We are the market leader in the Netherlands and Belgium and we have the ambition to move further into Europe and the rest of the world. The tools and features you will develop will be used daily by our 1,000,000+ customers, partners, resellers and your colleagues. We want to become a global market leader. You play a crucial role with regard to professionalizing the processes and structure of our systems.

Parkos is a fast-growing, international company with an office in Groningen. Located within walking distance of the station. There is an open and informal corporate culture within the company.
