Join our friendly and fast-paced R&D Software Department at FOSS – an international company delivering complex instruments and world-class innovative solutions to the food and agriculture industries.

The R&D Software Department in FOSS comprises of more than 80 software engineers and constitutes about one third of the R&D organization in FOSS - and we keep expanding. Our development department is split into business segment teams and a platform team. The business segment teams deliver the SW for the end products, whereas the platform team controls and develops the common functionality and features for instruments.

We are looking for you as a backend developer to work closely together with your colleagues in our instrument development team. Your core team will consist of other software developers, a tester and a Product Owner. Together, we follow an agile development process and welcome your contribution.

We value cooperation and take pride in having good team spirit, and we always consider how we can assist each other in reaching our goals of delivering high quality products.

Your key responsibilities will be:

  • Developing software (and making first verification)
  • Being part of designing the implemented solutions
  • Supporting our testers during validation
  • Troubleshooting and bug fixing
  • Following the agile processes
  • Participating in the daily teamwork

Your daily workplace will be at the FOSS Innovation Centre in Hillerød, Denmark.

Your personal skills

You have an analytical mindset and a methodical approach to software development, as well as the ability of bringing a positive attitude into the development team. You have courage to flag problem areas, and a flair for doing this in a positive and constructive manner.

People respect and like to work with you, because of your technical competencies and ability to communicate complex concepts in a concise manner. You master the art of simplicity. You promote continuous improvement to the way of working for you and your team.

We are an international company and, thus, we expect your English to be fluent.


What you can expect

A challenging job in an international and innovative company, that is small enough for you to get high influence in the job, and big enough for complex instrument development as well as career development.

Our company culture is flat, informal, open-minded and team spirited. The size of our company allows for independent, dynamic, and fast decisions, and you will have the opportunity for constant learning through new projects, technologies, and market opportunities. We strive to use the latest technology with updated tools etc.

The R&D Software department is responsible for developing software for our analytical instruments and we have many exciting new projects in the pipeline. These require world-class software solutions and a structured platform to support a wide variety of industry leading instrument solutions.
