WMS Developer The IQ behind the warehousing brain

Utrecht
Bachelor / Master
Go straight to:

How do you make our customers happy?

In 2017 bol.com opened one of the most sustainable, highly automated and largest fulfilment centers in the Netherlands. The brain is a Hardis warehouse management system (Reflex). This WMS is incredibly powerful, but it needs to be tailored to bol.com’s business requirements so that our employees and, more importantly, 8 million customers are catered to flawlessly. Now and in the future, because the optimum product flow can change at any time. Do you have the skills to continuously improve and fine-tune this WMS?

Your responsibilities as a WMS Developer

  • Support translating business processes into technical WMS solutions
  • Focus primarily on process implementations
  • Develop custom code and extensions
  • Optimize processes and configurations
  • Develop, supervise or conduct tests

As a WMS Developer, this is your (unique) chance to tailor the warehouse management system of the largest shopping platform in the Netherlands and Belgium, to rapidly evolving business requirements. During the implementation phase, there will be staff from Hardis on premises to get you up to speed on the (Adelia) development platform. The platform is clearly evolving towards an objected oriented architecture: the building of REST API objects in Adelia Studio is an example of this.

Your job is to unlock the potential of this system and translate it into a solution that fits our business perfectly. How can we best graph the workload of our pickers? How can we optimize the put-away algorithm? And what is the impact of changes on, for example, navigation paths? As a WMS developer, you team up with WMS Consultants in order to translate business requirements into technical solutions. Apart from customizing and developing extensions for the WMS, you also help to configure and optimize the platform. Occasionally you even supervise test procedures. In this role, you can apply your technical knowledge and vision into a powerful and important project for bol.com.

What we need you for

Because you are an enthusiastic and solution-oriented WMS professional. You combine a genuine passion for ‘the technology’ with well-developed communicative skills and enjoy sparring with the business; you go the extra mile to facilitate people. You feel at home in a setting that explores – and constructs – new avenues. You aspire to lay foundations for future-proof solutions, but can devise quick and dirty fixes when necessary. As a person, you combine ‘typical’ consultancy traits with hardcore IT affinity. Previous experience with Reflex and Adelia is great, but we will gladly teach you the relevant skills.

3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you

  • Because you have a Master or Bachelor education and programming experience in monolithic software packages (e.g. ERP or WMS)
  • Because you have some database knowledge
  • Because you know programming languages, such as Adelia (e.g. Progress, Uniface, PowerBuilder, MS NAV or AX)
  • Because you are great at finalizing projects, but only one at a time
  • Because you’re the textbook soloist; your ideal team consists of you
  • Because you think you’ve seen every WMS solution already

Where you’ll work

Take a look around in our fulfilment center

As WMS Developer you operate within the multidisciplinary project team that conceptualizes and implements our WMS. The individual team members may change over time, but the team will include Hardis specialists, internal WMS professionals, and representatives from the business units. And clearly your actions will have a very large impact.
