Web developer at the VUB in Brussels: right up your alley?

As a web developer for the VUB’s Brussels Photonics team (B-PHOT), the digital playground is your everyday habitat: you develop websites, applications, IT products and APIs, but you also help carry out marketing campaigns. Being part of a team of friendly and ambitious colleagues, you are employed in an informal setting where creative ideas are applauded. To the organisation, your personal development, health, well-being and work-life balance are not just empty words.

Who we are

We’re a diverse assembly of free spirits, enthusiastic personalities and born innovators. And above all: we’re a group of people living authentic lives. That is, in short, what the VUB-family looks like. However, there’s a lot more to be said, about our values, for example, or about our internal stories.

Within the VUB, the Brussels Photonics team (B-PHOT) is among world leaders in optics and photonics. The team consists of 50 photonics experts and about 25 technical workers. The group coordinates plenty of European projects that are dependent on websites and applications. That’s where you come in.
