About he role
From a back-end perspective, a cutting edge e-commerce platform is developed which enables the organisation to tailor the customer experience on the application by heavily focusing on personalization driven bij machine learning.
You are driven by business impact and consumer value instead of just cool tech, can effectively communicate about technical topics to your non-technical coworkers and are always eager to learn about all aspects of software, regardless of technology or part of the stack.
In our software engineer team we move very quick, we will iterate rapidly, and of course learn constantly.

Our culture

From monthly events such as our ugly Christmas jumper competition, office massages, and surprise pizza parties you’ll be working in an environment that values hard work, self-satisfaction, and happiness!
Best of all you have the opportunity to help shape our culture for the future. We have a multicultural environment where openness and diversity is encouraged – from new starters all the way to the CEO.
