Job Description

As Developer you play an important role in the future of iChoosr. At iChoosr, the IT Team is not positioned on the side-line, but right in the middle of the business. You actively participate in the search for the best solution for the end user.

  • You are, together with your colleagues in the development team in Europe, responsible for the front- and backend of the applications related to the group buying projects and other future activities.
  • You will analyze the existing functionality and features of the iChoosr web applications and write automated test scripts to ensure that the applications perform as expected.
  • You work very closely with the local business team on translating and implementing Japan-specific features, and as such are the “connector” between the business team in Tokyo and the developers in Europe.

Who are we looking for?

  • You hold a bachelor's or master's degree in Computer Science or related area; supplemented with 1 to 3 years of relevant work experience.
  • You have experience working in a development team (3-5 persons).
  • You are an excellent communicator; you are social, and you can translate your technical knowledge to fellow developers, and other stakeholders.
  • You have experience in developing web applications for consumers (B2C) and understand the importance of usability, SEO and customer journeys.
  • You have experience in creating and maintaining automated test scripts.
  • You have previously worked in an Agile environment. You are flexible enough to adapt to changes that belong to a fast-growing organization.
  • You are innovative and creative: you think out-of-the-box, you can easily see connections and you can translate best practices from other contexts to iChoosr’s business and practice.
  • You dare to take risks and feel good in an environment where "Fail fast, learn fast" is the motto.
  • English is the official language in our organization.
  • You live within 1-hour commute time of our Meguro Tokyo office.

What technical skills are we looking for?

What do we offer you?

  • An inspiring, dynamic and international working environment with fun, smart and motivated colleagues who work together in an informal way.
  • Room for personal and team development.

Work Style

Contract-type: Permanent with 3-month probational period

Number of hours: full-time (80% possible)

Working Hours: Discretionary labor: Actual working hours are flexible, with core time from 15:00 to 17:00 on Monday through Friday.

We are a young, growing, international company with around 100 colleagues who work across Japan, the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, Poland and the US. We believe in the power of united consumers. That is why we organize group buying projects for solar panel systems and renewable energy. The idea is simple: together you get a better deal than alone. iChoosr wants all stakeholders involved to benefit: consumers, partners and suppliers. Over 2,5 million households have now switched to a renewable energy contract or had a solar system installed on their roof and saved money in a very easy way through our group buying projects.

We always organize our group buying programs together with partners which we call community leaders. Community leaders are organizations know and trusted by consumers as standing on their side, like prefectures, cities, wards or coops. The brand and the trust of consumers in the community leader is used to give consumers enough confidence to participate in our group buying programs on a large scale. In Japan we already partner with Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Kanagawa Prefecture, Yokohama City, Kawasaki City, Sagamihara City, Kyoto Prefecture, Kyoto City, Osaka Prefecture and Suita City.

Three years ago we started an office in Tokyo for our activities in Japan. As the number of projects is growing, we are expanding our team here.
