Linux System Engineer

Netherlands, Utrecht, UtrechtIT

Job description

Our backend needs your system design skills, because at Tover:

  • You can be the inventor of a secure and stable system for our hardware products

  • You get to join a unique fast growing care-meets-tech company that creates serious games

  • You get to go home every day knowing you really made a difference in people’s lives


Some people don't believe in magic. Others have lost their faith in tech. At Tover, our trust in both grows each day. One smile at a time. One game at a time. Co-designing purposeful games that delight and stimulate people with cognitive challenges, calls for a full-hearted approach and an inventive mindset. Our solutions may be playful, but we solve serious care and education issues. Ready to infuse your career with a healthy dose of purpose? Dare to care with us!


How you can make a serious difference

Not by developing a miracle cure (we wish), but by continually improving the back end that enables the Tovertafel to work its magic. While the social impact is an attractive component of the role, the scale-up setting and the tools you wield to achieve your mission greatly add to its appeal. As for that setting, you are a key member of the squad that develops this pioneering MedTech solution. Next to that, you will:

  • Develop, build and optimise core system services

  • Contribute to download, update, configuration, security and networking systems

  • Ideate, design and write automated unit tests

  • Devise manual regression test protocols


Speaking of tech, you’ll mainly zoom in on improving our back-end feature set and robustness. This means leveraging every bit of your system design skills to bring interactive projections to life. From the ground up, so your ability to run with stories autonomously will serve you well. We also challenge you to find chinks in our security armour. Help us develop a ‘Fort Knox’ platform protection against black hats, so information stays safe.


Your playground

Vertically, you team up with system, game-, back-end, and front-end developers, who enjoy exchanging insights and code and aren’t averse to the occasional hackathon (you’re invited!). Horizontally, you’ll collaborate with developers, UI/UX Designers and Product Owners. All of whom are passionate about what we do, who we do it for, and our tech stack.

Job requirements

Here’s what you bring to the Tovertafel

  • University degree or equivalent experience

  • Of course, the right experience: 3 years C or C++ experience as a System engineer

  • Gitlab, Cmake, Conan (or similar technologies) + VPN Technologies, Linux networking and IOT expertise

  • You communicate freely and openly and prefer rational arguments over gut instincts


This is how we make you smile

  • A salary up to €5.000,- a month

  • 25 paid holidays (for full time)

  • Lots of development opportunities: when you grow, we grow

  • Welcoming colleagues and an inspiring workplace next to the Dom of Utrecht

  • NS Business Card, laptop and facilities for a pleasant home office

  • Fun company events and drinks on our rooftop terrace with magical city views


Serious Games and a million smiles a day. You in?
