Keeping up with the future of work requires ever changing, ever innovating technologies. Our java developers and the software they build play a vital role in connecting our workforce, optimizing our processes and enabling us to stay ahead. Read more about our java teams, environment and daily life at Randstad below.

java development at randstad.

As the world of work changes, so do we. Continuing to innovate also means looking critically at the technologies we work with, making strategic decisions about our stack and making sure our developers have the tools they need. As such, Java has become an integral and unmissable part of our environment.

Our java developers work on a multitude of products and microservices. A candidate portal with complex filters that lets people find a job they actually love? Of course! Completely overhauling our backoffice systems with newly developed microservices? Why not! Making sure our systems and processes are not just more reliable but also more flexible in a complex world of contracts, legislation and compliance? Absolutely! 
All of this doesn’t just keep randstad running every day - both our staff and our applications support companies throughout all layers of Dutch society, making sure your groceries make it home and your luggage onto a plane. 

our stack.

As java developer at randstad your role can vary. Java is a core part of many of our 36 scrum teams, giving you the opportunity to contribute to a large number of different applications and projects. No matter which of those you choose to work on, it all starts with a close collaboration between developers, tech leads, product owners and business analysts. End-user centric development informs all of our technological decisions, giving you the opportunity to translate real world problems into solutions. 

Working agile and according to devops also means we are continuously improving and deploying. Whether you are adding a new filter in elasticsearch, phasing out legacy software in favour of new microservices or building an improved candidate portal in bloomreach. You have a direct line to our cloud and infrastructure services team. You’re deploying a new feature but the left server is still not doing what you want? No worries, the cloud team is just a google chat away.

You like large scale change and innovation, as well as greenfield projects? Great! Some of our developers are currently building the new foundations of our back-office processes, giving you the opportunity to use your knowledge and experience to shape this. Back-office sounds boring? Think again - our developers navigate a complex web of personal data, compliancy and legislation. Layers of variables that need to be processed in a way that a very real human has their salary paid out, their pension paid into and their holiday allowance allocated. 

On a more technical level, as we make the transition to working under global architecture, we also explore new technologies. What opportunities does dockerizing give us, or kotlin? What are the advantages and disadvantages of object oriented vs event driven development?

our java teams. 

Our java developers contribute to various teams in a number of different domains or tribes. They are also part of an overarching chapter. The chapter is focused on connecting experience and knowledge across teams, sharing ideas and continuing to develop the maturity of development within our organisation.
