From growing our rental business...

In 2009, Bjinse, Arjen, and Johan developed bespoke software for Budgetcam, a Dutch camera rental business Bjinse had founded several years earlier. It was successful in growing revenue and improving the efficiency, allowing it to become the market leader in the Netherlands with 8 stores in 7 major cities with over 100 team members.

The trio thought that this software would be helpful for other rental businesses and decided to create a commercially available version. The goal was to create an open and flexible rental software that is suitable for all types of rental business. Booqable was launched in 2014 and now helps over 4,000 rental businesses to streamline their operations and increase revenue.

Booqable is scaling up, and our Stability team plays a vital role in ensuring everything runs smoothly. While we rely on Heroku for our infrastructure and it’s essential for us to embrace some DevOps practices to accommodate our growth.

As part of our security efforts, the Stability team implements robust security measures. This includes regularly assessing and monitoring our systems for vulnerabilities, proactively identifying potential threats, and implementing appropriate safeguards to protect our infrastructure and customer data.

We’re excited to introduce this new team at Booqable. If you’re enthusiastic about working in a close-knit team and have DevOps experience, we encourage you to apply.
