Full-stack Java developer

Region Brussel

We are looking for a Full stack developer to strengthen our ‘Eagle’-squad. This team is building a dashboard to visualize and map our IT landscape (get it... eagle? :-)). The goal is for every colleague in IT to keep an overview on internal connections between teams, connections with applications, project statuses etc., from his or her position and at all times. As a Full stack developer you will primarily help in building the tool's back-end, but you will also be shaping the front-end part.

  • How can you make a difference? Initially, your main focus here is the back-end Java software development. Java 8 (or higher) holds no secrets from you. You flawlessly combine this experience with front-end knowledge. HTML, CSS, Javascript, responsive web design,… are all part of your toolbox.

  • Squad? Different profiles, one TEAM. Different projects, one goal, one mission! As a team you are responsible for the design, low-level architecture, build, QA testing and delivery of software. We live by the baseline: ‘you build it, you run it’.


  • Must-have knowledge: Java, databases, REST, HTML, CSS and Responsive web design

  • Nice-to-have knowledge: Maven, Spring, Hibernate, ReactNative

  • At least equally (or maybe even more) important than your technical understanding, is your experience with the following: ORM, Document store, Inversion of Control, AOP, DDD,...

  • Agile mindset and experience with Scrum or other agile methodologies

  • Curious and open-minded

  • Critical; always looking for the 'why' of things

  • Passionate about development and always focused on quality

  • Team-oriented – going for victory together

  • You draw energy from working in a high-tech and continuously innovating environment (did you know that we're switching to an AWS cloud?).

  • You will be working at a leading company bustling with fun colleagues. Like you, they are passionate about digital and offline media and are continuously learning new things from each other and from the best in the trade. You are set out on a journey where every next week will be different from the last, and where you are stimulated on a daily basis to take things to the next level.

  • You will help in shaping the news media of the future and are given the opportunity to keep reinventing yourself in an environment where continuous learning is the benchmark. All of this through trainings (internal and external), guild meetings, online courses, experiments,... You decide where the journey takes you, with maximum support from us.
