Fullstack Developer Scala

Job description

Our Digital team is looking for an enthusiastic fullstack developer to join us! Are you a passionate developer who strives for quality and clean code? Are you a quick learner who values your personal development by keeping up-to-date by reading books, tutorials, blogs and joining meetups? Then we are looking for you! Join us if you want to be proud of your work, make an impact and recognize the goal of Vandebron as being in line with your own values.

Vandebron is growing fast and we are rapidly extending our portfolio. Besides providing innovative solutions for our customers, we are also enhancing our core operations as an energy supplier on the Dutch energy grid. This entails a platform that has complex integrations with market parties such as TenneT and financial exchanges. Vandebron is using the latest technologies to ensure a competitive package.

We are looking for a full stack developer that can contribute to this ambition. All Vandebron developers have a full stack mindset, and for this specific position we would value proven expertise in building UIs (with React and preferably TypeScript) and microservices (preferably in Scala). Any other proven experience in functional programming (e.g. Kotlin, Clojure, Java 8+) or frontend libraries (e.g. Angular, Vue) is a plus. You join a small team focused on ‘energy trading’ (5 colleagues, including you!), but will be part of a bigger community of software engineers (30+ colleagues).

Vandebron is a flat organization so you will be able to get in direct contact with the business and you will be responsible for gathering requirements and designs and implementing the solution. We follow agile development practices, we have a daily stand-up, we demo our work regularly and we do team retrospective to constantly improve our development process.

  • You are a quick learner who values personal development by keeping up-to-date by reading books, tutorials, blogs and joining meetups;
  • You are a passionate developer and you motivate the developers around you (by sharing your knowledge and your enthusiasm for technologies);

  • You are familiar with Docker

Our Way

At Vandebron we strongly believe in the agile principles. We strive to follow the manifesto and we use Scrum as a structured way to plan and adapt our development. Always with a strong focus on customer value. We believe in quality and clean code and our speed is based on releasing the smartest MVP rather than compromising the quality of our work. We have 2 week sprints and we manage to continuously deliver value for Vandebron. We move fast and we want our improvements to be in production even before our sprint is finished. We make it possible for Vandebron to offer new services online, like our new ‘smart energy platform’ where we use blockchain technology to develop ‘smart charging’ propositions which are used to speed up the transition to sustainable energy by balancing the energy grid. Also, we offer all our services via a state of the art ecosystem where web (React.js) and app (React native) play an important role and while disrupting our market. Of course we are making sure that our (internal/external) processes, which rely heavily on IT (cloud) systems, remain speedy and flexible. We love creativity, and we're more than happy to give our developers the freedom to express themselves, growing both personally and professionally in a wonderful working environment.
