Job Opportunity

Ruby (on Rails) Developer

The web development department of Keplar Agency is going to grow rapidly over the next twelve months and therefore we are looking for new developers to join our team. Are you a software developer that is always curious and on the forefront of new technologies? Always dedicated to learn and improve? Are you a team player who thinks in solutions and is familiar with Ruby on Rails? Apply now.
If you are a Ruby (on Rails) Developer or used to be one and want to get back in the saddle, this role is definitely well suited for you. We offer an ambitious developer a great chance to work on the cutting (sometimes bleeding) edge of technology. You always try to incorporate new technologies into your work and are creative in solving the most challenging technical questions by delivering some unique software to our national and international clients.
We are looking for a Developer who has a drive and passion for technology. Outside your job you are interested in anything that’s plugged-in. Maybe you have made some nice contributions to the Open Source community. While coding you stick to conventions and have a clean style. Performance and optimization of your software is a self-evident part of your workflow. You have experience with test-suites and the benchmarking of your code. After building your software according to spec you know how to bootstrap a (cloud-) server and deploy your code effectively.
A minimum of 2 years of experience in a professional environment working with Ruby (on Rails). Apart from Ruby, you have extensive knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript as well as common database solutions. You know how to build a RESTful API and have some defendable ideas about how to set up your MVC-projects. If your JavaScript skills also stretch as wide as your knowledge about AngularJS or other JavaScript-based frameworks, that would be a big plus. You demonstrate a broad skill set with the desire to stay up-to-date and learn new technologies while keeping an eye on the Open Source community. You have a proven track record working in project teams and working with deadlines. Some of the technologies we work with, that we hope you are interested in: AngularJS, Capistrano, Chef, CoffeeScript, Git, Haml, Middleman, MongoDB, MySQL, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Redis, RSpec and Sass.
We offer a full time (40 hrs) employment contract for seven months with a one month notice period, 25 holidays (on top of the official national holidays) and a competitive wage. Our office is based in the Amsterdam Houthavens and has a stunning view of the IJ river. Your approximately twenty colleagues are young and originate from various countries. We have an informal company culture and short communication lines.
