Backend Software Engineer | Technical Software

The function

As a Backend Software Engineer at ALTEN you work on underlying systems; from large consumer applications to small internal systems.

With your knowledge, you first assess whether a project question can be solved within an existing API, or whether a new API must be developed. You have an advisory role within your team in this. You determine which data you need, how you will shape the design of the API and of course you also implement the solution.

You work as a Backend Software Engineer on projects within the High-Tech sector. Within one project you will work on an autonomous underwater ROV and within the other project you will work with the backend on a Linux ARM platform. But you can also think of the backend for simulation software. You develop APIs for these applications and are also responsible for testing them.

You have experience and knowledge of:

  • The programming languages Java, C++ and/or .NET;

It is not a requirement, but you have an advantage if you have knowledge of:

  • Experience with Frontend development;
