IT trainer / Java Developer (Academy) Amsterdam

The job in short

What’s your dream?

You want to make an impact on people’s life. Not just give training, but really help them to master new skills. You don’t want to limit yourself to just one company, just one country - you want to spread your wings!
You love to “mix & match” a bit, you like coding, but don’t want to get stuck behind a computer all the time, you also love working with people, but don’t want to lose touch with the actual thing you’re teaching.
You want to be part of the next wave, not getting stuck in old technologies but master what they use in FinTech companies and market leaders worldwide.
You love to be part of a team of people that work together to make this happen.

Meet the job

A week in your life

Your week is never the same. Sometimes you fly to an exotic place to give a classroom training, sometimes you sit with senior people from the product or project team and create new training material and sometimes you join a project to really get hands-on experience.
One of our trainers wrote a blog, here you can see how his week looked like.
