Who are we?

Qollab is the tech arm of digital learning specialists TinQwise. We are a tight-knit team of technology lovers and innovative thinkers based in a quiet corner of Amsterdam. We work on improving culture and driving user-centric learning for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, PICNIC, IKEA, Catawiki, Sani-Ikos, Randstad,, G-star, Hunkemöller, Rituals and many others. We are proud of bringing the best tech to our customers, and of building a platform and products we believe in. We work hard and play hard. We are honest, open, and don’t take things personally. New ideas are welcome. Always.

The work:

You will be a key member of our "Foundations" SysOps team. The Foundations team is focused on security, stability and performance of our stack. This includes everything from our AWS infra, PostgreSQL databases, Kubernetes clusters, ElasticSearch, RabbitMQ, CI/CD, and our python/Django application.
You enjoy making infrastructure more robust. You know how to manage infrastructure-as-code. You like to move up and down the stack, including the python application, to find and optimize performance bottlenecks. We value modern, but proven tech, and solid, scalable solutions over flighty pet projects.
We love clean, maintainable code as we are building an ever-expanding product that’s not even halfway yet. Qollab moves fast so you need to be capable of getting in-depth knowledge on the product wishes and the company within a short amount of time. Collaborative innovation is key within Qollab and you know how to clearly share your vision and ideas to developers, designers and business stakeholders.
Keep our innovation power running at the fastest pace possible and help us remain at the cutting edge. Are you ready to innovate?
