Stockholm - Järfälla, Sweden
Closing date: 6 April 2023

We are looking for engineers who want to join us in developing the next generation of electronic surveillance and defense systems used in platforms such as Global Eye and Gripen. You will develop complex systems for orchestrating distributed subsystem operations in embedded platforms to evaluate, aggregate and present critical mission and diagnostics data to operators

Your role

When you join us, you will become a member of one of our software engineering teams developing system and platform control software. This entails collection of system diagnostics, managing system configuration, orchestrating subsystem functionality and interfacing external systems. We implement this functionality in applications on specialized hardware running embedded Linux or real-time operating systems.

We are currently developing new products and need to expand our teams. The problems we face require creative problem solving in close collaboration with your colleagues. Together with your team, you will design, implement and test solutions to practical problems.

The main tasks are:

  • C++ development for system and platform control, as outlined above, including testing and optimization
  • System design and architecture
  • Contributing to the success of the team by helping your colleagues
  • Solving the problems faced today, while taking into account the likely problems down the road

Your profile

You are an inquisitive individual and you enjoy interacting with people. You ask questions to move forward. You appreciate the balance between doing things right and doing things fast depending on the situation at hand.

Required skills:

  • Bachelor degree or higher in Computer Science, Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering or similar
  • Minimum three years of relevant experience
  • Communication skills in Swedish and English, verbal and written

Desired skills:

  • Drive to gather the information required to solve a problem

This position requires that you pass a security vetting based on the current regulations around/of security protection. For positions requiring security clearance additional obligations on citizenship may apply.

What you will be a part of

You will be welcomed to a team consisting of driven, engaged and friendly people applying modern development methodologies and working continuously to improve their processes and tools. You will get to work on perhaps one of the most exciting technical products developed in Sweden. You will get to contribute to the safety of your neighbors while also getting the opportunity to affect how we achieve this. You will get the opportunity to try different aspects of what we do here where one workday can look wildly different from another. You will be part of planning the “how do we do this” as well as executing the “what we will do”, emphasizing the quality of ideas rather than who brought them to the table.
