Senior Java Back-End Developer

Senior Java Back-End Developer

Keenfolk is looking for Senior Back-End Developers in region of Amsterdam for one of our clients.

They are an ambitious global technology and consultancy firm delivering independent software quality assurance solutions.

They  believe they can make the world a better place by helping developers and organisations create better software. To accomplish this, their Software Development Team is continuously improving and expanding their Software Assurance Platform.

This is no small task: adding every week new analysis capabilities; growing and developing their frontend to become more intuitive, integrated and feature-rich; they are preparing their backend to scale and handle more code, faster.


What will be your role?

We are looking to help our client to grow their team at a steady pace. What you will do is pretty high end, so we can’t and won’t hire people in bulk. You’ll quickly find yourself responsible for significant chunks of the landscape. The consultants we place for our client are heavy users of their own software. They are close by, and you’ll be working with them to get things right. You'll be doing some proper engineering, ranging from finding and solving performance bottlenecks to exploring new tools and technologies. And, once you're on to something, you'll talk about it in one of our frequent knowledge sessions.


What's in it for you?

You'll work on the software that runs our business, so what you do makes a difference. You'll work in a modern environment with modern technologies, and you'll work with great colleagues in a diverse team. Through our process and coding standards, you will become an even better coder than you are today. There's plenty of opportunities to educate yourself through online training, attending conferences and trying out new stuff during our annual hackathon. On a lighter note, we have weekly Friday get-togethers to provide some desirable distraction. In general, you have a lot of control over your schedule as long as you get the job done.



  • Several years of experience as a software developer in our back-end stack consisting of Spring/Java, Hibernate and Postgres.
  • Experience with managing cloud computing resources is a plus
  • Experience with IT operations is a plus

  • MSc in technical field
