Java Software Engineer


Are you a Java (JEE) software developer and ready to deepen your technical knowledge, while making the world a better place? Join our team of seasoned developers and medical experts and apply now!

Our team has 32 people, and our development team of 12 works in strong collaboration with our 3 testers. You will have the best of both worlds: a specialised development team to stimulate your further technical growth, combined with daily practical input from colleagues who are working across the country to improve healthcare.

We are building a new development team, which will work on the new product development! 

The Role

You will be challenged in the front-end, back-end and integrations with external platforms. As you might imagine, reliability and security are super important. Within Java EE, you will work with the Spring framework. Our platform uses event-driven architecture, which we implement with the Axon framework. Developing in Axon is quite challenging, as it forces you to think in an additional dimension: time. Implementing new routines will not only alter the most recent state of a record, but all historical states as well, while preserving history and integrity of all previous events altering that record.
