 Senior Software engineer Airports 

 Do you want to lay down the foundation for a product that is used at 100+ leading Airports for example Schiphol, Heathrow, and Hong Kong? 


Vanderlande is a global market leader in baggage handling systems (BHS) and innovation is the key to winning in a world that is changing faster than ever, which is why it is essential for Vanderlande to develop cutting-edge solutions. The use and development of these technologies is core to that success. This technology alone does not make a successful organization and our mantra is “In a world of technology, a belief in people”. You can be one of those people, bringing your passion to life and have an opportunity to make a positive impact to some of the world’s leading companies that rely on Vanderlande to give them a competitive advantage.   


The software and solutions that we create are at the core of driving the equipment and processes that make this happen. Be a part of the team that creates software used in hundreds of the world’s leading airports worldwide. Our solutions are daily used by operators and handlers at the airports to control the planning, processing and transportation of bags from check-in up to the moment the bag is loaded into the airplane.  


We are undertaking an evolution of our Airport IT solutions by exploiting the latest technology tools and techniques. This ensures we retain our global number one position within this market and drive innovation to our customers, operators and handlers worldwide.   


At Vanderlande, Agile product development is core to our way of working and the VIBES Core development consists of Agile/Scrum teams.

Innovation is the key to winning in a world that is changing faster than ever. Our customers are expecting regular updates and new features. To support this, we have started to make our software easier to deploy and configure and more open to extensions. This requires refactoring, migrating to a new technology stack, and in some cases rebuilding. At the same time, we still need to accommodate new features.
