Our work tells our story

Not just talking about it, but doing it! As a team, but with your own responsibilities and freedom that comes with the job. Every day new things to learn in complex online and mobile projects and solutions for (inter)national clients like Rabobank, Knab, Cembra Money Bank, Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance, Aruba Bank, Achmea and Unirobe Meeùs Groep. The world that our clients live in changes rapidly. Through digital improvements we make sure our clients stay ahead and in control of these changes.

We have a unique combination of extensive experience in finance and the digital world, both from a business perspective and technology. We have 110+ colleagues in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Sofia and Zürich. Complexity and innovative solutions, every day. We work with a team of enthusiastic and fun professionals, experts within their specific domain. Together, they can make anything work! This is our story; we are curious about yours.

What’s your story?

Within a team of about 5-10 colleagues, you as a lead developer / architect, play an important role developing and implementing our client solutions. Closely working with our designers, analysts, developers and testers, you are responsible for the solution and/or application architecture, and always ensuring client benefits are achieved. You translate the client’s needs into solutions, where possible based on Virtual Affairs software products or IP and reusable components and frameworks. Solutions that mostly include the Sitecore Experience Platform. It’s not just about providing the best technical solution, but keeping in mind the needs of the digital marketer and content manager as well. As a lead developer you are familiar with CMS-systems and web development in general and you are able to adopt new techniques and technologies quickly.

What kind of assignments will you get? Recently Achmea International launched a new online insurance platform under the name Onlia in Slovakia. A multi-site (countries and languages) platform which provides the marketers the capabilities to service their customers in a very flexible and personal way, without too much IT dependencies. Virtual Affairs was responsible for the implementation and realization of the front-end platform, including the integration with the backend systems. This new online insurance company was live within nine months, based on our own insurance software product, called InsuranceRight. This is just one of the many leading assignments we have been and are providing to our customers. Because most of our clients are in the financial business, confidentiality, integrity, security, reliability and performance are of a great importance in our daily work. Our solutions are therefore tailored to address the important aspects. During our projects and solution implementations, you will work in an agile, scrum based environment. This means that you’re not just working for the client, but truly collaborate with them.

Your story at Virtual Affairs

Your passion is technology and you are working for over five years as a (lead) developer with Microsoft technologies like, C#, ASP.NET (MVC). You are also familiar with web technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript frameworks, SQL server and MongoDB. Next to this, you have proven experience with building websites/web applications based on a CMS-system. Proactively giving advise and sharing your knowledge is in your nature. Based on your experience, you know how to advice and convince your colleagues and our clients on solution design and development topics. Can’t find a solution? You won’t let go until there is an appropriate one.

We develop long term solutions. They are complex, but this is just the challenge you are looking for and they don’t scare you easily.
