  • You won’t be working on > You are not a typical team manager. This means that the commercial performance of your team is not your final responsibility. Also, you do not have to take any official HR tasks such as assessments or talks of employment conditions.

How our development team works

Cross-functional, agile & user-centric work are our fixed pillars, though the tools change often. To give you an idea of ​​the current focus and working method of our development team, the tools and frameworks du jour are:

  • FrontEnd: ES6 / React
  • Server-side: NodeJS / IAAS / Netlify
  • Workflow: Webpack / Docker / GIT
  • Testing: Jest / Cypress

What we have to offer

  • Our base: We are a fully self-owned and independent agency which keeps our politics to the bare minimum, our focus human and our decisions sane
  • Our portfolio: We work for a wide range of ambitious clients, from start-ups to big players. Always with the aim to positively impact their business through designing and developing digital products and services that offer maximum user experience
  • Our conditions: We offer a more than market-based salary and a good profit sharing. Our secondary conditions are very good for each other: from pension scheme to supplementary insurance and paternity leave, we take our employership very seriously
  • Our day to day: We have a fairly awesome workspace right on the IJ-river (the view is quite something), a few minutes from Amsterdam Central Station. And most importantly: a fun, talented and energetic team of about 40 colleagues
