What do you do as Back-end Developer?

As Back-end Developer at Belsimpel, you develop and implement new and innovative features in our websites and back office systems. We develop and design everything ourselves, which leaves a lot of room for you to experiment with your own ideas. Our next web framework or warehouse management system might be based on your creative vision! Does the idea of improving our own CRM software, which is used by over a hundred customer support colleagues, spark your interest? Or do you believe you could make our WMS, which is used to process hundreds of thousands of orders, even more efficient? If so, you’ve come to the right place! Here at Belsimpel, you really make a difference.

Our team

Our developers are second to none. What we do is extremely complex; we are by no means system integrators. That is why our team is composed of a mix of intelligent colleagues who graduated recently and highly experienced developers who have been with us for years. Most of your colleagues have technical degrees and have turned their passion into a full-time career at Belsimpel.

Will you join our team? We love new colleagues! Your critical but respectful eye and spirit keep us alert so we can improve daily.

This is how we work

Our current team consists of about 50 developers who work on different projects in smaller teams. Besides our weekly general meetings in which we sketch the outlines of our projects, you attend team meetings to discuss the finer details of your current project(s). Meanwhile, you are in close contact with our business developers to translate issues from other departments within the organisation into excellent programming solutions.

Important decisions are made together by mutual agreement. Development is one of the core positions within Belsimpel and the most important driver of our growth performance as a company. There is no middle layer; Jeroen & Jeroen are present at all meetings concerning important decisions. No office politics, no project managers who don’t understand the business or technologies, no frustration.

You work on your own code independently, but you also work together a lot. Your fellow developers review your code and you review theirs. You are able to be critical, while maintaining a respectful attitude. This way, we keep up a high standard of work whilst picking up valuable knowledge along the way. We push several releases each day. Is your code going live? You are responsible for your own releases, but colleagues are always willing to help if something goes wrong. Constantly putting out your colleagues’ fires is not part of the job description.

Notice something that could be improved? We’re very open to change. Got an idea to make a piece of back-end code more efficient? We’re not afraid to throw out heritage code. Do you have ideas on improving the front-end? We’ll add your ideas to the a/b test queue.

We work with a variety of tools, including AWS, Trello, NGIX, PHP7 and Galero. You won’t be squinting at a 15”laptop screen. Instead, you have three displays and all the other necessary gear at your disposal to get some serious work done.

Who are you?

We are looking for bright and passionate colleagues.

If you are highly capable, you’ll master these in no time. If you are smart, critical yet respectful and enjoy creating complex systems that impact the user-experiences of hundreds of thousands of customers and a team of hundreds of colleagues, we are looking for you to join our team!
