About Coolblue

Coolblue. Once, it was only a college start-up. Today, it`s an online enterprise that`s made up of 8 physical stores and over 325 specialized webshops. Ever since we began in 1999, we`ve had but one goal: to make customers happy. We provide expert advice and we’re obsessed with customer satisfaction. Together, we work our butts off in order to amaze our customers.

Position

As a PHP Developer at Coolblue you will make sure our web shops are ridiculously fast and meticulously kept.

  • Coming up with new functionalities and building them 
  • Improving the technology that runs over 300 web shops 
  • Improving the user-friendliness of all of those web shops 
  • Working in teams, consisting of 5 (+/- 2) developers and designers 
  • You are an all-rounder in a Scrum team. You will have your own specialization, but you will also be able to perform all other tasks within the team 
  • You prioritize your own work together with your team and Product Owner. You will receive immediate feedback from end users and you will have a lot of opportunities to experiment 
  • You will be using the right tools for whatever job will be thrown at you. Choices that were made in the past are not rules 
  • You will work in a motivated team to meet ambitious deadlines. There is always a budget for good ideas 
  • Big data is your guru, your gut feeling isn't. To measure is to know 
  • By actively coaching and continuously providing feedback to team members.

You will be working in a family with three to five other developers, each of them with their own specialization, ranging from PHP to Javascript. Your team will be managed by a Team Lead, a Scrum Master and a Product Owner. You and another team are part of the same family, so you're both responsible for one specific domain of Coolblue.nl.

Your qualification

  • You're smart and have some way to prove it 
  • Minimum of five years experience as a PHP developer 
  • You're experienced when it comes to improving your colleagues craftsmanship and technical skills 
  • You're able to solve problems using accepted best practices and principles like SOLID and design patterns 
  • You care about code quality 
  • You know how to automate recurring development steps and implement them in continuous integration and deployment systems 
  • Scrum/Agile way of working is almost your second nature 
  • You understand and investigate what a user wants and feels 

Will be a plus

  • Knowledge of Clean (Onion) architecture and PaaS 
  • Experience in working with large codebases and custom frameworks

What we offer

  • To help you keep your money, we also chip in on your pension, pay for your travels and offer a discount on all the stuff we sell 
  • Room for you to do things your way 
  • Heartwarming help with the international relocation process from start to finish
  • Lots of things you can learn through our Coolcademy & skilled sparring partners.
  • 25 days of paid leave, as long as you promise to come back!
  • We like to inspire your passion giving you the opportunity to visit events 
  • An office in the heart of Rotterdam so there's plenty to do when you're not at work

Additional details

A day at the office

You open a pull request in GitHub for your last changes in the Javascript codebase of one of the back-end services for our new faceted-search functionality. You have fixed a bug in a de-serialisation method that was causing metadata to leak from JSON objects. Considering the large amount of simultaneous, relatively small requests these services process, Node.js seemed the obvious choice. So you had to abandon your usual work field of PHP and give the old Javascript another chance. Once again it proved itself a powerful language, capable of building beautiful stuff. Maybe the front-enders were right after all? Now that this has been tackled, you return to PHP. You had this idea to optimize the determination of the sorting order of the filters on the site...
