Senior Back-end Developer

Job description

Rush hour traffic jams: Unfortunately these are part of our commute to and from work. Not surprising as 75% of daily commuters travel by car, 88% of which travel alone. Think of the impact that can be made if only 10 percent of commuters traveling by car, started doing so together. This would result in less traffic jams and lower carbon emissions!

Our user-friendly ride sharing omni-channel application connects colleagues traveling the same routes to and from work, removing all barriers by making it super easy and fun to travel together. More ride shares lead to fewer cars on the road, decreasing traffic jams and lowering emissions, which will result in a faster trip from A to B and more available parking spaces when you get there. Toogethr is growing rapidly and we are looking for a Senior Back-end developer. 

                                      ✓Sharp ✓ Pragmatic ✓ Positive ✓ Energetic ✓ Structured

As our Senior Backend Developer you will be part of our development team where you will unravel huge data sets, design architecture, implement the latest cutting-edge technologies and guard long term technical goals. You will work with the brightest minds in the industry and be part of the frontrunners of (online) technology.

We are constantly improving our products and services for our customers and community. In our office in Utrecht we have multidisciplinary teams with one shared mission: enabling a sustainable mobility movement where everyone drives Toogethr!
