Team Rockstars IT is a dynamic, energetic and quirky club! With a team of over 500 selected Software Developers we build IT solutions for our customers and with our 100 HQ (headquarter) colleagues we make all our ambitions and dreams come true (think acquisitions and abroad). With us, people at 1, and thus the work happiness of our employees, is what it’s all about.

Based on our philosophy of “Happy developers, high impact,” we launched a completely new way of working in 2015: completely tailored to the needs of the IT professionals who will define the world of tomorrow! Our customers recognize this and know how to find us more and more as a result.

Rocking Diversity
At Team Rockstars IT we embrace a corporate culture as diverse as the digital world itself, from our philosophy and view of the (working) world we want to be a home for everyone. We realize that breaking through frameworks is not always easy, but that is what makes us even more driven to make a difference. We realize that the power of innovation lies in the mix of different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences, but this is where we as a company are far from. We still have a long way to go and would love to change this, together with you! So, if you are a Rockstar at heart, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or background, we challenge you to join us on an adventure to break the current status quo.
