Software engineer - Skryv

Software engineer

As a software engineer you are part of the product development team, which is responsible for developing and maintaining the Skryv Platform and the Skryv Studio. You get to design new features from scratch, experiment with new technologies and continuously improve our products.

Skryv, Digitale Gov entrepreneurs

Our mission is to simplify the (digital) interaction with and within the government. We are the fastest way to digitise government services. We offer low-code software modules. Both for government agencies providing services and for companies using digital government services. Because Skryv is part of the Vanden Broele group, you will experience the best of both worlds: a dynamic start-up culture within the stability of a larger group of experienced players.

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:

  • Develop our Skryv Platform or our Skryv Studio, either through pair or mob programming or by working individually.
  • Participate in refinement sessions with the product team to clarify upcoming to-dos.
  • Participate in design sessions for new features.

You as Skryver

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 have a master's degree in IT, computer engineering or a related technical field.
  • 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 our productss).
  • 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).

  • Javascript, Node.js, React, Some Angular (but we are switching to React)

  • The freedom to choose your tools (OS, IDE, …)
  • A learning path that will advance your career, at Skryv we believe in T-shaping and continuously invest in our employees. You’ll learn on the job by pairing with your colleagues, as well as through formal training. We reserve fixed time slots dedicated to learning and exploring new topics, whether it is developing your technical skills or improving your soft skills. As a company, we want to foster curiosity and encourage you to experiment safely without fear of failing.
  • Flexibility to organise your work (the two-way flexibility :).
  • And of course, we have fun! No need to be serious all the time! Every 2nd Thursday of the month, we play games and have a relaxed portion of fun.

What is the procedure?

Very simple: drop us a note explaining why you want to work for Skryv and how your experience can help us to become even better as a company. 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 come over for a few hours. 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! Interested? Or do you want to know more?
