You are responsible for
In one of the Agile development teams in Zeist (it is a big plus if you live nearby), you develop new (cloud-based) functionality to make the exchange of healthcare information effortless for medical doctors and their supportive staff.

You make sure new functionality can be deployed and easily troubleshooted and maintained. As a senior developer, you will also coach other software developers and advise the CTO and other staff on process improvements and new technology choices.
To succeed in this role, you should have the following skills and experience
You have professional Java or .Net development experience in a sizeable codebase for at least 5 years. In general, you have proven problem-solving skills (HBO/WO/University level), preferably in a Unix/Linux network intensive (DevOps) environment.

The environment is small enough for you to be recognized for your achievements, yet Forcare/Philips is big enough to offer opportunities inside and outside the Netherlands.
We look honestly at ourselves and try to learn from our mistakes. There is good coffee, regular chocolate and a communal lunch where the CEO can sit next to an IT support intern. Besides working passionately to improve healthcare, we also allow ourselves to relax with activities that vary from cultural outings and coding challenges to indulging ourselves in (sometimes geeky) humor.
We welcome you to a challenging, innovative environment with great opportunities for you to explore! Our benefits are very competitive and designed around your preferences:
25 Days of leave and the possibility to purchase up to 20 extra days off annually.
