Are you passionate about IT, and want to build cool stuff that has an impact on how many people work day by day? Do you get a kick from developing state-of-the-art software? Are you up for a real challenge, and are you - or do you have the potential to become - a really world-class software engineer or IT professional? Then please read on, because this may be the opportunity you have been craving for....

Raet is a leading software firm and cloud solutions provider (SAAS) with more than 1.7 Million users. Headquartered in the Netherlands, Raet’s "Youforce" platform helps more than 1500 clients with Human Capital Management (HCM) - ranging from standard payroll for about 25% of the entire Dutch workforce to advanced eHRM (Human Resource Management) applications that enable global clients to find, hire and further develop their talent and succeed in tomorrow's economy. Human Resources may not have been the domain you had first in mind, but realize that tons of studies and research have shown that the champions of tomorrow are those companies that are best able to develop their employees and use their skills - and that is exactly why what we make matters... A recent acquisition also established a strong foothold in Latin-America.

Raet counts about 1200 employees, including more than 300 IT Professionals (software developers and infrastructure experts) in various development and operations centers across the globe. Raet is not a start-up – which means it offers long-term perspectives - but it is also not a mammoth - so agility and entrepreneurship are still part of its DNA: as such it is right-sized for professionals who have the right "can-do" spirit.

In today's tech domain, we need to move fast - and that's what we also want to do when hiring our new teams. Which has to be top notch - and has been waiting for your force. As such, for our Payroll development teams team in Amersfoort (The Netherlands), we are looking for several senior and junior Database Developers.  As Raet’s Youforce is all about Big Data, you will focus on high-volume Microsoft SQL database development, PL/SQL packages development, data import, export, upload data from external sources (different file formats), data transformation and replication responsibilities. Delivering and tuning towards high speed performance.

You contribute to the delivery of key software projects. Key responsibilities include understanding technical requirements and architectural choices contributed by the architecture and (UX) design teams; providing technical advice to the project team both local and remote; producing a solid software design; contributing code to the solution as required. Be of assistance where needed.

We embrace agility, and apply the SAFe framework to ensure we scale our agile practices across our portfolio.

As member of a self-organizing Scrum team, you help decide how work is addressed and optimally distributed among the team members. While keeping focus on delivering committed results as a team, you assume full responsibility for delivering your assignments - and are fine to assist with or to take over tasks originally assigned to other colleagues. You feel responsible towards end-users, and reach out when they need your help. You make full use of the freedoms given to "do your thing" and to be innovative in creating new technology, but stick fully to common promises made towards your colleagues & the organization. At the same time, you help improving our best practices - and are constantly looking to make them even better.

Especially from senior Database Developers, we expect them also to:

  • Guide and coach team-members as subject matter expert 
  • Deliver input on estimates for customer requirements in tenders and specific client contracts
  • Participate in knowledge "guilds" and actively share and develop knowledge on database development, professional development, software quality, new technology, new tools, techniques and training.

Technical skills we look for include (ideally you possess these - or you have a demonstrated ability to acquire them fast, and excel in using/applying them):

  • You feel very comfortable in SQL development, working with queries and stored procedures, optimizing for large-volume performance, database (re-)design
  • Strong knowledge & experience with eXtreme Programming, Lean & Scrum - knowledge of and experience with SAFe is a plus
  • Strong database-tier and middle-tier development skills, working with APIs.
  • Passionate about code and software architecture

If you combine this expertise with a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctoral degree, then this will be a plus that will be fully recognized. However, some of you may have acquired world-class expertise in another manner, and that is also fine. In addition, any previous experience with HCM software is an asset.

Finally, and of utmost importance, we are looking for team members who share our mindset & core values: SMART, helpful, conscious, expert & reliable. You have a strong commitment towards quality of work - and realize that quality code comes in the first place from having the right mindset - and embrace transparency.

We are certain that in a few years' time, you will be more than happy to have taken the time to react to this opportunity today... See you soon!
