Driven Software Developer for FOSS Digital Business
At FOSS, we are driven by a strong sense of purpose, and we hope you are too.
A rapidly growing world population means that the global food production will have to increase by 60% by 2050 to meet demand. We want to come up with smarter ways to make the best use of agricultural resources, and help eliminate food waste. Around 80% of grain and 85% of milk traded on the world market is analysed using FOSS solutions, so improvements we develop can truly make a global difference. If that sounds like something you would like to work for, then read on.
How we work
FOSS is on a steep growth trajectory these years, and we are ramping up on software development in our Digital Business department. You will join 12 highly skilled colleagues in our Scrum-based Digital Services development team. We are on a mission to ensure FOSS’ transition into the digital domain by providing value-adding digital services to our customers.
We work closely with product management to understand user needs, and based on their feedback, we deliver the digital services that provide the best value for our customers.
We are investing in a strong development setup where gated check-ins, automated unit- and integration tests is part of our daily work. DevOps is a methodology that we follow, and want to focus on even more going forward.
“The time it takes from an idea to become reality and available for our customers has been brought down to a few days thanks to a strong development team, amazing new cloud solutions and a strong DevOps mentality.” – Jens Christensen, Product Owner
The latest technologies
As one of our new software developers, you get to work with technologies such as C#, .NET Core and Azure to develop new user-friendly cloud-based and data-driven web solutions, as well as to improve our existing portfolio of online solutions.
An international mindset and the latest technologies are two central components in the way we work. “By joining FOSS, you will step into a truly international environment and a global organisation. We work with the latest technologies, and we intend to stay ahead of the game. Neither products nor developers will be left behind, when the world around us moves at an amazing speed. You will have ample opportunity to influence which tools we need to implement market leading digital services.” says Jacob Bodholdt, Head of Development at your new department, FOSS Digital Business.
