Software Engineer in Test - Backend

Mendix, Rotterdam

We help enterprises achieve their digital goals

Duration: Full-Time


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.

Mendix is a visual, model-based IDE to create mobile and web apps. Our team is responsible for the Runtime part. This entails the interpretation of our domain model and exposing all the functionality that our platforms provides to the client components.

Our R&D team works with the latest technologies to create our innovative platform - React, Node.js, TypeScript, Cloudfoundry/Pivotal/AWS, C#, Scala, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, etc. And because more than 40,000 developers from 4,000 organizations around the world rely on Mendix, each commit has the potential to impact not just them but millions of end users.

Why we like it here:

  • We are developing an interpreter, comparable to building a new JVM
  • We have challenging topics that only a few companies cope with
  • We are changing the way software will be developed in the future
  • We're thorough, we like to get to the bottom of things; clear answers are more important than deadlines
  • We choose the solution to our problems with the stack to support that

You could be our new team member if:

  • You are a test engineer with strong affinity for development or a developer, who is specialized in and with strong affinity for the testing side of development
  • You'll refactor code to make it more testable, write test frameworks, setup performance and automated tests in collaboration with the team
  • You have a strong affinity to backend testing. If Selenium is your solution to automation, this is probably not the job for you (we don't even have a UI)
  • If you find a bug, you may be also the one fixing it
  • You don't hesitate to set up a new framework or learn Scala
  • You want to become part of a work environment in which your ideas are valued
  • You're comfortable working as part of a scrum team
  • At regular intervals, we go on a team evening to socialize and have fun outside of work. Last time we went to an escape room and had dinner and drinks afterwards

Our Guiding Principles

While we live on different continents, speak different languages, and work on different things, we are bound by our “MendixBlue” guiding principles.  Being “MendixBlue” means that you live the culture, and you consistently improve it as we grow.  It’s kind of a big deal.

We put the customer first.  Without our customers, we have no business.  So, if you act in the best interest of our customers, always…you belong here.

We think big. We work to have a meaningful, lasting impact on the world.  So, if you aim high and think long term…you belong here.

We innovate.  We want to be what happens next.  So, if you ask “what if?” and work to find a way or make one…you belong here. 

We nurture talent.  We look, not just at the sum of what an individual has done, but at the potential of who they can be.  So, if you’re up for learning from your failures…you belong here.

We hear every voice.  Inflated egos don’t last here, humility does.  So, if you share credit and ensure that the best ideas win – regardless of who they come from…you belong here.

We own it.  If something needs doing, we do it. So, if you focus on the outcome, and take initiative to get it done…you belong here.

We have fun.  We use laughter as a common language.  We can ask for help and we’re happy to give it.  So, if you find joy and purpose in what you do…you belong here.
