What you will be doing

Do you want to work for an international player and help build a widely used marketing platform? Do you think it’s cool to put your homemade code live in your first week? Do you also want to work in a nice team in a startup culture? Then Junior Backend Developer at Swydo is the ideal job for you!

Swydo offers software for online marketers worldwide to create automated reporting and dashboards of their marketing actions on all different platforms. Think of PPC, SEO, SEM and social media data. This saves time and makes talking about digital marketing performance easier. Of course is an online marketing platform never finished and that is exactly where the challenge lies. How do we make sure that what we do today doesn’t get in the way for years to come? And how do we make the platform as user-friendly as possible and can we quickly implement new developments in the platform?

As a Junior Backend Developer you can help us with this and therefore have a direct influence on the product of tomorrow. For example, you are involved in:

  • programming and building web applications;
  • translate data from external parties to the Swydo platform;
  • writing code and helping with bug fixes;
  • link new applications via API and let them communicate automatically;
  • searching, forwarding and more convenient data storage;
  • critical thinking, problem solving and trouble shooting.

Swydo (“show what you do online”) is a Dutch startup with a family atmosphere. Currently, the team consists of 20 people, who work every day to improve and expand their online platform. From a beautiful villa in the middle of Hilversum, the team is preparing for the next phase of the company: from startup to scale up. For this they need great colleagues who bring new knowledge.
