How do you make our customers happy?
With ~9 million customers, 30 million monthly visits and about 16 million products on display, bol.com is the most successful online retail platform in The Netherlands and Belgium. And by ‘platform’, we really mean ‘platform’: some 24.000 external partners add their products to our enticing mix. Data-driven, adventurous (mistakes are allowed, as long as learnings are shared) and boldly going where no online retailer has gone before, we want to deliver on our promise to make life easier and more fun for all our customers. And that is exactly what our 400 IT-professionals (25% internationals) who comprise 70+ autonomous Scrum teams, do on a daily basis. Join in?
Your responsibilities as a Software Engineer
- Develop clean and high-performance code for 9 million customers
- Make solutions infinitely scalable and future proof

- Spot opportunities, translate these into compelling proofs of concepts
As our Software Engineer you will be a (welcome!) addition to a Scrum team that works on expanding and improving our platform environment. Our business developers constantly think of new and exciting ways to improve the customer experience, and it’s up to you to guide them on a technical level, and to implement these new features. Don’t worry, you won’t have to do this alone. Your team members and peers are ready to help you make and own some truly awesome stuff.
Oh yeah, did we mention that everything you develop has to play nice with all other solutions AND be as scalable as the universe itself appears to be? Next to your team duties, you will join the discussion in the guild of the particular space you happen to find yourself in. We expect you to contribute by sharing your knowledge, perspective and way of working. Do you have a brilliant idea on how we can improve things here at bol.com? Do you want to adopt some tool or technology we never heard of? Feel free! That’s the beauty of being a Software Engineer at bol.com.

- Java (8!)
- Google Cloud stack
3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you
- Because you love Java and Java loves you back
- Because you take pride in writing high quality code
- Because you don’t shy away from courageous technical choices
- Because you want to stay in the safe zone and just keep doing what you do
- Because when things don’t work you get frustrated
- Because you’re the worst teammate in history; you don’t share. Ever
