Back-end Developer

Job description

Your new challenge
Can you write codes (O-O) like no other? Are you familiar with MVC frameworks, preferably Laravel, and TDD? And - most important – are you crazy about well-structured and high quality codes? Well then, we have the perfect opportunity for you! We are looking for medior and / or senior Back-end Developers.

Your input
You are used to work in accordance to the Boy Scout Rule - leave your code better than you found it! You write well tested codes you are proud of. In this role you will be responsible for server-side web application logic and integration of the work your front-end colleagues do. Every morning you attend the stand up meeting and tell what you did yesterday, if you ran into any issues and what you are doing today. Besides that, you:

  • Have enough experience (minimum of 4 years) to start immediately: you are a medior / senior back-end developer.
  • Are a very inquisitive, proactive personality. You provide input when there’s a problem and you immediately start working on practical solutions. 
  • Have proficient knowledge of design patterns, back-end programming language PHP, code versioning tools such as Git and PHP frameworks like Laravel. 
  • Are crazy about windmills and stroopwafels and you are willing to relocate to the Netherlands

Your team
You will be part of a solid product team, consisting of designers, developers and a product owner. You are facing a big challenge: making the most unique technology in the recruitment industry, worldwide. The team works via scrum and two-week sprints. Every morning, the team starts with a stand up about their challenges and goals for that day. Together you make sure that week after week new developments take place and are being produced.


Our mission

Wonderkind believes in recruiting talent based on their true passion. That’s why we’ve developed a technology with which companies can advertise their job vacancies on social media, Google, websites and apps. We hypertarget (as we call it ourselves); we attract talent based on their online interests and behavior, or in other words: that what makes them happy. And that, in turn, makes us happy. Our tool is the world’s first fully automated software, based on artificial intelligence - the next big thing in technology, for which we’ve already won several awards. Together we have the ambition to make Wonderkind big because we think the recruitment industry worldwide is due for change. Do you want to help us innovate?

Our working atmosphere

We are a young, easy going and ambitious company in full growth. The energy runs through our beautiful office at Zeemagazijnkade in Amsterdam. The office is open from 8-20h, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be there the whole day. It is important that you are flexible because let’s be honest: at a startup like Wonderkind it can be a little chaotic from time to time. Fortunately, you can always rely on your 60 colleagues, because we are straightforward, we like to learn from each other and we are dedicated.

  • A gym in our office with kickboxing classes; work out as much as you want
  • Loads of possibilities to develop yourself
  • Friday afternoon drinks with the best special beers
