Experienced Software Developer & Team Coach

We are looking for someone who is passionate about software development and wants to help their team get even better!

Full-time · Enschede

We are looking for an experienced Software Developer that will also coach one of our DevOps teams on an individual and team level.

What will you do as a Software Developer at Sqills?

Teams consist of a combination of Developers, Testers, a Product Owner and a Team Coach.

As a team, you are responsible for the complete development and management cycle.

Together you work on (backend) microservices in the AWS Cloud. Because you work with software that handles hundreds of requests per second (high performance), your work continues to be challenging.

Some of the things you are responsible for:

  • Designing and implementing microservices for S3 Passenger;
  • Translating functionalities into software solutions and bridging the gap between desired functionality and technical solution;

At Sqills we focus on quality. This is reflected in the ownership our team members have for their own microservices, but also in the fact we have extensive requirements for developing components.

Because our software offers the complete inventory, reservation and ticketing suite for our international customers, our focus on quality is especially important.

What will you do as a Team Coach at Sqills?

As a Team Coach, you are responsible for coaching one of the DevOps teams consisting of 7/10 colleagues. You will be responsible for setting objectives, managing tasks together with the Product Owner and ensuring that the team meets its goals and objectives. Next to this you are also responsible for team motivation, team growth and individual growth.

Within your team help establish a culture in which we continuously improve. Within your work, the emphasis is on coaching and guiding the professionals in your team so that they can perform optimally. You facilitate an atmosphere of openness, safety, and trust. An atmosphere where employees feel free to say what they think and feel.

You have a facilitating role in the field of further professionalisation of your team members. Together with your fellow Team Coaches, you ensure that you coordinate and cooperate together. You also contribute to the realisation of continuous improvements.  

Your profile

  • You have a Bachelor Degree;
  • You have good communication skills to clearly convey your ideas to others;
  • You like having different responsibilities, working in small teams on challenging assignments;
  • You are a facilitating personality and are proactive in coaching your team;
  • It makes you happy to let others get the best out of themselves and coach people to develop themselves;
  • You are fluent in English, both verbal and in writing. It may be helpful if you speak Dutch, but not required;
  • Experience with working in an agile environment is a plus;
  • Minimum of 5 years years of relevant work experience as a Software Developer;
  • Experience with Java, Go, Kotlin or Rust, JavaScript;
  • Experience with SaaS applications, experience with microservice architecture is a plus;
  • Knowledge of AWS;
  • Experience with the build / deploy pipeline.


Our software is complex enough, applying for a job shouldn’t be. That's why we'll only ask for a name, a phone number or email adres.

Please be aware that only Dutch citizens, EU citizens, or individuals holding a TWV work permit for the Netherlands are eligible to apply for this position.


Having our microservices running on AWS makes us scalable for any customer anywhere in the world.


Spend more time on code, less with debugging.


Writing less code is always good - less is more.


Version management...what else would you use?


Runs all of our code in many containers in a microservice landscape
