Full-time · Groningen

About the job

In your role as data platform software engineer, you will be designing and developing the next generation of Web-IQ’s data platform, powering our Open Source Intelligence products and services. Our products process over a petabyte of data with billions of documents and relations. As we process more data and are faced with more diverse use cases, the data platform at Web-IQ needs to scale even further than it already has.

We are looking for engineers who are deeply interested in database and data processing technology. You will have a leading position in allowing our products to scale to tens of thousands of databases and extending our query capabilities while at the same time increasing operational efficiency and reliability.

Ideally you have previously built data-intensive systems, and you have a strong understanding of various choices within the ecosystem e.g., SQL and NoSQL, search systems, graph databases. This is a hands-on position where you will be involved in architecture decisions and building rock-solid software but also communicate with Web-IQ’s leadership and coaching other engineers.

Our team

While our experienced team leads are always there to guide the whole team, Web-IQ has a very non-hierarchical structure, which means you are given a lot of responsibilities and are stimulated to develop yourself. We work on complex systems, so if you like to be challenged then you’re at the right place! At the same time, the teams always break into smaller groups to dive into sub-projects, so you will never get lost in the code and always have someone to work with.

No day is the same at Web-IQ, so our daily standups are important to ensure that everyone remains in touch and stays in the loop on running projects. At Web-IQ you will be part of a creative, social and energetic team that is passionate about making the world a better place. Our developers are the brains behind our reliable systems and the creators of innovative new features. The projects that you are working on are important for our customers fighting crime on the internet. Your work really makes a difference!
