Java Full-Stack Engineer - Skryv

Java Full-Stack Engineer

For the further build of our platform we are looking for a Java full-stack engineer. You develop the core of our software platform and help to keep it up and running. You are keen to learn new stuff and like breaking things.

A day at Skryv

Your workday starts at home, our office near Brussels Central Station or at the client’s office. You open your laptop, check in to say hello and start coding. Fan of vi, IntelliJ or Sublime? You pick whatever tooling that allows you to take up any of the following roles:

  • (Co-)Develop the core of our software platform (Node, Angular, Java, Vue.js, …).
  • Participate in DevOps by keeping our platform up and running in optimal condition. You do this through proactive monitoring and improving.
  • Support our teams at the customer side with customisations, configuration changes, dev questions, troubleshooting, …

Your profile

Do you recognise yourself in this description? We want you to fit in with the team. Do not worry if you cannot tick all of the boxes yet, we are not perfect either.

  • You have a bachelor or master in IT, engineering or equivalent practical experience. You have a broad technical interest and are keen to learn new stuff.
  • You are comfortable building and using RESTful APIs.
  • You deliver high-quality, maintainable code that flows through our continuous integration and deployment cycle.
  • You are able to split large problems into smaller parts and share your solutions with the team
  • Whatever you do, you keep the customer in mind.
  • You are a good communicator, both in English and Dutch or French.
  • You have the guts to work at a dynamic scale-up. This means that you are self-driven and autonomous, that you like to work in a quickly changing environment and 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:

  • A learning path that will advance your career, at Skryv we continuously invest in our employees. You’ll learn on the job from your colleagues and through formal training. There is plenty of room for specific training to develop your technical skills. For soft skills, such as communication and teamwork, we organise company workshops and training.
  • Flexibility to organise your work, including home working when possible (as said, flexibility works both ways!)
  • A sports budget, a mobility budget (you choose how you move around), health insurance, a group insurance and we cover for your work-related expenses.
  • And of course, we have fun! No need to be serious all the time! Every 2nd Thursday of the month, we go for a drink, play games and have a relaxed portion of fun

What's the procedure?

Very simple: you drop us a note (jobs@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!

What are you waiting for?
