For our office in Vlissingen or Brussels we are looking for an ambitious senior software developer for our PHP projects.

Technical working environment Ibuildings

We use PHP and the Symfony Framework of Laravel for the robust backend. And frameworks like React, Vue and React Native for front-ends, PWA’s and mobile apps. For content management environments we use Drupal 8 (and 9) and JAMStack solutions.

We apply modern software development practices such as SOLID principles, OTAP streets with Vagrant, Docker and Continuous Integration and Deployment, and architectures such as microservices and hexagonal architecture.

About you

  • You’re a Software Engineer who likes to evolve.
  • You are familiar with methods such as TDD, BDD and DDD, in order to be able to use them where necessary.
  • You are familiar with Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment.
  • You are looking for nice colleagues around you; the people make the work and being able to work well together is at least as important as the work itself!

Do you recognize yourself in the above? Are you enthusiastic about the challenges involved in working with demanding and dynamic clients such as Strukton, RTL Nieuws, SURFnet, TCE and Volkers? And do you believe in an agile approach, in which you work together with the client? Then let’s get acquainted!

What do we offer?

  • Immediately a permanent contract.
  • Internal trainings and workshops, given by our own researchers.
  • Every year, together with your colleagues to several (PHP) conferences such as our conference Dutch PHP Conference, PHPBenelux or DDD Europe.
  • A workstation tailored to your needs: a laptop (Mac, Linux or Windows), keyboard and mouse of your choice, noise cancelling headphones and a sit/stand desk.
  • An environment where open source is important; contributions are stimulated and we also contribute with the necessary libraries.
  • Good secondary conditions such as 100% paid pension.
  • Of course the necessary holidays and a good salary. (depending on experience)

What do we expect from you?

First of all, a colleague who is eager to learn and enthusiastic:

  • Has at least 5 years of experience** in PHP and wants to broaden and/or deepen his technical skills, but above all wants to become a better software engineer.
  • Knowledge of the Dutch and English languages.
  • Works and thinks at HBO(+)/Bachelor level.

And that, just like us, with passion for technology, you like to make every project a success for the customer!


Curious about what Ibuildings has to offer you? Then get in touch quickly, call 088 00 24 000 or send an e-mail to!

The process runs in short as follows:

  1. We always plan a first meeting as soon as possible. Then we can look from both sides to see if there is a click.
  2. If the first conversation was pleasant for both of them, a small coding challenge will be sent to you. This will serve as input for the second interview where we will go into more depth.
  3. After this conversation we will let you know as soon as possible if we can make you an offer, preferably within a day.
    Our offer is directly a permanent contract.

Working at Ibuildings during the COVID-19 pandemic

Working FromHome Desk

At Ibuildings we work partly from home and partly at the office during this stage of the COVID-19 pandemic. We facilitate the tools and supplies to be able to work remotely and provide a good homework allowance for the most important expenses.

The application and onboarding process also looks a bit different than usual during this period. This means that we conduct job interviews online. And we have already gained quite some experience in online onboarding of our new employees. A warm welcome from a distance at Ibuildings!

Now that the lunch at the office and the in-person social team meetings are not happening, we keep in frequent contact via Slack or Google Meet and we have the best online social team meetings.
