Your job

We are looking for an Software Engineer to join our international, multicultural, Software Development team, currently consisting of six other developers. You will be responsible for the design, build and maintenance of secure portals/apps, as well as integrated solutions that are built on Java technology. Presently, this includes WebCenter Portal, Oracle JET, Oracle AutoVue and Fishbowl. If you don’t currently have knowledge of these frameworks/products, this is not a problem as we can provide full training. However, you must have experience of building portals in another relevant Java-based platform. This should not only be web-based, but preferably in relation to mobile apps and offline portals too. Since these portals integrate data from various ERP, PLM, CRM and other systems or (cloud-based) services, it is important to learn and develop an overview of the complete IT landscape. The portals support different business processes within Royal IHC. In the near future, the portal will also support our external customers. You will enjoy regular contact with your colleagues in the IT organisation and throughout IHC. You will also have a passion for creating smart new solutions in a dynamic organisation. In this role, you will be responsible for:

  • connecting IHC applications (on office-based servers or in the cloud)
  • gaining an understanding of our business processes and building smart solutions to support them
  • acting as the change owner for the adaptations you propose
  • managing the implementation of changes and overseeing the people required to support you in achieving them
  • fixing incidents according our service level agreements 
  • changing applications via our change management process (Agile/Scrum).

Your profile

To be eligible for the position of Software Engineer, you must have:

  • a HBO level of education in Information Technology
  • knowledge of Java, html, xml, css, Java scripting and source control
  • experience of Oracle WebCenter Portal, JET and/or AutoVue (desirable)
  • strong problem-solving skills with a high degree of creativity 
  • a highly motivated approach and be a natural networker
  • the ability to be flexible, adjust to project demands and take the initiative 
  • a committed attitude towards delivering the optimal service/product
  • experience in the manufacturing industry (desirable)
