How you can
make a difference

Join AH Technology: Reinventing Food Retail every day. Improving the online shopping experience on and the AH app with innovations for millions of users daily.

Hi, we’re AH Technology, food retail reinventors.  
Albert Heijn goes way back. More than 130 years, to be exact. So for millions, food shopping is synonymous with the Albert Heijn brand. We didn’t achieve this with a complacent, ‘hey, if it works today, it’ll work tomorrow’ approach but by continually rethinking our propositions and staying plugged into customer demands. 


Over 1,200 stores? Check. 
The leading online food retail platform? Check. 
We build, run and love it. ;-) 
So what’s next? Accelerating our transition into a hybrid Food & Tech company is. We want to leverage data and technology to future-proof food shopping and make better food more easily accessible to everyone. At AH Technology, you collaborate with inspiring peers in the data, digital and tech domains. A community of diverse individuals who share a common goal; to create digital solutions that simplify (online) shopping and make it more inspiring. Are you ready to reinvent how millions buy and enjoy their food? We invest heavily in data, digital, and tech. And that includes investing in your career!

This is how you will reinvent food retail
As Backend Developer at AH Technology, you contribute to improving and optimizing the experience of millions of Albert Heijn customers. Using the latest technology, you transform the ever-changing insights in online and offline shopping into code that works. In short, you use your programming skills to develop, test, and implement new functionalities with your team.

In more detail, at AH Technology, you will:

  • Creating integrations between our online and store applications.
  • Provide solutions to our suppliers and other brands.
  • Take ownership in developing high-quality services to withstand high loads.
  • Improve, maintain, and develop features to provide a solid basis for our loyalty programs.
  • Be working in a DevOps environment, and you are responsible for the performance and the quality of the things you own as a team.

Your new office 
Curious about your colleagues? At AH Technology, you work with the best experts in the field. In an open environment where expertise is valued, we learn from each other and can innovate. Your team comprises 4 to 8 people, a Product Owner, a Scrum Master, and other passionate developers. They are all experts in their fields. When your team needs a break from coding, you head for the high-tech gaming room. Afterward, you'll be energized and ready to dive into the code again.

The right ingredients for an impactful job 

  • An annual salary between 52-76K, depending on your seniority based on a full-time workweek.
