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!
