Delivering quality is your main priority!  To be successful and optimize your learning curve, our intern supervisor will provide you sufficient and substantive support.

In case of problems, we expect you to be able to effectively debug the code of the project in order to get to the core of the problem easily
  • You are able to test your developed work and provide this in the right (test)environment. Furthermore, you’re capable of providing required documentation in which you will be able to explain your design and its functionalities.

This is what we expect from you…

  • You’re able to design from scratch. However, you also know where to find existing tooling or sources, which make your work easier
  • You like to build cool new things, but at the same time you strive to not reinvent the wheel
  • You love to work simultaneously on several (short-term) projects

  • Demonstrable knowledge of open source frameworks such as Symfony / Flint / Laravel / Magento / Drupal 8, Strong analytical and problem solving skills

Personality is our top priority!

Besides abovementioned required skillset, personality is just as important to us. We love to socialize, but when there is work to be done, we go the extra mile! Our work is a joint effort of a multidisciplinary team in which every individual brings crucial & valuable expertise to the table. Therefore, we strive to constantly bring out the best in each other. It may seem a bit crazy to want to realize several projects at the same time. But when success is created, it gives an amazing feeling! And that’s exactly why we work so hard!
