About YoungCapital

At YoungCapital we give people work. We're an employment agency recruiting almost all our candidates via digital channels and offer many students, graduates, and young professionals a wide range of career opportunities.

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. For example, all the 30 websites that are part of YoungCapital and their databases, but also the YoungCapital app, our own ATS (Applicant Tracking System), an e-learning environment we call University (catchy, right?), machine learning algorithms, and many many more.

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

the role

You are one of the engineering managers of YoungCapital. You think of strategies that will improve workflows and you're able to empower teams to become continuously more independent. You also focus on cross-team collaboration.

If issues arise, you facilitate conversations, you solve problems. You give quick feedback and you're good at giving it. You guide employees during 1 on 1 meeting (approximately 15 people) and, with your coaching mindset, you help them set goals for themselves and reach them. 

Plus, we're growing incredibly fast right now, so you're also involved in hiring and interviewing.

To be successful in this role you:

  • Ensure high synergy between employees and general team happiness
  • Solve conflicts and facilitate discussions in a pragmatic way
  • Make your teams run well and track their success with data points
  • Coach employees and help them achieve their maximum potential
  • Collaborate with other teams and get the best out of YoungCapital

  • A pension plan, potential bonus, travel allowance, 25 vacation days, 6.5 ADV days plus 1 additional holiday day;
  • Each year, there is a budget for your education and development;
  • A yearly budget of €150,- which you can spend on sports-gear;

  • You will have an Apple MacBook;
  • You will be a part of a great working atmosphere, including our own YoungCapital festival, various hackathons and other fun events;
  • An awesome and healthy lunch, every day!

What we ask:
