Solution architect   Almere - full time (32-40 hours)

Your job as Solution Architect

As Solution Architect you will ultimately be responsible for the architecture of one or more web applications that we develop. Our clients are always closely involved with our development and you will cooperate with them directly. Our motto is: “We don’t simply build what the clients asks, but we build what the client needs”. In addition to functional requirements, you will also have to take non-functional requirements, like security and performance, into account.

You will always be involved in multiple projects and project teams can vary from two to as many as are needed, based on the size and planning of the project. To realise the design, you will lead your team of front-end and back-end developers. You will also be responsible for a portion of the development work yourself in the capacity as tech lead of the project.

Because everybody works on multiple projects at the same time, we try to minimse the impact of context switching. We do this by standardising our tech stack between projects as much as possible including, amongst other things, Groovy and Grails, which are based upon Java and Spring. We also use Micronaut, a modern JVM-based framework.

Are you a Solution Architect that stays up to date with the latest developments, has a passion for technology and are you a guardian of the quality of the code that you are responsible for? Do you like to challenge yourself and others to come up with a better solution? Do you like getting things done? Then we would love to hear from you!

Knowledge requirements
  • Java 8 (or more recent)
  • Spring, Grails (or another DI Framework)
  • Hibernate (or another ORM)
  • PostgreSQL (or another SQL RDBMS)
  • HTTP, REST
  • Git (or another SCM)
Preferred knowledge
  • GitLab (or another CI platform)
  • YouTrack (or another issue tracker)
Who are we?

Geckotech is a software development company that makes cool software. Our 15 employees develop custom applications for diverse clients, in various branches like construction, media, marketing and pharmaceuticals. Our approach to software development is agile, with a focus on early releases and continuous development and improvement. Our service spans the whole software development cycle, from the first analysis and planning, to the design, execution, testing, release and maintenance thereof.

We believe that development should be fun and therefore, our goal is to work on projects that are interesting and enjoyable to work on.

What are we not looking for?
  • Someone who develops what is asked of them by the client, without thinking through the consequences that that might have for the end product
  • Someone who comes up with a problem for a solution
  • A leader who leads from an ivory tower
(Remote) work

At Geckotech we are proud of our office culture. Going to work must be enjoyable and that means, amongst other things, that we have a game room with a foosball table and an arcade game. We work on projects that we enjoy ourselves and at the end of the day there is always room for a drink. We have a shower in the office, allowing you to exercise either on their way to work, or during your break in the park nearby.
We love being in the office but realise that our employees (and not just the office itself) are the core of our business. As a result, this job is also available on a (partly) remote basis, although we find it important and enjoyable to see everyone at the office at least some of the time.

Terms of employment
  • Competitive salary
  • Full time (40/32 hours)
  • 25 days vacation
  • Laptop (MacBook Pro)
  • Flexible working hours
  • Sufficient parking at the office
