(Lead) Back-end Developer | Den Haag
Why you want this job!
As a Lead Back-End Developer at our organisation for our ”On the way” app you are the driving force that will make things happen. You initiate, monitor and guide the full chain of development in the domain of traffic, roadside assistance, refueling and parking. From user story (business/user demand) towards the feedback loop of the final application. Your work reaches hundreds of thousands users, as you make sure these applications run smooth and stay relevant by continuously adding value. This way Julia won’t notice the integration and transition of another third party when she uses the parking application. To her it is business as usual, parks her car, has her lunch meeting, drives off and gets charged for the actual time she was parked (without having to sign off her parking spot).
What you are going to do as a Lead Back-End Developer?
- You will solve business problems by aligning with product owners and translating the business demand towards the development team;
- As a tactical team player, you will cover all the knowledge;
- You will manage the projects by drafting API specifications together with the team, setting up new requirements for existing applications, checking the quality and developing yourself;
- You will review code and delegate to enable others to deliver and set them up for success;
- You are the teams technical voice when representing us towards third parties (suppliers and Government) and you will lead these meetings.
As a Lead Back-End Developer you will get a lot of questions we can’t back up with solutions right away. However, you are resourceful and like to take the bull by the horns and solve those challenging issues. You will translate the business demand towards our tech colleagues. From there you will guide and manage the project to a point where you find yourself in the feedback loop, in which you set new requirements for the application or introduce new tech. By delegating and enabling others, you’ll set them up for success.
As a Lead Back-End Developer for our “On the way” App you’ll experience huge freedom to shape and mold your vision on the way we adopt and integrate the latest tech developments. We strive to be “the best app out there” with the highest quality and reliability we can offer to millions of users. Therefore “if the tech solves the problem, we’ll adopt it!
As the list of applications is growing, you will have to divide your time to multiple user stories simultaneously in different areas such as: on trip, road assistance (wegenwacht), parking, refueling, and electrical vehicle (EV) loading. You might find yourself in a situation where you formulate the story around the use of display panels in the “on trip application” during a meeting with a product owner in the morning. By lunch you’ll monitor the quality of a smooth transition of a third supplier in the parking application, and you’ll spend the rest of the afternoon setting up new requirements in the Realtime availability of EV chargers. The next day you will start with developing an application scheduled for this weeks sprint.
In the end a role in which you’ll be challenged to be our personal “wikipedia”, stimulate continuous development and improvement and make sure all applications run smooth.
Besides this you are a typical problem solver. You have strong sense for result, optimization and ownership over the product. You are both hands on/ pragmatic as tactical, so on some occasions you will review code and set new requirements, but also delegate and enable others to take the team to the next level. You are a team player and can communicate clearly to team members as well as (external) stakeholders. But mainly you are enthusiastic, proactive and you want to change the world! You’ll be working to facilitate innovation and experimentation with turn-by-turn navigation for Millions of users. In an energetic and dynamic great workplace culture!

We have started the in-house development of our apps in 2017, which means the App Center is the youngest department of the IT from this organization.
