Software Engineer (Team Agents)

Job description


Funda is on the lookout for amazing developers to join our team. If you want a job that is impactful, modern and touches the lives of everyone in the Netherlands, this is it. You will write code that gets viewed  77 million times per month, be involved in one of the biggest decisions in people’s lives—buying somewhere to live—and you will actively participate in ideas on how to make this journey better.


Your job

We’re looking for someone to help strengthen what we call the makelaars (agents) teams. Since funda is a marketplace, it has two big parts, supply and demand. The makelaars teams take care of our customers who mostly work on the supply part. In your general day to day job you would probably write code in C# (latest .net core) that will get deployed several times a day to our Kubernetes cluster hosted in Azure. You might have to find out how to refactor some legacy code or deep-dive into some business logic that nobody remembers anymore.


Since quality is very important to us, the code you write is generally unit tested and written with DDD in the back of your mind. You might get tagged in a couple of PRs that you need to review, or you might need to test something for a colleague. All the code we ship is tested in one way or another. We have frontenders who specialize in frontend but you will be responsible for the backend. Some of the problems you might solve are “How do I extract this old logic into microservices while being iterative in my approach?” or “How can I make my awesome team even better?” If things like the 12-factor app, clean architecture, DDD or Event Driven Architecture get your fingers tingling with excitement, then get in touch!


Your team

As a Software Engineer, you will be part of a Scrum team, consisting of a Product Owner, UX Designer, multiple Engineers and an Agile Tester. Together, you will focus on an area of expertise. There will be plenty of room for new ideas, experimentation, trial and error, and on-the-spot learning.

Requirements

Your profile

You’re proactive, eager and results-driven. Due to your strong technical knowledge and enormous drive, you are the perfect addition to the team and you easily motivate others. Furthermore you recognize yourself in the following requirements:


  • You work and think like someone with a Bachelor/Master’s degree
  • You have a minimum of 5 years' experience in a similar job position
  • You have experience building (high-volume) professional-level website
  • You know how to work with Microservices, C#, Dotnet core 5 (latest version), Kubernetes and Microsoft azure
  • You have experience with agile working methods (we use Scrum)
  • Your work is testable


This is what we offer

Funda offers you one of the most challenging jobs in your field. Whether you work in the office or from home, we’ll make sure that funda feels like home to you. On location, you and your colleagues will work in the heart of Amsterdam, with our own ‘funda square’ and an unobstructed view of the IJ river. If you work from home, you’ll stay connected to your colleagues through Microsoft Teams, and we’ll make sure you’ve got everything you need for your home office.


You’ll be working with more than 140 great (international) minds, who will make you feel welcome from the start. To us, it’s only logical to take good care of our talents, and therefore of you. If you come to work with us, we offer you:


  • An excellent salary with an annual bonus scheme and 25 days off (you can buy more days if you need them).
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Reimbursements for your telephone, home internet, travel expenses, gym and part of your pension.
  • Heavenly chair massages 6 times a year (at the office, during working hours).
  • Chef-prepared fresh lunch every day (when you’re in the office), ranging from soups to salads, fresh bread rolls from the baker and a snack every Friday.
  • Dinners, team outings, drinks and a birthday present. And during lockdown periods, funda offers great virtual alternatives.
  • The opportunity to attend congresses and follow courses and classes, because at funda, we believe that learning never stops. You can also get your creative juices flowing during our hackathons.
