Medior/Senior backend developer in Amsterdam
Nopster is transforming the event industry with its revolutionary event app: I'M IN. Using a mobile app, I'M IN gives its users the chance to win free prizes and experiences, such as admission to (sold-out) music events held across Europe, by playing a simple mobile game. I'M IN also provides its users an extensive event calendar through which the consumer learns about upcoming events.
I'M IN has a large, young and dedicated community that is growing exponentially throughout Europe. The vast majority of the I'M IN users are Millennials, aged between 18 and 35 years old, which are interested in music (events). This makes I'M IN the perfect marketing channel for events and brands targeting Millennials.
I'M IN currently has offices in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), London (United Kingdom) and Ibiza City (Spain) and is soon to open more offices throughout Europe. Next stop: Berlin!
The development of our platform is done by an external agency at the moment. However, due to our fast growth and our short term plans of expansion, we have decided to start our own development division that can bring us the expertise and right advice on a daily basis.

• A great chance to join us in a fast growing period and grow together with the platform.
• You'll be in a position to significant impact what we do and how we do it. Your opinion, creativity and execution are very important.
• Lead development and full ownership of the platform together with the development team.
• Working in the center of Amsterdam in a very dynamic and fun team.
• We focus on delivery, not on hours, and so you would be able to occasionally work remotely and at flexible hours.
