Taken en verantwoordelijkheden

Why you want this job!

As a Lead Back-End Developer at ANWB for our “Onderweg” App, you are the driving force that will make things happen. You initiate, monitor and guide the full chain of development in the domain of traffic, roadside assistance, refueling and parking. From user story (business/user demand) towards the feedback loop of the final application.   

Your work reaches hundreds of thousands users, as you make sure these applications run smooth and stay relevant by continuously adding value. This way Julia won’t notice the integration and transition of another third party when she uses the parking application. To her it is business as usual, parks her car, has her lunch meeting, drives off and gets charged for the actual time she was parked (without having to sign off her parking spot).

As a Lead Back-End Developer you will get a lot of questions we can’t back up with solutions right away. However, you are resourceful and like to take the bull by the horns and solve those challenging issues. You will translate the business demand towards our tech colleagues. From there you will guide and manage the project to a point where you find yourself in the feedback loop, in which you set new requirements for the application or introduce new tech. By delegating and enabling others, you’ll set them up for success

As a Lead Back-End Developer for our “Onderweg” App you’ll experience huge freedom to shape and mold your vision on the way we adopt and integrate the latest tech developments. We strive to be “the best app out there” with the highest quality and reliability we can offer to millions of users. Therefore “if the tech solves the problem, we’ll adopt it!

As the list of applications is growing, you will have to divide your time to multiple user stories simultaneously in different areas such as: on trip, road assistance (wegenwacht), parking, refueling, and electrical vehicle (EV) loading. You might find yourself in a situation where you formulate the story around the use of display panels in the “on trip application” during a meeting with a product owner in the morning. By lunch you’ll monitor the quality of a smooth transition of a third supplier in the parking application, and you’ll spend the rest of the afternoon setting up new requirements in the Realtime availability of EV chargers. The next day you will start with developing an application scheduled for this weeks sprint.

In the end a role in which you’ll be challenged to be our personal “wikipedia”, stimulate continuous development and improvement and make sure all applications run smooth.
