Functieomschrijving

About DPG Media IT

We are the software craftsmen behind the digital products of all the media brands of DPG Media and all our internal applications that keep our business running. This means we enable the biggest news & entertainment brands in The Netherlands and Belgium via technology.


  • Discovering the agile culture in the media industry.
  • Delivering incremental business value with high quality and high speed as well as providing good support to our customers, is what we do.


+500 colleagues working from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Vilvoorde, Antwerp and Hoofddorp. We believe the unit of delivery is the team. We want to mobilize all the brainpower we can and therefore try to organise our work environment without unnecessary levels and hierarchies, pigeon holes or marching orders to simply be executed.

Understanding the “why” is a prerequisite for doing what we do best. Understanding the problem is key to finding good solutions. Since we don't know what the future will be, we optimize for scale when it makes sense, for fast experiments & learning wherever we can.


DPG Network Area

At DPG Media we all contribute to our mission to reach and inform as many people as possible. Here at the DPG Network Area specifically we are at the very center of our digital strategy. As such you’ll have the opportunity to join a team whose everyday activities have a real impact on our company, and perhaps even digital media as a whole. We are active in both The Netherlands and Belgium but our core team is based in Antwerp.
