Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Tech – Development
Let’s think about your ideal world for a minute… Just imagine yourself at rebellious scale-up, disrupting a century old industry by digitizing an entire supply chain. You are part of a team of full stack engineers and Mendix developers from over 20 nationalities,multiple T-shaped squads on a mission to transform the flower world. You work in agile development lifecycles, making key decisions about the structure of big software projects and working in cross-functional teams -- read further -- as this isn’t your average Mendix developer job!
As a Mendix developer, creation and maintenance of web applications are your passion. You are excited to design, code and test new features and track incident management. You are an authority in code reviews, feedback, coaching and sharing your experience with your peers. You are working next to Joshua our CTO, who loves to share his experiences from various start up and scale ups in Silicon Valley, NYC, Hong Kong, and Berlin.
You’ve just imagined it all and now you’re asking yourself: What Happens Next?
Do you think you can help us becoming a smarter, more agile and data driven company by building state of the art Mendix apps? Well, we have just started with Mendix, but so far we have managed to save tons of hours of manual checks and calls for our internal teams, and this is only the beginning! Do you believe Mendix and RAD technologies are the future of application development? We do too.
You may be surprised that our entire business is driven by technology and data. Every bunch of flowers is powered by countless algorithms and lines of elegant (mostly!) code.
Before you make up your mind, let me tell you a bit more how the flowers and Engineering at bloomon are changing history.
How would you feel as part of a high caliber team that has a direct impact on our physical product - the flowers? Don’t worry, you don’t have to have a ‘design eye’ to make our bouquets, we have great people who do that … You will bring your expertise in building scalable applications, TDD and also your eagerness to learn and passion for change - from idea to MVP to finished product. Always encouraged by us to step out of your comfort zone, act like an owner, but always together, as one team.
If you are like us, you won’t be satisfied with only coding. You will enjoy the feel-good moment when you, together with the team, successfully ship wonderful products to our customers and create a big smile on their face. Because spreading happiness is what drives us.
You would need a good level of OOP in Java and at least 2 years of experience building Mendix applications. On top of that, you understand why testing shows the presence, not the absence of bugs. Fluency in SQL and some REST / SOAP API knowledge are also greatly appreciated.
Next to that, we value curiosity, strong engineering or similar background and… having fun together! Because we do enjoy a afternoon table tennis or a Mario kart race, as well as the Friday drinks and occasional boat trips!
We are better together and we expect everyone to come to work everyday equally willing to teach and to learn.
