Do you have questions about our job platform? You'll find all the answers under FAQ, terms and conditions and privacy statement.

For candidates

What is the goal of itvacatures.amsterdam?

The supply of IT jobs is so fragmented, that it is like finding a needle in a haystack. Our goal is to make the market transparent by literally putting companies on the map. Unlike other large jobboards, we only focus on software developers in the Amsterdam area. In addition, recruitment agencies are not allowed on the platform. If you look at big competitors you will see that more than half of the job opportunities come from recruitment agencies. This does not make the overview of the vacancies any clearer. We make the fragmented offer of IT jobs transparent.

How does itvacatures.amsterdam work?

Creating a personal profile is quick, easy and completely free. You can customise your data and save your favourite jobs on the dashboard.

If you want to apply for a job, the company receives an email with a link to your profile. If they are interested, the company will contact you. Therefore there is no intervention of an agency or recruiter and your information is only shared with the client.

Why should I create an account on itvacatures.amsterdam?

You can only apply to jobs if you have created an account. You also have the option to save your favorite jobs so you can easily find them later.

How can I cancel an account?

It is possible to cancel your account by simply sending an email to support@itvacatures.amsterdam.

What does it cost to apply for a job?

The platform is (and remains) completely free of charge for developers to register and apply for a job.

Is my account safe?

The privacy of candidates is our top priority. The platform meets the highest safety requirements. Your profile is protected and only available to companies you are applying to. Itvacatures.amsterdam will not use your data in any way whatsoever. The platform is protected against web scraping and uses SSL certificates, so confidential information is sent encrypted. Your account is 100 percent secure and your privacy is guaranteed.

My question is not included.

For companies

What is the goal of itvacatures.amsterdam?

Unlike other large jobboards, we only focus on software developers in the Amsterdam area. In addition, recruitment agencies are not allowed on the platform. If you look at big competitors you will see that more than half of the job opportunities come from recruitment agencies. This does not make the overview of the vacancies any clearer. We make the fragmented offer of IT jobs transparent.

How does itvacatures.amsterdam work?

With a map of Amsterdam, itvacatures.amsterdam reveals the fragmented supply of IT jobs in the city. Every company that participates is shown on the map and has its own presentation page. That page has a fixed format and is easy to fill with pictures and descriptions of the company, a team impression, projects and customers.

A company buys a job slot with a minimum term of 12 months, and thereafter, it is possible to terminate the contract every month. During this period, the company website is shown and you can post jobs. If there are no vacancies, you can invite developers to submit an open application - inviting talented developers to come to you!

Why do you only focus on Amsterdam?

We believe in focus and know this market well. Amsterdam is the startup city of the Netherlands. Currently, we do not have the ambition to serve the whole country. By focussing on Amsterdam, we first want to show that the platform works. We already see potential in other cities, but this is something for the future.

What is the distinctive character of itvacatures.amsterdam?

We believe in focus. Therefore itvacatures.amsterdam works with a specific target audience in a specific region. Our job board is made for software developers. The templates we work with, the search filters and the dashboards comply the wishes of software developers. Thanks to the map on itvacatures.amsterdam developers can see exactly what the possibilities are in his or her neighbourhood.

How are you going to solve the shortage?

We can not solve the scarcity of supply, but we can make sure that developers in the neighbourhood know that you are hiring. 60% of the developers are latently looking for a new challenge. On itvacatures.amsterdam it is possible for developers to find companies closer to home that offer the same as their current employer. We give developers the tools to find you.
 

How is itvacatures.amsterdam going to generate traffic of good candidates?

Our team has a lot of marketing experience with this target audience. We invest a lot in running marketing campaigns. We are currently working with an external PR agency, running online ads and we are active on social media. We are also busy with a number of fun offline marketing campaigns, but the specifics will be kept a secret.

For whom is itvacatures.amsterdam intended?

From start-up to large organisation: this is the perfect job board for every company looking for software developers.

Why a year subscription?

We offer job slots for a period of at least 12 months. You can change the vacancy at any time for another one. As a collective of companies, we attract more developers. Due to the high demand for developers, most of the companies are always open to new IT talent. Even when they are not actively looking for developers, they are building a database with potential employees.

What happens after a year?

On itvacatures.amsterdam you will sign up for a subscription of at least one year. You have the choice to pay per month or per year. Companies who pay per year will receive a discount of 5%. After the first year, the subscription will automatically be transformed in a monthly subscription. The membership can now be cancelled on a monthly basis.

Do you guarantee applications?

No. Like every other job board we do not offer guarantees. Whether companies recieve applications also depends on their company profile, vacancy and what kind of developer they are looking for. Our platform has already been succesful for serveral companies but we can not guarantee applications. By putting you on the map, we do give developers the chance to find companies in the online jungle of IT vacancies.

What is the price of a job slot?

You can find our prices at the 'about us' page.

I think 100 euros per month is too much.

We keep the costs as low as possible. itvacatures.amsterdam is on average already twice as cheap as other job boards. In addition, hiring with a substitute such as a recruitment agency will quickly cost you around 20% of a yearly salary. We offer an affordable alternative.

Why do I have to follow the template?

This way developers can easily compare companies with other ones. Every vacancy seems the same, but each company is different. We continue to develop our platform. Some of the options that other big job boards already have will be implemented, but not all of them. We are a startup and there is still much to be done, but we do have a clear vision.
