What you do as Back-End Developer at New Story

You’re (partly) responsible for coming up with, building and maintaining a wide range of solutions: from API's to complex back-end systems. You and your team work on the best and most logical solutions that improve the service of our clients. You’re an experienced developer who leads by example. While creating and programming solutions, you share this knowledge to your fellow developers around you.

What you do:

  • Writing and extending APIs in microservice setup with Golang.
  • Developing interfaces with Laravel Nova.
  • Designing, organizing and optimizing databases.
  • You consult with Front-End Developers about the data they need in the applications and you link internal and external data flows to make it available in the best way.
  • You think along about technical choices, such as our architecture, tools and processes.
  • Testing through unit and end-to-end testing and documentation based on Open API specs.

What we would like to see from you

‘Hire for attitude, train for skills’, is a mantra that fits New Story well. Do you fall short in certain areas and want to compensate with a healthy dose of eagerness to learn? Great, we give you the space and the environment to further develop yourself. We would like to start a conversation with you.

Here’s the list of qualities we’re looking for and it’s okay if you don’t have the Royal Flush:

  • A relevant BSc or MSc, for example in the field of IT.
  • Experience as a Back-End Developer.

  • Experience using Golang or Python, Kubernetes, Containerised workloads, Microservices architectuur, Unit testing and databases.
  • Experience working with tools such as Git, SonarQube, Docker and Postman.
  • Experience with AWS, CI/CD workflows, end-to-end testing, OpenAPI specs and documentation.
  • Proactivity regarding clients and colleagues.

  • You’re a team-player and a knowledge-sharer.

Diversity and inclusion

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from – you’re always warmly welcome. New Story’s international ambitions are growing and we would like this to be reflected in our team. We cherish a colorful culture, in which we help each other move forward and where everyone feels safe to make mistakes and especially to be themselves.

What you can expect from us

Needless to say you can expect an excellent salary and all the perks that come with good employer practices. But just as important is the environment that we offer. High on a dune and overlooking the sea, you’re immersed in a culture that is ambitious in a healthy way, where a team - diverse in age, experience and expertise - is putting in the miles together. You get the time to study to keep developing, perhaps in our innovation lab. We don’t feel much for linear learning processes though. Our ever-changing world constantly puts us all to the test. We trust in each other, look for solutions together and share the knowledge that we gain along the way. We often stick around after working hours to talk about the wildest projects.

The multidisciplinary nature of our organization allows you to look across the border of your own domain. You work together with experts that provide context to your working activities. You not only know what you’re making, but above all why. Is development important to you? You can’t escape it at New Story.

The hardware you get to work with

Good news for fanboys and girls: we work with ramped up MacBooks that connect to well-equipped working stations at the office. Since Corona we’re sure that your keyboard taps just as comfy at home, so we’ll help you with the set-up you require there as well.

New Story: the short story

We are Creative Marketing Engineers working to make progress every day. We believe that the growth of our Newstorians is ahead of our clients’ digital evolution. Our team consists of 70+ experts that can roughly be divided into strategists, creatives, marketers, UX-writers and a multidisciplinary group of developers. Together we make beautiful things that work. This is mainly reflected in the on-going development and growth of digitally driven platforms.

We take time

We’re glad to get to know you in person during a laid back conversation where you can be fully yourself. We prefer to discuss your motivation at the office, with a cup of coffee. This way you get a sense of New Story’s vibe.
