Do you strive to upholding (web)standards? Do you have a passion for jQuery, Web 2.0, CSS, Javascript, HTML and design? Then we should get in touch!

About Qelp

Smartphones are becoming the standard and mobile internet is growing fast. The result: more and complex questions from customers. And if providers don’t provide the answers, customers will look for them elsewhere. At this moment already a large number of these questions is being answered on fora, blogs and websites of retailers. This increases the chances that providers will lose these customers.

Qelp has developed applications to provide the answers to all these questions and, at the same time, reduce costs, acquire new customers and increase revenues with relevant tips and advices that drive the use of mobile devices and services:

  • Picture-based selfcare
  • In-context campaigns
  • Experience driven sales

These applications enable mobile operators (our customers) to meet end-user demands (their customers) by providing answers in an excellent and visual way and help them drive the cross and up sell of mobile services. Qelp is able to do so by having up to date product content of all mobile devices, excellent visual support, top class web usability and continuous monitoring and improving of online behaviour based on factual reports.

Our customers are Tier 1 companies like in the Netherlands KPN, T-Mobile, Telfort and Rabobank. The company is now going through a phase of international expansion. We offer a challenging position with lots of room for personal growth in one of the most dynamic markets of the moment. You’ll be encouraged to come up with ideas for innovation related to smartphones, SaaS, social networking, search engine optimization, app stores, cloud computing etc. There’s a lot of flexibility but if a project needs to be finished we expect no 9 to 5 mindset either. The team atmosphere is informal and our offices are located at one of the most beautiful locations in Amsterdam at the Herengracht, just 10 minutes walking from Amsterdam CS.
