Our office is located right in the city centre of Utrecht, next to the Janskerkhof. Every day we enjoy lunch together with the team. We have a garden where we have BBQ's and lunch outside if the weather permits. We have an open office plan with sitting / standing desks and our working schedules are flexible.

Education and employee happiness is very important to us. We have quarterly group sessions with the company with a team coach. We visit conferences, attend workshops and follow courses to stay up to date on the latest and greatest.

Utrecht is just around the corner from Amsterdam (20 minutes by train). It is a historical Dutch city and known for the largest tower in the Netherlands, the Dom Tower.


We work a lot with data and our workflow facilitates that. Our applications are written with a data-driven approach using whatever frameworks and libraries serve our needs best for any given project.

So far we've used AngularJS with D3 a lot. That said, we evolve our technology stack constantly. One of our next projects will be completely built using Webpack, Babel, Redux and React to create an Isomorphic web application. Have a preferred way of working yourself? We're open to exploring multiple options.

Our visualizations on the web are written from scratch with the help of the D3 library. Maybe you can help us rethink how we write data visualization with the next generation of JS frameworks?


It's important that all our developers can get up and running within minutes on any given project. We use Vagrant to achieve development environment consistency.

All code committed to our Git repositories is automatically checked for code and style linting errors and unit tested by our Continuous Integration server. Depending on the branch you work on your changes are automatically deployed to our development and/or staging servers.

Thanks to our streamlined and automated release process it's okay for developers to make mistakes. Either they get caught by automated testing or spotted as a bug on the staging environments. Even if a bug sneakily gets past our quality control line a rollback to a previous version is only a click away. Either way, bugs can be resolved quickly and easily without harming the end user experience.
