Who are You:
You are a software engineer/data scientist with experience in Deep Learning.

You’re the innovator we need if you have:

  • MS degree in Computer Science or similar education. Or demonstrable working experience in software / data engineering
  • 2+ years industry experience in machine learning field
  • Proven software engineering skills in one or more programming languages, like Python, Scala, Java or C#
  • Experience with SQL to manipulate data and draw insights from large data sets
  • Experience with cloud development and technologies, such as AWS or Azure
  • Experience with Linux-based operating systems
  • Team player with strong communication skills and good command of English language
  • A drive to learn and master new technologies and techniques

Bonus points:

  • Experience with Keras, TensorFlow/MXnet
  • Experience with Spark, Hadoop, Pig or other MapReduce-based architectures

Experience a culture like no other at Mendix:

  • We’re flexible in adopting new technologies and methodologies if that makes the product better or our lives easier. Each scrum team is free to choose its own tech stack, so you can always try that latest new idea, framework or design pattern. Our teams are small so that you can have a real influence. We care about open standards, and we’re also big fans of Test-Driven Development. We’re constantly improving our Continuous Integration process, which monitors the quality of our product and makes the lives of our developers and testers easier.
  • 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), build an automated goal counting mechanism for the football table, or a Lego Mindstorms setup to control the elevator.
  • We like people who take ownership, and 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. Even though 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.
