‘Test’-driven development: Our path to continuous learning

In the ever-evolving world of software development, staying current with the latest advancements is not just beneficial – it’s essential. Recently, a team of our talented engineers had the opportunity to attend a Test Automation Summit in Johannesburg. The summit was more than just a learning experience for the team; it was a chance to connect with fellow professionals, exchange ideas, and gain fresh perspectives. Our engineers came back buzzing with excitement and eager to put what they learned into practice.

Esmari Swart, Associate Automation Test Engineer, shared their thoughts on the experience:

“Personally, I found the summit to be an enriching experience. The standout moments for me were the insightful presentations and engaging discussions with industry professionals. I came away with valuable insights and new ideas that I’m excited to implement within our team. I’m confident that the knowledge gained from the summit will benefit our team immensely!”

When our employees grow, we grow

The enthusiasm and knowledge our engineers brought back from the Test Automation Summit underscore the importance of investing in our employees’ development. At Nintex, we recognize that our employees are our most valuable asset. Their growth and development are not just crucial for their personal and professional fulfillment but also for the continued success and innovation of our company. Our commitment to employee growth is reflected in our comprehensive Learning & Development (L&D) programs designed to nurture talent, foster continuous learning, and enable career advancement.

The Development Scholarship Program

One of the flagship initiatives of our L&D strategy is the Development Scholarship Program. This program is designed to provide our people the opportunity to pursue professional aspirations through various forms of development. It covers the cost of developmental activities or programs in support of an individual’s career goals, whether related to their current role or future position they’re striving for.

The Program supports and encourages Nintex employees in taking the initiative to develop new skills and drive professional growth in tandem with other learning and development opportunities. Whether it’s attending industry conferences, earning a certification, or participating in a workshop, the Program empowers our employees to take charge of their professional development journey.

Senior Learning and Development Lead, Ateesha Gersch, shares:

“This is the first time we’re offering the Development Scholarship to our employees globally, so we’re eagerly monitoring interest with the hope to continue this initiative in the future. It’s been encouraging to see motivated team members take charge of their professional development and map out their broader development plans in Culture Amp. Those goals are now in closer reach with the assistance of the Development Scholarship. To date we’ve funded a wide variety of activities including conferences, certifications, and courses on topics including career planning, analytics, and ecosystem-led growth.”


At Nintex, we’re immensely proud of initiatives like the Development Scholarship Program that empower our team members to pursue their aspirations and continue their professional journey with confidence. We’re not just building a company; we’re fostering a community where everyone’s potential can shine. Together, we look forward to many more milestones of shared success and innovation. Here’s to growing and thriving together, today and always.
