Hilversum – Are you ready to use your leadership skills within the team of Independer that will further shape and roll out our tech strategy? Read the vacancy for Lead Developer and click on the ‘apply now’ button!

What will you be doing as Lead Developer at Independer?
As a strong hands-on lead you’ll focus not only on content but also on directing, coaching and growing your development colleagues within the scrum team. Independer is in the middle of a true DevOps and agile transition. We have big plans for the transformation of our platform. And as Lead of the development team you are responsible for the rollout of this transformation within the team. Besides tackling the big key projects of 2024 together.
You can count on working with tools and techniques like C#, .NET 7 & 8, Angular 17, TypeScript (JavaScript), Nx and SASS. And with our migration to the cloud we’re focusing on Azure, App Services en YAML pipelines.

Specifically you focus on:

  • The development and growth of colleagues – You identify and grow talents. You address underperformance and provide feedback. Together with the Head of IT & Development you take care of the personal growth of your colleagues. You for instance stimulate your colleagues in showing courage and seizing their freedom and responsibility.
  • You prioritize based on impact – you make technical decisions based on business objectives. And you manage and adjust your team based on the impact you can make.
  • You’re the link to the rest of the organization – you ensure close collaboration with IT Services, the Data department and the other Scrum teams. You influence decision making within teams and help teams choose the best technology solutions to support the long-term strategy. You facilitate rather than direct.
  • Go-to-person – You focus on innovation and trends. You engage with technology improvements within and outside the team and create support for adoption. You like to share this knowledge with the rest of the organization.
  • We can officially call ourselves a Great Place to Work. We received the title from our colleagues and Great Place to Work Netherlands. What does that mean? Our colleagues call it a fine organizational culture where they want to work with pleasure, trust and pride.

    Why Independer?
    Despite the fact that we belong in the list of the biggest online platforms in the Netherlands (like bol.com, coolblue and takeaway) Independer is still a relatively small club of around 250 specialists. This makes our culture flexible, open and lively. A flat hierarchy in which freedom and daring are central.

    The technical environment that we offer is complex, challenging and in full development. We want the best (online) environment for both our customers and our colleagues. This means that the focus is on ‘getting the latest and greatest tech’. We focus on .NET Core/ .NET 7&8, Azure (DevOps) and Angular (17.0). And in case we missed anything, we look forward to your input!

    The fact that we’ve been around for 25 years is thanks to our open, relaxed culture and our Independents. Independents think in terms of possibilities, dare to make mistakes and help each other. And all that in an environment where a positive work/life-balance is valued, a hybrid way of working is offered (alongside the possibility to go on workation 2 times a year) and where no one is surprised if you walk into our office in Hilversum in your shorts or flip-flops. Some of your colleagues have been proud Independents for years and that is not without reason: Independer is constantly developing and you grow with us. That makes you the owner of your own career.

    What we are looking for in our new colleague?

    As Lead Developer, you have a good understanding of internet technology and software development in general (C#, .NET, ASP, .NET MVC, OOP, SQL etc.). You have a good understanding of the development of software principles and web-related technologies and you have knowledge of Angular (17.0), web API, GIT, .NET Core, Azure and Continious Integration.

  • Pragmatic – you know that behind every technical decision is a business need;
  • Visionary – you stand up for what you believe and are a role model for the team and your colleagues;
  • Team player – You know that nothing feels as good as achieving a goal together. You actively share your knowledge and it gives you energy. Not only with your team, but also with the other departments;
  • Coach – you provide constructive feedback and directing, coaching and developing colleagues gives you energy.
  • What do you get from us?
