Backend Software Developer

Are you an incredible Backend Software Developer and a real team player with a strong vision on IT? Join us in the role of Backend Software Developer!

What will you be doing?

As a Backend Software Developer at Coosto you will be working on our product: a software tool with which our clients make daily decisions based on social media data. You will join a multidisciplinary team responsible for one of the domains of Coosto. Our infrastructure team provides you with a platform and from there on you get ownership over the complete stack. Together with your team you will be responsible for the entire life cycle of our product, both development and operations. 

You will develop new services and help to convert existing solutions into smaller, independent (micro)services. These new microservices can be developed in PHP, Node.js, Go or another programming language; whatever you and your team decide. We have our standards as to performance, security, scalability and high availability, and of course you do too. You’ll explore new technologies and share your insights with your team.

What do you need for that?

First of all we are looking for a candidate who has the proven ability to deliver highly scalable backend applications and who has the desire and drive to build a first class product. PHP was our main language, so you will definitely be working in PHP, but nowadays most of the services are written in other languages, so don’t hesitate to discuss with your team what solution you think works best. Furthermore:

  • You have a relevant bachelor or master degree;
  • You have experience with at least several of the following technologies: Node.js, Go, PHP, Elixir, Docker, Kubernetes, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, Kafka, MySQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, Redis;

  • You have experience working in an Agile environment;
  • You are a strong communicator and your English is excellent;
  • You are definitely a team player.

If you consider yourself to have a strong sense of ownership, to be open-minded, daring to ask questions, and a kind and supportive human being, you will find yourself at home at Coosto. 


Why work at Coosto?

Because you will work in a stimulating environment, full of technical challenges in an international team of cool and clever colleagues. We have a strong focus on the agile way of working. Correspondingly, we work in short sprints, and go live fast with continuous delivery and test automation.

We pay much attention to the development of your talent: we have a training budget with which you can follow relevant courses and training. Besides that, we love to spoil our employees so we also provide you with good coffee, your favorite cookie and various fresh fruit everyday. There is also a generous lunch buffet and every Friday afternoon drinks with colleagues. Of course you will get a good salary and an attractive package of benefits. You will work from a beautiful office in Eindhoven, right beside the train station, with a wide view on the dynamics of the city. Of course you will get a good salary and an attractive package of benefits.



Nice! We are looking forward to receiving your cv with a motivational letter.
