Elixir Backend Developer

  • Groenlo
  • Healthcare

At Nedap Healthcare we carry great responsibility about all the medical data which is maintained in our systems. We do this at scale: we build software for about half the care organisations within our sector in the Netherlands. We create tooling to allow our customers to exactly determine the access rights for each patient for each employees. These tools have to keep the authorisation process strict, manageable and without loosing the flexibility to deliver care when it is needed the most. 

This challenge is huge! We balance between usability and security on a functional level, while technically dealing with large numbers of data and requests.

The platform is there and currently calculates thousands of authorization requests per second. This doesn't mean that there is no challenges ahead. We're constantly improving on the system: finding new, more convenient ways to do authorisations, improving on identity management, or provide more insights on the privacy impact of our applications.

Your team

We work with a relative small team of about 4 people from different nationalities with two remote workers. As member of the team you can be working on a variety of applications, mainly written in Elixir and Phoenix. As a team we also support other applications with client libraries written other languages as Ruby and Java.

Our offer

Obviously, we offer excellent primary and secondary conditions. You are responsible for your own working hours and holidays. Nobody keeps track, as we rely on your own accountability. Moreover, we offer you the means to fulfil your own responsibilities. We also have a good financial arrangement. Nedap does not only offer you a salary and holiday allowance, but also an annual bonus, dividends, and the option of shares. Moreover, we have a very interesting pension arrangement. But most of all, we invest in your development! Nedap takes your development very seriously. We offer an extensive introduction program and a personal development journey, and we will gladly look at your potential with you.

Required experience and skills

We're looking for a back-end developer. Preferably with knowledge of Elixir and Phoenix, but we're open to anyone who is able quickly pickup a new language. 

  • You have a background in computer science or software engineering.
  • You know your way around in Elixir; or you have sufficient experience that shows that you're able to pick up a new language. 
  • Knowing about functional programming paradigms is preferable.
  • You know your way around in relational databases.
  • You are able to deal with complexity, but be pragmatic where needed.
  • You're not afraid for systems at scale (thousands of requests per second)
  • You're passionate about performance and high availability.

There is plenty of work to do on various entry levels. This makes the position open for both junior as senior developers. We do prefer some experience (at least 1-3 years), but we're particular looking for someone with a strong feeling of ownership and someone who is willing to go that extra mile to improve on the product. So, if you master the alchemy of Elixir, you like to solve complex and abstract problems, ór you are triggered by something else from the above, we would love to get in touch!
