Backend Developer (Java/Kotlin)

  • Location Groenlo
  • Business unit Retail
As a Backend Developer at Nedap Retail, you will work together in a team on a number of applications written in Java or Kotlin. You will also actively think along and collaborate on the development direction of our products. Because more and more and larger retailers are using our applications, we launched a second instance of our multi-tenant SAAS solution in the USA at the beginning of this year, in addition to our instance in Europe. In addition, developments in the field of data analysis (machine learning) are not standing still either, enabling new applications with the (stock) data collected by our platform.

Nedap Retail develops innovative solutions for retailers worldwide. With our solutions for inventory management and security, we guarantee retailers that they always have the right product available for their customers. To achieve this, Nedap Retail develops state-of-the-art RF, RFID hardware and Cloud-Based software services. Through this great combination of hardware and software, we are able to provide store employees, managers and the head office of retailers, with the right information in an accessible way.

'The market we work in is cool. We're in the processes of the biggest retailers worldwide. And how cool is it that there are thousands of devices communicating with your software?" (Eerde, Front-end Developer)

Your team

The Nedap Retail Services team is an enthusiastic group of colleagues with different development backgrounds, from front-end development to mobile development. Self-reliance and personal responsibility are of paramount importance to us. This means that you search for knowledge and solutions yourself. The 'culture' in our department and within our team can best be described as free, open and social. What binds us is the passion to create user-friendly and technically advanced solutions that our customers enjoy working with every day.

You also work a lot with the Devices team at Retail which includes hardware, firmware and product engineers. The contact between these teams is good.

'We want to develop ourselves as a team and are also not afraid to make mistakes.' (Jaap, Team Captain Software Services)

In addition to your salary and vacation pay, Nedap has a 13th month, a profit distribution and the possibility of shares. We also have a very attractive pension scheme. But above all, we invest in your development! Nedap has no pots for your development. In addition to our extensive induction program and personal development program, we are happy to look at your potential with you.
