Your (possible) career at Amplidata

  • You not only produce excellent code, but you also have to keep an eye on our products and how our customers will use them.
  • You start with the design of new and innovative software components, then develop and engineer them and execute unit tests. You provide input to the Quality Engineering Team, which is responsible for the integration and performance tests.
  • After 3 to 6 months we like to know your first work experience, what you like the most in your job, your integration in the team, if you need extra training and what you will be working on in the coming months. Amplidata does this to make you feel comfortable and to give your integration process a huge boost.
  • After 1 to 3 years, you can evolve into an “expert” software engineer in your domain, lead an offshore team or get involved in the world of testing and quality engineering.

What we expect from you

  • Software development is not just a job like any other job; it must be a passion for you. Besides the daily job, you have one or more ‘ICT pet projects’; you have at least 4 to 5 years relevant experience in a Linux, C++ and Object-Oriented design and development environment.
  • You like to regularly explore new technologies.
  • You have a Master degree in ICT and/or Electronics.
  • You have proven proficiency in operating systems, file systems, networks, databases and multi-threaded programming in Unix/Linux environments.
