Senior Fullstack Engineer - Core team (Europe)

Published on July 05, 2024

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 prides itself on being a global company with team members working together from across the world. We are remote-first, so you can join us as an experienced Full Stack Developer on our product team from wherever you are in Europe.

This is Booqable

Booqable was founded in 2014 as a rental software designed to help small to medium-sized rental businesses to succeed. From humble beginnings, we have grown to become one of the industry’s leading software providers and have won many awards from software review sites like Capterra.

We are a quickly growing company that is always looking for new people to join our team to help us achieve our goals. We aim to create innovative solutions to the unique challenges that face rental companies as more and more transition to online bookings and management.

There are three products that make up Booqable: A backend where users can manage everything from products to payments, an online store builder that allows users to build a complete rental website with everything they need, and a mobile app that acts as a companion from managing and processing orders for iOS and Android.
