Job Description

Backbase is expanding. There is no doubt that we have the best possible solution in our niche market. But if you think that winning over clients comes by itself, think again. It’s a tough process.

As a back-end developer in the Solutions Engineering team, it is your core responsibility, together with your team, to support the technical evaluation process and to deliver remarkable results on a continuous basis. Your job is to support the team in taking away all possible concerns that may exist with the customer, through creating seamless integrations and solutions between the Backbase Platform and the customer’s systems.

You like, no… You love to travel and stay abroad. We work on a global scale. So if you don’t already have a frequent flyer status, you will do so within a year.

What will you be doing?

You will join our tightly knit team where you will take the lead for everything back-end. You consistently impress customers (and fellow colleagues) by creating integrations and solutions that are light-weight, using the latest and greatest patterns. Besides delivering smart code, you train teams of developers in working with our platform through workshops.

When we mention a getting-things-done mentality, you immediately recognise yourself. Not only do you feel comfortable delivering smart code, you’re also a congenial companion during coffee breaks. And let’s not forget your desire for adventure. Because if we send you to the other end of the world and overload you with work, loosening up afterwards and exploring the surroundings with your team is a no-brainer.

Who are you?

  • You talk Java [complete!] and you have more than 3 years experience in Integration

  • You are a team player with a can-do mentality

  • You know when to use your creativity and when to consult your colleagues.

  • You definitely over deliver, without under promising

  • You have the courage to learn and to share your learning process with us

  • You have strong hands-on programming skills – You like to create smart code

  • We won’t have to tell you anything about enterprise software architectures nor web technologies; you have your expert knowledge up to date

  • You are not afraid of the following Stack: Java, HTML, CSS, Javascript (Angular JS), iOS & Android

  • You don’t mind discovering the world by traveling 30% - 50% of your time, meaning a 2-week trip every other month

What will we offer you?

At Backbase we invest in our professionals. When you give your best, we believe we have to do so as well. Just a competitive salary is not enough. You receive time to educate yourself and you work with excellent specialists. Lunch will be prepared for you daily. Plus we have weekly drinks on Friday. Ooh, and did we already mention that you get to travel a lot? Being a Technical Solutions Engineer at Backbase is one of the coolest jobs in your field of expertise. Knowing all the answers just feels pretty amazing.
