Driven Software Architect

Do you want to join us in challenging the life and pension sector?

Be part of a rapidly growing, ambitious company driven by making the best solutions while having a lot of fun. 

We have a flat and informal organization, giving you lots of individual responsibility and freedom. You will have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented professionals in the industry and you can expect your knowledge and expertise to be challenged. At Festina Finance we challenge the “business as usual” status quo, and we will also expect you to challenge us in return.

We are building the future

Join us to guide and shape the software architecture and the processes of our solutions that are revolutionizing the Life and Pension industry. We target providers throughout Europe, with our current focus on Denmark and the Netherlands.

As part of developing solutions at the cutting edge of the pension and banking industries, you will be part of an experienced team of senior architects that help develop frameworks, interact with customer architects and other stakeholders, ensure that we meet customer expectations and drive them towards our new standard for the Life and Pension industry. You will do all this while helping to keep the solutions modern and flexible. 

We value that architects regularly work in the solution code and contribute frameworks and APIs that help ensure developer efficiency and correctness. Another aspect of being a software architect at Festina Finance is to help guide and establish our development processes.

It is imperative to us that there is not a disconnect from the people working on the architecture, frameworks, and APIs, and the people developing our solutions. Therefore, a good portion of your daily work will be spent writing code in the solution to implement our architectural goals.

Do you have architectural experience for scaling and maintainability?

We are looking for a new team member for the software architecture/framework team with prior experience in working on large scale systems with high stability requirements and knowledge of decentralized cloud development. As a member of the team, you will get to do development, design new frameworks, help align architecture decisions internally as well as with customers, and guide and implement development processes with the rest of the team.

Some sample work assignments:

  • Implement and optimize new database backends
  • Add extensions to our domain specific configuration language
  • Work with customers on implementing our solution efficiently
  • Influence and roll out changes to development processes
  • Help developers be efficient in developing in the solution

Do you enjoy working in a team?

We have several exceptionally strong and sharp-minded independent development teams! In Festina Finance everyone has their voice heard and their contributions recognized as we create something very special as a team – and it is possible to work both creatively and efficiently. This provides an exciting and dynamic working life for everyone, where we celebrate results giving room for both having fun and developing professional skills. We work in several teams, both on our general solution and on our customer projects. The place of work will mainly be at our head office in Værløse, but there is also opportunity to work with our customers elsewhere in Denmark and in the Netherlands. 

Do you have what it takes to be a part of Festina Finance?

There are many exciting and challenging assignments and we also have high expectations of you.

Must have skills include:

  • A mind-set for understanding complex requirements and finding simple solutions
  • Prior experience in working with the implementation of scalable and maintainable architecture
  • Good understanding of software architecture
  • Relevant education – As a computer scientist or software engineer, or something else. Just be ready to convince us you have the knowledge, the experience, and the drive.
  • Willingness to work in a team; our joint success is what counts.
  • Preferably previous knowledge of the pension or banking industry, but it not a requisite
