  • We’re growing fast for the last 5 years - recently Deloitte has listed us among the top 3 fastest growing start-ups in Belgium.

Your journey at Urbantz:

  • Bring your technical spirit with you
  • Guide our product and technical evolution, and drive reductions in technical debt
  • Evaluate our business and technology strategy

About Our Stack

  • We migrated from AWS ECS to Azure using Kubernetes for container-orchestration. Our main data store is MongoDB hosted on Mongo Atlas, but we also use Elasticsearch for some corner-case full-text search needs. Our backend and API code runs on Node.js, while the front-end web application is written in AngularJS.
  • Our toolset also counts with single-command, build & deploy tasks for both production and staging environments, working along with GitLab CI. We use Protractor for the end-to-end testing and Jest for the back-end unit testing.

  • A willingness and passion for mentorship
  • Have min 5 years of experience as a Software Developer
  • Have excellent written communication skills

  • Work applying DevOps principles, practices, and values

What’s in it for you?

  • Opportunity to join a winning team. Great people that work hard but have fun while doing that!
  • A fast-growing company where you are given a lot of autonomy and trust
  • Flexible company, nice colleagues to work with, fun company activities (even for our remote people!),...

  • A competitive salary package
