Full Stack Developer (freelance)

Job description

Sungevity is a leading solar panel company operating in The Netherlands and Belgium. To support our growth, Sungevity’s IT team is looking for a freelance Full Stack Developer

Are you a Full Stack Developer, looking for an energetic and mission-driven work environment? Do you want to play a role in speeding up the energy-transition? Then this opportunity might be just right for you!

Sungevity’s international office is based in the north of Amsterdam. From there a growing team of about 150 people work energetically on the Rooftop Revolution. Our culture is fast-paced, passionate and fun. We’re prepared for the fact that no two days will be similar on this adventure, and we’re committed to make the most of our opportunity, ourselves and each other.

The IT-team has great humor (really we do). We support each other, and we love to learn from each other. We like to hang out together: when there is no pandemic, we go for drinks or do other fun activities.

The team and your role
Our IT department consists of three teams:

  1. Helpdesk/application management
  2. Software development
  3. Solution development

The whole IT department has 16 members, consisting of 8 nationalities! We work in an agile way, aiming to keep the time between designing a solution and having it online as short as possible. We prefer simple over complicated solutions. The IT department is self-organizing, and we expect you to actively participate in improving the team and our way of working. The IT department is active in all parts of our business, from sales to installations, from customer portal to Solar-system performance monitoring. You will be supported by, and reporting to the CTO in this role.

The systems the IT-team is responsible for are:

  • Customer facing websites and portals (in multiple countries in Europe)
  • Sales / Installation process support systems
  • Solar System monitoring
  • Reporting and alerting on our customer’s Solar-system performance,
  • And many more …

Currently our Kanban-organized team is redesigning and rebuilding our complete software-stack, moving from Drupal to a new setup: a separate frontend connected to a micro service backend running on AWS Lambda’s (serverless) combined with AppSync for GraphQL or API Gateway for REST endpoints. We’re looking for a Medior Full Stack Developer who can help the team take the next steps in setting up this new stack. We use Typescript for all our backends and Javascript in the frontend. For our frontends we use VueJS v2 and v3.


Are you the Solar Warrior we are looking for?

  • Are you a freelancer that likes working project based and diving into matters?
  • Are you looking for a temporary position for at least 3 months?
  • Would you say you are on medior/senior level? Do you have experience with coaching other developers and working in an Agile environment? Are you proactive and enjoy sharing your expert knowledge?
  • Do you like to 'get the job done' in the least complex way possible?
  • Are you a CI-advocate and do you like to work DevOps style?
  • Have you worked on setting up new systems before, containing multiple connected services, API’s and authentication?
  • Are you a team player and can you handle a lot of responsibilities?
  • Do you have great communication skills in English?
  • Do you have a valid permit to work in The Netherlands?

The benefits

  • A versatile, independent and challenging project for a minimum of 3 months;
  • An hourly salary of €70-90 (depending on experience & fit);

  • A very international and informal work environment with pretty awesome colleagues from 15+ different nationalities.
