Job Description

Mission of the Role

We are looking for you, a passionate software engineer with the capability to inspire and coach people to create great software. You have been in the trenches long enough to know that teams can only succeed as a unit in which everyone is part of the solution. That is why you look to pass on your technical excellence to empower as many around you as possible, so you can create the best solution to a problem together. You do not see yourself as being attached to a particular programming language, but as an inspiring polyglot that welcomes the chance to learn new programming languages best suited for the job.

You will: 

  • You will be responsible for technical design conforming to the platform architecture, quality, security and maintainability. While ensuring our solutions stay fit for purpose.

  • You will not be doing this alone but with engineers within your squad, who you will inspire and lead toward success, and other squads across the project.

  • You will ensure that work is carried out following the best practices you as a team have set and documented.

  • You will also maintain a laser sharp focus on delivery deadlines and combat the natural scope creep to be able to consistently deliver value to our clients on a regular cadence with an appropriate level of quality.

You have:

  • 7+ years of experience in engineering software, of which you spent a great deal being responsible for implementation throughout the entire stack.

  • Fluent in JavaScript and Typescript.

  • Experience building UIs using modern frameworks (React preferred but experience with other libraries/frameworks like Angular, Vue, Next.js, etc is transferrable).

  • Plenty of experience in building REST and/or GraphQL API’s so you know the caveats and (anti-)patterns.

  • Good understanding of Data layer in Applications, SQL, Postgres, BigQuery.

  • Experience working under CI/CD workflows.

  • Experience using git and working on a Merge/Pull Request based workflow.

  • An open and collaborative mindset both within and outside your team. Interest in helping other engineers become even better.

It would be a nice addition if you have:

  • Worked with distributed, data heavy applications running in the public cloud.

  • Experience or exposure to Data Pipelines (ETLs and etc).

  • Experience working in an environment with Data Science and Machine Learning models and pipelines.


  • Exciting work environment that brings people together.

  • Use the latest digital technologies.

  • Ongoing trainings to support your development.

  • Opportunities for personal and professional growth.

  • Great compensation and bonus scheme linked to individual performance and company results.

  • Flexible working hours and home office.


We are an ethical and honest company that is wholly committed to its clients and employees. We are proud to be an inclusive workplace for all and are committed to equal employment opportunity, focusing on all of our employees reaching their full potential. 

We respect and value every employee regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, personality, experience, culture, faith, socio-economic status, or physical or mental disabilities.

We endorse the core principles and rights set forth in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the Social Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, promoting the universal values of human dignity, freedom, equality, and solidarity.

At GfK we work collaboratively with our colleagues but offer a flexible working approach, including dividing our time between office & remote working as well as the opportunity to flex our working hours around team core hours.

We offer an exciting work environment that brings people together. We encourage an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit and make use of the latest digital technologies. We are looking for self-starters, who accept challenges and create solutions.

Can there be a better place to take center stage in the digital revolution? We are excited to get to know you!
