The role and the team

Appical is the creative and effective platform for onboarding, engaging and retaining employees. We power the world’s best employee experiences by making it easy for our customers to create workflows, build employee journeys and improve connections. Appical is experiencing substantial global growth, in which we strive for continuous innovation and improvement of our products. We are looking for a Team Lead development to provide technical leadership in all aspects regarding our Appical platform. If you constantly strive for excellence, are passionate about innovation, and want to work with a collaborative, energetic team – then Appical is looking for you!

As the Team Lead development, you will lead and develop the technical team, in which you align with the vision for the development of product enhancements. You will be the go-to person for the company’s technology challenges.


Your daily responsibilities:

  • Develop technical team and make technical choices aligned with the rest of the product strategy

  • Guide the technical elements for the platform

  • Motivate, coach, and develop team members for high performance (we have a team of 5 developers in The Netherlands and working together with an offshoring partner)

  • Use stakeholders’ feedback to inform necessary improvements and adjustments to technology

  • Consult with the development team to assess feature implementation visibility and time consumption

Align with Roy (CPO) and Sweder (Head of Product) regarding product developments, strategy, and features concerning the development team.


The ideal candidate

… doesn't really exist of course, but let us show you what we think you need to have to be the ideal candidate (don't hold back to apply if you only thick most of the boxes):

  • Proven experience as a developer and experience as a team lead

  • At least a bachelor's degree

  • Ability to conduct technological analyses and research

  • Worked for a SAAS startup / scale-up before would be great

  • Experience developing in Ruby on Rails stack and React

We really like the idea of teamwork, so you're absolutely not working alone and will need to partner up with engineers, product owner, and QA engineers to come to the best result. We're all open to giving and receiving feedback, this is to make us all better and better in what we do.


What does life at Visma look like?

We will offer you a competitive salary and benefits package. But, we hope you will give us a chance based on what truly makes us the coolest place to work (in our opinion):

  • We love that you bring your ideas to the table: You will be part of a culture that favors experiments and value initiative, so it’s easy to get your ideas heard.

  • Make an impact from day 1: We want you to experience meaning as much as you experience mastery through creating value that impacts people's everyday lives. And you get to influence how to go about creating that value with full autonomy of your work.

  • Flexibility at all stages of life: Work is an important part of life. Yet, we know that you are much more than your job. We make room for people at all stages of life.

  • We invest in your competence: When you step into Visma, opportunities from A-Z awaits. You will be met by engaged leaders that care for and support you, and take part to competence sharing and learning networks across Visma within.

  • Above all, we are a team: Team spirit is key for us to deliver on our promises to people and society, but most importantly; to form a culture where people support and care for each other as much as we have tons of fun together


Surely this sounds exciting?

We look forward to hearing from you!
