If you can read this, you are probably the person we are looking for. Great! But what’s in it for me, you ask? Let us tell you something more.

As a Software Engineer, you’ll work on our in-house created package ‘Miles’. It is an ERP software for automotive finance, leasing, fleet, and mobility management. This end-to-end solution encompasses front-, mid- and back-office functions that can be extensively customized to the customers’ needs through configuration and custom development.

You’ll be part of a multidisciplinary team containing other developers, business consultants, testers, covering our end-to-end business flow. This means you can rely on a very broad base of knowledge and expertise. Every team in Sofico works in an agile way, including scrum, daily stand-ups and backlog refinement. Besides that, you’ll also be joining our Java community, which connects all the Software Engineers within Sofico worldwide. To learn from each other, by sharing best practices, codes, tips and tricks, is what we are striving for.

Being a Software Engineer at Sofico entails that you’ll:

  • Mainly work in Java EE7 and Java 8-11.

  • Play an important role in building and rolling out solutions, both within the company and to our customers.

  • Either work on improving the current application, developing new modules, or implementing a customization project for one of the customers.

Your interests and skills

A passion for developing and building solutions is at the top of our list. As a Software Engineer it is also key to be able to keep the bigger picture in mind and how different elements are intertwined. Problem solving is one of your strongest abilities, and you do this in a methodical way. If you are a team player as well, you’re the perfect blend of soft skills.

We’d love to see the following aspects as well:

  • A degree in Computer Science, IT or equivalent.

  • 5+ years experience with the following technologies:

    • Java8-11, Java EE7

    • RDBMS (Oracle, SQLServer, Postgres)

  • Experience or knowledge of any other technologies (such as Angular, Kafka, Quarkus, Docker or Kubernetes) are a nice plus.

  • You are fluent in English, as we are an international and multicultural company.

What we offer

We would like to welcome you to an international and multicultural company that has been operating for over 30 years and is doubling in size every 5 years. Growth is our middle name, while strongly adhering to a horizontal and open company culture.

You're in the drivers' seat of your own career, that's the motto. Your personal development is therefore paramount. During an extensive onboarding program of six months, you, with the support of your job coach, will become familiar with the product and the organization. Even after this period, you will continue to get opportunities to learn and develop yourself further. You’re never alone.

In return for your efforts, we offer an extensive salary package, including a bonus system and hospital insurance.

At first, you’ll be working from home but in time an office will be opened. You will have flexible office hours and opportunities to work from home, even after we set up the office.
