To improve one of our inhouse product teams we are currently looking for a Ruby Backend Developer for our HQ in Hoofddorp.

At YoungCapital's R&D department in Hoofddorp, we have 60 developers building technological innovations in a data-driven and agile way. 

Together, we work on many impressive applications, and we build the vast majority of these ourselves.

Standing still is not an option for us. YoungCapital prioritizes growth and we are never afraid to make a change.
