We are looking at the earliest possible date for a full-time and unlimited software developer (all gender) for scientific applications, as a reinforcement in one of our agile development teams within KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA in Einbeck, Lower Saxony. After an onboarding phase, we can also coordinate on remote work within Germany. 


In full-stack development, you have the task of implementing and further developing new tools around our established laboratory information system. These are applications that are required by the employees in the laboratory as part of the digitization of our laboratory processes and are used, for example, for quality assurance in the various work steps.


What you can expect with us:
Together with a small, well-rehearsed team of product owners for our laboratory information system, you will take over the further and new development of software applications that are connected to the laboratory information system and this to expand KWS-specific requirements. Furthermore, you integrate various hardware systems, from scales and printers to PH meters and KWS' own hardware consisting of mobile data acquisition devices and Windows tablets. By applying modern DevOps techniques and with the support of our DevOps experts in the other project teams, you ensure smooth and efficient operation of the software.  


What you score with:

  • Practical experience in professional software development (e.g. SOLID principles, dependency injection, mocking, CI/CD pipelines)
  • Very good knowledge of C# and ASP.NET (core)
  • Good knowledge of web technologies (CSS, HTML5, JavaScript)
  • Safe handling of GIT, Windows, Linux and relational databases (Oracle, PostgreSQL)


What you can (but don't have to) bring in as a plus:

  • Good knowledge of Azure DevOps, Jira or GitLab
  • Knowledge of .NET Blazor and Docker
  • Experience with agile software development (e.B. SCRUM)


Advantages of working at KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA:

  • As a family-run company we are guided by the values of closeness, reliability, foresight and independence - this culture is lived in practice creating thus an open and friendly working atmosphere.
  • We offer excellent work equipment (e.g. ergonomic workstations, several monitors, air conditioning), a fully-fledged, subsidized canteen and the possibility to work remotely in Germany after the onboarding. 
  • We create the appropriate framework conditions for you: a company pension scheme, capital formation benefits, Christmas and holiday bonuses, special prices for company shares, childcare allowance and a job bike. 
  • True to our motto Make yourself grow, we support employees’ professional and personal development.
  • Health & Safety are very important for us: our company doctor, company fire brigade / paramedics (with time credit) and company sports create a solid base for this.


Develop yourself and not just the software! We look forward to receiving your application online.
