Software Developer (IT starter)

We are looking for someone who is passionate about software development and wants to develop into a senior software developer!

Full-time · Enschede

Well-educated IT professionals such as yourself are rare, and that makes you a sought-after commodity in the marketplace. That means you have plenty of choice about where to start your career. What are you going to look for?

  • A great team?
  • Room for personal growth?
  • Challenging projects?
  • A good salary?

Fortunately, you don’t have to choose at Sqills.

At Sqills you get the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice right away, but we also think it is important that you get a chance to continue to develop into the IT professional you want to be. Here you get experience by doing, but also by learning.

That’s why you’ll join in with the daily stand-ups with one of our DevOps teams right away and gain practical experience. Because you only truly get better at something by doing it again and again.

About the job

Within Sqills we work with Agile DevOps teams. These teams are a combination of Developers, Testers, and a Product Owner. Each team is jointly responsible for the entire development cycle of their microservice(s).

Together you develop microservices in the AWS Cloud. We also believe that ownership and quality are important, so each team is responsible for testing services themselves.

Being responsible also means that you prevent and solve problems in the various production environments. You will do this with the help of New Relic, Sentry, Kibana and Prometheus to name but a few tools. Does something go wrong late at night? Then the team will be notified immediately.

Within the teams, we work with different programming languages (e.g., Java, Go, Rust, Kotlin,), which allows you to continue to challenge yourself here too.

We are looking for someone with…

  • A completed IT education at HBO or WO level;

  • Strong analytical skills;

  • An eagerness to learn and someone who is truly happy when it comes to learning new skills knowledge and developing it further;

  • Excellent communication skills in both Dutch and English.
