Java Developer (Leuven)

Are you a freelance Java Developer who’s looking for an opportunity in Leuven? Look no further!

Are you up for the challenge?

We’re on the lookout for a Java enthusiast to collaborate with our on-site team in Leuven. First of all, you will be the missing link within our ACA-team at the end customer. There, you’ll join our developers at a migration project, in which legacy code written in Cobol needs to be migrated to Java code. The deadline for this project is the end of 2019, which is why we’re asking for a commitment until at least December. In this project, we work according to the principles of clean code and clean architecture. Above that, our team works according to the Agile methodology, making use of its best practices such as Scrum and Kanban.

Do you have what it takes?

As a Java Developer, you have at least five years experience in software engineering. We’re especially looking for a backend developer, but if you have worked fullstack or have knowledge of certain frontend technologies, you’ll have an advantage. Furthermore, you have experience in and knowledge of following technologies:

  • Java
  • REST
  • AngularJS
  • SpringBoot
  • RabbitMQ
  • Cobol – This is the old code that needs to be migrated.  We’re not asking to program in this code language, but previous experience in a Cobol environment can be a big advantage.
  • Good knowledge of Dutch is mandatory for this opportunity. Nice-to-have is good knowledge of English.


Additionally, you have no problems working independently but have the suitable communication skills to be able to work smoothly in a team of other developers. We’re looking for a problem solver, who thinks proactively. Having a hands-on mentality is definitely a plus.
