What the job is about

As a backend Software Engineer, your role involves expanding and enhancing our leading ‘Miles Enterprise’ solution. Miles offers a secure and cloud-native platform for automotive finance, leasing, fleet, and mobility management.  

Your expertise & experience are highly valued in our multidisciplinary agile product team. By mentoring and coaching the less experienced engineers, you will elevate the team to the next level. 

Furthermore, you will become part of our internal software engineering community, which connects Software Engineers from across the organization worldwide. This community provides a platform for learning from one another, sharing best practices, and fostering personal growth. 

Continuous learning and innovation are fundamental pillars of our company. We achieve this through an engineering culture that prioritizes code reviews and pair programming. These practices facilitate collaborative learning & drive innovation within our team. 

As a Senior Backend Software Engineer, you will contribute to the overall success of Sofico and help drive the company's commitment to delivering high-quality software solutions. 
Your responsibilities include: 

  • Translating domain models into (micro)service architectures. 

  • Collaborating with internal API consumers using a domain-driven-design approach and integrating with external systems through tasks such as database design, data access & ORMs. 

  • Developing scalable and cloud-native solutions, utilizing modern development and DevOps practices including CI/CD, containerization & automated testing. 

  • Prioritizing a security-first approach when implementing features and changes in the SSDLC (Secure Software Development Life Cycle) process. 

Your Skills

Join our team and leverage your expertise to contribute to the development of cutting-edge solutions while working with the latest technologies and frameworks in a collaborative environment. 

  • Seasoned experience (3+ years) as a backend engineer developing scalable, production-ready solutions using the Java stack and state-of-the-art frameworks, such as Quarkus or JEE, with a strong emphasis on microservices

  • Solid background in designing & implementing RESTful API microservice architectures. 

  • Ability to model data and queries based on feature requirements, with an emphasis on performance and scalability.  
    While expertise in SQL (specifically PostgreSQL) is essential, familiarity with other NoSQL datastore is a plus. 

  • Proficiency in DevOps with tools like Git, Maven, Jenkins or GitHub Actions is expected. 

  • Experience or knowledge of any other technologies such as Angular, Kafka, Docker/Podman, or Kubernetes would be considered a valuable asset. 

What we offer

We would like to welcome you to an international and multicultural company that has been operating for over 30 years and is doubling in size every 5 years. Growth is our middle name, while we strongly adhere to our horizontal and open company culture.  

You're in the drivers' seat of your own career, that's our motto. Your personal development is therefore paramount. During an extensive onboarding program of six months, we make you, with the support of your job coach, familiar with our product and the organization. Even after this period, you will continue to get opportunities to learn and develop yourself further. You’re never alone.  

At Sofico you will also work in a modern state-of-the-art office that is easily accessible. We have plenty of safe charging points for your electric car or bike, and free shared bicycles available to pick up your lunch.  

In return for your efforts, we offer an extensive salary package, including a company car with a fuel card, a bonus system, meal vouchers, and group and hospital insurance. Are you a sporty type? Bikelease is also one of the possibilities! The flexible office hours and opportunities to work from home provide the necessary flexibility within the company.  

At Sofico we are strong believers in the power of a good cup of coffee. Water or soft drinks are of course also on the menu. We love our team events. Think after-work drinks, a BBQ, a family day, a company weekend, or a walking dinner with the whole company.
