About DPG Media IT

We are the IT 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.

More than 500 colleagues work from Antwerp, Vilvoorde, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Hoofddorp and Copenhagen. We believe the unit of delivery is the team. We want to mobilize all the brainpower we can and therefore try to organize 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.
