Lead Developer

Netherlands, Noord-Holland, AmsterdamDevelopment

Job description

To continue delivering the most innovative products for restaurants all over the world we are expanding and looking for a Lead Developer. In your role as a Lead, you will be part of one or more multi-disciplinary teams working on technical refinements, setting up missions, prototyping, coding, and working on our cloud architecture.

You will be working on products that are used by the best restaurants in the world, handling millions of reservations and orders, and still delivering availability in milliseconds.

As a lead developer you will mentor developers on coding standards, architecture, and new techniques.

Formitable and the team

We are a bonded group of food enthusiasts, design fanatics, tech fans, and creative thinkers that try to challenge the status quo in the restaurant industry on a daily basis. We hope to do this while inspiring restaurateurs to take their restaurants’ experience to the next level and in their own hands. It’s not about where you come from or what beliefs you bring with you. It’s about sharing the same values as us and being in line with our vision, mission, and purpose. Together we push towards a brighter future for the restaurant industry.

This role sits within our Development team and is working alongside our Product Managers, QA Engineers and other Developers. You’ll work closely with our Head of Product, Pepijn Immerzeel and our CTO/Founder, Cyril Mestrom.

Our way of working

Instead of working with ‘Scrum’ or other Agile frameworks, we adopted a different agile approach.

For a while now we have been working with ‘Mission Led Development’. The key principles of this framework are:

  • Smaller multidisciplinary teams, to work together more closely
  • Longer cycles, create more ownership in the teams.
  • Mission Led, work toward a goal, and don’t just tick off tasks.

Inside these cycles, we still use a lot of agile tools like Stand-ups and Retro’s. We aim to improve this framework over time to suit the needs of our team and product.

Impact you’ll have

Our goal is to become the #1 growth platform for Restaurants. We believe that restaurants have become lifestyle brands, and with forward-thinking digital products, restauranteurs will create the same perfect experience online as they already do offline, resulting in a more valuable, loyalty-led business.
