  • Geplaatst op: 25-03-2014


About us

As the European leader in social business technology, inSided is a fast growing (+- 50 employees in 2014) company with it’s HQ in Amsterdam, NL which started in 2011. We deliver a Social Business Platform focused on the creation of communities for our customers and their end-users. No boring CMS tools but a dynamic and innovative SaaS platform, consisting of several modules, in a fast growing, internationally focused and challenging market. Our platform is used by million of end-users for Enterprise companies like Philips, T-Mobile, Tele2, Rabobank, NS (Dutch Railways), Volkswagen, Sunweb and many more. We have embraced an (extremely) open culture within inSided with transparency and short lines between teams. We are allergic to the 9-to-5 mentality and are well known for the parties we throw and organising/hosting tech-meetups like the Amazon Web Services meetup and ElasticSearch meetup. The development teams like table soccer, beer, burrito’s from the Mexican around the corner and 48h hackathons. Preferably all combined together.

The job

Within one of our implementation teams you will be responsible for specific (Enterprise) customers regarding the front-end implementation (and aftercare) of their community platforms, which are used by milions of users. Together with your direct colleagues (including designers, project implementation manager and more) you work in an agile mode (short lines) to ensure that the project is successfully implemented and the customer is happy. You ensure that specific designs are implemented using flawless HTML5/CSS3 and Javascript in combination with the standardized inSided platform components. The PSD’s, that you receive from the project designers, will be transferred to full-fledged communities by using our REST API which you use to fetch data from the platform. You will stay in touch with your colleagues from the core-development teams to provide them with feedback on the used inSided components so they can improve them further.


You breathe ‘web’, ‘social’ and ‘development’ and are capable of using the latest technologies available to ensure that your (Enterprise) customers are extremely happy with the result in cooperation with your team. You can use our tooling with a creative mind which allows you to build virtually everything on our platform. You get a kick out of a well-implemented community and a happy customer, which will be celebrated afterwards. While you are mainly responsible for -and actively involved in- the front-end build up of our customer communities, you have a clear vision of how the UX should be and you are not afraid to say it and discuss it with the team.

  • Hands-on experience in HTML(5) and CSS(3)
  • Hands -on experience with Javascript (jQuery)
  • Hands -on experience with Photoshop
  • Pixel perfect is the only way to deliver for you
