Reaktor is a creative technology consultancy for forward-thinking organizations with offices in Amsterdam, Helsinki, Stockholm, New York and Tokyo. From premium software development to digital transformation, our global community of experts does it all.
We are known for our flat hierarchy, have a 5-star Glassdoor rating, and launched a satellite running Node.js in low Earth orbit.
🛠 HOW WE THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGIES
At Reaktor, we are not looking for specific work titles or technology competencies, we are looking for a personality. We know that good developers can create great things in any language so we have no hard language or tech requirements.
We're big enough of a company that listing all the technologies and tools we use makes very little sense. At Reaktor the team decides what the best tools for the job at hand are. Sometimes it's Clojure running in a Kubernetes cluster, and sometimes it's a small piece of JS running on AWS Lambda.
💥 WHAT IS WORKING AT REAKTOR LIKE?
The Amsterdam office has a unique vibe, being a lively mix of 20 nationalities. We are relatively small in scale (50 people and growing) which allows us to form meaningful connections with every team-member and make sure that everyone has a say in how the company works.
Let’s have fun 🍾
We love to spend time together! To keep the Reaktorian community blooming, we organize Thursday dinners and hangout at the office playing video games and ravaging the beer fridge on a Friday evening.
You can participate in a podcast club, organize a cycling trip or join a group to dive deeper into code with friends - there are tons of Slack hobby channels for you to choose from or suggest new ones.
Also, we have a company boat ready to take you around the Amsterdam canals and we can teach you to skipper it as well!
Sounds curious? 🧐
The best way to know more about Reaktor culture is to read Patricia’s post to her future colleagues and listen to our podcast where we discuss topics developers obsess over. Check out episode 5 to hear about the Amsterdam Hackers project.
💻 WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS WILL YOU BE WORKING ON?
You’re going to be solving juicy tech problems in meaningful, future-forward ways. We deliver anything from the automation of beer brewing processes and fintech mobile apps to the scaling of infrastructure needed for drops of limited-edition adidas sneakers.
We work in close co-operation with clients to help them succeed in technology. For that reason, you’ll be spending time between the client’s premises and our beautiful office in Jordaan once we are back offline.

🪁 HOW CAN YOU GROW IN THE COMPANY?
Reakorians enjoy working with juniors and seniors on the shiny and dirty bits of the codebase alike. No ivory tower architects here. We don’t believe in specific job titles but encourage everyone to shape their own work and skills.
You will learn from the best minds working around you as well as have the freedom to attend any training you see relevant. If at some point you want to try new directions of work, be it sales, recruitment or consulting, we’ll be there to support you in your new role.
🧚 HOW ARE WE MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE?
As citizens, we treasure sustainability, diversity, and accountability – the act of being human. We chip in when we know we can make a difference.
