Join our team of enthusiastic software developers who are highly committed to build and maintain a great product. To spend every day to make this product a better product.

WebinarGeek was founded in 2015, in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands. Back then, we'd never expected our organization to grow as fast as it has grown! We work hard every day to make our software even better.
The goal is to create the most user-friendly and easiest webinar solution and to become a standard on the market.
The inspiring work environment gets the best out of our coworkers. We follow the work hard, play harder rule. So, not to worry about the work-life balance. We train just as often with our PT as we are enjoying fries every Friday.
Software should never be a barrier for someone to start hosting webinars. And that is why the software is so important to us. We spend as much time as we need to make sure that the things we build are good, they solve real problems, they make the product better and help us to reach new markets. Quality is embedded into every process, and it starts with people. We want people on our team who live this philosophy and who write code that works and is maintainable in every possible aspect. And as important, we want people who create a nice work atmosphere, having a critical eye on the work, but always encouraging their teammates.
We work with Ruby on Rails as our core framework, we always use one of the most recent versions.
As for the front-end, we work with Typescript, React, Tailwind, Styled components and do component testing with Jest. We also maintain a legacy front-end in Rails, which contains jQuery and Scss.
Other tools, protocols or languages that make our stack are MySQL, Redis, websockets and Git. We also have tools written in or built upon Gatsby, Java, PHP, WebRTC, AWS Lambda, Phoenix and Elixir.
