Backend developer – Scala – engineer (medior & senior)

Location: Den Haag

Type: Full Time


You’re an enthusiastic Scala engineer who wants to make a difference. You’re looking for an ambitious and international team in The Hague. And we’re looking for a backend developer like you. Your contribution is going to enable The Netherlands to further digitalise and say goodbye to paper administration.

Whether you have plenty experience or no experience but plenty knowledge, you are welcome at Cleverbase. We use Domain Driven Design to tend to our business domain (Qualified Information Exchange) and develop software based on pure functional Scala (cats, cats-effect, fs2, Akka) in a microservices architecture. Because European legal standards challenge us to hone in on code quality and auditability, we are looking for a trustworthy backend developer that has an eye for aspects like these. 

Working as a backend developer at Cleverbase

As Qualified Trust Service provider, Cleverbase is licensed to issue PKI certificates within the Public Key Infrastructure of the Dutch government. With our products, you can log in, exchange information and sign documents on the highest eIDAS security level. After a one-time registration, you can, for example, digitally sign their deed of purchase with the same legal power as a signature on paper. Completely safe, with your own phone and pin code. 

During pressure cooker sessions, design sprints and in our labs, we develop prototypes to quickly discover how we can turn concepts into actual, valuable products and services. That’s how, in three days, we enabled Noria to digitally sign a European tender.

Demand for our products is high and our organisation is growing quickly. Working at Cleverbase means contributing to a safe digital environment. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and celebrate our successes together, but we’re far from done. That is why we are looking for an ambitious Scala engineer like you to come and help us.
