Why Copernica?

We offer a competitive salary and completely reimburse your travel expenses. Our workspaces are spacious and our office is very close to Amsterdam Central Station with a view of the IJ river.

Our team is young and diverse, our company trips legendary, our skylounge beautiful, and we have a well-stocked open bar.

We are also adapting to the special circumstances we live in currently. We offer you support to seamlessly work from home, flexible office hours and informal contact through Slack. We also have drinks online once a month.


Copernica's open source libraries

PHP-JS : A bridge between PHP and JavaScript. This library allows for executing JavaScript code right from PHP code and to share variables between them.

PHP-CPP : A well documented C++ library for developing PHP extensions. Extensions built on top of PHP-CPP are easy to understand and simple to maintain. No more deep knowledge of the Zend engine and pointer manipulation required.

AMQP-CPP : A C++ library for asynchronous non-blocking communication with RabbitMQ. The library can be used to parse incoming data from a RabbitMQ server and to generate frames that can be sent to a RabbitMQ server.

REACT-CPP : An event loop library that utilizes the C++ lambda functions to notify you when there is activity on a filedescriptor or on a timer. Internally. It is a wrapper around the libev library and does therefore also depend on that library.

And many more! Take a look at our Github page .
