Backend developers to IST Products

At IST Products, our developers contribute to changing schools and how we learn, every day. They create a positive impact on society through products and solutions that give more people the chance to learn more.

Now we are looking for skilled developers to join our teams in our HQ in Växjö.

About IST Products

Products is where our next generation of administration software for schools and childcare is developed. Our solutions help the students, parents, teachers and managers to spend more time on what’s important, through responsiveness and automation.

 We always strive for continuous improvement - of both our processes and products - and we dedicate much of our capacity to do so, each sprint. We encourage an innovative mind-set and distributed responsibilities to trigger commitment in each individual and team, enabling development of you as an individual as well as your profession.

About the job

If you ask us, there are many reasons to work at IST. There’s the free lunch in our own restaurant, the gym, our gaming room, flexible working hours, a fantastic health insurance…but what we’re really proud of is the fact that we are committed to making a difference in society. And it’s not just something we say, it’s one of the Board directives. It’s part of our Business Plan and something we measure and invest in. And now YOU can be part of making that difference to the students and teachers too, using your coding skills to change schools.

You will join one of our development teams, supported by functional and technical product owners and devops and with occasional collaboration with the service manager - all to provide our customers with outstanding service. Our architect steers our high level architectural direction and leaves a great level of freedom and responsibility to you and your team, making sure work is technically challenging but still with some outer boundaries.

Your profile

To be the right person for this job, you have a few years’ experience from development projects, you know your way around open source solutions and like us, you believe in the agile methodologies and processes.

You might have a Master or Bachelor of Science degree, and we believe you have great communication skills and a true commitment to the company, wanting to share your knowledge with not only the team but with the entire organization. As a person, you’re keen to take responsibility, you tend to make things happen and you welcome change.

Systemwise, we are backend heavy but frontend is a crucial part of our offer. If you consider yourself a full stack developer, then that’s great. Even though it’s your backend expertise we’re focusing on here, frontend knowledge is an advantage. The following skills and experience are required or valuable.
