  • Assisting in the development of various projects and products in our portfolio, as member of a team with other developers and designers
  • Researching new, emerging technologies in the TV market to keep us on the cutting edge
  • Learning new technologies and skills in the quickly evolving world of TV

Must haves for this job:

  • Experience with JavaScript, HTML and CSS
  • Good grasp of the Dutch or English language
  • Eagerness to learn!

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with version control systems (preferably Git)
  • Experience with streaming video, video on demand and DRM.
  • Experience in other programming languages (preferably PHP, Java or Objective­C)

We offer

  • Fulltime position
  • Salary and benefits matching your experience
  • Offices in Alkmaar (soon to move to Amsterdam) and Barcelona
  • A fun, informal atmosphere with great colleagues
