Fulltime / parttime

About Bitonic

In April 2012 Bitonic was the first in the Netherlands to start offering (automated) Bitcoins via iDEAL. After that we expanded our services with our Bitcoin exchange BL3P, a Bitcoin savings service (Bits), an informative platform: bitcoin.nl and the Bitonic Academy.

Bitonic's mission statement is: Bitcoin for everyone. As such, our team is passionate about providing an accessible and convenient service for buying and selling Bitcoins.

Bitonic's organizational structure is based on the principles of Holacracy consisting of self-managing circles. This system makes a flat organizational structure which values each opinion equally. The work-culture within Bitonic offers a lot of freedom to fulfill your role in the way you think is best and gives the possibility to bring your ideas to the table and work those out.

Fullstack developer at Bitonic

In this role, you will be responsible for the (further) development of our flagship product, bitonic.nl. Through the website, customers can buy and sell bitcoins and access their own digital environment.

Currently, we are in the process of developing an MVP for a new service, which will be your main focus.

Our main product has been in existence for 10 years and contains legacy code that has evolved over time. For this position, we are not seeking a developer to completely rebase the entire website, but rather someone who will build upon the current codebase.

  • You have experience with native JavaScript, HTML/CSS, React, Twig, Sass/Less, Yarn, and Webpack
  • Experience with Atomic design is a plus
  • Experience with PHP (Laravel) is a must
  • You are not afraid of dealing with legacy code and see it as a challenge
  • You have a keen eye for UI/UX
  • You live in the Netherlands and are able to come to our office in Amsterdam regularly
  • We operate in a sophisticated production environment utilizing Docker and Git(lab). Experience with these platforms is a plus
