    ?About AH Technology, food retail reinventors?

    AlbertHeijngoes way back. More than 130 years, to be exact. So, for millions of people, food shopping is synonymous with the AlbertHeijnbrand. We didn?t achieve this with a complacent, ?hey, if it works today, it?ll work tomorrow? approach, but by continually rethinking our propositions and staying plugged in to customer demands. Over 1,000 stores? Check. The leading online food retail platform? Check, we build it, we run it and we love it. ;-)

    So, what?s next? Accelerating our transition into a hybrid Food & Tech company is. We want to leverage data and technology to future-proof food shopping and make better food more easily accessible to everyone. At AH Technology, you team up with inspiring peers in the data, digital and tech domains. A community of diverse individuals who share a common goal; to create digital solutions that make shopping simpler and more inspiring, whether it is online or in our stores. Are you ready to reinvent the way millions of people buy and enjoy their food? We invest heavily in tech. And that includes investing in your career!

    What do we offer?

    The job

    As Tech Lead Full Stack (Java, Kotlin, Kafka, Kubernetes) you control how millions of customers pay every day – online and in our stores. You contribute directly to building a state of the art payment platform. A mission you won’t take on solo, but as a full-fledged member of the Payments team. You will work closely with our platform architect and the other teams (POS, Finance and checkout) to fit your ideas into the bigger picture.

    Together you strive to create an agile pressure cooker that can deliver new code with speed while keeping our stores up and running. You recreate our existing state in a rapidly changing environment, where today's brilliant idea can be past expiration date tomorrow. All while managing dependencies like a boss. Challenging enough? As for the setting: we actively promote autonomy and experimenting. Misadventures are learnings to be shared with your colleagues! Speaking of which, at AH Technology you work with the brightest minds in the data, digital and tech domains, so inspiration is never in short supply...

    Your team’s ‘shopping list’

    • 8+ years of relevant work experience. By relevant, we mean having touched architecture, or having refactored code within a comparably complex environment, during at least some of those years.?

    • Sharing your expertise and helping more junior team members to reach a higher technical level is something you enjoy doing.
