We are Arelion. You may not have heard of us; though, we are pretty sure you are using our network every day. As a Tier 1 Network provider, operating the most connected Internet backbone on the planet, we are quite passionate about what we do. If you peek under the lid, you’ll find all sorts of passionate geeks within; people who get out of bed each morning because they care for fiber cables, telco housing, routers, wavelength multiplex systems, and, even, software services. The one thing we have in common is our passion for the Internet and our honored customers.

The Software Engineering team is supporting the entire organization, shaping and building software solutions to, at the end of the day, delight our customers. Not everything we do is customer facing, but it’s for sure with the customers in mind. In order to make our colleagues and customers even happier, we need to strengthen the team by adding a Software Engineer. You need at least a couple of years of relevant experience in the field to be able to make your way into the team. More and broader experience is of course welcome, but not a hard requirement. We’ll offer the right candidate to chance to work with us in a multi-skilled, cross-border team supporting a multi-national organization with demanding customers. We’ll offer an open environment where you’ll be able to contribute, learn, and grow.

The main responsibilities are:

  • Contribute to the agile development and maintenance in the Software Engineering team
  • Ensure systems and integrations are well tested before UAT
  • Ensure your code and design is in line with our architecture and vision
  • Demo prototypes to business stakeholders

The main tasks are:

  • Design, develop and system test functionality in existing and new systems
  • Correct and test defects in existing systems and integrations
  • Set up and configure new infrastructure environments when needed
  • Learn new things every day
