You will be working in an international team, currently based in the Netherlands (Almere), Spain (Malaga) and Romania (Cluj Napoca). You do a lot of team work online, but you also shouldn’t mind to occasionally travel to any of our locations, as we believe a team can work better when we can also occasionally spend some personal time together. We currently use a mix of Scrum and Kanban to determine our team backlog and to track the various tasks to both operate our current services and implement new ones. You will determine the priorities and contents of this roadmap, as well as perform actual tasks, or help others to do so. You will help the team and the company improve by continuously learning, from external sources, from each other, from postmortems, etc.

  • Working together with people from numerous different backgrounds, located in different countries, who have different ways of working;
  • Getting energy from teaching others new things, and help them grow;
  • Feeling comfortable working in a self-steering environment where you are expected to make your own decisions driving the company’s purpose;
