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. It is imperative that the services we develop are intuitive and easy to use by anyone – at the back of pickup trucks in vine groves as well as in high tech labs across the world. The good user experience is key.
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
At the Innovation Centre in Hillerød, which is our largest global hub, our team has just moved into a brand new building in April 2019. We sit in an open office space with lots of room and light. Our building includes a gym and green trails just outside the door, and we have a wide number of clubs and activities run by employees, which you are welcome to join.
About the job

- Ensuring test and documentation of your work using automated test frameworks
- Writing unit- and integration tests as part of the everyday development flow
