Development at Coolblue
Over time we have learned that being successful as a company is not possible without smart IT. Our developers have one thing in common: they work hard to deliver value to our customers.
At Coolblue we don’t outsource our solutions if they provide us with a competitive advantage. Therefore, we keep all of our important processes in-house, and when you work for us, you’ll have the opportunity to personally make our logistics, our stores, our web shops and our financial processes even better.
We work in Scrum teams to ensure constant feedback and improvement and we aim to deliver new improvements daily.
What our developers love at Coolblue:
Coolblue - Anything for a smile
Who we are
Coolblue is one of the largest online shops in the Netherlands & Belgium, and has only one goal: Making customers smile. Some smiles come easily, some take a little extra effort, but at Coolblue it's all in the details. We charge no shipping costs for our orders. We send our customers a text message as soon as their order has been packed and shipped. We answer all questions on social media within 30 minutes. Making customers happy is in our DNA.
In the last 20 years, Coolblue has grown into a company employing over 3500 enthusiasts, who generate an annual turnover of over a billion Euros. Coolblue people are young – 28 years on average – extremely motivated and frankly, a bit unconventional. Struck with a good idea? We will give you the means and the opportunity to work on it. Based in our head office in Rotterdam, we work hard in small teams to improve our processes. Just a little better, every single day.
Coolblue was created in 1999 by Pieter, Paul & Bart, in a bar in Rotterdam. Three Business students who were fond of MP3 players decided to start their own web shop, with two goals in mind: to become millionaires and to create a company that other companies sets a new standard in customer service. Within a couple of years Coolblue has turned into an award-winning company, praised for its surprising ways of amazing customers with our obsessive focus on service.

After a cup of coffee your daily stand-up starts. One team member tells the team that he is working on speeding up the start-up time of the Android app. Another team member wants to join him. You ask if they need help with it but they don't need your help at this time and they plan some time to pair program together. You work together with a team member on adding alternative products to the product page. After you collaborate and create a plan, you quickly get to work and start writing the logic and the tests.
After your lunch walk it's time for your one-on-one with a team member. She's having issues trying to explain to the Product Owner why we want to start using GraphQL and she's asking for your help. You discuss how she can approach this best and after the session she directly talks to the Product Owner about it.
At the end of the day, it's time to unwind. You propose to shoot some pool with a few team members. Now, how to hit that eight ball—corner pocket?
