Company Details

Work on a cutting edge product

The tech stack you’ll work with

Python, SQL, C++, DevOps, Cloud services, Git, ROS

Build and lead an effective software team

Right from the start, one of your main goals will be developing and launching a desktop application for clients by the end of the year. The software is a pre-flight and post-flight tool for operators to manage the hardware. It includes flight planning, data processing and data visualisation, and storage.

You will be part of the software team that currently consists of one software engineer plus two external software developers, guiding the team through the development of the application and owning key components of the software while implementing features and functionalities.

Your main area of responsibility is to manage software releases; you will motivate, and ensure that the team has the necessary information and tools to excel and you will be planning capacity and ensure that the team delivers according to agreed criteria and road map, and you will still have the opportunity to dive deep into the application and code on a daily basis.

In short, your responsibilities and daily/routine tasks as the Head of Software will be:

  • Creating high-level product specifications and design documents
  • Providing the development team with architectural blueprints to follow
  • Guiding and assisting the development team throughout the process
  • Ensuring that you and the team adhere to development schedules and deadlines
  • Presenting regular progress reports and setting goals
  • Testing the final product to ensure it is completely functional and meets requirements
  • Updating software solutions as required
  • Communicating system requirements to software development teams
  • Evaluating and selecting appropriate software or hardware and suggest integration methods

A skilled technical leader and communicator

You are a highly skilled technical architect and technical leader with at least 5 years of experience. You are able to motivate your colleagues in the software goal and you are able to translate the management’s vision and backlog into tangible goals and tasks.

You’re a great engineer with Python experience, having experience with desktop applications as well as GUI – maybe you also have experience with web applications. You have some experience with technical leadership and you are a great communicator across all levels in the organisation, having the pedigree to engage with stakeholders in the organisation.

As a person, you’re ambitious and eager to learn and develop as an engineer and a leader. You are organised and able to maintain the focus of the whole team towards a vision. You can understand and manage the bigger picture while taking on day-to-day tasks that naturally come in a growing start-up.

Join a diverse team

You’ll join a hard-working, ambitious and creative organisation where everybody works together towards a common goal of creating a flexible, easily accessible and cost-effective antenna testing solution. The company consists of 21 people spread across 16 different nationalities. This creates an inclusive, fun and social work environment where everybody can learn from each other’s differences.
