At LeasePlan, we are always asking What's next in mobility.

Join our team and be part of a dynamic, exciting and engaging business, so we can discover What’s next together!

To continue LeasePlan's success story in the fast-moving automotive industry, we are actively building our digital presence to create the "future of Digital" in the mobility industry, and to achieve our vision of "any car, anywhere, anytime". At LeasePlan Digital, our ambition is to create a customer-centric experience across all digital touchpoints to deliver true value to our customers and in turn maximize long-term customer satisfaction.  

What you will do: 

A typical day starts with a standup, where you synchronize with the team. Tell them what you worked on, what was cool during the day and what could have gone better.

Then you will dive into some tasks you have planned to tackle for the day. It can be a small task like guiding a developer to fix it is GitLab pipeline, but it could also be a bigger project like enabling Istio for the developers to use on our Kubernetes based platform.

Meetings (sadly) do still happen, and you will be asked to take part from time to time, but we strive (and succeed) to keep them on topic and useful. We are all about feedback and you can always count on the team as well as the management to lend you any assistance or guidance needed – the same will be expected from you though. Finally, the day after you are ready to merge to master. You will deploy everything up to prod so that code and deployment are aligned with Infrastructure as code. 

During regular (non-obligatory) guild meetings you can show off your latest state-of-the-art tools and processes you worked on or voice your opinion on things others did.
