Job description

You will work in a small, dedicated team designing and implementing data structures, algorithms, interactive visualizations and user interfaces to share these insights with clients via web applications and APIs. You build these features end-to-end; you work on databases, application logic and user interfaces. Core areas you will work on as a full stack developer:

* Design, implement, test and deploy our web applications that offer actionable information about the health and performance of industrial machines
* Improve our web applications for IoT device fleet monitoring and advanced data analysis
* Further develop and scale our infrastructure and backend systems
* Gather requirements from different stakeholders
* Build functional APIs to expose our services
* Code reviews, continuous integration, automation and daily deployments

How we work

The development team uses its own simple, practical and functional methodology, allowing you to fully focus on software engineering without having to switch tasks. You will work based on the principle of freedom and responsibility. We take pride in combining professionalism, trust and very few meetings.

The development team

The software engineering team currently consists of 11 developers (5 experienced seniors, the others juniors or mediors) working on a large architecture covering a wide domain, from signal processing on our edge devices through dashboarding for different user groups. Continuous improvement and daily deployments are at the heart of the high level of quality we deliver. The applications & integrations team develops new features that provide insight into the health and performance of our customers' industrial machines, as well as supporting our partners in monitoring their fleet of IoT devices.

Tech stack

Since we work on cutting-edge technology, we use an up-to-date stack:
* Python
* Flask
* Angular
* Terraform
* The team prefers to use Linux distributions for their development environments


"When I joined the company as one of the earliest employees four years ago, we brought the minimum viable product to market in less than a year, and since then we've continuously improved and professionalized. We're in a brand-new phase every year; it's impossible to grow bored. And of course, I also like that we're continuously winning. We're a trusted industry partner now, with tangible success." - Bart Römgens, lead software engineer Applications & Integrations

The applications & integrations team is looking for a high-performing full stack developer to help us present our enormous amounts of sensor data to our clients in a fast, consistent, intuitive way and to help us reduce the carbon footprint of industrial machines (responsible for more than 40% of global electricity consumption) by improving our dedicated energy monitor.

For whom?
