Fullstack Developer

Job description

At StuDocu, our mission is to empower everyone to excel at their studies by providing the best tools to study more efficiently. StuDocu is the world’s leading community for university students. Every month we help more than 15+ million university students to get smarter, faster. After rapid and profitable growth in the Netherlands (under the StudeerSnel.nl brand) we are now taking the rest of the world by storm fuelled by a further investment of 50 million USD.


We are looking for a talented addition to our team who is a wizard with PHP and also has ample experience with modern Javascript frameworks such as React. You will work together with the team to develop and maintain a lightning-fast and fully tested website and app. Javascript, PHP, and SQL have no secrets for you and you'll always be on top of the latest tech. You have a good understanding of web basics (JavaScript, HTML, CSS), allowing you to make changes across our entire stack. Our agile team is still small which will put you right at the core of our development team. Joining us now gives you the opportunity to be one of our team leaders in the future.


Why you'll love it here:

  • You will be helping to build a product that aids many millions of students worldwide to excel in their courses.
  • We are using the latest technologies and updating the older ones whenever possible.
  • Flexible, ambitious, and eager to learn team, bringing your own ideas to the table is more than welcome.
  • You will be working closely with PMs and UI/UX designers.
  • Your own workspace including hardware of your choosing.
  • A free healthy lunch and unhealthy snacks every day when in the office.
  • An awesome office in the centre of Amsterdam with a huge garden, right next to the canals.


What our process looks like:

  • First, there is a short introductory call with our recruiter to get to know you better.
  • Then, a second call with StuDocu's CTO to touch base and tell you more about the future of our Tech teams and products.
  • If that goes well, you will receive a coding assignment followed by a technical interview with your future team leader as a last step of the recruitment process.

We're looking forward to your application!


*During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still interviewing and hiring, but all conversations will obviously be via video call! For now, StuDocu adopted a flexible remote-first policy, but we still require our 45+ employees to be located in or near Amsterdam in the Netherlands (we are supporting the relocation process). We encourage our employees to visit the office once every other week to build relationships and socialize while abiding by the safety rules. When it's safe again, you will be able to take full advantage of our bright office in the center of Amsterdam with canals, restaurants, and cafes right around the corner.
