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.

The Mendix Cloud team is responsible for delivering a high quality, high availability Cloud environment where our customers can run their Mendix apps. We develop and run the Mendix Cloud infrastructure and services that offer deployment, operations and monitoring.

You’ll help our customers drive digital innovation by:

  • Building, shipping, and maintaining complex infrastructure at scale. The Mendix Cloud hosts tens of thousands of mission-critical customer applications, powering anything from insurance quotes, to ensuring that PostNL can deliver millions of parcels on time.
  • Specifically, you will be part of the team developing the backups infrastructure for the Mendix Cloud. Our tech stack is primarily based on Java,Spring Boot, AWS S3, AWS RDS, and Postgres.
  • We work as part of a scrum team, in 2 week sprints.
  • You will help ensure all systems are always available by also being responsible for running them in production. We are a team with 3rd line on-call support duty.

We’re looking for you if:

  • You have 5+ years of software development experience in Java.
  • You have proven experience building database driven applications. You understand the impact of inefficient queries on an RDBMS, and have a strong grasp of DB fundamentals (we use Postgres, but MySQL or MSSQL experience is fine too).
  • You have proven experience building highly-scalable, highly-available, multi-region, and distributed systems and microservice architectures.
  • You have 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're able to choose the right AWS tools to solve the task at hand.
  • You have experience with the Spring Boot framework.
  • You have a good knowledge of Unix/Linux fundamentals.
  • You understand the DevOps mindset: you build it, you run it.
  • You're passionate about code quality, and know how to lead by example: from a clean Git history, to well thought-out unit and integration tests.
  • You have 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.
Experience a culture like no other at Mendix

A culture where we’re focused on results – not “boxes” and “rules”, in a relaxed environment with the coolest office in the Netherlands + great view of the Erasmusbrug.

Where people take ownership and enjoy 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.

Where everyone is appreciated for their skills and ideas, regardless of background or mother tongue, the flexibility to take care of a family, or to have a crazy hobby.

Monthly crafting days that allow you to explore side projects or try out cool new technologies and share our experiences with the rest of the organization.

We value the start-up culture that has brought us so much success. We are a tech company, not a project-oriented organization.

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.

Make your career at Mendix.
