Hugo Valk about working as a Scala developer at Randstad Groep Nederland
“Randstad Groep Nederland is a leader in the temporary employment industry when it comes to machine learning. Of course, as developers, we can always see new opportunities to improve services. This is why I am the technical lead in the SmartMatch team. From our philosophy of matching, we develop tools and techniques that can play an important role. I think it's cool to “sell” our ideas to the board for example, and then be allowed to carry them out. And it remains interesting. I've worked here for ten years, but because every 6 months or two years I work on another product or in another team, I continue to develop, and no two days are the same.”

what will you do?
Develop cutting edge IT solutions that bring people and work closer together. You are targeted towards Match and Search solutions based on artificial intelligence, machine learning algorithms and ElasticSearch. The result of your work? State-of-the-art solutions that make our digital service incredibly efficient and personal. An important part of your work is scaling our recommendation algorithms to service all our users. You will quickly learn the skills and techniques required for this. You will also fulfill an important role in designing the architecture of these algorithms.

You are the expert. You are provided with all the freedom you need to come up with other ideas. You make outstanding proposals after discussions with your team. And once you have convinced the organisation? Before you know it, you, together with the team, are evaluating your prototype with internal and external end users. And you will see the impact of your work in the real world very soon afterwards.

where do you work?
At our head office in Diemen. 24 DevOps teams work in this dynamic environment on the continuous development of our advanced application landscape. Seventy percent of this is Java-based. Your team works with Scala, Elasticsearch, Python, Docker and Airflow. All our systems run in AWS.

with whom do you work?

Your team consists of data specialists and developers. There is an interesting cross-fertilisation with other innovation teams and departments outside the IT department. So, you join up with various stakeholders throughout the organisation, such as product owners, as well as with internal and external end users and recruiters, marketeers and candidates. There is plenty of opportunity to expand your knowledge and learn from your colleagues. For example, during Lab Day, which is held every two weeks. You will be working on something that you like yourself then or join forces with colleagues to push an idea further and to learn from each other.
