As an IT Young Professional, you’ll be a full member of one of the 100+ scrum teams at bol.com. Most of the time you’ll be the only Young Professional in your team – which means you’ll learn a lot from the medior and senior software engineers around you. And your buddy (a Young Professional from another team) will make sure you’ll find your way at bol.com.
5 things we bet you didn’t know yet
The IT Young Professional program will last 2 years. You’ll join 2 scrum teams, so after one year or so you’ll switch teams – we’ll encourage you to even switch domains at that time, so you will dive into a whole other part of the company.
80% of your time (4 days a week) you’ll be kicking ass in your scrum team. 20% of your time (1 day a week) is free to be spent on your personal development. This is unique for everyone, so each Young Professional’s journey will be different.
One day a week you’ll develop yourself on a personal level – meaning working on your soft skills and technical skills.
The Young Professional (YP) program is not only being followed by enthusiastic YP’s – but also created by them. You can add value to one of the – so called – ‘building blocks’. See any improvements for the onboarding at bol.com? Or aiming for better communication between teams? Go ahead!
The possibilities are endless. Many Young Professionals at bol.com are involved in side projects with other teams or together with other Young Professionals. All of these projects are self-started. No one will tell you what to do – so we expect you to be an initiator at heart.

Do I get paid less, because of the 20% rule?
Nope, you’ll get a full salary. Ka-ching!
I would like to apply. How does it work?
First of all, you’ll submit your application. Our beloved recruiter Veronique will screen your CV. Then she will call you, to informally check if there’s a match. In preparations of meeting face to face, you’ll take two tests: an online HR assessment and a technical case.
Then we’ll meet at the bol.com headquarters. You’ll have your first interview in which your HR assessment will be discussed shortly. Afterwards, you’ll do a business case with one of the young professionals and at last, your technical assessment will be discussed during your second interview.
The interview day is usually enough to see if it’s a match. And if you agree… well, it’s the beautiful beginning of your career at bol.com.
