We keep exploring new web technologies and improving our system and we would like you to participate as Backend Developer. You’ll be a part of a dedicated team of back- and front-end developers and you'll get a lot of freedom to explore new technologies. Your opinion and view on how to handle things best are much appreciated. And it is important that you’re capable of creating an effective and high-quality codebase.

What you can expect from us

You cannot only expect a competitive salary but also a great and inspiring working environment. We just moved into our brand-new office where we will provide you every day with a healthy lunch. In addition to work, we find the necessary relaxation important, that is why we offer you company massages, a discount on a gym subscription & Ping Pong competitions. In addition to that, you will be part of our monthly ViriCiti Updates with snacks and drinks and other company events such as our legendary annual ViriCiti weekend and our Christmas party.


About us

We started our adventure 7 years ago by building an efficient and scalable platform based on Node.js. Our platform provides data-insights that operators use to extend the range of their vehicles, eliminate emissions and optimize electric operations. Since then, we have grown into the market leader in the US and Europe and have landed large projects all around the globe! Our ambition is high but the atmosphere in our team is informal and relaxed. We work hard and play hard. And we not only like to play games to set our minds off things but also to go for drinks on Friday to share successes and other stories. In our team of various nationalities, we make sure everybody feels at home at our office in Amsterdam.
