Do you get excited about developing robust and scalable web applications with Ruby on Rails? Are you someone who is passionate about working with the latest web technologies? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then we have the perfect role for you.

We are looking for a Ruby on Rails Engineer to join the Caren team within the Healthcare market group.

Your team

“Technology for Life" is what we believe in. We look for meaningful connections between people and our software solutions. Our Caren solution is built for clients and their loved ones so they can collaborate with healthcare professionals.

As a Ruby on Rails Developer, you will work on improving the Caren solution. Our goal is to enable clients, their relatives, and healthcare organizations to collaborate closely and thereby improve clients' health. Additionally, we aim to enhance care processes by encouraging healthcare organizations to be as transparent as possible and to offer all available medical information to clients and their networks.

Together with another team member, you will focus specifically on the general practitioners' market. This includes improving communication between patients and GPs, scheduling appointments, or requesting repeat prescriptions. We encourage you to take the initiative in these areas.

You will work on both front-end and back-end projects in a new codebase. 

The top 3 responsibilities in your role:

- You contribute to functionalities that make a societal impact, specifically targeting the general practitioners' market.

- You ensure that the solutions you implement are future-proof.

- Through clear communication, you actively contribute to how we work together as a team.

  • You will receive a thirteenth month salary, share in the profit distribution, which you can use to acquire certificates of Nedap shares, and we offer an attractive pension scheme.
  • You determine the work-life balance that suits you. We do not register working hours, days off, or vacation days. We trust you to take responsibility for this.
  • Our people are the foundation of our success. Therefore, we gladly invest in your development. We do not have a fixed development budget.
  • In addition to participating in our comprehensive introductory program, you will embark on a personal development journey, where we will work with you to explore and further develop your potential.

Required experience and skills

You are involved and not afraid to innovate and collaborate to find the best solution. You are precise and love continuous learning. Therefore, specific education is less important to us.

Do you also recognize yourself in the following?

- You have at least 5 years of relevant work experience, preferably in full-stack Ruby on Rails development;

- You have experience with MySQL and/or PostgreSQL;

- Experience with Rails 7 and Hotwire is a plus;

- Excellent command of Dutch and English, both spoken and written;

- You feel comfortable in an environment with many uncertainties (startup mentality);

- You have a “I've never tried that before, so I think I definitely can” mentality.
