Studocu was founded on the principle that equal access to study notes reduces inequality between students. Today, we make it easy for more than 45+ million students to share notes every month and use cutting-edge AI learning tools (like Quizzes, AI Chat, and Ask-AI) to help them ace their study goals. The product was a rocket ship from day one and has shown strong product-market fit on every continent with enviable YoY growth, making us a key player in the exploding EdTech space.

Do you want to work on a platform that makes study materials accessible for 45+ million students?

We are expanding our 10 SCRUM teams (70+ back-end, full-stack, and front-end developers) and are looking for a talented addition to our Monetisation team, who is a wizard with PHP and has experience with modern Laravel.

Monetisation team’s mission is to increase revenue by growing our subscriber base and running monetisation experiments to keep improving our model and growth loop’s dynamics. It might sound quite stereotypical but what adds up to the challenge is that the team is responsible for processing payments from 194 countries using 28 payment methods. Which we believe is quite cool. You will be working with our designers and front-end developers to enable our users all over the world to pay with their preferred payment methods, work on our premium system and provide Studocu’s users with the best possible experience. We are keen to join hands with someone whose hunger for technology is only matched by a motivation to solve difficult problems fast, efficiently, and with a keen eye for design.

What you'll be doing here:

  • Ship new functionalities every week for a continuous changing product in one of our teams

  • You bring a deep knowledge of design, analysis, development, and testing while exceeding industry standards in terms of high-quality code and security.

  • Using new techniques such as organising Laravel Applications with Actions.

  • You will also work with the Product Manager and Scrum Master to refine high-level stories before they are further presented to your team.

  • Participate in code reviews and provide feedback to other developers to ensure code quality.

  • Write clean, efficient, and maintainable code that adheres to established coding standards.

Why you'll love it here:

  • Global impact. Our team engages with users from 194 countries. You will have the opportunity to work on projects that reach people all over the world.

  • New tech. We are using the latest technologies (currently PHP 8.1, Laravel 9 and migrating to 10) and updating the older ones whenever possible.

  • Flexible setup. Your own workspace including the hardware of your choosing (Mac or Linux). We work in a hybrid mode where we want to see everybody at least twice a week in the office.

  • Learning and Development. You will be constantly learning and have access to your own annual L&D budget for courses and/or certifications. Plus you can join our free Dutch classes!

  • Holidays. 24 holidays based on 40 hours per week. We also provide a public transport card and contribute to your pension scheme.

  • Multinational team. Our company has 35+ nationalities onboard, which brings unique perspectives and makes for a diverse working environment.

  • Beautiful Office. An awesome office in the centre of Amsterdam with a huge garden, right next to the canals. Including free healthy lunch prepared by our own chef and unhealthy snacks every day.

This recruitment process:

  1. Introductory chat with our recruiter.
  2. Interview with one of our Engineering Managers to learn more about this role.
  3. Coding assignment to check your coding skills and practices.
  4. Final technical interview that will be based on your solution of the coding assignment.

We are looking for you when you are keen to work with PHP8.1 and know what's good in the latest version of Laravel 9. To be successful in this role, this is the kind of profile we have in mind:

  • A PHP expert with Laravel experience.

  • Ability to write high-performance, reusable and fully tested code.

  • You worked in SCRUM before.
