Systems Engineer for mission-critical battle management software


Aarhus, Denmark.


Do you want to implement and develop new features for one of our main products, and are you ready to take on the challenge and work with mission-critical software for Defence?

Help us develop new features for our well-established product, SitaWare, and join a team with high ambitions.


A look into the role

In this role, you will be working in our Defence Business Unit, located at the top of our tower with one of the best views in Aarhus. You will be joining a well-established full-stack team consisting of a Scrum Master, Developers, and Testers. The team is a part of a program consisting of 5 scrum teams with approximately seven colleagues in each team. They all work with developing new features for our android product, SitaWare Frontline.

As a Systems Engineer, you will become a vital player in assuring deliveries of new product functionality to customers worldwide. You will be joining a strategically important program and delivering solutions for the Defence area internationally.

Your daily tasks will involve...

  • As a feature lead, you will have the responsibility to develop new features for the program. We develop in TypeScript, Angular and Java.
  • We work with mission-critical software and making mistakes can have the consequence between life and death. Therefore, we expect you to ensure high quality in what you do. This involves unit testing, robot testing, reviewing code. But don’t worry, the responsibility does not only lie on your shoulders. Everything we code, we ensure has always been viewed by more than one set of eyes.
  • We praise the magic of brainstorming and talking with each other. So, you will be involved in designing and implementing all the new and cool features together with your amazing team of Domain Experts, Architects and User Experience designers.
  • You will also be involved in maintaining the team’s components of the products codebase.
  • At Systematic we work in Scrum teams – it is not something we just say – we do it! We will expect you to play an active part in the meetings and that you see as much benefit from it as we do.
  • You will also collaborate closely with your team to deliver the monthly increment and half-yearly release.


What we need...


  • You preferable have a Master education within Computer Science, Engineering or similar. But if you have a bachelor education, don’t hesitate to apply
  • You have at least two years of experience from a role similar to what we are looking for – preferable from the Defence domain, but it is not a requirement
  • It is a must that you have experience with some parts of the tech stack. Java, Angular and Typescript is not a stranger to you. You might also have heard about DevOps or any other technologies that will be beneficial to the team
  • Working in Scrums teams based on agile methodologies is everyday life to you. Furthermore, Systematic is CMMI5 certified and therefore you must be motivated by following our process


Who you are...


  • You have the drive and ambition to work with mission-critical software and help us develop new and innovative features to support the needs of our customers.
  • You thrive in a team that works closely together, who are passionate about their job and who always have time for fun and jokes with each other.
  • You want to be part of a young team that is still finding its way to work the best together, and you enjoy being part of building up teams.
  • The team loves to welcome new colleagues, and you will do the same.
  • You are fluent in English and thrive in an international working environment.
  • We work with security classified projects and, as a Systematic employee, you require a security clearance. For more information about security clearance, please visit: https://systematic.com/en-gb/careers/security-clearance/


What’s in it for you?


You will be joining Systematic, named one of the most attractive workplaces by IT Talent 2020. Together, we have a passion for supplying the most robust solutions to our customers and are inspired by the world of sport; we are conducting research in-house on creating 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 deliver world-class software. Internally, we work with CMMI and critical elements of Lean, Scrum/Agile and ITIL. This also means that we prioritize your professional and personal development and allow you to attend a wide range of courses and become part of our knowledge network.

At Systematic we prioritize employee development. We encourage our employees to acquire new skills as well as formal certification of their capabilities. We have a motto saying 'It is better to educate people and risk that they leave than do nothing and risk that they stay.'

New employees often achieve one or more certifications within their first three months at Systematic – most being related to Microsoft, Java, and Oracle technologies. These equip them to participate in a wide range of projects. Systematic employees are also encouraged to take courses in more commercially oriented subjects, such as project finance and contract management.

In Systematic, you have the opportunity to choose what development means for you. Here you can choose whether you want to pursue a management track or a specialist track.

Moreover, we regularly organize social events. We have a wide-ranging onboarding process lined up to give you a thorough introduction to all our methods, procedures, IT security, etc.
