About Floorplanner

Floorplanner started with a floorplan.

When the parents of founder Jeroen were looking for a new apartment, they couldn’t tell if their furniture would fit. Could they place the couch against that wall next to the door? Would the dinner table fit in that room? The only way to figure this out was to draw a floorplan with the furniture on it. Either on paper - which takes a long time - or with heavy duty CAD software - which takes even more time. There had to be a better way.

So Jeroen built Floorplanner. A place to easily create a floorplan of a house and populate it with furniture. Floorplanner is now the leading floorplan platform with over 10 million registered users from all over the world and clients like IKEA and property portals like Funda in the Netherlands.

After Floorplanner came Roomstyler; a place to easily design interiors and to be inspired by all the beautiful creations of its community. With a very active community and clients like Design Within Reach and John Lewis, Roomstyler is the #1 interior design platform on the Internet.

Our latest product is the Yoostyler. Purchasing furniture for your home can be a challenge full of questions and doubt. The sofa and armchair you have fallen in love with – do you have room for the matching ottoman? Yoostyler is a revolutionary interior design tool that enables you to find the answers to all of these questions and more. Have a look here.

All in all, at Floorplanner we want to create simple tools with amazing end results. Tools that can be used by anybody with professional quality output.

Job description

We are always finetuning and rebuilding parts of floorplanner.com as we want to make it better suited for the jobs people use it for. This means the website, the API, the editor and the 2D and 3D image rendering are always being worked on. Right now I’m looking for someone who can help us with rebuilding the parts of the 2D floorplan editor.

But that’s only a start. After that we want to rebuild the 3D planner of Roomstyler, perhaps also the moodboard application and we have some bold ideas for improving the Yoostyler. Enough to keep us busy!

What are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who has experience in building client side applications with JavaScript (or CoffeeScript or LiveScript or ...). But it’s more important to us that you are passionate about building software. Software that is used by many thousands of people every day from all over the world to help them get their stuff done in a faster, easier and better way than before.

The world is changing fast - especially the tech world - so you have to keep up. You have to be eager to try new stuff and learn new tech. But there is a balance of course, we still have to deliver products to our clients. Learning is very important, but most of the learning has to be done while working on production-ready code.

The job is not only about writing code. You are part of a team and you have to be able to work in a team. This means that you have to be able to express your thoughts and ideas in a way other people understand and to be able to discuss them with the rest of the team.

What do we offer?

You can work on software that reaches a lot of people world-wide. And you can do this working together with clever and enthusiastic people who love building software. And all this in a relaxed atmosphere in a nice office with a magnificent view at the new Central Station and near the city centre of Rotterdam.

Your salary will be in line with market practice and we have a program running to earn a quarterly bonus. The job is for 32 or 40 hours a week and we are looking for someone who can be at our Rotterdam office most of the time. However, we have flexible working hours and you can work from home occasionally.
