De vacature

Want to turn the world of cycling upside down and take the digital experience of more than 200K customers and our entire servicing squad to the highest level?

We are Swapfiets; started in 2014 and currently active in nearly 50 cities, across 4 different countries. At our HQ in Amsterdam, we work with around a hundred colleagues to offer the very best user experience to our customers, who in turn receive epic service from a team of 1100+ Swappers and bike mechanics. The impact that you will have in this role is massive; You will shape the future of Swapfiets’ Digital products, working at the core of our operation and enabling our growth.

We are a group of about 20 Digital natives, with over 10 developers, who collaborate closely with Product Managers, Designers, and Testers. We work split over two domains: Operations, for internal systems; and Customers, for all customer-facing products. Together with the Engineering Manager and Tech Lead Frontend, you will lead the Engineering team to new technical highs. Where the Engineering Manager acts as the direct manager for the team, you will be in the lead for the technical (backend) part. You will help transform business goals into a technical roadmap, enable the team to make key technical decisions, and get your hands dirty by writing code (60% of your time). You will also play an important part in the development of the team and foster effective collaboration and a healthy team spirit.

Your role is basically split into three parts:
  1. Engineering Excellence: Coach the team, providing best practices for e.g. infrastructure and software architecture. For example, the implementation of microservices and developing for scale. Our stack is currently comprised of C# (ASP.NET) and MSSQL. You will influence when and how we move towards a truly scalable, robust and fault-tolerant platform and stack;
  2. Understanding the Business: You should have a good assessment on how to prioritize things that are important to the business so that you can convey this to others on your team. You will align closely with Engineering- and Product Management, and together create a direction and plan for the team;
  3. Team Building & Coaching: You play a leading role in coaching and mentoring, ensuring the team feels engaged and valued. You think actively about both the professional development of the existing team and work with the Engineering Manager for finding ways to attract and retain the best new talent.

Functie eisen

  • Have expert knowledge of our backend stack: C#/.NET, .NET MVC, LINQ to SQL, Azure, and WebApi. This, ideally, includes experience with containerized solutions (Kubernetes is a plus) and microservices in Azure;
  • Have built scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant systems;
  • Have a proven track record of aligning tech with business. You think in terms of the value-added to users and know how to make trade-offs between tech and product;
  • Be available and approachable. Engineers should feel comfortable talking through ideas with you and possibly asking for help. You enjoy supporting planning the career path of team members;
  • Enjoy fostering smart ways of working as a team (e.g. best development practices and improve on practices such as code reviews & testing, git, and branching strategies);
  • Act as a role model. Perhaps you speak at conferences, events or meetups about best practices in engineering and team building, or display thought leadership in another form;
  • Have excellent communication skills in English. Dutch is considered a plus.
