Within this process, we’re phasing out some of our legacy systems and rebuilding them in a modern microservice-architecture on basis of Lagom.

  • Take an important place in the future capabilities of the business, by closely working together with key stakeholders

  • Further improve our way of working with experience you have in your agile way of working and strong focus on automation
  • Contribute to architectural direction and changes
  • Help us factor (parts) out, but also support our current production systems running (for instance) on Solidus

  • Understand and can relate to our business and are able to empathise with our (online) customers
  • Are a fast learner, seeking constant self-improvement
  • Love experimenting with cutting edge technologies and see how these would fit into our technology stack
  • Have a sense of pragmatism, not afraid to code your way out of a challenge

Your skills...

  • Prove-able experience with Scala (1 to 2 years), along with other common libraries such as Akka and Akka Streams
  • A knack for writing clean, readable Scala code
  • Able to implement automated testing platforms, unit and integration tests (Scala tests, CircleCI/Travis, continuous deployment)
  • Experience with an Agile / scrum environment


  • The chance to be part of an ambitious international team
  • The opportunity to push the boundaries for our international footprint
  • Personal development and lots of variety in your work
  • A broad scope of responsibilities
