Who are we?

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) is one of Europe’s top 10 business schools. RSM provides ground-breaking research and education furthering excellence in all aspects of management and is based in the international port city of Rotterdam – a vital nexus of business, logistics and trade. RSM’s primary focus is on developing business leaders with international careers who can become a force for positive change by carrying their innovative mindset into a sustainable future. Our first-class range of bachelor, master, MBA, PhD and executive programmes encourage them to become critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinkers and doers.

As a part of the Information Management & Consulting (IMC) department, the development team works closely together with other departments by building and improving applications to support processes for students, staff, researchers and alumni.

Our perfect match is …

… a well-educated and passionate developer, to strengthen our team.  You will fit in our team if you like sharing and absorbing knowledge and skills, are enthusiastic about clean code and feel satisfied when you deliver on your promises.

Your day at RSM …

You travel to campus by bike or public transport and start up your MacBook. As a team you’ll discuss the previous day, your goals for today and how you can achieve these goals. Afterwards you and your colleagues go to the campus supermarket to get a cup of coffee, or a croissant, and get to coding.

You start working on your Jira issues and review code from your colleagues. Around noon it’s lunch time and you’ll be eating together with the whole IMC department, or perhaps you’ll prefer ‘going out’ to eat among students at the campus food court.

With a full stomach, you’ll continue developing the current application and at the end of the day you’ll be able to unwind by joining one of your colleagues for a game of squash or a round of boxing at the Erasmus Sport Center.
