Think of a tool which helps large organizations deal with change, stay in control and foster growth. Now imagine that you are part of an informal, innovative and passionate team that builds such a tool. Do you see yourself working in such a team? That’s great! Because we would like to welcome a new member.

BiZZdesign was founded in 2001, and we have grown into an international company with employees around the globe. However, the atmosphere in Enschede is still very ‘Dutch’: informal, down-to-earth and relaxed. We have plenty of space for you to work by yourself or in small groups. We want to make sure people feel at home, and invest in spending time together, both at work as well as outside of work.

As a company, we know we cannot grow if our people don’t get the opportunity to develop themselves. Therefore, we appreciate input from new employees on how we can improve our product, our methods of working and become a better employer. Are you interested in learning more?

Our software approach

We believe in being as open and transparent as possible, we are a software company above all. However, our website is naturally oriented towards our customers and will not give you an impression of the way BiZZdesign creates software.

Below you will find a very brief overview (not complete!) of the tools, procedures and technologies we use.

  • Two multi-disciplinary feature teams, who deliver end-to-end features for our customers in a two-week sprint cycle. Each team has their own scrum master, and we have one overall product owner.
  • We hold true to the agile principles, and incrementally try to improve the way we work.
  • We use Jira for our ticketing system, Bitbucket for our code, nvie as the base for our git branching model and are moving from Jenkins to Bamboo for our test and deployment automation needs.
  • Our Enterprise Studio desktop client is developed using C++ and is packaged with our Activity Console which is developed in C#. Both utilize SQLite databases for data storage. The activity Console communicates via a REST API with our Team Server.
  • Our Team Server is developed in Java and uses the Play Framework as its base. It stores its data in an SQL Server database. And finally, it offers a web application written with AngularJS for browser access to data and tasks.
  • We are heavily investing in a new web portal for our customers, which will be developed using a Javascript framework.
  • Finally, we deploy our server and desktop client in a cloud solution, where we are always looking for better and smarter ways to reach our goals.
