Are you just as energized and passionate about technology and software development as we are? And are you, as a Javascript developer, enthousiastic about our vision, way of working and world-conquering goals? Come and meet us!


The position: Improving, extending and innovating our platform

As JavaScript backend developer you’ll work with a team of top-notch developers, product owners and business stakeholders translating business requirements into tangible software solutions within the e-commerce platform and related systems. You’ll work in one of our five Scrum teams together with developers from Greetz and our near-shoring partner (25 developers), where quality stability and innovation are high on our agenda. Together with the team you are responsible for the architecture of the Greetz platform and so you will be working on implementing new features as well as extending existing features. You’ll work together with the team to continually raise the bar in software development procedures.

At Greetz there are 3 teams that focus on front-end development of the e-commerce platform. Two out of three teams work on the responsive website and a specialized team focusses on the HTML editors for online personalization. All these teams develop front-end solutions for a wide array of devices and are closely involved with product development of new digital and physical products. Our editors are built using a combination of TypeScript and AngularJS and we offer two editors; a mobile-optimized editor and a full-featured desktop editor. These editors are delivered as a drop-in package for the mobile phone, tablet and desktop websites in a fully automated continuous delivery stream using Atlassian Bamboo and Grunt. For version control we rely on GitHub and we mainly work, depending on the project, with Gitflow or Feature branch workflow.

Designs are stored as SVG templates inside the Greetz system which can be modified by customers using the HTML5 editors. The accuracy and precision of this design process is extremely important; our products should look the same when they are produced as when they were designed online. Because of this we make use of several proprietary libraries that ensure high performance and an unrivaled customer experience. In the coming months we have a series of important challenges such as (but not limited to) improving performance on mobile devices, rewriting the text layer engine to be able to render content server-side as well as in the browser and the implementation of new physical products.

We have a “flat” organizational structure with short communication lines. At Greetz you’ll find a professional but familial atmosphere and a no-nonsense mentality. The main language in the company is Dutch, but our development teams operate mostly in English. Our office has an open floor plan so that we can quickly get a hold of someone we need. Greetz is one of the most ambitious and innovative e-commerce companies in The Netherlands and has become a well-known contender in the e-commerce business. On a daily basis we bring joy to more than 20.000 products that we make. Not only the online platform, but also the tangible, self-produced gifts that we fabricate in our own production facilities are an important ingredient to success.
