We're looking for an eager to learn back-end developer. Someone who understands that merely getting something up and running isn't enough, but that solutions should be readable, maintainable and tested as well.

You understand that a well-built website requires a blend of engineering, appearance, speed, usability, content and structure. You're meticulous and can finish something to the last detail.

Enthusiasm and eagerness to learn are of more importance than your previous educational trajectory. When it comes to your craft, you like to stay on top of things. When in doubt, you're an expert at navigating around Google. You're an independent problem-solver, yet not too modest to look for help when necessary.

You have a mindset for thinking in components and have an affinity for open source.

You realize that a client won't always share your vision.


  • You'll be part of an experienced team that sees opportunity to improve in every project.
  • You'll have sufficient space for experimentation and self education, and an allowance for trainings and conferences.
  • You'll have a hand in open source projects that are being used worldwide.
  • You'll work from our office in Antwerp.

We offer:

  • A fulltime position
  • A competitive salary
  • A budget for trainings & conferences
  • Modern hardware: a new SSD laptop & shiny smartphone
  • A cell phone plan with more than enough data
  • A compensation for your transportation expenses
  • An open office in Antwerp
  • A monthly restaurant lunch with the team
