Senior Full Stack Developer

Job description

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 Europe was founded in 2012 and grew from 4 people in a home-office then, to about 160 employees (and counting), now working from a bright office in Amsterdam-Noord. We are dedicated to transforming solar energy into the most fun, accessible, inspiring source of energy and to triggering a European Rooftop Revolution. Today, Sungevity is servicing thousands of new clients in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Italy every year and still growing super fast! 

How do we make our mission happen? By clearing hurdles with innovative technology. By always keeping our promises. And most importantly: by treating our customers as friendly neighbours who share our passion for greening the planet.

The team and your role
IT and software are at the very centre of Sungevity's unique, accessible and client-centric approach. That's why the IT team forms the heart of the organization. Behind the scenes we ensure all the processes serving existing clients run like clockwork. We make sure all new clients receive a tailor-made offer, including system design, that's both accurate and razor-sharp. We lay the foundation on which our promises are built.

We have a small (but growing) IT-team in Amsterdam, currently consisting of nine people: Product Owners, Business Analysts, Developers, Helpdesk and IT Services and Cloud Computing.

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 …

Currenly our Kanban-organised 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 Docker in AWS. We’re looking for a Senior Full Stack Developer who can help the team take the next steps in setting up this new stack. Languages currently used are JavaScript/TypeScript, Java, Go and PHP. Our Front-end framework is moving to either Angular 6, React or VueJS.


Are you the Solar Warrior we are looking for?

  • Do you have experience in a senior / medior position? In the past years you coached other developers and worked in an Agile environment. You are proactive and enjoy sharing your expert knowledge?
  • Do you fully understand the intricate details of at least one major programming/scripting language and are you always eager to learn more?
  • 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?
  • Did you work on setting up new systems before, containing multiple connected services, API’s and authentication?
  • Do you have a good understanding of web security practices?
  • Do you have great communication skills in English?
  • Do you have a valid permit to work in The Netherlands?

Is (almost) everything a yes?
