Grow with us – Start your career at IU International University!

Support our Engineering Team at one of our locations or remotely across Germany, starting immediately in full-time as Senior Software Engineer (m/f/d).

Our development teams are domain teams that fully plan, implement and maintain their functional components. We develop a specialized ERP system dedicated to the entire academic career path of our students. Our technology stack is based on AWS, Docker, Kafka, Nest.js (TS), and Vue 2/3. DDD is essential to us. Our culture is built on trust, transparency, and participation.


  • Support us on the last meters in the replacement of our previous system and work with us on the future direction of our specialized ERP system.
  • As part of a domain team, you will take part in the technical direction and help determine the course.
  • Work in a team (6 people) and across teams with up to 50 developers, product owners, architects and UX experts.
  • Operate in an organization that is agile all the way to the top.


  • You have been working in software development for years using relevant technologies (AWS, Docker, Kafka, Nest.js, JavaScript, TypeScript, Vue 2/3, DDD).
  • You are able to report on proven architectural successes.
  • You act as an experienced team member and as a mentor.
  • You communicate accurately and transparently.
  • Agile software development methods are self-evident for you and mean more than just advertising tactics.


  • Shape your career: Rapid growth opens up many new opportunities for you. Tell us about your dream career and we’ll help you make it happen.
  • Work from wherever you want …: Modern tools and video meetings make it possible: with IU, the boundaries between here and there blur. You want to work from abroad for a while? No problem thanks to our WorkFlex benefits.
  • … and flexible time: It’s your job: We trust you and give you the greatest possible freedom to organize yourself.
  • You have the choice: You are free to choose your equipment, because everyone has its own preferences when it comes to hardware.
  • Take your knowledge to a new level: Benefit from a 100% discount on tuition fees for an IU combined degree in the tech sector and many other free training courses. There is always something new to learn.
  • Get a good rest: we push ourselves every day to go above and beyond. But we also take the time to recharge our batteries: with 30 days of annual vacation for all employees. Need some time off? How about a sabbatical?
