Technical Consultant


Technical Consultant

Skryv is growing. There’s 10 of us, but we need more brains! If you join us, you’ll work on high-impact tracks: we create solutions that  simplify the administration for thousands of users.

As the technical consultant, you are the primary technical contact for the client.

You'll need to get a good understanding of their architecture and non-functional requirements. Based on that, you design the technical integrations such as web service calls, security integration and data fetching. Once you discussed the design with your functional colleagues and have it peer reviewed, development can start. If it is a bigger chunk of work, additional developers may be involved. Finally, you take care of the installation of the solution on our cloud infrastructure or at the client's infrastructure.

All of our development is based on a modern technology stack (Java8, Spring boot, Node.js, ElasticSearch, Camunda, docker, ...).

A day at Skryv

Your workday starts at the client site or at our office near Brussels Central Station.

You open your laptop, check in to say hello and start the day with one of the following tasks:

  • Meet the client to shape the customisations and integrations
  • Technical design in collaboration with the functional analysts and other developers
  • Development of the customisations and integrations
  • Installations on our cloud platform or on the client site

In the beginning, you will receive a lot of hands-on coaching. As you grow in your role, you'll work more and more independently. As Skryv continuous to grow, you'll become the coach yourself.

You as a Skryver

We want you to fit in with the team, so you should recognise yourself in the following list. Do not worry if you cannot tick all of the boxes yet, Skryv is a great place to learn & evolve in your role.

  • You have a master in IT or computer engineering
  • You speak and write fluent English and Dutch. French is a plus.
  • You communicate well and keep the customer in mind (this is a client-facing role)
  • You are able to self-organise your work
  • You keep track of your work through JIRA
  • You are able to split large problems in smaller parts and present your solutions to the team
  • You have 2 -5 years of experience with java (incl. spring) and have had exposure to node.js 
  • You deliver high-quality, maintainable code
  • You are comfortable with modern web aplications 
  • You have a first experience with standard Web Security technologies (LDAP, Oauth2, …)
  • Experience with BPMN and docker is a plus
  • You have a broad technical interest and are keen to learn new stuff
  • You want to take ownership of your code
  • You like to work in a quickly changing environment
  • You can be focused, you are self-driven and work autonomously towards deadlines
  • You have a flexible attitude whenever the job requires it (which works both ways, as you can read below)

What do we offer apart from your paycheck?

We want you (and all of us) to become the best in what we do. So you’ll get:

  • The freedom to choose your tools (OS, IDE, …)
  • A learning path that will advance your career. You'll learn on the job from your colleagues and through formal trainings. There is plenty of room for specific trainings to develop your technical skills. For soft skills, we organise company workshops and trainings.
  • Flexibility to organise your work, including home work when possible (as said, flexibility works both ways!)
  • A health insurance, a group insurance, a sport budget and a mobility budget (you choose how you move around) plus cover for your work-related expenses.

What’s the procedure?

Very simple: you drop us a note (toon@skryv.com), explaining why you want to work for Skryv and how your experience can help us to become even better as a company. A link to a repo, blog or any other info is always a plus! 

Next, we set up a Skype call to get to know each other. If you and we are convinced that there is a good match, you come over for a few hours. You meet the team and do a short exercise that resembles the work you will do. If both sides are still happy and fully convinced, we sign a contract and get going!
