Piggy is one of the fastest growing SaaS scale-ups in the Netherlands and is a European market leader for marketing, engagement and loyalty software. We are looking for software developers who want to help us take our product suite to the next level.


Our product team consists of a tightly knit group of around fifteen highly motivated and talented developers and UX designers. Most days, we work from our office in Maarssen, as we like to work together – and this enables us to have drinks after work (not limited to Fridays) – though remote working is an option as well. We work in two-weeks sprints in an adapted, less intensive form of scrum, which works well for us.


As a Back-end Developer, you will be working on building innovative, scalable solutions for a platform that handles many loyalty- and gift card transactions per second for thousands of companies all over the world (12 countries and counting). The product suite which you will be improving consists of:

  • Our loyalty solution
  • Our gift card and prepaid solutions
  • Our marketing tool
  • Our automations tool
  • Our widgets and forms
  • Our public API's
  • Our statistics tools
  • Whatever else you come up with


  • A WO/university thinking level, with strong analytical skills
  • At least two years of working experience as a back-end developer
  • Experience with PHP, Laravel, MySQL
  • Nice to have: experience with Kubernetes, Google Cloud Platform
  • A flexible team player, who likes to solve problems and gets motivated by building great products and features
  • A leader who can coach their team, manage projects and communicate with stakeholders from various departments
  • An excellent command of English and preferably, both written and spoken


We offer you a comfortable, casual working environment, organized team activities as well as informal drinks (‘borrels’), and lots of opportunities to grow. In short, here’s what you can expect (based on 40 hours a week):

  • A professional, informal working environment, within a tight-knit team of developers
  • An amazing office-space in Maarssen, very easily reached by public transport or car
  • An established tech company looking to scale-up and expand internationally
  • A salary range is between €4,000 and €7,000, tailored to your level, experience, and background
  • A full-time employment contract, including 25 vacation days and 8% vacation pay
  • Business and travel expense reimbursement
  • The opportunity to buy a brand new MacbookPro for your own, at 50% of the price
  • A generous training budget to help you stay on top of your game
  • Padel sessions with your colleagues
