Platform engineer – Basic-Fit – Tilburg

  • Tilburg


Do you want to help build Europe’s largest technology driven gym? It seems simple: automate as many processes as possible so that our customer satisfaction remains high and costs low. But behind this strategy hangs a complex roadmap with innovations that serve members hyper-efficiently. For our IT teams in Tilburg and Hoofddorp we are looking for a Platform engineer who gets energy from building solutions with a lot of impact.

This is what your assignment looks like

As a platform engineer you are responsible for providing a platform with which the development teams can independently develop and host software. You create an “internal developer platform” that covers the operational needs of an application’s entire lifecycle. Through your solution, development teams can focus on developing the application and do not have to worry about the best way to configure development tooling and cloud environments. You take into account security, availability and scalability, because our apps and websites must be securely available 24/7 for our more than 3 million members.

As a Platform Engineer you contribute to the tooling and cloud strategy that fits within the overarching IT strategy of Basic-Fit. You work closely with the Software Development Manager and are an important sparring partner for internal and external stakeholders of the developer platform.

What are you going to do:

Developing and maintaining the internal developer platform including roadmap, architecture and documentation, in close collaboration with IT stakeholders;

Improve the internal developer platform by leveraging existing technology, building new technology, or evaluating and integrating third-party solutions;

Proactively identify, evaluate, promote and explain new technologies and developments;

Guiding and coaching team members in the projects in which solutions are built, so that the development of these solutions is in line with the roadmap and architecture.

Providing documentation and training of the users, so that users can easily get the most out of the developer platform.

For this we are looking for a new colleague with an enterprising and result-oriented attitude, who likes to get things done and wants to be part of a growing and ambitious team.

Our promise:

Basic-Fit is a young, dynamic and rapidly growing organization with a clear mission and we are now the largest fitness chain in the Netherlands. Outside the Netherlands we have clubs in Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Spain. We believe that sports should be affordable and accessible so that everyone who wants to get fit can get fit. Our goal is to further professionalize and grow in the coming years. For this we need enthusiastic and driven colleagues who help us achieve our goals. We do not select by color, we only ask you to embrace our orange color.

What can you expect from us:

An informal (jeans and sneakers are welcome), international (multiple cultures working with us) and friendly working atmosphere;

Plenty of room for own initiatives and career opportunities;

Unlimited access to GoodHabitz’s online training courses;

Participation in pension scheme;
