Backend Software Engineer

The function

As a Backend Software Engineer at ALTEN you work on underlying systems; from large consumer applications to small internal systems. For example, you can think of an application in the home care sector or a management system for the staffing sector. You develop APIs for these applications and you are also responsible for testing them.

With your knowledge you first assess whether a project question can be solved within an existing API, or whether a new API needs to be developed. Here you have an advisory role within your team. You determine what data you need, how you are going to design the API and of course implement the solution.
