Upcoming.nl - Amsterdam, NL (No remote, but we'll relocate you) - Full Stack Engineer

Upcoming is a Dutch 'listicle' website (a listicle is an article consisting of a list of funny/informational/sentimental/whatever stuff). We've been growing continuously since we launched in 2013, already reaching 15% of the Dutch population with zero € spent on marketing. We're (an independent) part of Telegraaf Media Groep, one of the biggest publishers of The Netherlands.

We use python in the backend (Flask, Celery+RabbitMQ), and manage the frontend with Jinja2, jQuery, LESS and Grunt; persistence is done with MySQL and Redis. The deployments are automated, in a Continuous Integration environment. Our backend is developed in-house, with state-of-the-art publishing related features (monitoring of 1000's of feeds to detect trending articles, headline and thumbnail A/B testing, advanced CTR optimizers...).

Since we're part of a big media group, some of these tools are now being used by other teams, reaching tens of millions of users every day.

We'd like to bring on board a pragmatic developer. A CS degree helps, but relevant web experience is more important for us. We'd love it if you have spent some time across the whole stack, but if you consider yourself "just" a frontend or backend developer, we'll hear you out too.

We offer:

- A perfect balance between working on innovation projects and “regular” web development, both with short and iterative development cycles.

- The flexibility and dynamism of working in a startup, with the strong stability of being part of a big company.

- An international environment

- Relocation assistance

- A competitive salary

- 25 vacation days

- Amsterdam! You’ll be living in one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
