Sticktail: improve the impact of insights

At Sticktail we help organizations collect, share, and organize their user insights in a central place. In other words: we help them get the most out of their user research and improve customer experience.

Currently, our platform is used by UX / CS teams of PostNL, Albert Heijn, Randstad, Rijksoverheid, Nationale Nederlanden, Schiphol, WeTransfer. More and more organizations take customer experience and user research very seriously. That means there is a growing need and interest for our product. We see a lot of opportunities here.

Right now, Sticktail is still part of Valsplat, a strategic research and design lab, but we’re about to spin-out and grow independently. 

A tech lead who guides Sticktail into the next phase

We’re looking for a full stack developer and tech lead. Someone with enough experience and / or confidence to build on the product on the one hand. And someone who’s able to set up a (remote) product development team that suits the growth ambitions of Sticktail on the other.

You’ll be building on a solid platform for collecting, sharing, and organizing user insights. Currently, our platform is transitioning into a Single Page App. About 60% is loaded in VueJS through an API. New features are all build this way and meanwhile we're rewriting current features. Your input and ideas are important for our product vision. The same goes for our customers. They highly influence our backlog and everything we do.

Based on customer input and our own vision, we decide on the new features we’re going to build. You get a lot of freedom in the execution: It’s totally up to you to decide how you’re going to realize new features technically. All we have to say is: Performance, user friendliness and safety are sacred to us. 

We need someone with the right skills and mindset

  • You have mastered VueJS or React, Python/Django, Django Rest Framework
  • Your work is structured and consistent and always you think user centered (we really put customers at the heart of everything we do)
  • You love to think big and you got what it takes to build and lead your own team


Nice to haveNGINX, Linux and command-line, AWS, Unit-testing and/or frontend test frameworks.

What we have to offer

  • You have a lot of impact and influence on the future product and team
  • Work on a product that’s used by large organizations like: PostNL, WeTransfer, Randstad, and Nationale-Nederlanden.

  • There is plenty of room for personal development and of course we offer good working conditions


Unique opportunity to follow your dream

You'll step in at the perfect time. We’re still a small team. Focussed on product development, marketing / sales, UX design, and customer success. But we have the ambition to grow fast. This means you’ll join a company you can help shape. You’ll have a say in who will be your new team mates. So, feel free to bring in a few great minds from your own network :)

To us, remote work is nothing new. But we still feel we need a space where we work together, come up with ideas, and celebrate success. For now, Valsplat’s office in Amsterdam is our homebase. We’re planning on opening our own office in the near future (maybe in the Rotterdam area).

Why wait?!

Do you feel like you can’t let this opportunity slide? We would love to hear from you. Just hit apply now.
