Lunatech was founded in 1993 as an IT consulting, product research and development team. As a team of adept self-managing programmers, working with a very experienced commercial team, Lunatech has a successful track record of implementing medium-sized to large systems.
Lunatech is a challenging organisation with self-managing developers. In small teams they work on projects for customers, both from customer location and from their own office in Rotterdam. Lunatech doesn’t have account managers or project managers; our senior developers are responsible for successful delivery of their projects to their customers.
Lunatech builds custom software systems for their customers, with a focus on system integration, backend systems and custom dashboards. Lunatech is exclusively a JVM shop and has done a lot of Java over the last decade, and for the last couple of years they are also doing a lot of Scala. They are not tied to specific technologies, but look for what suits each project. To give a concrete example, they do a fair amount of Scala with Akka and Play framework and we often use Elastic Search, MongoDB, Postgres. Their source code is on GitHub.
Working at Lunatech
Lunatech professionals regularly work from customers’ offices because they believe that that’s the best way to discover their real needs. But on Fridays they all work from our Rotterdam office, which gives plenty of opportunity to share knowledge and have fun together. They spend part of all Fridays on getting better at what they are doing; we form study groups or book clubs on tech or books that interest us, or we experiment with new technology.
Lunatech is active in the community; they have conference speakers, published book authors, Typesafe certified Scala trainers, sponsor conferences and host a monthly meetup on functional programming in their office.
Lunatech offers an interesting work environment with many opportunities and responsibilities to pick up if you want. You’ll join a group of about thirty-five friendly developers with very little overhead. As a company, Lunatech values your knowledge and experience; they love to learn from their employees and they can also teach you a lot of things.
They offer a competitive salary and expenses-reimbursement and have a transparent bonus arrangement.
As an employee, you will be provided with a Macbook pro. Lunatech believes that you’re the best person to determine the software you want to work with, so they won’t enforce specific software upon you.
Where is Lunatech located?
Lunatech is located in the very heart of the vibrant city of Rotterdam. The office can be easily reached by public transport (train, metro, tram) and also has (limited) parking facilities.
