  • At least 3-5 years of demonstrable experience with project-based work;
  • You are creative and inventive technically, you think out-of-the-box and in terms of possibilities and solutions.


At QolorTech, we find it important that we are all quality-conscious, take personal responsibility, work with a focus on results and above all enjoy working together. Specifically in this job, it is important that you are innovative, have good analytical skills, have a helicopter view, take initiatives, can work in a process-oriented way and communicate well.


What do you get from us?

An informal and pleasant working environment, personal input, variety, plenty of space and freedom, support and collegiality. A competitive salary based on your knowledge and experience, 25 holiday days per year, a 13th month, a non-contributory pension and the opportunity to follow internal and external training courses to develop yourself further.
