Introduction

Welcome to VaIcaT. There is a lot for confusion around the world “Rogue”. Most say it’s a hostile word because it promotes self-interest. But, this is your career. You should be thinking about yourself and your interests only, right? Let us help you with that. We have a select group of clients we gathered over the last 3 years. We carefully selected them based on developers experience, from developers we know and trust. It’s really important for us that the company has a diverse range of projects and jobs available and is willing to add value to the developers we might connect to them. They need your talent, your passion and your experience. Your presence in their projects will be vital to the success of the project and the people who have to use it. Our clients work on big machines like huge filters that create clean drinking water in The Netherlands, millions of people trust you with the software for it. All our clients work on projects that are either very important to society or just insanely innovative/meant for luxury goods like Porsche or VW.

 

What is a Rogue Developer?

Rogue developers work behind the scenes. A synonym for Rogue is Outlaw, like Star Lord? Legendary Outlaw? No? Okay… They work on software that will never be seen and sometimes even touched by the end user. In the past 3 years our Rogue Developers created software for big ships, the maintenance-program has to read the hardware of the ship out to check if it needs to be repaired. Opening these huge ships can costs up to a million dollars, you are the rogue developer who can make sure this information is available. Other projects you might find at our clients are LED lights for classrooms to help children/students focus or be more active / responsive. The lights dim or brighten up when the class starts to get sleepy or too loud. But to go back to the bigger projects… talking about big… what about the biggest harbour in Europe? Connecting an insane version of IoT with realtime dynamic scheduling systems and autonomous vehicles that depend on your code to bring the imported goods to the right place at exactly the right moment. 1, 2, 3, seconds off schedule and things will start collapsing. These jobs are meant for Rogue developers. Important projects, with high value and teams with only the best developers. Developers like you.
