What will you be doing?

As a Software Engineer, you will be working on one or more of our core software products. You work closely together with software engineers and other R&D disciplines in a multidisciplinary way to create awesome products. Our software team is an extremely enthusiastic and motivated team, so you’ll need to fit seamlessly into that working environment. It is your responsibility to write excellent code, conduct unit tests, and help refine user stories. With creative solutions, you’ll deliver a contribution to the solutions we implement in our products. This includes:

  • Reviewing code from peers
  • Testing code from peers
  • Working intensively with your Scrum team members
  • Joining the daily standup meetings and demos
  • Helping create awesome software

What will your team look like?

You will be working with talented software developers, software testers, UX designers, and product owners and you will help create the best software products. We set the bar high and we want you to help us get there.

What have we worked on recently?

  • We release new versions of our firmware and our 3D slicing software (Ultimaker Cura) every second month to offer new innovations to our customers
  • We are busy creating new products that will help our customers get even more out of their printers

What will your day in the office look like?

During the morning standup, you touch base with your team and discuss who will do what and whether anyone needs your help. You’ll work on developing a new feature for a couple of hours and then it’s lunchtime. Over lunch in the canteen, you hear about a cool new 3D model. You plan to 3D print it later at home. Afterwards, you have a meeting with a couple of developers to discuss the functionality of a new feature. Before you leave home, you review some code from one of your peers.

Do you fit this profile?

  • Bachelor’s degree in computing, computer science, and engineering or similar with a minimum of 3 years relevant working experience
