Junior Backend Developer bij Greenhouse Innovation


Noord-Holland, Landelijk



Greenhouse Innovation is looking for an ambitious, entrepreneurial back-end developer with System & Administration experience, that helps us pave the way forward. You've been around the block in Back-end Land, but good is not yet good enough and your view is broader: you don't hesitate to show your skills in other disciplines and enjoy bringing the team to a higher level.


You'll help us extend & harden our backend infrastructure, help us make the jump to scaling it architecturally, server-wise, database-wise, storage-wise and code-wise.

You can help us streamline our database storage and retrieval for working on a globally scalable level, and maintain and improve our servers and toolsets both for internal and external use through the application of good tools and smart technologies.

And last but not least, you have a choice; either working as one of the pioneers in starting and setting up our new office in Barcelona or work in the Netherlands at our headquarters in Amsterdam! The choice is yours, let’s discuss!

Buzzwords to help you decide

MySQL meets NoSQL, Java, Tomcat, XML, JSON, HTTP, REST, Jersey, OAuth, async programming, map/reduce, scalability, security, Apple PNS/Google Cloud messaging, Cloud providers (Amazon AWS in particular), scripting (bash, python etc) and Linux/Unix knowledge is a must!

We're proud of all our products, but in particular;

  •  Selly: Our retail platform (http://www.sellyamsterdam.com) that features apps, backend & websites where we bring together real retailers and consumers
  •  Snipperwall: Leading the social conversation platform (www.snipperwall.com)
  •  Snipper: the one minute social video app (http://www.getsnipper.com)

This job posting allows you to work in these projects (and others on the horizon)
