Who are we and why should you care?

Teamleader is a SaaS scale-up founded in 2012 in Ghent, Belgium and since 2022, part of the Visma Group. Our goal is to automate and simplify work for small and medium European businesses. With Teamleader Focus, we simplify work for small businesses by offering an all-in-one solution for CRM, project management and invoicing. Teamleader Orbit, acquired in 2019, focuses on helping medium-sized agencies thrive. In 2022, we acquired Vectera, which provided our Customer Meeting add-on.

We're looking for a Software Engineer to join us on our mission

As an experienced Software Engineer (frontend) at Teamleader:

  • You are a key member of a feature team and responsible for providing the front-end, user-facing aspect of a feature or initiative. You turn functional challenges and acceptance criteria into skilfully crafted and accessible UI solutions.

  • Not only that, but you use your experience to pinpoint bugs, bad coding patterns, identify risks and come up with solutions.

  • Once you get used to the Teamleader way of doing things, you make suggestions to improve the process and code quality.

  • You participate in technical design discussions, both within your team and with other teams, to come up with solutions for common problems.

  • You coach more junior developers through pair programming sessions, code reviews... or just by asking them the right questions.

  • Furthermore, you maintain a critical eye towards potential API improvements.

  • You monitor the build, test and deploy pipeline to make sure your team's work ends up in our customers' hands swiftly and adequately

Why others chose Teamleader: we are lively, not corporate

We have the energy and boldness of a start-up and the expertise and pragmatism of a scale-up. The result: a team of both young and seasoned professionals led by supportive and approachable managers who give recognition and rewards for hard work. You’ll be working in a fast-paced tech environment with open feedback culture and room for initiatives as well as ideas. You’ll have plenty of room to apply your personality, express yourself, and impact our course of action with your insights or ideas.

On top of that, you’ll get:

  • An extensive training budget

  • A hybrid working model: a pleasant mix of office and home working. 

  • A personal tooling budget, to make working from home as comfortable as from our offices.

  • Daily budget-friendly in-house prepared lunch and dinner options in our Ghent office, as well as Free Food Fridays, Friyays and numerous sport initiatives!

  • Competitive and market-conform salary with compensations and benefits, including mobility options.

  • 32 holidays on top of the standard public ones! (based on full-time employment in Belgium)

  • Our long-lasting dedication to employee well-being, just take a look at our career page and Instagram to see how we keep the Team(leader) spirit going.

We value diversity

Our ambition is to build and sell a product that helps everyone everywhere (starting with Europe) to work smarter, so we want our team to reflect that, too. We believe a diverse, inclusive working environment is crucial to realise that ambition, so we are committed to continue to build and cherish a culture where every colleague feels welcome, appreciated and heard.

Job requirements

You’d be a great fit for this role, if you 

  • You have around 5 years of experience as a software developer, and you have demonstrable experience in product development or identical experience in other companies.

  • You have in-depth, hands-on experience with modern web development frameworks, preferably React, and/or as a thorough understanding of Single Page Applications built using Typescript. Other relevant frameworks: Angular and Vue.js.

  • You use your experience to pinpoint bugs, do root cause analysis, detect bad coding patterns, identify risks and come up with skillfully crafted (template) solutions.

  • You are a craftsperson which takes pride in code quality, excellence of delivery, documentation and refactors.

  • You run feasibility checks on multiple ideas or potential solutions and help prioritizing within the team.

  • Strong bonus points: experience in SaaS product design and delivery, some PHP knowledge or Python experience. If you prefer full-stack, we’ll happily accommodate.

  • You are a team player, of course, but are also not afraid to speak your mind strongly and convincingly to get your point across.

  • You have good communication skills, able to express yourself fluently and friendly in English, spoken and written.

  • You aspire technical excellence but are able to balance this with pragmatic reasoning.

  • You ensure the stability and quality of the product’s functionality by creating and maintaining automated end-to-end tests in Playwright.

  • You are able to express yourself fluently and friendly in English, spoken and written.
