What we offer

  • Work with a perfect knowledge balanced team, across The Netherlands and Portugal (Knowledge trips included!)
  • Experience working for an international company, with a strong focus on the actual IT working methodologies and mentality
  • A working environment where your team and manager understand that it’s important to spend time thinking about a solution, rather than rushing into the first one that comes to mind; an environment where re-factoring and rebuilding are seen as sometimes necessary; an environment where the team is the one truly responsible for coming up with a solution, rather than implementing one that was imposed. 

Sounds about right? Don’t hesitate and send a copy of your resume with a small motivation included.

Non-English resumes will not be processed and you must be eligible to work in Portugal. At Basecone we do our own recruitment, therefore we don’t need a response from recruiters. Thanks for understanding.
