In addition, we expect that you:

Who are we?
Founded in 2015 and active in countries all over the world, Klippa is a fast-growing IT scale-up. We started out as a start-up specialized in digitizing paper receipts, but we now offer numerous services in automated document processing. We developed our own OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology that allows us to scan and process any type of document automatically, from invoices to passports. It is our mission to use the very best technology to relieve people from having to do tedious administrative tasks. We make work more enjoyable, we prevent errors and fraud, we reduce costs and we enable organizations to focus on their core business. 

Our goal is to use the very best technology to relieve people from having to do tedious administrative tasks. We try to use machine learning techniques as much as possible with the aim of continuing improvement. We promote freedom and responsibility and expect our people to care about our company, product, clients and goals. You will be working in a team of 20 developers. In addition, you will also collaborate a lot with other teams within Klippa. Think, for example, of back-end developing and the AI team. We believe that teams achieve more than individuals: we succeed by working together. During the breaks we like to play a game of Fifa on the PS5 or table tennis. At the Friday Night Drinks we like to organize Call of Duty LAN-parties at the office and of course have a beer. Or two.

What do we offer?
We offer you a place where there’s room for your creativity, entrepreneurship and development. A pleasant working environment is important to Klippa. That is why fun activities are regularly organised, such as our Klippa team event every month: in December we are kickboxing! 

Furthermore, you can expect: 
– A part-time or full-time (between 32 to 40 hours a week) job as a cloud engineer. 
– A competitive salary, including a bonus plan. 
– 25 vacation days per year (based on a full-time contract) and 8% of the gross wage of the previous year holiday allowance. 
– pension accrual and a personal development budget. 
– a company laptop and a hybrid (flexible) workspace.  

Developers at Klippa make awesome software, but they also like to joke around from time to time. That’s why we collected some of the funniest developer jokes for you!
