Senior Systems Engineer for mission-critical product in Defence


Are you an experienced full-stack or back-end developer? Do you want to work for an international software company where your code will help save lives? Are you naturally passionate about methods and processes and analytical by nature? If so, you may be our new Senior Systems Engineer.


Your code will help defence forces make the right decisions
At Systematic, we create exceptional solutions that give customers a user-friendly overview of complex situations, which helps to save lives. As a Senior Systems Engineer, you will be involved in developing new features of the highest quality, and producing code which is easy to understand and maintain. You will join a component team at SitaWare Headquarters, our flagship for defence industry products, which is staffed by more than 45 employees, of whom about 30 are developers. The programme comprises four component teams, which each has 1-2 dedicated testers, an architect, a UX designer, a product owner as well as a project manager. Every day, these teams are engaged in solving complex tasks in a large code base spanning many different technologies, for example Java and Scala. You will participate in running and optimising the existing code base to ensure its high quality, while contributing to a modularised architecture and greater testability.


You will immerse yourself in the following tasks:

  • Developing code of the highest quality which is easy for others to maintain and understand.
  • Developing features in accordance with customers’ needs, quality goals and timetables.
  • Continually improving the existing code base while focusing on performance, security and maintenance.
  • Ensuring the quality of your work and taking pride in understanding complex solutions and customer challenges.
  • Designing, breaking down, estimating and continuously following up.


The project is split between two locations in Aarhus and Bucharest, and as a result you can expect a limited degree of travel to our office in Romania.


Working with the best-qualified colleagues in Denmark
You will be joining Systematic, which has been named one of the most attractive workplaces by IT Talent 2020. Together, we have a passion for supplying the strongest solutions to our customers, and inspired by the world of sport, we are conducting research in-house on how we can create a motivating, winner culture.


We are continually challenging each other, our work processes and our technologies so that we are always at the forefront of developments and able to deliver world-class software. Internally, we work with CMMI and the best aspects of Lean, Scrum/Agile and ITIL. This also means that we prioritise your professional and personal development, and give you the opportunity to attend a wide range of courses and become part of our knowledge network.


Moreover, we regularly organise social events, and obviously have a wide-ranging onboarding process lined up to give you a thorough introduction to all our methods, processes and IT security etc.


You are ambitious for the product and your development
We envisage that you hold a BSc or MSc degree within computer science or similar, and that you have min. five years of experience as a developer – ideally related to product development. You are focused and ambitious by nature, and enjoy cooperating in your daily work to ensure the team achieves the best possible result. You understand complex issues, and successfully manage to make the complex simple by means of your methodical and structured approach. You enjoy working in close collaboration with your colleagues within an agile environment, and are able to take the lead in defining and developing the solution.


You are experienced at developing in Java or Scala, and ideally possess knowledge of Java EE and WildFly. Alternatively, you are experienced at developing single-page applications in AngularJS, Angular or TypeScript. It is also a plus if you have experience at validating and optimising performance in larger Java EE-based solutions, or experience with the development and validation of solutions focused on IT security.


Moreover, you should have experience at developing products that have introduced you to the following:

  • Product and code quality
  • Automated tests
  • Security
  • Performance
  • Efficient development environment
  • Continuous delivery


Last but not least, you speak and write fluent Danish and English.
