Hi, we re AH Technology, food retail reinventors

Albert Heijn goes way back. More than 130 years, to be exact. So for millions of people, food shopping is synonymous with the Albert Heijn brand. We didn t achieve this with a complacent, hey, if it works today, it ll work tomorrow approach, but by continually rethinking our propositions and staying plugged in to customer demands.

So, what s next? Accelerating our transition into a hybrid Food & Tech company is. We want to leverage data and technology to future-proof food shopping and make better food more easily accessible to everyone. At AH Technology, you team up with inspiring peers in the data, digital and tech domains. A community of diverse individuals who share a common goal; to create digital solutions that make (online) shopping simpler and more inspiring. Are you ready to reinvent the way millions of people buy and enjoy their food? We invest heavily in data, digital and tech. And that includes investing in your career!

This is how you will reinvent food retail:

This role is in the Digital Tech Marketing & Inspire domain within AH Technology. Marketing & Inspire exists of more than 50 people divided over diverse teams. The Bonus squad lets our Dutch and Belgian users browse their favorite thing: discounts! They provide both the general Bonus environment and the Bonus Box, which is filled with personalized offers

As a backend developer you make an impactful contribution, not only to the employees of Albert Heijn but also to the millions of customers who shop at Albert Heijn. Together with the web and app developers, you'll work on providing a stable and lovable platform for all the users that rely on Allerhande every day.

You'll get to play with all the toys, like Elastic Search and an external API for shoppable recipes. Plus, there are also some big technical challenges to solve: sunsetting our legacy recipe CMS in favor of a custom built one using PostgreSQL/MongoDB and a newer tech stack, combining data sources in Bloomreach CMS to speed up editing flows, supporting multi tenancy in our recipe service and more.
