Software Architect Digital Fitness

Innovate. Inspire. To learn every day. That’s what we do at Basic-Fit. We started just 7 years ago and currently have over 2 million members, in more than 900 clubs. Do you want to help build Europe's largest technology-driven gym? We are looking for a Software Architect for our digital consumer products.

This is what your assignment looks like

Keeping our members fit, while building the largest technology-driven gym in Europe. It seems simple: automate as many processes as possible so that our customer satisfaction remains high and costs stay low. But behind this strategy is a complex roadmap of innovations that serves members in a hyper-efficient way.

At Basic-Fit, we have started developing the digital products for our members ourselves. These products help our members during their workout in the club, but also at home or in the open air. You set out the lines to build future-proof solutions and do not lose sight of the feasibility, financial impact and operational security. The development teams can get started to build safe, fast, smart and personalized websites & apps based on your architecture. You also determine which data should be stored where: not only the data model in the CMS, but also the data about the workouts that the member has completed.

In order to achieve a good future-proof design, you coordinate with the business stakeholders, but also with the developers who must support your design. You present your solutions in clear diagrams and easy-to-understand documentation. During development you support the developers to fill in the details and you may lend a hand by “diving into the code”.

This is us
You will notice it immediately at our new office in Tilburg, this is where people build innovative solutions and enjoy working. Our Tech team consists of experienced developers, testers and product owners. All of them are solution thinkers who look for opportunities and inspire each other. What makes the atmosphere even better: you work in Plan-T: Tilburg's newest digital hub. Seven floors full of IT colleagues, programmers and digitals.
