Wat ga je doen?

PostNL is a logistical tech company. As Software Engineer TypeScript you will be joining an organisation in which data, technology and a innovative engineering culture are the key to success. PostNL wants to be “digital at the core” and we are boosting the development of our own logistics software. In this role as Software Engineer you will be part of our Field Services team, contributing to further improvement of our platform. This business critical platform is not only responsible for processing millions of real-time data events between all the Apps, but also contains the business logics that tells what functions the Apps need to perform. Our Apps are always up and running and seamlessly align with the daily work of our deliverers. And our deliverers are counting on this, so that they can do their job with pleasure and deliver parcels with a smile on their face. When it comes to our “Last Mile delivery” services we are booking huge progression. In the upcoming year we will onboard all our logistical operators, making sure they are all using the same apps off our platform. 


What is your role? 
You will be adding your engineering skills and knowledge to develop logistics software, with focus on the stability, scalability and security of the Field Services platform. For this we are making use of the latest (serverless) AWS technologies, with Typescript and based on Event-driven Architecture. In our domain we strongly believe in gathering user feedback, working towards milestones and for you to actually experience yourself how your software works in the field.
