About the position and the software development team

In this position you are part of our innovative software development team and you work on the development of clinical software. With your work, you contribute to Maastro’s strategy aiming to cure patients and/or to prevent side effects of the provided treatments as much as possible.

What kind of projects is the software development team currently working on?
The team currently has a portfolio of both clinical and scientific researchprojects, for example:

  • Developing global infrastructures to enable knowledge engineering and (bio)medical and medical imaging computing (for example eurocat.info, www.dtls.nl/fair-data/personal-health-train).

In order to be state-of-the-art in both patient care and research, it is important for Maastro that their software engineers are flexible and able to find the balance between clinical quality and pragmatic speed, taking into account the lead time for the entire development process. Software development takes place in Agile sprints in which the roadmap of the information managers and principal researchers are converted into a short-term planning.

You work closely with your fellow software engineers to analyze problems, identify additional requirements and come up with solutions that fit best within Maastro.

  • You can find your way within the Atlassian-stack (Jira, Bamboo, Bitbucket) or other code managementtools like Git, Maven, etc.;
  • You can work independently but you are also a good teamplayer;
  • Speaking Dutch is not a requirement but we do require excellent communication skills in English.

What do we offer you?
