At Validaide you join an international team that supports our customers around the globe. As a fast growing company, we offer plenty of opportunities to further develop and grow your skills. We value your contribution, and we will support you where we can. 

Where you will work: We currently have a hybrid working model, and expect to maintain this in the future. Most team members  combine working at our office in Utrecht with working from home. Our office is close to Utrecht Central Station, and in walking distance of the historic city center.

Current Openings:
PHP/Symfony Developer

 

Validaide supports pharmaceutical logistics service providers in transporting valuable and sensitive pharmaceutical products using our data-sharing Capability Platform and data-driven Lane Assessments and Lane SOPs. The Corona pandemic and the resulting global vaccine distribution demonstrated that digitizing pharma logistics - and thereby saving valuable time to quickly deliver vaccines - has never been more important.

With Validaide we help to ensure that healthcare products can be delivered to patients around the world in good quality. Pharmaceutical manufacturers (Pfizer, Teva) and logistics service providers (DSV, Agility, Yusen, Hellmann, etc.) use Validaide to assess transportation risk and optimize their transportation and packaging decisions. We enable this by providing a new level of transparency into the services and capabilities across the global logistics industry using our Capability Platform, and by the creation and online collaboration of data-driven Lane Assessments and Lane SOPs.

We are looking for a full-time PHP developer to join our team who has good English skills, is a keen and eager learner, and has a fair grasp and interest in the PHP programming language and its eco-system. Ideally some background in using the Symfony framework (or comparable) is an added value. What we offer you is on-the-job mentoring by experienced developers, ample time during working hours and training budget to further grow your skills, and hands on work with our tooling and development approach, if you have an interest in that.

Validaide itself is a PHP Symfony application using Doctrine and Bootstrap for the front-end with a fair amount of JS tidbits (plain, jQuery, Vue). We have a local Mac OS / MAMP development setup, use GitHub repositories, a fully automated build pipeline in Jenkins, use Ansible for deployment, and a variety of other supporting tools. Noteworthy is also our extensive use of Behat to continuously maintain a fully tested application. This is necessary to develop fast in a reliable manner, but also to ensure we meet pharmaceutical guidelines and regulations (GAMP 5, 21 CFR Part 1).

We’re a 12-person company, and our agile development team currently consists of six members, including a dedicated test automation engineer and varying levels of experience. Our mindset towards development is this: we want to optimize our development speed whilst maintaining software quality. We achieve this with the following mantras: “good over perfect”, “don’t introduce a technology unless it is really needed”, “pragmatic DRY”, “be smart: use the right tools that can do the simple work for you instead of DIY (e.g. rector)”, “sometimes you got to write stuff down, dummy (Wiki, e-QMS)”, “integration/smoke tests over unit tests”, “be a {boy/girl/other}scout“, “Bug? Write a test!”, and many more!

You are :

  • A team player, well-versed in English, pragmatic and well-suited for a company of our size

  • Looking to contribute to something meaningful and interesting in our industry

  • Experienced in PHP; in particular Symfony XP is an added value

  • Experienced in front-end technologies (HTML, JS, CSS) and SQL databases

  • A quick learner, interested to develop yourself further as a professional

  • Living and eligible to work in the Netherlands, willing to grow with us for a longer period of time

 

What we offer:

  • Startup mindset, flat hierarchy, cooperative and supportive mentality

  • Diverse, international team (Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Iran, Frisia  )

  • Salary: ranging from 3.500,- EUR to 5.500,- EUR, depending on current skillset

  • Pension + expenses (home office, travel) + training budget

  • We plant trees on your behalf to compensate CO2 using Ecologi: https://ecologi.com/validaide

  • Most of us are a ‘digital nomad’ from time to time, e.g. visiting one’s home country for a bit
