Our client is looking to add 2 software engineers to their expanding team. The client has built one of the most popular platforms in the Netherlands. The platform is known by everyone in the country as the place to trade and pick up a bargain. We are now extending the platform and apps. 

The platform handles over 1 million visitors and 350.000 new advertisements. But they want to go even further - they are constantly changing their platform to improve the experience for their users. 

Your responsibilities will include: 

  • Build an Android native app which customers love 
  • Write unit tests which verify the app in a Continuous Delivery process 
  • Be a key team member in development and design of new projects 
  • Coach of junior and medior developers (guide them through architecture and procedures, be a mentor helping with skills development) 
  • Think with your colleagues about architecture decisions and help work them out 
  • Help to continuously improve development work in all areas (coding, processes, tools, testing, etc.) 
  • Be a technical sparring partner for the organisation to help the business create efficient and effective requirements 
  • Work with your international counterparts across the worldwide eBay Classifieds Group 
One of the positions will be in the team that is experimenting with new features using Firebase. They are looking for ways to grow, or get people more engaged with the platform. Also, security is a hot topic in this team. Making sure we are dealing with real users and not bots.

The other team is working on the onboarding of Belgium onto the platform. Understanding of architecture and experience with Node and backend development is a plus here.


You should be an expert in software engineering and have good knowledge of what it means to work with large and/or distributed systems. The person we are looking for has extensive experience in online or related areas, with at least a demonstrable 6+ years of full-time employment and at least three years developing Android apps in Java. Furthermore, we need someone who lives and breathes Agile development, can focus on delivering, and wants to take a leading role in improving how we work. 

What we expect from you: 

  • Preferably you have a degree in Computer Sciences or comparable topic
  • Android native app development using Java and Kotlin 
  • Experience with security
  • Experience of using Rest APIs 
  • Experience of writing unit and UI tests 
  • Agile methodologies 
  • Affinity for e-Commerce 
  • Building great products
  • Experience with Nodejs (pre)
