Kaan anit, founder & chief connecting officer

People describe me as entrepreneurial, result-driven and a peoples' person. Some even call me fun.

Over the last 2 decades I had the pleasure to recruit, train, coach and mentor over 500 people. Many have continued their professional careers within the business as well as many other industries. Some even started their own successful ventures. 

My recruitment industry knowledge helped me to find my passion of building teams and businesses from scratch. I have failed many times, but proud to say I have succeeded from time to time too. After 15 years in recruitment, I knew it was time for a change. Summer 2015 I initiated Yearn with the ambition to change the way recruitment works. 


Eline Botter, head of operations

At Yearn, I'm responsible for the success of our clients and users, our operation, the legal part and (as I keep on joking) everything the rest isn't doing.

I'm really proud to work at a company with such a disrupting goal. My goal is to not only change the recruitment market with the Yearn team, but with all of us.


Tim goedhart, head of marketing

When you want to get in shape, you hire a personal trainer. When you want to find hidden opportunities, you hire Yearn. You still have to go to the gym yourself, but there is someone there to help you. That core always stood by me in the time I've been with Yearn. I love being part of a company that is really disrupting an old-fashioned industry. 

At Yearn I am responsible for on- and offline marketing, advertising, copywriting, email-marketing, customer journeys, onboarding/retention and website. With these efforts I try to support sales, client success and product in every way possible.


Maurice Groenhart, head of product

Over 8 years of experience building highly complex products. Build apps downloaded by +40 million users and SAAS solutions used by +200 thousand users. Managed various product, design and engineering teams. Loves (user) research and values data driven product decisions.

After living and working for almost two years in San Francisco I moved back and decided to join Yearn to change the way recruitment works. 

As Head of Product I’m responsible for all product related stuff and our continuous efforts to build a product you are yearning for.
