Westermo is currently recruiting software developers to join our software team that develops our network operating system WeOS in Västerås. In this role you need to be fluent in Swedish, therefore the presentation below will be in Swedish.

Westermo är i en stark expationsfas och vi söker nu efter flera nya medarbetare till vår utvecklingsteam. Vi söker dig som gillar programmera i C och är intresserad av inbyggda system och nätverksprodukter.

På Westermo gör vi embedded-utveckling på riktigt. Med det menar vi att vi utvecklar mjukvara till vår egenutvecklade hårdvara Vi utvecklar ett nätverks-OS som är baserat på Linux som vi kallar WeOS. I WeOS integrerar vi en mängd Open Source-paket och en stor mängd mjukvara som vi utvecklar från scratch. För att kvalitétssäkra våra lösningar använder vi en riskbaserad teststrategi med ett avancerat automatiserat testramverk. Detta ger våra utvecklare feedback efter varje natt, helt automatiserat.

Det finns stort utrymme för egna initiativ och kreativitet. Utöver arbete med utveckling av WeOS räknar vi med att du också vill bidra med förbättringar av vårt arbetssätt. Om du, precis som resten av teamen, gillar att ta fram nya lösningar, lösa problem och vidareutveckla för framtiden så har Westermo en plats för dig att växa i. Vi jobbar agilt i mindre team och försöker ta fram det som är viktigast först, med rätt kvalité.

I vårt nya centrala toppmoderna R&D-kontor i Västerås som ligger ca 10 min gångväg från centralstationen finns alla möjligheter att trivas tillsammans med skickliga kollegor. Vår flexibilitet i hur vi arbetar för att nå framgång speglas även i våra arbetstider. Vi har t ex mötesfria onsdagar, där många utvecklare passar på att jobba hemifrån.

Vi har också en dag i veckan där utvecklare har möjlighet att jobba inom sitt ämnesområde oavsett om det innebär att labba, utveckla kod eller sig själv inom området. Det finns även närhet till gym tvärs över gatan från vårt kontor där en del tränar på lunchen, medan andra kanske väljer att spela rundpingis på kontoret eller bara sitter ner och avnjuter en fantastisk god latte från våra nya moderna kaffemaskiner.

Personliga erfarenheter

Vi letar efter dig som är intresserad av mjukvaruutveckling generellt och som har kunskaper i utveckling på Linux. För att underlätta din utveckling är det fördelaktigt om du har ett intresse för nätverksprotokoll och Open Source.

Vi tror att du minst har en examen i mjukvaruutveckling på masternivå (Master of science in software engineering) och/eller 3 års yrkeserfarenhet av produkt- och mjukvaruutveckling.

Du har redan goda kunskaper i C samt har grundläggande kunskaper i shell-script och Python.

Petra

Software Test Manager

I’ve worked at Westermo since 2013. I wasn’t looking for a job when a saw that Westermo was looking for a Software test manager but I felt that I had to take the chance. The role turned out to be perfect for me, and to have the opportunity to work at a company that both focus on the development of new products and existing was to god to miss out on. Also, Westermo has a strong focus on automation of test and has a reputation for having one of the best test processes. Our test system gives feedback every morning to the developers on the programming they did yesterday. This feedback gives us the opportunity to find and solve problems early in the development process. This way of testing makes Westermo a more agile company and we are able to develop products faster than we could without it.

I love my job at Westermo and I look forward to every new week. I know that I have an impact on the success of the company and that my input is important.

 

Peter

Hardware Designer

Before I joined the Westermo team in 2012. I had heard a lot about the company and the quality of the products, and now that I work here that is something I am really proud of.

Westermo has state of art equipment and several top modern laboratories. One of the best things about Westermo is the closeness to the production; I can work on a new design and instantly get feedback from the factory. Another great thing about Westermo is that the company gives you the freedom to work from wherever you are. That gives me the opportunity to manage my family’s farm and work full-time at Westermo. Both the company and my colleagues are open to solutions and we all feel that we contribute to Westermos success. A day at Westermo is never the same and it doesn't feel like a chore to go to work; I get to spend my days at a fun and creative place with intelligent and innovative people.

 

 

Laura

Global Account Manager

When I first heard about Westermo I was working at another large technology company. We had previously worked with Westermo and I knew them to be a great company so I found myself immediately interested. I have degrees in electronics and in network manager systems and I had been looking for an opportunity to move towards this. I contacted Westermo and introduced myself which led to a meeting with their Sales Director and we hit it off straight away.

After a few months they called me to ask if I wanted to step into the newly created role as an account manager and it was a perfect fit for me! Today I work as a Global Account Manager and I can say that everything that I heard about Westermo is true. It is an innovative company that strives for quality in everything they do and the team spirit is unique.
