How we work
We match young professionals who are a perfect fit for your organization and train them in a customized training program that we design together. To do this in the best possible way, we go through a number of steps toward cooperation. In these steps we explore what your organization needs, what hard and soft skills are important and what the details of the collaboration process will be.
In the preparation phase, we go through a number of steps to arrive at a selection of suitable candidates.
Training and Commitment
The moment our candidates start at your organization, our training begins as well. During these first months, the candidates follow the customized training at the Young_Coders training center in Amersfoort. At the same time, they are being inducted into your organization and are already gaining some real-world experience.
After the training, candidates are full-fledged junior tech professionals and will start working full-time at your organization. Meanwhile, they receive a comprehensive soft skills course in which they develop as professionals over a 5-month period.
Each month, a Young_Coders success coach visits to monitor progress the young professionals. We offer tools for further development where necessary and report progress to the client.
At the end of the first year, we discuss the goals for the second year and what further training is desired. In the second year, young professionals specialize in specific team roles and follow an individual learning path.
After two years, your young professionals have grown into medior tech specialists who feel completely at home with your organization. They make your organization more diverse, younger and innovative.
Does this way of working fit with your organization? If so, contact us and together we’ll explore how we can help your organization get tech talent with a future too.

“What appealed to me most about Young_Coders is that they don’t search by position, but by profile. Based on input from within the organization, what we expect from someone who fills such a role, you get a much better match; appropriate to the position and the company.”
- Marieke van Dalen
Manager online at the Dutch Land Registry (Kadaster)
“Young_Coders trains the talents that are sometimes hard for us to find. Because they don’t have an IT background yet, they look at issues in a different way, come up with unique ideas and are a valuable addition to our team right from the start.”
