TALENT READY TO
JOIN YOUR TEAM

Our graduates come from various educational backgrounds, but all share perseverance and grit. Our program is very demanding and finishing it really is an achievement.
SOLID TECH
SKILLS
Graduates write clean code and think like problem-solvers. They learn modern JavaScript, but more importantly, they know how to learn new technologies and frameworks. Check our curriculum on GitHub.
MORE THAN
JUST CODE
We train and evaluate the progress of our students, not only based on their coding skills, but also in terms of soft skills, cultural fit and job readiness. Check our Program.
EXPERIENCE
Our students bring life experience and transferable skills from their previous education and professional life, helping them to adapt faster to their new tech careers. 

LEGAL MATTERS

Graduates have residence permits, which enable them to work in the Netherlands just like any other European citizen. We will support you with any documentation and advice you might need for a seamless hiring process.

EDUCATION FEE

When you hire a graduate for an internship, we charge €500/month excl. VAT. If you hire the graduate afterwards, we charge €4000 excl. VAT (minus the internship costs). These fees are used to train the next class of talented developers.

EVERY CAREER STARTS
WITH AN OPPORTUNITY

We introduce you to candidates that fit the profile you are looking for. You will decide which candidates you want to interview, testing both soft and technical skills. We adapt to your hiring process.

Graduates are usually hired at companies starting with a 3 to 6 month internship. When the internship goals are achieved, they join your team as a full-time employee. Hiring directly without an internship is also a possibility.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ALL YOU NEED TO 
KNOW ABOUT 
HIRING OUR GRADS

Do I need to take any considerations in terms of Visas or work permits?
Our graduates have residence permits, which enable them to work in the Netherlands like any other citizen. No special visas are needed!
Are there any important considerations to take into account when hiring grads?
Since our students are mostly junior developers, it helps to have some form of mentorship and guidance in place. Regular check-ins and evaluations also help. We can advise you on how to do this effectively, based on our experience working with 70+ companies. In general, hiring our graduates is not much different than hiring a university intern, though our students typically bring more life and work experience than the average graduate.
How often do you have new talent available?
We usually have talent available and ready to start an internship or a job at any time. Every 2-3 months a new class graduates.
What if a student applies to our company without the intervention of HYF?
In most cases, we introduce our students to an employer through our network of partners. However, we also encourage them to independently apply for work opportunities. In the latter case, we still appreciate employers paying the education fee, as this compensates for (part of) our expenses providing 7+ months of education.

HYF takes away the complexity involved in hiring TALENT. Over the last 1.5 years we hired 5 grads and we are so happy with their level of knowledge, motivation and cultural fit.
