Ruby on Rails Engineer – Logistics Tribe

  • Location Groenlo
  • Business unit Healthcare

Do you want to assist physiotherapists in planning a great workday? Do you want to reduce waiting lists for psychologists? Do you want to work in a team of ambitious software developers who solve complex challenges?

As a Ruby on Rails Developer in the Agenda team, you will build applications to solve logistical problems for therapists/coaches in long-term care. These problems are complex due to the intersection of logistical optimization, regulations, and intricate authorization. It's up to you to devise simple solutions to these complex problems. You will develop new features by collaborating with customers, business partners, and other teams and enjoy taking the lead in projects.

Your team

Your Team Agenda is a cross-functional product team consisting of 7+ developers, a UX researcher, and a Product Owner (PO). We aim to come together at least one day a week on our campus in Groenlo. We maintain five apps in a larger suite. All our apps are Vue on the front end and Rails on the back end. They are tested and neatly served via a 26-minute pipeline to a containerized environment in our own server cluster. This suite is maintained by many more teams.
We collaborate through a planning and organizational structure similar to the Spotify agile model. We believe in "you built it, you run it." After a few months of onboarding, we will ask you to join the on-call rotation. Approximately every 7 weeks, you will be the point person for questions and disruptions. We work on one project at a time in iterations of 2 weeks. In addition to the main projects, each team member works on their own interests, such as Docker deployments, data science, debating the benefits of bronze die plates in extruding dried pasta, etc.

Our offer

We believe that our employees can be their best selves when we provide them with the best work environment. Nedap ensures that you get everything you need to perform your role in the best way possible. This means, in addition to good employment conditions, you have the freedom to manage your time as you see fit.

What you'll get as a Ruby on Rails Engineer:
• A thirteenth-month bonus, profit-sharing, and an attractive pension plan.

• A good work/life balance. You are responsible for your own working hours and vacation days. No one keeps track; we trust your responsibility.

• We invest in your development! In addition to our comprehensive onboarding program and personal development path, we are happy to explore your potential with you.

Required experience and skills

  • Several years of experience in Ruby development: design patterns for large Rails applications, automated testing, and SQL optimizations are second nature to you.
  • Experience in leading software engineering projects.
  • Willing to come to our campus in Groenlo once in a while (estimated 1x per two weeks).
  • Once onboarded, you will join the on-call rotation, ensuring optimal product performance once a ±7 weeks.
  • Agile/Iterative approach to research/development/project management.
  • Fluent in English; Dutch is a plus.
  • Willingness to learn about the Dutch healthcare system.
