This is why you want to work at Datenna

You will work on modern code with modern techniques

We do not use legacy code bases, but only modern code, techniques and tools. You give our company maximum clout and flexibility by writing clean, modular code. Easy to maintain and evolve. This allows us to respond quickly to the wishes of our customers and new opportunities in the market. Which allows us to quickly add new features to our platforms.

You will have impact on our system and users

As a back-end developer, you help to make the large amounts of data we collect accessible to the front-end application. You ensure that the system responds quickly and that the users have an error- free and effortless experience when using our system. This way you give our users the maximum amount of information at their disposal, which is used when making critical decisions with a lot of impact. This prevents potential wrong decisions and allows them to find the information they need much faster. This way you immediately have a strong, visible link of what your work means for our customers.

Oh, and youll have impact on international media too. Our data and insights are so unique. We were in the spotlight of, among others, Wall Street Journal and recently CNBC, Reuters and FD.

You will work in an open culture

Your work environment is surrounded by nice people who are driven and intelligent with a focus on growth. Both technically and in general. You have many varied tasks and a lot of input into how the development team is shaped. At the function level you will be part of a small team of core back-end developers who work on our production APIs/microservices and the underlying supporting libraries. You work with the Tech Lead of the team, who guides you on technical content and helps you grow. You will also work in one of the “cross-functional” product teams using the Agile Scrum methodology, together with colleagues with other specializations such as front-end developers, data scientists and engineers, China experts and business developers. Together you work towards the best possible product for our customers.
