A little bit of free advertisement for our new partner: LIFT! Check out what they are looking for, send us your CV, and we will make sure it arrives!

“We’re looking for an experienced developer to take the lead on the development of our backend.
At Lift we use data and machine learning to profile companies, vacancies and occupations so we can recommend these to our users. Instead of the traditional approach of matching cv’s and job descriptions, we focus on matching on dimensions like interests, psychometrics and the cultural fit.
We just received a new investment, we have a first Lift app in the Apple app store. Currently finishing up on delivering our first white label version for a paying customer, with a number of white labels on the roadmap. In other words, we’re growing.
So we’re looking for some talented people to join our endeavour. Next to a dev lead, we’re currently expanding our team with more capacity on the back and front end, DevOps, and data science.
