Online shopping is booming and with it the amount of returns. Where others see a problem, we see an opportunity. We have found a unique way to help e-tailers and brands deal with the growing number of returns. Our solution increases the value of returned goods and significantly decreases the environmental footprint by giving products a second life.

Uw rol

Development team
The development team takes care of the development, maintenance and support of the software BuyBay runs on. For the colleagues in our logistical centre in Wijchen, the teams in Amsterdam, but also our partners who use our software solutions as a service. They do this using a modern technology stack and a continuous drive to improve both the quality of the technology, as well as the processes used to deliver it.

To expand the development capacity required to implement our ambitious software solution roadmap, we are seeking to add a Ruby on Rails Developer to our development team. The Ruby on Rails Developer will be a senior member of the development team, reporting directly to CTO Rutger van Bergen. It’s much more than a development role; it’s an opportunity to make an impact on the business.

What will you be doing?

  • Develop software that is aimed at optimizing the full flow of return product handling, both within BuyBay and at our partners, in collaboration with the other developers, the Product Owner and QA engineers.
  • Design, develop and maintain front and backend solutions for database-driven web applications.
  • Participate in and contribute to decisions concerning architectural and design patterns used and applied within BuyBay’s Ruby on Rails applications.
  • Perform continuous and proactive maintenance and support on our operational software, involving multiple applications and interfaces.
  • Work on all areas of Ruby on Rails applications, including graphical and non-graphical user interfaces, back-end logic and third-party API connections. 
  • Work on the continuous enhancement of the Ruby on Rails development practice within BuyBay.
  • Also challenge the current tech stack and suggest other solutions where necessary. The sky is the limit.
  • Liaise with and contribute to the Ruby on Rails community in the Netherlands (and beyond).

Uw profiel


  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in computer science or equivalent.
  • Minimum of 4 to 6 years full-stack experience with developing web applications in Ruby on Rails, using Javascript/jQuery and Bootstrap.
  • A strong affinity with databases; you know how to design and tune them.
  • Experience designing, developing and using APIs.
  • Used to working agile, using Scrum.
  • Experience working with AWS, the Atlassian stack and Mercurial or Git.

Who are you?

  • Great analytical skills with the ability to define challenges and then address them.
  • Love learning new technologies and delivering customer-centred solutions.
  • Open to discuss, learn, grow, and help and coach others to do the same.
  • Solving problems phrased in business terms through the clever use of appropriate technologies.
  • Ownership of the software you develop, from development through delivery to production.
  • Love to write clean, concise, maintainable and well-tested code.
  • You have strong communication skills in English and like to collaborate in a dynamic team.
