A Software Engineer at funda can proudly say that she/he works on a product that is known and used by millions of people. But funda is more than ‘just’ a well-known marketplace where supply and demand meet. We’re developing into a platform that helps our visitors with all the important things that come with buying or selling a home. If you get a kick out of technical challenges, an enormous reach and working with the latest cloud technology, working at funda is a great opportunity for a software engineer like you.
Your software engineering colleagues know that they can work nearly anywhere they want to. And yet, they all choose to work for funda. Because here, they can work with the smartest people on a premium brand. They build features from beginning to end and deploy them with continuous delivery. But not only that: they also have the freedom to come up with solutions that impact 77 million visits per month.
A flood of data coming your way doesn’t scare you – you know exactly how to ride that wave. By building clean and precise services, you can provide the right data from multiple data sources so that product developers have access to everything that they need to build amazing website features. By building an automatically scalable infrastructure in the cloud, you are able to scale up and down in a heartbeat.
You will be part of our TDM team, which is able to make the life of their colleagues a lot easier. Together with your colleagues Liewe, Dmitry and Kwok and Lead Backend Andries you will build new decoupled data supply services, so that product development teams have the right data to build their products. As this is a small team, your input will be very valuable. There will be plenty of room for new ideas, experimentation, trial and error, and on-the-spot learning.
You have a ton of exciting ideas and are not afraid to break through barriers to make them see the light of day. Collaboration is a key word in your career – it lifts you up to work together with other teams, and you know communication is more than just answering the questions other people ask you. As a T-shaped professional, you actively look for feedback and you are not afraid of a steep learning curve – the world of real estate agents has many secrets for those who start. Are you up for a challenge?
Apart from having an awesome personality, here are some requirements we are looking for:
