Wanted: Back-end Developer

Do you enjoy building infinitely scaling back-end solutions? Would you like to build using microservices? Do you want to work on your ambitions in an environment in which you gain a lot of confidence? Then we might just be looking for you!

Blue Billywig is a dynamic organisation to work for with an enthusiastic & experienced product development team. The biggest thing our team has in common is that we love working together to improve our Online Video Platform.

Over the last few years we have strived to innovate faster & improve the quality of our products, but we’re convinced we’re just getting started. That’s where you come in.

What you will do

You’ll be working as a developer within our experienced scrum team to improve our current back-end and to help us to innovate. The solutions you build together with the team are stable, scalable and well thought out. In your role within Blue Billywig you are fully responsible for devising and building your solutions, but at the same time you spar with colleagues and receive help from experienced developers.

Our tech stack is constantly evolving, but includes: Angular 11+, Github (actions), Jest, VUE.js, PHP, Node.js, SOLR, MySQL, Redis and Lambda which we run at AWS.

Who you are

We don’t like labeling people and will gladly adjust your responsibilities to your ambitions and skill-set. Together, we’ll decide how you will perform best in this role. Do you recognise yourself in several of the following points?

  • You describe yourself as a back-end developer, but you understand that synergy between front- and back-end is a must;
  • You are looking for opportunities to develop further;
  • You like to bring complex challenges back to the core;
  • You have several years of experience with development, preferably in the cloud;
  • You operate at a higher education level both professionally and intellectually;
    (not necessarily a degree);
  • You have a passion for your profession and a sense of responsibility;
  • You live in the Netherlands and speak fluent English and/or Dutch.

What we offer

  • An accessible, non-hierarchical organisation without all the bureaucracy;
  • An experienced product team that wants to help you become even better;
  • The invincible feeling of being part of a successful team and growing international organisation;
  • A good pay-check including a very good pension plan;
  • Attention to your career and personal development;
  • Cool parties and activities the year round;
    (Yearly ski-trip, parties, team events but also competing in sporting events together)
  • Our caterer John will provide you with fresh food and fruit on a daily base;
  • And of course a mobile phone and laptop (Macbook Pro & iPhone).

… and much more--We’ll gladly tell you all about it during your first interview.

Who we are

Blue Billywig was founded in 2006 with the idea that the entire video publication process should be easier to manage and perform better. Our Online Video Platform allows customers to create, manage, and customise their own video content in-house. We enable our clients to reach their customers more effectively by personalizing their videos with interactivity.

Since 2006, we’ve grown into a video solutions market leader, which has resulted in a long list of customers, ranging from Ahold to AJAX and Nespresso to Intergamma. We’ve branched out to different markets and countries, and we’re proud to have added English, Irish, and German names to the list--amongst which are some of the biggest news sites in their markets.

Are you the technical back-end developer we're looking for? Let us know! You can send your resume and motivation to to the attention of Erik Pluijmen.
