Java software developer

Do you want to contribute with your talent and knowledge to the reduction of the consequences of climate change? Do you want to work on a leading software product that is used all over the world to warn people in time of floods and long-term droughts? You can at Deltares!

What can you expect as a Java software developer at Deltares?
On a daily basis, you will work with a team of 10 developers on the Delft-FEWS software platform. This platform runs all over the world and makes it possible to provide timely warnings in the event of flooding.

In cooperation with the client and our hydrologists, you will develop new back- and front-end components and improve existing solutions. You work with the languages Java 11, Typescript, XSD and JSON schema. You will work with tools such as Teamcity, Jira, Sonarqube, Intellij Jetbrains, VisualVM, JaCoCo, Java Flight Recorder, OWASP. We also work in the cloud with Azure, AWS, and Kubernetes. Furthermore, you help with maintenance and offer support to customers. In the meantime, you will be encouraged to gain knowledge and there is plenty of opportunity to contribute your own ideas and take Delft-FEWS to the next level.

What makes the job fun and challenging?
You will be working on a diverse product where you start with the development of simpler parts and grow to more complex parts . Because the product has been developed for 20 years with a lot of continuity in the team, there are very experienced colleagues from whom you can learn a lot. You are also close to the end users (national and international) of Delft-FEWS. You sometimes have to act quickly with urgent customer problems, but that gives the feeling your work really has added value.

Your team
You will work in a team that is very driven, and dedicated to the product they are developing and that is important, because the product must work 24/7 in the event of an imminent flood. If support is needed in those situations, this also requires good coordination and communication. If you have the same mindset, you will fit in well in this team.
Besides serious business, there is also plenty of room for fun and educational breaks. Besides team outings and drinks, we also work on the continuous improvement of our work process and the exchange of knowledge.
