The current team (a dead serious bunch of perfectionists who do make fun also) are doing an awesome job to keep up with the demand and challenges, but we can use an extra pairs of eyes and hands to keep delivering new user interfaces on time.

We love to hear about your talents and ambitions. Having been in the trenches of front end development for years is a bonus. At least you have worked with Typescript for the past year(s), now about Git, testing and pipelines.

A typical day at Blue Star Planning

Your typical day would start anywhere between 07:30 and 09:00. You continue on your tasks of the sprint and when the full team is up at 10:00, the daily standup will answer your questions and layout the agenda for the day or week.

Typically, hunger strikes between 12:00 and 13:00. When working at the office, that’s when the team joins for lunch, usually after enormous debates on where from the many places in Rotterdam city center to get lunch (if the company has not sponsored the pizza or sushi lunch that day).

The afternoon is packed with coding (of course), but alternating with design meetings on the current system or inspirational sessions on new technology. A few times a week these meetings are with the CEO, on progress of development on Blue Star Planning and production planning in general.

We are looking for:

A Bachelor or Master in ICT (or relevant field or similar level)

3 years of experience in a front end development role

A deep understanding of modern JavaScript

Work with TypeScript, HTML5 and React

Implemented SignalR and/or Socket.IO

Fluency in English

Great communication and collaboration skills

A hands-on attitude and passionate approach to solving problems

You will work on (but not limited to):


Interactive workflow systems


Stacking and sliding panels

Visualization of real-time data

Blue Star Planning is a Rotterdam based company with an international focus. We operate as a start-up in the center of Rotterdam and develop a microservices platform in the Microsoft cloud and Kubernetes. Based on your skill and drive, there are many positions in the company you can grow into (support, consultancy, sales).

We love prototyping. You take part in the decision making for technology and architecture, if not downright being the architect. We develop in React, SignalR, Visual Studio and push our code directly to the cloud (no servers in our office!). We love clean code, fast, performant and reusable. And if you break the build…we help you fix it!

So if writing code is totally your thing, you have a love for building complex user-interfaces, and recognize all of the above:

Please let us know and send us a message! We look forward in hearing what would be your perfect job and how we can work together to achieve that.
