"Well, we're waiting..."
One of the most organically grown companies we work with is waiting for a senior .NET developer who can lead the development of their new product; a solution used by their clients for fleet management and GPS tracking.
The company aren't even going to start on the architecture until you arrive, so get a move on will ya! Quick turnaround time for interviews, read on for full details:
Like some of you reading this, the company started in the early 90's. It was initially an IT consultancy, but demand saw the the company move into developing products of its own.
The growth has been very organic and slow-paced. I mean the whole company only has around 30 people today, but they're international, and they are used by over 400 clients all over the world. Their success has come from continued good business, and continued technical prowess and innovation. It is rare that they hire externally, so you really need to take advantage of this. I won't be writing adverts for them again anytime soon.
The team feels like a family. The culture within the business has been driving success for decades. Turnover is very low because people are very happy here. In the interview process, you will meet a lot of the team so this is something you'll be a part of before you even join. Think inclusive, supportive, fun, and passionate.
The team work from home 2 days a week at the most, so this will be best suited to someone who loves an office environment, socialising, and physically going to work.
As a lead developer, you will be heading up software development of a new product (their 3rd) that will become a key player in the company. The product is a fleet management/GPS system that will be built on a SaaS platform from scratch.
You will be vital in all stages of this product life-cycle; planning & architecture, development, implementation, and user-feedback upon deployment. Expect architectural duties, hands-on development, leading stand-ups, working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders, writing reports, and ultimately being responsible for an entire product.
This product will effectively be your "baby". You need to look after it. It will be hard. But it will be rewarding. Maybe even 'the best thing that's ever happened to me', as parents often say.
Their tech stack is: .NETCore, C#, MS SQL, Blazor, REST APIs and RabbitMQ, hosted on Azure Cloud.
To be the parent that this product deserves, you're going to need:
- 7+ years of senior .NET experience (ASP.NET, .NETCore), preferably working on full project life-cycles.
- Experience working with Entity Framework
- Leadership experience, and a strong desire to have influence and responsibility.
Like I said, being a parent can be so rewarding. Here are some of the things that'll make it worthwhile:
- Up to 70,000 SEK per month, ITP1 Pension, choice of 5 or 6 weeks of holiday, and your share of 25% of the annual profits (last year it was around 50K SEK each, this year it is expected to be even more).
- Stepping stone to the rest of your career: Whether you do this internally within the company, or somewhere else, this role will catapult you into more senior roles such as Project Manager, Solutions Architect, Product Owner and beyond. Imagine it on your CV; "I devised, developed, and led a full project life-cycle for a brand-new product used by hundreds of clients all over the world. This product was crucial to the growth of the company from 2023 to 202X". Sounds good doesn't it.
- Modern & fun: The company is working with some of the most modern tech out there, and you'll probably be happy to know there is ZERO Legacy code. Like, none at all. Zilch.
- You hear this all the time, but... This role combines the influence and visibility of a start-up (only 30 people in the whole company, all in Gothenburg), but with the stability and security of a large international company. The company have a reputation for being one of the most authentic and sound-minded businesses in Sweden, so you are in very safe and capable hands.
