About Modelon

Modelon is building a system modelling and simulation platform of the future, with the goal of creating a robust commercial platform available in the cloud. The solution calls for highly interactive user interface for system modelling, massively parallelized simulations, fast querying and post processing of large data sets, and visualization in 2D and 3D. Collaborative workflows preferred by modern engineers is a key capability of the platform.  The platform also needs to adhere to high standards for IT security to keep sensitive customer product data safe and for scalability to support a large user base. In addition, flexible deployment to work with different cloud architectures as well as a robust and performant solution are important characteristics.

Role description 

As a full-stack developer, you will develop, maintain, and operate software products and toolchains to support the organization and enabling fast development and integration of software products that are deployed both on-prem and in cloud environments.

This position is based in Lund or Gothenburg, Sweden. It is announced within the Application, Integration and Deployment (AID) team at Modelon. This team has a wide range of responsibilities. You will contribute both to module development primarily in C/C++ and Python; integration builds using Docker; deployment to Kubernetes clusters on-cloud and on-prem and necessary CI/CD pipelines currently driven by Jenkins. We are transitioning to SaaS architecture; therefore, new technologies will need to be introduced and learned on the way and so the toolset will likely change over the years. You will normally have one focused tool development activity alongside operational and support responsibility for a part of the deployed toolchain.
