Full-stack engineer - Skryv

Full-stack engineer

As a full-stack engineer you will become part of the product development team which is responsible for adding new features to the Skryv platform and maintaining it. This means you get to design new features from the ground up and experiment with new technologies. On the job you will often be involved in pair programming sessions. But there is also room to learn and experiment on your own.

A day at Skryv

At Skryv we are currently working fully remotely, so your workday usually starts in your home office. You open your laptop, check in to say hello and start the day with one of the following tasks:

  • (Co-)Develop our Skryv platform.
  • Participate in DevOps by keeping our platform up and running in optimal condition. You do this through proactive monitoring and improving.
  • Support our teams at the customer side with customisations, configuration changes, dev questions, troubleshooting, …

Your profile

Do you recognise yourself in this description? We want you to fit in with the team. Do not worry if you cannot tick all of the boxes yet, we are not perfect either.

  • You are a motivated developer eager to learn.
  • You care about what you build and focus on quality.
  • You take ownership and always look for improvements.
  • You value good development practices (TDD, CI/CD, XP, …).
  • You like working in a team (pair programming).
  • You are able to split large problems into smaller parts and share your solutions with the team.
  • You keep an eye on the bigger picture (the direction of the Skryv Platform).
  • You are a good communicator, both in English and Dutch or French.
  • You have the guts to work at a dynamic scale-up with an agile way of working. This means that you are self-driven and autonomous, that you like to work in a quickly changing environment and have a flexible attitude whenever the job requires it (which works both ways, as you can read below).

  • Flexibility to organise your work (the two-way flexibility)
  • A sports budget, a mobility budget (you choose how you move around), health insurance, a group insurance and we cover for your work-related expenses.

What's the procedure?

You drop us a note at jobs@skryv.com, explaining why you want to work for Skryv and how your experience can help us to become even better as a company. A link to a blog, a github account or any other info is always a plus! Next, we set up a call to get to know each other. If you and we are convinced that there is a good match, you meet the team and do a short exercise that resembles the work you will do. If both sides are still happy and fully convinced, we sign a contract and get going!
