Smart Apps Developer

Rotterdam, NL

Join Us

On this new R&D team, you will focus on enabling our end-users to deliver next generation apps using the Mendix platform. These smart apps are intelligent (with machine learning and AI), contextual (with personal, sensor, and location data), proactive (with push notifications and chat bots), and cloud-native (with microservices). Thanks to the openness of the Mendix app platform, you will bring capabilities from the most innovative cloud providers (IBM Bluemix, MS Azure, and AWS) to our rapid application development platform.

You could be our new team member if...

  • You're a fan of Agile, if not an evangelist
  • You're someone who likes to share ideas (and who can communicate them in English)
  • You find it rewarding that the technology you deliver will generate groundbreaking experiences for our clients and their end-users
  • Clean code makes you happy, but satisfied customers make you even happier
  • For you, work is also about having fun and playing the occasional game of foosball
  • We can check out your skills on Github or StackOverflow
  • Unix commands and virtual machines don't scare you

Why we like it here

  • Everyone is appreciated for their skills and ideas, regardless of their mother tongue, ability to grow a beard, or crazy hobbies
  • Monthly crafting days allow us to explore side projects or try out cool new technologies and share our experiences with the rest of the organization (we also have a fixed individual budget for visiting conferences)
  • Teams are autonomous and responsible for coming up with innovative ideas that contribute to the bigger picture

While we use Mendix, we are not tied to a single technology stack. We adopt new ones as the need arises. The list of technologies you'll encounter includes:

  • Java
  • Modeling
  • JavaScript
  • Cognitive Services (IBM Watson)
  • IoT (Amazon IoT)
  • Cloud Platforms (IBM Bluemix, MS Azure, and AWS)
  • DevOps

About Mendix

We're a company that creates software to create software. We started off building a modeling environment (let's say it was like Ruby on Rails meets Visio), but we have since evolved to support the entire software development lifecycle. From creating software to automatic deployments to ticketing, we offer it all. This brings on a ton of cool challenges, because we get to tackle the fundamental CS problems and solve them in new ways.

We're open to using the latest tech as long as it's a good match. Every month, we have crafting days when developers are invited to work on whatever they want. For example, people work on a bug that somehow never got prioritized, try out a cool new technology that may be useful to us (now or in the future), or build a Lego Mindstorms setup to control the elevator.

We like people who take ownership, and we try to give everyone as much freedom as possible. This means there's as little process as we can get away with, because we don't want to get in your way. We also strive to stay as flat as possible. Do you have an issue? Walk right into our CTO's office and bring it up. Despite the fact that our client base consists of large enterprises, we do not allow a bureaucratic culture to enter our R&D department. We value the start-up culture that has brought us so much success. We are a tech company, not a project-oriented organization.
