Working at bol.com is hard work, but of course you get something in return!
Every day we want to be a little better. Every day we want to get closer to our goal: “Truly be the store of us all”. We can only be that if we bring out the best in each other and keep the energy high. And we totally understand that you want something in return.
Moving to the Netherlands is a big step and a big adventure. Understandably, this can be a bit scary. Therefore, bol.com wants to ensure that you make the best possible transition. We offer relocation assistance to the Netherlands from the moment you have the job. Together with EMG (relocation company) we will arrange the paperwork, a house, assistance with any questions, a visa, contact with the relevant embassy and everything else.
We hope in this way to help you (and your family) as much as possible, so you can focus on the really important things. Like packing your suitcase for this great adventure!
*Please note! Your health and that of our colleagues is the most important thing. We therefore follow the advice and guidelines of the RIVM and the government. Should there be another corona outbreak in the future, or is the country you are in locked down, we will look together at when and what is possible, while observing the rules

Leave & vacations
At bol.com we understand like no other that you have to take care of yourself first, then your environment and then bol.com. In that order. Therefore, everyone at bol.com receives 29 days of vacation. In addition, we have arrangements for maternity leave, Daddy Day, moving day, special leave and more. After all, you can’t work hard without recharging.
Regardless of the means of transportation, you will be reimbursed for travel expenses with us. Do you travel by car? Then there is room to park at our office, also for electric cars. Are you coming by bike? Then we are happy to motivate you with our bicycle plan.
When you start at bol.com, in addition to your welcome package, you get the option of a telephone. Everyone receives a laptop. And possibly you will receive a lease car, if this is necessary for the performance of your job.
In addition to the commuting arrangements, you will receive additional non-contributory insurance, 8% vacation pay and a payment from bol.com for part of the basic pension and any top-up scheme.
In addition, with our internal development platform (Studybol) we offer training and courses that motivate and connect. In this way, your development does not have to stand still.
As icing on the cake, we always provide good, healthy, local and especially tasty food. Because good food makes bol.com employees happy! Our colleagues in catering make it easy for you to enjoy a fresh lunch in our restaurant every day. We take everyone’s wishes into account and serve varying dishes.
You will also find fresh fruit in each department, which you can just grab. Do you have a busy day and therefore feel like a quick bite? That is possible with our to-go assortment or get it from our own AH to-go.
In addition to salary, we reward both your personal performance and the performance of bol.com in an annual bonus. This bonus is calculated at the end of the year and we end it with a fun party!
The new flexible working
At bol.com we create together a working environment that suits the needs of yourself, your team and bol.com. It is a flexible work culture, so that we continue to meet each other. In this, we find a balance between organizational and individual needs. Together with your team you look at what does and does not work for you. Not only does this ensure that we can retain our innovative power, but everyone also gets the freedom to arrange their week as they see fit. In this way, we bring together the best of both worlds.
Your pension is completely arranged by bol.com. You can determine yourself how to deal with this. You will receive more information about this when you sign your contract. In addition, bol.com pays part of the basic pension and any top-up scheme. Would you like to know more about this? Ask your recruiter during your application.
The culture and the office
Our colleagues work hard to make the daily lives of our customers easier and more fun. But of course, we do this in an inspiring and creative environment!
Each floor on the bol.com campus has its own theme, with a “living room” to catch up with colleagues. The work floors are open and light spaces, where you can easily spar with colleagues. If you prefer to work alone for a while, we have several quiet areas, such as in our library. The meeting rooms also have specific names. So you can walk from the Netherlands to Belgium in three steps. Or first you sit in the Barbie House and then you find yourself in the floated market.
Just recharge your batteries…
Of course we do everything to ensure that you can work optimally. That’s why we give you the space to recharge your batteries. At bol.com you can do that in various ways, such as in the massage chairs. Would you rather get some fresh air and new energy? Then take one of the walking paths through our garden. Here you will also find a small soccer field, swing and table tennis table. Would you rather work up a sweat? Then sign up for the various sports classes. Or join the various clubs organized by bol.comers!
For some, relaxation is also a social event. Of course, this is not to be left out! Because you can relax after a busy working week at the weekly Wednesday and Friday afternoon drinks in our own bol.com bar. Don’t forget our annual summer and Christmas parties. And there is also room for teams to organize outings. Make music together, go bowling or hackathoning with 300 colleagues. Everything is possible! Even an annual bol.com ski trip!
