Utrecht | ICT / IT / Programmeur | Fulltime (startersfunctie)
With over 7 million customers, 30 million monthly visits and 15 million products, bol.com is the most successful online retailer in The Netherlands and Belgium. Over 1.200 people – including more than 300 IT-professionals, and 55+ Scrum teams – strive to make bol.com into the best, most customer-centric shop possible. Every Scrum team requires someone at the helm to facilitate things and communicate. Are you that person? Are you also able to constantly evaluate the team’s performance, including your own contribution?
As Software Engineer – Scrum Master you combine ‘hardcore’ development skills with taking the lead in your Scrum team. You create the right conditions for effortless software development by shielding team members from high business waves. You keep Product Owners informed and challenge them when necessary. Are their expectations realistic? What tooling do you need to develop, and in what order? With the starting gun for a new sprint still ringing in your ear, you are already prepared for and busy supporting your team’s activities, all while safeguarding the principles of Scrum.
You dissolve impediments, mobilize resources and keep stakeholders informed. You initiate team evaluations and strive to maximize your team’s autonomy. You’re also dedicated to the development of quick, secure and scalable Java-based solutions, both for our retail platform and back-end processes. You facilitate deployments and tests, give concise demonstrations and provide user support. Finally, you develop the innovative tooling needed to optimize the development process itself, ensuring that continuous delivery becomes the norm.
Who you are
You are a Software Engineer with excellent communication skills, a passion for engineering in a big data environment, and up to date knowledge of modern tools and techniques. You combine technical competence with organizational skills, are motivated to improve things and you have a keen understanding of Scrum, which you view favorably but not unquestioning. You can motivate your decisions persuasively, both to Product Owners (why are we developing solution A first?) and to your team members (when is good ‘good enough’?).
Why work at bol.com?
Bol.com has one of the best work environments you’ll ever encounter. From the casual atmosphere, to the invigorating energy of the building with its open spaces, to the overall high standard of professionalism.

We’re also interested in what makes you tick as a person, in your desires and ambitions, and what projects suit you best. And then there’s all of the other reasons, including our on campus soccer field, hackathons, fitness facilities, games-room, and our Friday afternoon get-together with drinks at our own bar.
