This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is passionate about software development, DevOps, test automation, and/or data engineering. No prior experience is required as you will receive all the necessary support, guidance, and mentoring from our team to quickly become hands-on and grow in your professional skills.


Our Company & Platform:


At iptiQ, we have built a cloud-native SaaS solution to provide a digital end-to-end platform for selling and managing life and health insurance products. Our backend is developed in Java and SpringBoot, while our UIs are written in React JS. We use AWS as our cloud platform, Kubernetes for backend deployment, and SQL and No-SQL databases.

  • Writing new and extending existing shared libraries used by other engineering teams

Our small, international team is responsible for creating and maintaining the data lake, writing automated regression tests, and supporting other engineering teams with DevOps services and shared libraries for our Tangram Platform. We work in an agile setup using two-week scrums and prioritize a strong team dynamic.


Student Qualifications:

  • Eagerness to learn new things and apply them in practice right away
  • Exposure to at least one popular programming language (Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, Java, Kotlin, or C#)
  • "Can do" mentality and problem-solving skills
  • Desire to grow in both hard and soft skills


What We Offer:

  • A supportive and collaborative team environment
  • Mentorship from experienced experts
  • Opportunities for personal and professional growth
  • Hands-on experience with ground breaking technologies


If you are passionate about software engineering and eager to learn, we encourage you to apply for this part-time Junior Software Engineer position at iptiQ L&H EMEA. Join our team and gain hands-on experience while receiving the support you need to thrive.
