How do you make our customers happy?
With 10 million customers, 30 million monthly visits and about 16 million products on display, bol is the most successful online retail platform in The Netherlands and Belgium.
And when we say platform’, we mean it. Well over 23,500 external partners and counting enrich the product base. Data-driven, adventurous (making mistakes is no biggie, as long as learnings are shared), we intend to deliver on our promise to make life easier and more fun for customers.
And that is exactly what our 500 IT professionals (25% internationals), who comprise 90+ autonomous Scrum teams, do.
The biggest challenge
Although our business model may sound familiar, our approach to network retailing sets us apart from the usual suspects.
So much so, in fact, that while we admire the achievements of international platforms, we don’t necessarily consider them our peers.
We opt for a more localized approach (up close and personal!) and our ways of working reflect our idiosyncratic DNA. At bol, it’s all about autonomy and taking ownership, so end-to-end responsibility is the norm. Can you shoulder that?
Your responsibilities as a Software Engineer
As Software Engineer, you will join one of our Scrum teams. We believe in ownership, and you will have a mandate (together with your team) to develop features end-to-end.
At bol, we are big on autonomy, and that makes us strong : we expect you to make all (technical) choices along the way but also to assume ownership when things go awry.
You build it you run it you love it is our mantra, and we live it every day. Every Scrum team is part of a Fleet every Fleet part of a Space.
