About Relay42

Companies interact with consumers in a variety of ways. This means that the more personalized and relevant interactions are, the greater the impact will be. With the large number of (digital) marketing channels – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, e-mail, telephone, chat, and so on – personalisation is a huge challenge for many companies. Relay42, a promising Dutch scale up, helps companies by using innovative, AI-driven software to coordinate and personalise digital marketing.

Relay42’s innovative software helps companies to personally send relevant messages to consumers at the right time and with the right frequency, thus generating more impact from marketing. The software works within every ecosystem and with every form of customer data. In addition, Relay42 delivers tailor-made solutions for every company. Companies such as ABN-AMRO, Air France-KLM, VodafoneZiggo and Achmea are already using Relay42’s software.

The company was founded in 2011, currently has around 80 employees and has the ambition to grow even further. The headquarters are located in Amsterdam, in addition to locations in Europe and Singapore. The atmosphere is informal, with plenty of room to inspire each other and learn from each other. This environment fits well with the non-hierarchical culture of Relay42: the company is young, diverse and enterprising.

Vacancy: Senior Java Engineer

Due to its rapid growth, Relay42 is looking for an experienced Java expert with a passion for big data technology. The Senior Java Engineer is responsible for the further development of Relay42’s state-of-the-art data management platform. He/she must be able to translate the size and complexity of this platform into simple, manageable and cloud-native scalable code.

The Senior Java Engineer will not only focus on the Java microservices in AWS, the Kinesis Data Streams and data processing with Hadoop and Spark. First and foremost, it’s about the impact they have. Using the Relay42 platform, the customer relationship with millions of consumers at home and abroad is being monitored, which means that any implemented change has a direct impact on the customer experience of all these people! This position thus comes with both great responsibility and the inspiring opportunity to contribute to something that has such an enormous impact.

Besides strong communication skills, this Java expert also possesses a healthy dose of team spirit. Relay42 is an entrepreneurial, fast-growing company, so contributing to improving team processes and team spirit is highly appreciated. Making connections through mentoring and sharing knowledge with colleagues is what gives the Senior Java Engineer energy.

“It would be great if we could find a passionate Java expert who, besides building software, also thinks of building a company as a challenge.” – Stefan van Egmond, Talent Aquisition Manager
