Recently, we were honored to be named the European Agency of the Year. Our next focal point: becoming the best design-driven digital agency in the world. That is why we are looking for a back-end developer to create, build and shape back-end architecture and scalable solutions for projects like Dutch Design Week, Rialto Cinemas and our unique in-house digital tools.

Technical specs

We love open source software and find it important to contribute to the developer's community. We need you to help us do this! We’re looking for a developer that thrives in writing clean code that opens up collaboration and optimisation with the other developers in our team.

You have at least three years of experience and bring a lot of knowledge and ideas in back-end development. The future of tech excites you, and you’re happy to contribute to that future. We work with PHP, MySQL, Git, Auto deployment, Laravel, Composer, AWS. And have a keen interest in Node, MongoDB, Restful APIs. A clear eye for security is highly valued. Furthermore, if you're familiar with SOLID Code Structure, Elastic Search, DRY, and Agile, even better!

As a developer at Vruchtvlees, you will work on both our own initiated projects as well as projects for clients. You’ll be responsible for building and shaping the back-end architecture and to create scalable solutions that we can re-use in the future. You will work in a team of inquisitive developers who are constantly looking for the most effective way of working. One of the first things you contribute to is building our next-gen CMS. Curious about our workflows? Head to our insight-article written by lead developer Sander Hidding. 

"It often seems that we have become so accustomed to the fact that something "just works" that we hardly forget what it takes to realise an website or application. To create functionalities that are simply intuitive to use, extensive research, mapping out the data streams are essential. Flows that are hidden behind a the front-page."

— Sander Hidding (Digital Producer, Vruchtvlees)

Care to collaborate?

At Vruchtvlees, we’re not all developers. Even though we work on a lot of different projects, we’re part of the team in every project that we do. That means the whole team is just as excited to try out a website or connected API, as when there is a new rebranding project released. We like doing things together, whether it’s celebrating birthdays in the studio or our regular Friday drinks.

We are a next-generation agency and work on interesting projects. You will get the space to pioneer, but will also get the chance to grow and take part in all different things we do. We appreciate your input and ideas to improve our work processes. Your opinion is valued and you can make a difference.
