Vacature: Head of Technical Operations

Pinkcube – Please join us!

We are an online B2B supplier of promotional gifts and merchandise. Our innovative company is scaled-up with ambition. Want proof? In the past few years we have won the Deloitte Technology Fast50 and FD Gazelle awards, which are given to the fastest-growing profitable companies in the Netherlands. And now we’re raising the bar to the next level by expanding our markets internationally, starting in Spain. To make scaling-up look easy, we need a state-of-the-art platform to support our work. 

Therefore Pinkcube is working towards a future-proof composable architecture. We’re in the early phase of a platform migration that will transform Pinkcube from a Dutch scale-up to an international webshop success. If you feel excited and challenged by transforming our current platform into a composable system—one that is multilingual, multi market and multi brand, but still scalable, flexible and cost-effective—we are looking for you!
