• Utrecht
Welcome and congratulations for clicking on this! (^.^)

If you’re sitting comfortably, let me paint a picture for you: imagine waking up excited every morning to go to the office. Sounds far-fetched, right? Well not anymore. Not when it is a cool, modern office, in an open-space with a bunch of cool dudes and dudettes from all over the world, doing their magic✨to deliver software applications. As a collective, you work for an enterprise DevOps platform adopted by the largest and most demanding companies in the world, providing them with the intelligence, automation and control they need to deliver software faster and with less risk. You must know you will be a part of a team that includes some of the early DevOps visionaries and leaders who literally wrote the book on Continuous Delivery. 

Don’t get me wrong, your colleagues are a cocktail of nationalities, who work hard, but party harder, and who will most likely adopt you in their shenanigans as well. What else is fun about the team and the company? Read until the end. 

What will your role in all this be, you ask? 
You would join the release orchestration product development team. You will plan, design, develop and test new features of the flagship release orchestration product. But come on, you already have that under your belt. And I’m sure you will also be excited to know you will do that as a member of the Scrum team, focusing on developing software used for building and delivering high quality enterprise products in a parallel development environment. 

“Yes, yes” you must say, “but what about the actual responsibilities?”

  • You’re planning, designing, implementing and testing new product features like a boss;👑
  • You perform design, development and support of existing and new products as if you were born to do it;
  • You understand product requirements in order to design new features, because duuh… 😑 (no, this job description was not provided by Captain Obvious even if it may seem so);
  • You help support production code and systems, because you’re cool like that; 😎
  • You participate in design discussions and code reviews (trust me, those won’t be meetings that could have been E-mails);😴
  • You interact with the internal customers, because you’re Batman, and you can be a people person as well as a badass. 🦇
  • You will report to the Chapter Lead. 

OK. I can do all that!” I hear you say. Awesome sauce. “What do I need to have to apply?” 

  • A must is a minimum of 10 years of professional Java software development; 😍
  • A proven ability to design and develop complex applications, a self-starter;

  • Computer Science – Eng. University diploma or B.S. with 5-6 years of work experience or M.S. in Computer Science with 3-4 years of experience preferred but equivalent experience/education is acceptable;

Sounds great so far, doesn’t it? Well, if you read so far (you get a cookie) but you also get to know what’s in it for you:

  • Foosball? Or Never-Have-I-Ever in the breaks? I know it’s a drinking game but I already warned you your team is a bunch of party animals; 
  • A sweet garden with a swing in it if you feel the need to go cry somewhere and feel cradled by the sweet release of… gravity? I don’t know, man. I don’t know. 
  • Surinamese food personally delivered by the chef’s son, a cool dude who is in the same building and also helps bring in new awesome people like you to the team.
