The superheroes we are currently recruiting...

While some people were born superheros, we’re on the lookout for the type who gained their powers through study and experience. To be a superhero at SWARCO, of course, you should have some skills. Currently, we are primarily looking for C++ and JAVA specialists in Germany.

As such, candidates will ideally have a degree in computer science, engineering, electrical engineering or a comparable education and additionally two to three years of professional experience in software development or C++ programming. Good knowledge of Linux and Windows operating systems and experience with tools such as Git, Jira/Confluence, Docker/VMware and Kubernetes are also desirable.

As a C++ programmer, it would be cool if you are also proficient in multiple programming languages and have experience with legacy systems. IP networking and communication protocol skills are a bonus. As a Java Hero, it is of course great if you are familiar with CI (Continuous Integration) and agile working (Scrum, Kanban) and maybe even have "Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development” certification.

To apply,

you need not be able to do everything, and certainly not everything perfectly. At our company, training and personal development are key parts of our corporate philosophy. You should be able to communicate in German and English and work independently and in a structured manner.

If your profile matches our requirements, you might just be the superhero we are looking for! The rest you can learn on the job.

So don't be afraid to apply.
