Backend - Ruby on Rails Developer

Job description

Shypple is looking for a creative developer who wants to simplify complex service on a global scale.

Shypple is building an application with a global impact. With your development skills you will simplify a traditional, complex service and work on a globally scalable product that allows companies to manage the entire supply chain in an unprecedented time and cost-efficient manner.

As a developer at Shypple, you are confronted with very challenging issues on a daily basis. You build on a platform that is growing fast and to which many new features are constantly being added. Together with the team you (pro) actively contribute to the further development of the platform and you are also responsible for the technical future of the platform. Your opinion and ideas are really taken into account at Shypple. That is why we are looking for a problem-solving, business-minded back-end developer who makes well-considered choices to develop well-functioning, robust functions.

The focus of this position is on the backend development of logic on the server-side, the definition and maintenance of our database, and ensure high performance and responsiveness. Having experience or interest in other parts of the stack such as frontend or devops is appreciated. We primarily use Ruby on Rails on the backend and React on the frontend, have automated CI/CD and run our infrastructure-as-code on a major cloud provider. But as we are growing fast, we are open to using new technology when there is a good opportunity.

In an international team, we work with a clear roadmap, as well as with incoming requests from the Sales and Operations team, on the development of new functions for our Web application and public API.


  • You have an academic degree or several years of relevant work experience.
  • You have experience designing, building and maintaining growing applications.
  • We expect you to continue to develop and we challenge you to learn new technologies.
  • You like to (pro) actively contribute to product development to solve our technical complexity together with the team.
  • You have a feeling for the platform and our mission/vision. We do everything we can to conquer the world and unleash a true revolution. That is why speed is important and requires careful choices to be made between the perfect code and to launch a properly functioning feature at a fast pace.
  • As a person you are down to earth, involved, analytical and pragmatic. You are a pleasant and accessible conversation- and sparring partner.
  • You master the English language on a professional level, both orally and in writing.
  • We expect you to take a seat at our office in Rotterdam. It's possible to work from home on occasion, but this is not a fully remote position.

Our offer

Shypple offers you the opportunity to grow together and experience a great adventure together in a role and working environment where you can get the best out of yourself. You will work within an inspiring team in which we work together for extraordinary success.

The growth potential within Shypple is large. You are in an innovative organization where progress is stimulated and facilitated. You actively contribute to the further development of the platform and services, creating opportunities for both the organization and yourself.

This naturally also includes attractive employment conditions, such as a good salary, complete secondary employment conditions and attractive additions such as your own choice of laptop, telephone, and an annual personal development budget. And all this within a state-of-the-art working environment in the lively heart of Rotterdam with a sunny roof terrace, an in-house gym, Friday afternoon lunch and drinks, and inspiring team outings.
