Full Stack Developer

Job description

Are you ready to join the fastest growing tech company in The Netherlands? With a growth percentage of a staggering 7628% over the past 4 years we are confident in using that title. As our future full stack developer, you will be critical for our growth as a business. Envision working in one of the nicest offices in Amsterdam located on the Herengracht with a high performing international team and a boat waiting on the waterfront. We work in an environment which is professional but fun and very rewarding (again, we have a boat!). Our mantra is: you look after us, we look after you.


Does this sound like you?

You are someone who is never done discovering new things because you are sure there is always more to learn. You have lots of experience working on front-end projects, but know your way around the backend too. One of your beliefs is that you'll trust something works after it passes the appropriate tests. You are always looking for what works best by setting up A/B tests or writing unit tests (or interested in learning this and proposing a methodology to try out). If something ends up going wrong, you are not afraid to own up to your part in it.


"Being a full stack developer in a smaller company is the perfect way to learn and see the impact of your work. In big companies, often you just get to see a small part of the code, but in small companies, you get to see everything."

Georgios Karatzas, lead developer


What you'll actually do...

You'll be mainly working on the frontend (70%) helping us implement new designs for all of our brands, on all types of devices. You'll work alongside Georgios to test his existing code and anything new that gets built. We'd love for you to write unit tests (PHP and Javascript) and think of an A/B testing strategy. Also, you will be part of changing the architecture from four different applications into one application with four child applications. Among many more exciting things that are going on in our business!

Our mission is to make millions of people's lives happier through the gift of experiences. The goal is ambitious; by 2022 we want to reach annual revenue of 100 million euros. We are growing quickly, and we need your help to keep that trend going.

  • The chance to create a significant and long-lasting impact on the business.

Job requirements

What we really need from you…

  • You have at least three years of experience with front-end projects
  • You know PHP and Javascript like no other (except maybe Georgios, your future colleague. Really, ask him anything…)
