Senior Developer or Architect to help move Edlund’s en­ter­pri­se ar­chi­tec­tu­re forward


Do you see the benefits of an event-driven architecture and cloud-based SaaS for an enterprise application? And do you have hands-on experience with asynchronous event-driven communication and event sourcing with for example Apache Kafka. Then this might be something for you…

About the job

We are looking for a Senior Developer or Architect to help take the next steps of moving Edlund’s traditional 3-tier monolithic application towards an event-based architecture with smaller SaaS cloud components and a central event broker based on Apache Kafka.

You will join Edlund’s team for technological innovation where our primary focus right now is on taking the first implementation steps on this journey. From time to time we do, however, also get involved in a variety of other tasks and projects. On this account we have recently helped with the introduction of Azure DevOps in our development organization and the development of Edlund’s first cloud-based Kubernetes service. 

As part of the team, you will be working with all parts of the development cycle. The initial analysis typically involves designing and prototyping, but also planning and aligning with key stakeholders. During implementation you will do hands-on development, refine the designs as we learn more, collaborate with operations (devops) to ensure a smooth transition to go-live, and communicate and coach other Edlund teams enabling them to reap the full benefits of our efforts.

We are right now a small 4-person team. We believe in working closely together, but at the same time giving each team member a high degree of freedom. In return we expect you to show a high degree of accountability. This also means that you must be able to openly structure and drive your work and together with the rest of the team, take responsibility for reaching our common goals.

Your qualifications

We expect that you:

  • Have MSc or PhD within a relevant field and experience with development of software from either industry or university
  • Have at least a few years of experience with event-driven development based on for example Apache Kafka
  • Are fluent in English (written and spoken)

We also consider it a plus if you have experience with one or more of the following areas:

  • Design and implementation of enterprise systems, devops, domain-driven development
  • Experience with development of financial software and perhaps even knowledge about or experience with Edlund’s systems

About you

  • Open and pragmatic
  • Able to drive and structure your own and others’ work
  • Proven communication skills that you can use to get your message across and to help others, colleagues and customers alike.
