Software Engineer

full-time RAET Madrid

Are you passionate about IT, and want to build cool stuff that has an impact on how many people work day by day? Do you get a kick from developing state-of-the-art software?

Are you up for a real challenge, and are you – or do you have the potential to become – a really world-class software engineer or IT professional? Then please read on, because this may be the opportunity you have been craving for….

Raet is a leading software firm and cloud solutions provider (SAAS) with more than 1.7 Million users. Headquartered in the Netherlands, Raet’s “Youforce” platform helps more than 1500 clients with Human Capital Management (HCM) – ranging from standard payroll for about 25% of the entire Dutch workforce to advanced eHRM (Human Resource Management) applications that enable global clients to find, hire and further develop their talent and succeed in tomorrow’s economy.

As a member of a self-organizing Scrum team, you help decide how work is addressed and optimally distributed among the team members. While keeping a focus on delivering committed results as a team, you assume full responsibility for delivering your assignments – and are fine to assist with or to take over tasks originally assigned to other colleagues.

You feel responsible towards end-users, and reach out when they need your help. You make full use of the freedoms given to “do your thing” and to be innovative in creating new technology, but stick fully to common promises made towards your colleagues & the organization. At the same time, you help improving our best practices – and are constantly looking to make them even better.

Especially from senior Software Engineers, we expect them also to:
– guide and coach team-members as subject matter expert;
– design information, application and technical architectures – adhering to and improving Youforce’s enterprise architecture;
– design and develop new systems or drastically enhance existing ones, in close collaboration with other team members incl. the Product Owner – this includes determining program requirements and procedures for software maintenance;
– report on progress of work to Scrum Master;
– participate in knowledge “guilds” and actively share and develop knowledge on software development, professional development, software quality, new technology, new tools and techniques and training.
Technical skills we look for include (ideally you possess these – or you have a demonstrated ability to acquire them fast, and excel in using/applying them):

Hands-on experience with XP engineering practices and scrum;
– advanced expertise in at least several of the following: ASP .NET, C#, SQL Server, Javascript.
If you combine this expertise with a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral degree, then this will be a plus that will be fully recognized. However, some of you may have acquired world-class expertise in another manner, and that is also fine. In addition, any previous experience with HCM software is an asset.

Finally, and of utmost importance, we are looking for team members who share our mindset & core values: SMART, helpful, conscious, expert & reliable. You have a strong commitment towards quality of work – and realize that quality code comes in the first place from having the right mindset – and embrace transparency.
