Back-end Developer

Netherlands, Noord-Brabant, EindhovenDevelopment

Job description

🎧 Are you looking for a workplace where everyone secretly listens to Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 (while crying on the inside)?
⚔️ Where your colleagues lack creativity, freedom and respect?
🦄 And where unicorn headbands and nerf guns never see broad daylight?

If yes, stop reading. We’re probably not a good match.

Still reading? Please continue reading! And find out about our latest vacancy below.

Once upon a time, there were two guys who studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and loved DJing at parties: Pieter-Jan and Robin. Both coming from entrepreneurial families, they started a successful digital innovation agency named OWOW, meaning the ‘Omnipresent World of Wizkids’. The dictionary defines a wizkid as “a person who is unusually intelligent, clever, or successful, especially at an early age.” Robin and Pieter-Jan run the agency with one motto in mind: not seriously running a serious business.

Today, a team of 30+ wizkids design and develop jaw–dropping digital products to be loved by millions. We strive to be the best in the industry. However, we realize excellence and talent are not enough to become the leader in the industry. That’s why our most important values are ambitious and fun, while remaining professional and truthful. We realize we cannot strive for great processes and results with egos in the room, so we leave them at the door, or even better: at home.

🚀 About your role and the team

We are looking for a Back-end champ, who is fond of spectacular web applications and can develop them with high precision and efficiency. From creating reusable component templates to deleting every single line of unnecessary code, to stimulate a seamless and fast workflow and deliver outstanding quality.
