An opportunity has arisen to join the DevOps team as a Mendix Software Developer. You will contribute to designing and developing new and existing applications for Zurich specifically within the digital world.

Using a low-code platform such as Mendix you will get the excitement of delivering innovative apps at a pace for our customers and the business. You could be part of an award-winning and rapidly growing DevOps Team.

You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with various Zurich Communities of Practice to understand concepts such as Agile and DevOps and share thinking and learning with a global Zurich audience.


Many of our employees work flexibly in a variety of different ways, including part-time, flexible hours, job share, an element of working from home or compressed hours. This is because we want the best people for our roles, and we recognise that sometimes those people aren’t available full-time. Please talk to us at the interview about the flexibility you may need.

  • Mendix Intermediate, Advanced or Expert certified
  • Low-code experience
  • Experience working in an Agile environment
  • Basic knowledge of Cloud concepts

  • Have excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills
  • Ability to creatively and analytically solve problems
