Our product revolves around providing our clients with key insights about their data, a cutting-edge forecast, and optimization of their business. As Software Developers we get to design and create every step of the process from our Data Warehouse, through the complex and challenging but always interesting client data integration, all the way to presenting our work with a stunning UI to our end users. There is room for innovation on every leg of the journey and we make sure that all voices are heard when making decisions on how to implement something new. There is no endless bouncing from project to project at Transmetrics. Through a continuous integration process, we see our work quickly making a real positive impact on the way customers interact with our software.

We expect you to:

– Be eager to learn the ins and outs of backend design, database interactions, UX polishing and a bit of business logic about the transport industry along the way.
– Have a broad overview of the entire Software-as-a-Service creation process, as you will be able to quickly find out where your interests lie and either focus your work on a narrower area of expertise or do a bit of everything.


Your main responsibilities:

Quick learner
As a junior person with little experience, any candidate for this position is guaranteed to learn a lot as their work progresses. The ability to keep an open mind and to be eager to learn new things is of vital importance.

As we develop our product further, we constantly have to code new features such as UI screens and the server code that operates them – a great way to learn more about full stack development.

Understand new forecasting and optimization prototypes handed over by your colleagues and transform them into solid and maintainable product modules.

We expect a junior developer to grow inside the company. From day one the team is there to help you develop into a good software engineer.
