Innius is looking for a hands-on back-end software engineer, who is challenged by the advances in cloud and IoT technology to contribute to the innius platform by building new features and providing maintenance to existing ones. Our application is realized as a cloud-based distributed microservices architecture integrated through messages and events and offers a variety of functions for data access and retrieval, data analytics, workflow, collaboration and event processing.

About innius

Innius B.V. is a young and dynamic company in the industrial IoT sector. We maintain an open-minded attitude about how to build software, what it should be able to do, and how to market it.

Connecting industrial machines to the innius® software platform, allows machine manufacturers, operators, managers and technicians to use innius apps and dashboards to monitor machine performance in real-time, receive alerts, assign tasks, collaborate, identify efficiency issues, analyse historic data and more. These insights enable our customers to identify points of improvement concerning productivity, quality, energy efficiency and waste reduction.

The innius back-end consists of loosely coupled components collaborating in a microservices architecture which is all hosted by Amazon Web Services. Our web and mobile apps have been designed and built using Angular and Ionic.


Our small but dedicated team is marked by a fairly flat hierarchy, putting new employees on equal footing with the rest of the team. Our size enables us to work efficiently and collaborate closely, but luckily we are still large enough to have the required expertise and for everyone to have a healthy work / life balance. We use the scrum agile methodology, working on cycles of two week sprints and adhere to the principles of CI/CD. In this way, we aim to provide a good balance between personal freedom and accountability.
