Are you an experienced professional in PHP, MySQL, and Laravel, and able to effectively share your knowledge with colleagues? Are you looking to join a team where the focus isn't on where or when you work, but rather on the impact you make on our clients' success?


What you’ll do

At Radancy, a typical day doesn't exist. Here’s a snapshot: You arrive, grab a coffee, and join the back-end development team, greeted by the scenic Hollandsche IJssel and friendly colleagues.

You'll begin by detailing some Asana tasks for a teammate adjusting a job importer, then switch to PHPStorm (or your preferred IDE) to work on feedback for a merge request for WerkenbijDefensie.nl.

By lunchtime, you're ready for a break. Our chef has lunch waiting in the Radancy café. Post-lunch, you'll discuss a new API integration with an external partner and refine roadmap projects with UK and US colleagues.

The day ends with GitLab code reviews, but not for long - there's a team gaming and pizza night!

Who we are

Radancy is the global talent technology leader intelligently solving the most critical challenges for employers and delivering results that strengthen their organizations. Our unified platform, augmented by rich data and deep industry expertise, is revolutionizing how employers attract and hire the talent they need – through connected intelligence. We assist leading companies and government entities in the Netherlands – including the Ministry of Defence, the Tax Authority, the City of Rotterdam, ING, and NS – to stand out as employers and attract the right talent for the future. Our services range from crafting Employer Value Propositions to innovative media plans, and from creative concepts to building complete recruitment sites on our Talent Acquisition Cloud platform or RudderCMS. As the top player in the Dutch market, we house all the necessary knowledge and expertise under our own roof. And as a member of our globally operating brand, you can rely not only on your 65 colleagues in the Netherlands but also on the wisdom, experience, and support of about 1,200 colleagues worldwide.


Who you are

  • At least 8 years of experience as a back-end developer/engineer.
  • You have mastered PHP 8 and Laravel; these technologies hold no secrets for you.
  • Proficient in MySQL, Git, and adept in writing unit tests.
  • Experienced in mentoring junior colleagues and guiding their development.
  • You maintain a broad overview of projects, work with clear objectives, and provide direction to colleagues as needed.
  • Despite your extensive experience, you're committed to continuous learning and keeping up with the latest trends in Laravel development.
  • Whether working in a team or independently, you're known for being both fast and meticulous.
  • Your specific educational background is less of a concern for us. Whether you're a computer science graduate or entirely self-taught, at Radancy, we value talent over traditional educational paths.
  • Extra points for experience with any of the following: EFK, Ansible, Talos, Flux, Helm, Minio, AWS, Go Lang, Vault, Haproxy, Crowdsec, Service meshes in Kubernetes (Kuma / Istio), Terraform.

We're also looking for a social colleague who communicates and collaborates effectively, is analytical, problem-solving, eager to learn, and fluent in both Dutch and English.

What we offer

Beyond a competitive salary, travel expenses, and pension contributions, we offer a unique opportunity for personal and professional growth. You'll work among specialists in back- and front-end development, media, research, creation, and design. Collaborate with driven colleagues and professional clients who are as skilled in communications as you. All in a flexible environment focused not on where or when you work, but on your contributions to our clients' success.
