Bol.com is the largest online shopping platform in the Netherlands and Belgium. The code of our software engineers offers our 8 million customers over 15 million products and an inspiring and personal shopping experience. Luckily technology and innovation creates the culture of bol.com and tech runs through the veins of all bol.com’ers.
Tech and business work closely together
Because of our complex and fast- paced environment, we can’t work with one-size-fits-all solutions. Every piece of code has impact on our customers and partners.
Tech contributes to the whole customer journey
Are you looking for a gift for your mom, friend or yourself? Bol.com is happy to help you to make the right choice. We offer a full range of 15 million different articles.
Although Java is our native language, we are open to other solutions and technologies. We have the guts to work on our own projects and use the right technology (whatever it is) for what we want to accomplish (whatever it is). We believe in continuous improvement. In our 18 years of existing we’ve grown massively and we find it important to maintain the quality of our codebase.
We prefer working with open sources technologies, as we build almost everything ourselves. But also because we want to contribute to the tech community.
Java, Kotlin, Golang, Hadoop, angular, react, mongodb, elasticsearch, cucumber, postgresql, tomcat, Spring (boot), rundeck, docker, Google cloud platform and many more…
