Join us to create the world's best platform for food management.

At APICBASE, we focus on the food industry. Over the past years, we have built an impressive portfolio of top customers and restaurants based in more than 15 countries. Our software and hardware helps them to get their food management under control: allergens, food cost, automatically translated recipes, outlet management, nutritional values and standardised photos are our core USPs. For that, we developed a SaaS suite and a hardware tool, called the APIC Studio, which helps chefs to capture high quality images without knowledge of photography. We have grown entirely thanks to our user friendly product and our will-to-please our customers.

We are growing fast and we need you!

SOFTWARE & HARDWARE DEVELOPMENT

What we're looking for
You are a software all-rounder who loves to work on web and mobile technologies. All you need is some great coffee, a group of talented colleagues and a whiteboard to design the blueprint of our next software module. You are not afraid of getting your hands dirty to find that one obnoxious bug that no one else could track down. You sometimes wonder how people ever got things done without Stack Overflow, but you take pride in improving those suggestions and adapting them to the current context.

What we believe in
We believe in experimentation, in testing, in trying, in failing to ultimately get things done. We believe that reusable, well-tested and readable code can be a beautiful thing. We believe that voicing your opinion (even when it is radically oposed to that of the CTO) is actually a good thing. We believe in respect instead of hiearchy, in responsibility instead of excuses, in results instead of deadlines. We believe in asking for help when you're stuck or when you're confused. We believe in looking back on your time at APICBASE with a smile on your face knowing that you played a vital part in it's success.

What you'll be doing (more or less)
  • You'll work on the software that powers apicbase.com by writing Python (Django) and Javascript code.
  • From time to time you will also work on the software powering our APIC studio hardware. This is Android/Java development.
  • You'll join (and hopefully contribute) to team meetings where we design the blueprint for the future (and sometimes the past, in case of refactorings) of APICBASE.
  • You'll become software lead on some parts of our ecosystem and will be responsible for the full software circle (design, implement, test, maintain and support).
  • All over apicbase.com there will be bits and peaces of code highlighting your unique strengths and skills.
  • You'll always be on the lookout for streamlining our development process.
  • When you stumble upon code in need of a small refactoring you'll not hesitate and just do what needs to be done.
  • You're not the 'but it works on my machine...' type of guy/girl.

Skills
We prefer open minded, bright people above experts in a single field, but the following things will get you up and running just that wee bit faster.
  • Experience with Scrum and Git
  • Python and/or Django experience
  • Experience writing web apps using web frameworks (Laravel, Django, Angular, ...)
  • Experience with continuous deployment pipelines
  • You have a feeling for efficiency when writing database queries or more complex algorithms.
  • HTML, CSS, Javascript, JQuery
Some things we worked on last quarter
  • We implemented a streamlined continuous deployment pipeline for pushing new features to production.
  • Automatic Translation module. Using Google Translation API it is now possible to automatically translate recipes on the fly. Cool right?
  • APIC API. We developed a complete and customer-friendly RESTful and graphQL API.
  • Automated image optimization. All images arriving on our servers are now analyzed and automatically optimized for white-balance and contrast. Pretty neat stuff.
The Offer
  • Competitive salary
  • In order to spend that salary on the stuff you care about we also provide free lunch, we provide great insurance and some other nice perks.
  • Yeah, these perks include a laptop and phone of your own choosing.
  • A great work environment
  • You'll be working in a successful and growing startup
  • You'll really make a difference and play a defining role in the future of APIC
  • Fun and talented colleagues
  • Agile development practices
  • The time to learn and master state-of-the-art technologies
  • Possiblility to travel to technology and food events.
Our Recruitment Process
We aim to reply to all applicants within a week of receiving your application. First we'll look at whatever you send us (CV, code, github profile, personal website, ...). Most of the time we'll ask you for some more information by email but we'll try to get you a phone/skype interview as quickly as possible. Before this first interview we'll give you some things to think about so you can prepare a bit (don't be afraid, we won't ask you to implement our next big feature). We also believe it's important for you to get to know us, your future colleagues and our company culture so after the remote interview we'll invite you to our offices in Antwerp for an in-depth interview and tour. Generally we try to complete this whole process in just two weeks.

Intrigued?

What we're looking for
You love tinkering with the latest technology and you're not stopping until you get a first prototype working. You have done some hobby or professional projects with a Raspberry pi (or a clone). You're not afraid of hacking around with poorly documented SDK's and from time to time you cleverly circumventing SDK's to implement that one cool feature you're aiming for. You're interested in vision/image processing using tools like OpenCV and Pillow. If we can dream on a bit you even have experience or are dying to learn more about Machine Learning and Data Science.

What we believe in
We believe in experimentation, in testing, in trying, in failing to ultimately get things done. We believe that reusable, well-tested and readable code can be a beautiful thing. We believe that voicing your opinion (even when it is radically oposed to that of the CTO) is actually a good thing.

We believe in looking back on your time at APICBASE with a smile on your face knowing that you played a vital part in it's success.

What you'll be working on (more or less)
  • You'll become lead developer of our Cloud Connected Photo Studio (IoT).
  • You'll join (and hopefully contribute) to team meetings where we design the blueprint for the future (and sometimes the past, in case of refactorings) of APICBASE.
  • You'll be messing around a lot with DSLR Camera SDK's (Canon, Nikon, Sontm etc) and squeezing any bit of functionality out of camera's.
  • You'll always be on the lookout for great new features and hacking together cool prototypes of how these would work.
  • You'll try to get every bit of CPU power available here at APICBASE to run your image processing algorithms
  • You're not the 'but it works on my machine...' type of guy/girl.
Skills
We prefer open minded, bright people above experts in a single field, but the following things will get you up and running just that wee bit faster.
  • Experience with Scrum and Git
  • Python and/or Java/Android experience
  • Linux programming

  • Experience with different Machine Learning techniques
Some things we worked on last quarter
  • Automated image optimization. All images arriving on our servers are now analyzed and automatically optimized for white-balance and contrast. Pretty neat stuff.
  • A more streamlined and versatile update process of our APIC Studio's.
  • Integrated Photoshop-like capabilities on our apicbase.com Cloud software.
  • Automated LED light calibration based on image charachteristics.
The Offer
