Welcome to the hero factory!

Are you happy with what you’re doing? Would you like to be doing something that really matters? Something that makes a difference to our society, our children and our future?

Welcome to IST. We change the way schools work and make sure everyone gets the chance to learn more.

About IST

We work with one of the most important things - to give everyone the opportunity to a good school. Our task is to provide those who work in or with school and pre-school the tools they need to do their job as well as possible. Working at IST is about trying to make society better, by contributing to better learning and better schools for all, in and outside Sweden. To make this possible we are looking for mission driven minds to help us create these tools for our customers.

About the job

So, we know that you probably already work in development today. You’re probably recognized as some kind of code guru at your current place, and your colleagues already know that you are not to be spoken to until you’ve had the chance to binge drink at least 4 cups of coffee. So why change job? Your colleagues are probably nice (most of them at least), and the company pay you decently, so you’re in no stress. But… we can offer you so much more.

Besides the awesome benefits that you’ll get to enjoy here (lunch every day, gym at the office, gaming room, flexible working hours, a really awesome health insurance and SO much more), we can offer something that your current employer can’t. The chance to make a real difference in society. A chance to develop and improve schools, to make sure the kids of today and tomorrow (your own perhaps?) gets the best possible start to their life. YOU can make the difference for teachers and school staff, so they can take care of our next generation, and make sure that we all Learn More. And all you have to do is join us, and continue doing what you do best: use your excellent coding skills.

You will join some of our development teams, consisting of a collection of coding wizards and QA pros. Your team will be supported by for example fantastic product owners, architects and other amazing colleagues. The role as Software Developer at IST gives you a great level of freedom and responsibility involvement to you and your team, making work technically challenging and fun for all!

Your profile

To be the right person for this job, you have experience from development projects of various size, you know your way around open source solutions and like us, you really believe in the agile methodologies and processes.

Besides having a Master or Bachelor of Science degree, we believe you have great communication skills and a true commitment to the company, not only contributing to the team and the people around you but to the organization as a whole. As a person you show great responsibility, tend to make things happen and you welcome change. We expect you to quickly adapt to new situations and enjoy being part of an agile, constantly changing environment.

We are backend heavy, system wise! But frontend is a crucial part of our offer. And if you consider yourself a fullstack developer, then that’s an advantage for you, cause 1+1=3, but we do hire on all three profiles.

The following skills and experience are required or meritorious and valuable.

Backend profile

  • Java, Spring, Hibernate, HTML, CSS, JavaScript
  • OSGi
  • Agile methodologies, Scrum, TDD
  • Tomcat, Oracle
  • Git, Stash, Jenkins

Frontend profile


  • Ability to think from a user perspective
  • JavaScript
  •  Node.js

Our sector is hotter than ever, and our offer to the market is on fire. So, when you reach the conclusion that you don’t want to spend the rest of your career writing code without any real meaning, get in contact with us and apply below. We’re waiting, but we do hire continuously, so you shouldn’t wait too long. If any questions please contact our Country HR Manager Mathilda Wirenstrand at mathilda.wirenstrand@ist.com
