How do you make our customers happy?
With over 8 million customers, 30 million monthly visits and roughly 15 million products on display, bol.com is the #1 online shopping platform in The Netherlands and Belgium. Data-driven, realistic (mistakes are fine, as long as learnings are shared) and boldly going where no online retailer has gone before, we want to deliver upon our promise to engage and inspire all of our customers. Sound like something worth going for? We offer IT talent the unique opportunity to become an all-round Software Engineer. When you join the IT Young Professional program, we’ll take you on an unforgettable 4-step, 2-year journey through an innovative IT landscape!
Your responsibilities to help us become the #1 shopping platform
As an IT Young Professional, you’ll be assigned to one of our autonomous scrum teams. Each team is responsible for an individual aspect of our platform. Here, you will further develop and improve your team’s specific application (microservices). And the pace is fast; you can develop and go live with a user story in your first week! So your actions will have an immediate impact on customers and third party sellers. After the first year, you’ll switch to a different scrum team to maximize the learning experience. The program gives you a unique opportunity to build software using your own skills and creativity. You’ll quickly discover the ins and outs of modern tooling, while fixing real world problems. Together with your colleagues – people that share technological insights, ambitions and challenges continuously – you are a driver of change. And you’re allowed to make mistakes as long as you learn from them. We love technology and we love our work, but we’re not infallible. In our world, we take risks, move fast and learn quickly.
3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you
- Because you have a relevant Bachelor’s or Master’s degree (Computer Science, Software Engineering etc.) with up to 1 year professional working experience
- Because you are a true team-player who can work in sync with the business
- Because you are a born coder, you just have to discover what you want to code exactly
- Because you know just about everything already; you’re done learning!
- Because you don’t believe open source (and giving back to the community) is the future
- Because you won’t (ever!) set foot in our games room or on our soccer field
