Job Description

We are looking for a full-stack developer with main focus on Java and backend.

If you are a person who likes Open Source and Open Data, you will love it here.

At MetaSolutions, you have a desk with sea view, social breakfasts together at the office for those who want, colleagues with passion for Open Data and Open Source and you get to build something that improves society.

We also offer flexible arrangements for remote work.

MetaSolutions is the Swedish market leader in Open Data

In 2011, a leading research group at KTH became a startup. That startup went on to become the market leader in Open Data solutions in Sweden. The company is today 11 people and owned by The Swedish Internet Foundation.

We help organizations like Skatteverket and Försäkringskassan to publish their data to the world. We build our product EntryScape in Open Source, because we believe in an open web.

Our customers get a modern metadata catalog together with presentations and visualizations. To see a live integration, see dataportal.se with their 7 650 examples of datasets and APIs with Open Data.

Our mission is to become a top provider for Open Data infrastructure in the world and to improve information management processes overall.

Your Role: Improve Society with Code

Your main area of responsibility will be to contribute to the development of the backend of our core product, but depending on your qualifications you may also work on our JavaScript frontend. The backend is built using a modern Java stack and deployed in a container-based infrastructure. DevOps will be an integral part of your assignment and a good level of knowledge and practical experience of administration of Linux systems is therefore required.

Your code will be used by a lot of well-known organisations in public sector.
