(Starterfunction for Computer Sciences, Information Science, Physics, Mathematics)

DSW is a health insurance company and as such, we value accessible and affordable
healthcare. We need to keep up with the wishes of our users within the ever-changing
bounds of laws and regulations. To meet our high service standards and to make these even
better, good IT systems are essential. Our IT department (approx. 200 people) builds and
maintains nearly all of our applications. Do you have a master’s degree in Computer
Science? Are you curious and keen to learn new things? Do you want to build systems that
matter? Start your career at DSW!

As a master in Computer Science (or a comparable IT-study), you know how to deal with
complex questions. You are able to split up these questions into manageable components,
for which you are able to design and develop the mathematical algorithms, which you can
then build yourself in a language like C# or Java. Nothing changes faster than IT, except
perhaps the healthcare regulations, and so we build the systems we need while keeping up
with new developments. We expect you to be aware of these changes and willing to
research what these mean for DSW.

The most common programming tools at our IT Department are C# and SQL. You will kick
off with extending your knowledge of these and being introduced to Scrum. After an
introduction period, you will join one of the Scrum teams, where you will work together with
experienced developers. Before you know it, you will be building applications!

DSW is a Dutch company, so the people who work here speak Dutch. The documentation at
our IT Department is a mix of both Dutch and English. If Dutch is not your native language,
we expect you to be willing to learn the language and of course your colleagues will help you
with this, in any way they can.
