Your new responsibilities:

  • They have the Developer Experience (DX) in mind and always try to improve the efficiency of the development. 
  • When new infrastructure components or tools are introduced, you support and coach the other developers of the project. For example, if needed, you can advise them on how to build CI/CD pipelines or how to implement automated integration testing in the deployed environment.


Contribute your competencies:


  • University degree in computer science or comparable qualification
  • Practical experience in professional software development (e.g. dependency injection, mocking, automatic tests, CI/CD pipelines)
  • Good C# and .Net Core knowledge

  • Knowledge of agile software development (e.g. SCRUM)
  • Very good knowledge of English and good knowledge of German is required


That is our offer to you:


  • In our teams, which operate according to SCRUM, we work together and in short sprints - this creates dynamism and freedom for a lot of personal responsibility.
  • As a family-run company, we live a culture with the values of team spirit, closeness and trust, independence and foresight.
  • True to the motto "Make yourself grow!", we promote individual professional and personal development. 
  • As a basis, we offer excellent work equipment (ergonomic workstations, multiple monitors, air conditioning), a fully subsidized canteen and sufficient free parking at the site.
  • We create the appropriate framework conditions for you: Capital-forming benefits, company pension plan, Christmas and vacation bonus, childcare allowance, job bike.
