Job Description

Mendix is on a mission to enable anyone in any organization – from the marketing coordinator to the software developer to the CEO – to create things that are transformational for their company.  We are fundamentally reinventing the way applications are created and we’re reinventing the future of software development.  Sounds ambitious, right?  We agree.

Not to brag, but nearly 4,000 organizations worldwide, including KLM, Medtronic, Merck, and Philips, rely on Mendix to build web and mobile applications.  Thousands of our customers use our platform to delight their clients and empower their employees. It’s no surprise that we’re a recognized Leader by Gartner and Forrester in a red-hot market expected to exceed $21 billion by 2022.  Ok, maybe we did want to brag a little.  But we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished…and…we’re humble enough to admit that we need you to make us even more effective.

If you are an experienced Cloud developer and want to make a difference for tens of thousands of developers in our community, we have a opportunity for you! As a company, we’re in constant communication with our community, but we need your field experience to improve our product and take it to the next level.

Take the Mendix Developer Portal for example, there’s a need to help new developers discover the Mendix Platform, engage them with content and help tailored to their needs, and teach them to make beautiful applications. When you are using Mendix daily, you’ll be buzzing with ideas that can have a huge impact on our developer community.

And if we take a look at the Mendix Cloud Portal, the need for self-service, easy scalability and putting CI/CD in place is paramount. If you have experience administering Cloud application environments, you might have some ideas you can turn into real solutions here, on Mendix cloud, but also on 3rd party Cloud environments.

In the end, whichever part of our online platform you want to work on, we have enough challenges for you. If you have a vision on how the team and Mendix should move forward, we’d love to discuss these with you.

As a Software Developer for Backups in Mendix Cloud Platform you’ll help drive digital innovation by:

    • Building, shipping and maintaining the user facing platform responsible for Mendix’ successful cloud offering.
    • Taking responsibility for the success our customers achieve with Mendix’ aPaaS platform.
    • Your scope covers the tooling our customers use to manage, monitor and run their Mendix applications on the Mendix cloud and 3rd party clouds.
    • Assuring all the platform runs smoothly in production because our customers use it for their mission critical production systems.
    • Conquering technical challenges by finding innovative solutions. You’ll have the opportunity to harness all your skills to make a difference in your role.
We’re looking for you if you have:

    • 5+ years of software development experience in Java for backend
    • experience building highly-scalable, highly-available, multi-region, and distributed systems and microservice architectures
    • proven experience (at least 3 years) building cloud-based solutions. This would ideally be on AWS, but other clouds are fine too. AWS components that we use include: S3, RDS, Route 53, Kinesis, Lambda & SQS. You will be able to choose the right AWS tools to solve the task at hand
    • proven experience building database driven applications and understand the impact of inefficient queries on an RDBMS
    • good knowledge of Unix/Linux fundamentals
    • a DevOps mindset: you build it, you run it
    • a passion about code quality, and know how to lead by example: from a clean Git history, to well thought-out unit and integration tests
    • a home address inside the Netherlands or another EU country.
Even better (but not essential!) if you have experience with:

    • developing backup/restore tooling on public cloud platforms
    • IaC tools such as Terraform, Puppet, or Ansible
    • Containerisation technology and orchestration, e.g. Kubernetes/Docker & CloudFoundry
    • CI/CD tooling such as Jenkins.
    • Mendix low-code application development
    • TDD & BDD and know when and when not to use it.
And as person you are:

    • approachable, open minded
    • an effective communicator and you like to be part of a team
    • with great attitude where you walk the extra mile if needed
    • strive for mastery in anything you do or own
    • detailed oriented
    • boundary less and take ownership
    • a critical thinker
    • creative and solution oriented.
