User-friendly Front-End 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 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. 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 7 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. Good user experience is key.

We are investing in a strong development setup where gated check-ins, automated unit- and integration tests are part of our daily work. DevOps is a methodology that we follow, and want to focus on even more going forward.

At the Foss Innovation Centre in Hillerød, which is our largest global hub, 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.

The latest cloud technologies

As our new front-end developer, you get to work with technologies such as Angular, JavaScript, 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. You will have ample opportunity to influence which tools we need to implement market-leading digital services.

About the job

Depending on your skills and areas of interest, you will:

  • Design new features together with Product Owner, product specialists and other stakeholders
  • Design and implement features in Angular & JavaScript
  • Ensure test and documentation of your work using automated test frameworks
  • Write unit-, integration- and end-2-end tests as part of the everyday development flow
  • Groom, estimate and plan backlog items for upcoming sprints in collaboration with the product owner and team members

About you

You are a talented Front-End developer, who wants to make a difference. Your curiosity helps you acquire new knowledge quickly, and you take pride in staying up to date with the latest trends within software development. Just like us!


We expect you to come with a background as a software engineer, IT-engineer, computer scientist or similar, with preferably 4 years of relevant experience from a similar position in an agile environment

You are an excellent and experienced front-end programmer with profound knowledge about JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS

You have experience with modern cloud hosting and service platforms, preferably Microsoft Azure and you have profound experience consuming REST services

You speak and write English fluently – Danish is a plus, but not a requirement


To be successful in the job, you should know a good user experience and focus on data security, speed, and reliability. You are a team player, and knows the difference between working in a team and working as a team.

You have a can-do attitude – you are not afraid to solve a task outside of your specialty and you believe that testing is an integrated part of making a good solution.

We help food and agricultural producers limit the number of human errors, and scale their business faster, smarter, and better. We call it analytics beyond measure.
