Who are you?

You are an enthusiastic developer and a critical thinker. You will interact with a lot of new and external HTTP APIs, you are not afraid of experimenting with them to learn how they work. At Channable we help each other to become better as a team. That's something you believe in as well. Besides the skills you currently have, an eager-to-learn mindset is just as important.

Additionally, you have:

  • Experience developing applications in Python

  • Experience with web APIs and related technologies, as we both consume external and build our own web APIs

  • Good understanding of HTTP, TLS/SSL and TCP/IP

  • Familiarity with SQL and relational databases, as we use Postgres heavily

  • Good working knowledge of Linux, git and the command-line

  • High engineering standards: do you like to leave your code cleaner than you found it? So do we!

  • EU citizenship or a valid work permit for the Netherlands, you are preferably already living in The Netherlands

  • Available for at least 32 hours a week

And then there are some things that are ‘nice to have’:

  • Experience in working with large asynchronous applications, because we do a lot of IO!

  • Familiarity with functional programming and its concepts

  • Having worked with distributed systems before

  • DevOps mentality: we believe that software teams should be able to complete the software development cycle themselves, and enable them to bring their code to production themselves, and to do so every day.
