Back-End Developer

Who we are

A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across extraordinary objects such as these every day.

As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone. In fact, 14 million users are buying and selling on Catawiki every month. This means we are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent!

Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 500 Catawikians working across 7 international offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.  

What you will do

The team collaborates on solving some complex development tasks that result from our continually increasing numbers of sellers and buyers (14 million monthly visitors and rising!). We’ve already implemented localisations for various European countries and will be expanding even further, outside of Europe, in the near future.

That is why we need your help; we want to expand our team by introducing even more expert knowledge. You will work on challenges around scale, microservice architecture and implement new features in Product focused innovation teams in which Front-End, Back-End and Mobile Developers, a Designer, Data Scientist, and Product Owner all work closely together. We are driven by A/B-testing and automated testing, which allows us to do multiple releases per day on our high-traffic website.

You will work with Ruby on Rails, nginx, MySql, Redis, ElasticSearch, Javascript, React, and Git in an agile development team of 60+ developers (and growing). We have headquarters in both Assen and Amsterdam in The Netherlands.
