Do you have experience as a functional analyst in software development projects? Are you familiar with the principles of Agile working? Then Cegeka has a customized challenge for you.  Cegeka is looking for an experienced proxy / functional analyst for one of our agile teams for the EverESSt project at Acerta in Leuven.  Acerta is a Belgian HR service provider with wage calculation as one of their main activities, for companies of all sizes.

So the need for a new engine grows. An engine that uses modern technology, which is also both cost effective and can support new business processes and models. Such a payroll engine is a software application that calculates employees' wages each month.

By doing what we do best: building high-quality software using our Agile mentality and best development practices. We use techniques such as DDD, TDD and BDD.
