About Catawiki

Catawiki was founded in 2008. It was originally designed as a website where collectors could manage and keep track of their collections online. Visitors can still add new items to the existing catalogue of collectibles. Unsurprisingly, the name Catawiki is a combination of the words ‘catalogue’ and ‘wiki’. In 2011, Catawiki began hosting weekly auctions in various categories, including art, antiques, classic cars, watches, jewellery, fashion, books, and stamps.

Position

The team collaborates on solving some complex development tasks that result from our continually increasing numbers of sellers and buyers (14 million monthly visitors and rising!). We’ve already implemented localisations for various European countries and will be expanding even further, outside of Europe, in the near future.

That is why we need your help; we want to expand our team by introducing even more expert knowledge. You will work on challenges around scale, microservice architecture and implement new features in Product focused innovation teams in which Front-End, Back-End and Mobile Developers, a Designer, Data Scientist, and Product Owner all work closely together. We are driven by A/B-testing and automated testing, which allows us to do multiple releases per day on our high-traffic website.

You will work with Ruby on Rails, nginx, MySql, Redis, ElasticSearch, Javascript, React, and Git in an agile development team of 60+ developers (and growing). We have headquarters in both Assen and Amsterdam in The Netherlands.

Your qualification

A Back-End Developer who speaks excellent English. You have

  • Significant experience in building complex web applications, ideally using RoR
  • Excellent problem solving, communication and collaboration skills
  • Experience with relational databases (MySQL)
  • Worked on high-traffic websites (preferred)
  • Experience with A/B-testing and conversion optimisation (preferred)

What we offer

  • A diverse and international team with over 40 different nationalities
  • Trendy offices located in the heart of Amsterdam and Assen with an easy-going atmosphere 
  • Our entrepreneurial environment encourages everyone to take initiative and experiment with new ideas. You’ll actively contribute to the growth of the Catawiki platform 
  • An in-house ‘Learning & Development’ team which provides tailor-made trainings to facilitate your personal and professional growth
  • The fun part! Our Activity Committee plan everything from ‘CataFooty’ to International Food Festivals, Friday Drinks, Board Game Nights, Pub Quizzes and Boot Camps!
  • And there’s more! Paid holidays, holiday allowance and a pension plan paid for by Catawiki.
