Working at Peaks

Peaks is an innovative app that makes investing a possibility for everyone since November 2017. We make investing not only accessible, but sustainable as well. And we’re not just a startup: one of the largest banks in The Netherlands funded us. Our company already has over forty employees and we all have the ambition to conquer not only the Dutch market, but also the rest of Europe with Peaks. Our app is live in the Netherlands, and we are attracting a lot of customers. In the meantime we need you to make sure our product stays in shape and continues to evolve.

What are you going to do?

You will team up with our mobile engineers to make sure we are supporting our mobile application and our customers. For that reason, it is important that you are comfortable and confident in giving your opinion to your fellow colleagues. You will assist in refining and enhancing our micro-services architecture and overall service offering. You will not rest until your code actually works and is on production. This means you test for robustness, edge cases, usability, and general reliability. Of course we do not mind if you automate the most obvious test cases.

We most probably like you a lot if you…

  • Are a generalist who is comfortable with more than one programming language like Go (, Rust (, Python, Ruby, Java, C#, Javascript (node.js), or others
  • Are a result driven professional who can deliver whilst playing with technology
  • Have a good understanding of business processes and can own tasks from design to production

We see it as a big bonus if you also…

  • Have experience in a micro-services environment utilising Docker
  • Have a good understanding of IT infrastructure
  • Stay for beers and bitterballen on Friday afternoon

We offer you:

  • A competitive salary
  • An office at the Schipluidenlaan in Amsterdam
  • An environment with other open-minded developers
  • No bureaucratic hassle: a flatter than flat organization and no-nonsense culture
  • A green field to apply, try and learn new tools and programming languages, evangelise new ways to solve problems
  • The opportunity to join a startup with great potential

Interested? We’d love to hear from you (as long as you’re not an agency)! Send your motivation and CV to the team: Any questions about the job? Feel free to reach out!
