It includes data ingestion and management and internal tools.

    All the technical documentation aiming at providing an overview of our systems will be accessible in a developer portal called Backstage. This tool will help us list the applications, websites, and APIs we develop, as well as describing their ecosystem and tooling.

    • Ensure Backstage can provide value, and where;
    • Build tools and plugins to ensure using and administrating Backstage is as smooth as possible;
    • Provide a walkthrough to bring teams to use Backstage;
    • Support engineers to integrate Backstage in their applications ; 
    • Analyze tool usage and focus effort on the most valuable features.

    What we offer you

    • An opportunity to work on innovative products
    • Work in an European company and with teams in Belgium, France and Germany
    • A professional and stimulating environment where respect and team spirit are key values.
    • Opportunities for personal development and training
    • Autonomy, responsibility and motivating work.
    • Hybrid work policy and flexible working hours.
    • Dynamic, open and collaborative company culture.
    • The number one company in its market, a socially responsible company with a real impact on society (green teams, inclusion teams, charity work, digital accessibility for all).
    • An attractive salary package, in line with your experience
