Lead Developer Web @ CAT Solutions



At CAT Solutions, each employee guarantees a hands-on, critical and no-nonsense approach with the aim of fulfilling the customer's needs. Thus, each developer is close to the decision making process and thinks together with colleagues about the development. 

You will be responsible for various java/groovy based web applications (portals, websites and optionally Ionic/ReactJS applications). 

Of course we expect knowledge of jquery and modern responsive HTML/CSS, and the necessary skills to design maintainable responsive layouts using modern CSS techniques such as flexbox/grid. We use SASS/SCSS for this purpose.

The basic design of sites and portals is done by external designers when necessary. You are the important link that converts this design into a strongly built-up web application using a framework developed in-house, called 'core web'. The own 'core web'-framework was carefully developed in function of the addressing of all core processes of the ProfitPlus Business Software (product information, customer, order, status, …). It is based on Groovy ( which is a low-threshold language for people who develop OO (knowledge of Java or other OO with sufficient experience is sufficient), released by the Apache foundation. Due to the compactness of the code, it is exceptionally efficient for obtaining fast results in terms of web pages (and e.g. scenario tests). This code is compiled afterwards into java bytecode. Quote: "Groovy builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk."

The tasks will be varied and mainly involve front-end adjustments, extensions and implementations of new skins and designs; however, you will be able to take on occasional responsibilities within backend developments needed for your own projects.

You and your team bear responsibility around three main pillars:

  • Customer websites: you take care of the correct implementation of a look and feel, or are able to make the necessary adjustments yourself, in the form of a (different) skin, and this based on a figma design according to the wishes of the customer.
  • Customer-specific portals: various customers use portals that are used internally, such as for tracking the purchase of materials for employees; extensions of functionality are requested here. In most cases, the screens and information sources already exist in the back-end, and this portal must offer a filtered view of these or not.
  • Internal planning portal: At CAT Solutions, a customized internal portal of ProfitPlus Business Software (anno 2014) is used, but where the functioning and the appearance must in principle be updated so that this can also be deployed for other customers. 


  • You have a Bachelor's or Master's degree in ICT or equivalent experience;
  • You have at least 4 years of professional experience in web development;
  • You have a good practical and technical knowledge of front-end technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, Angular, React, etc.); Based on your passion for IT, you are willing to immerse yourself in new technologies and frameworks
  • You have an interest in business processes and ERP solutions. Experience with ERP development is an asset.
  • You can work well independently and you take responsibility;
  • Your work is very quality and customer-oriented;
  • You are communicative, analytical and can think problem-solving, out-of-the-box;
  • You have a fluent knowledge of Dutch and English.


CAT Solutions offers a challenging, varied role with a broad impact. In addition, you can count on enthusiastic colleagues with a lot of substantive knowledge, who are very accessible and ready to help you (or play a table football match). You will be part of a team of xkcd fans, the office, silicon valley, and even Final Fantasy gamers.

You will work in a strong growth company where IT plays an important strategic role. An innovative, progressive environment that is constantly evolving. There is a lot of challenge that will help you grow into an even better developer: you will gain a lot of knowledge about business flows, and receive sufficient and honest feedback about your performance. 

There is a no-nonsense approach where everyone is deployed on their strengths, but this is interspersed with . If desired and possible, assignments projects and technologies that you are not yet as familiar with will be assigned to you so that your personal development gets a boost. CAT Solutions guarantees a no-nonsense approach and organisation led by people who know what they are doing. The CEO of the organisation is also technically and process-wise educated himself, which ensures that all projects that come in are feasible to work out technically.

There are many development opportunities: in addition to permanent guidance and training, there is a bookcase with interesting books on development, management that is available 7/7, fun team-building events, an annual barbeque, an annual dinner with the partner, sometimes a quiz, … 

There is a flexible working arrangement with home working with attention to a good balance between work and private life. In addition, you can count on an attractive and comprehensive salary package with bonus and company car.
