Factory software is at the core of value creation, it is crucial to our society. Creating factory software is exceedingly difficult. Actyx is solving this problem. Our platform ActyxOS—based on a peer-to-peer architecture with no central nor on-site servers—allows developers to easily build and run powerful data-driven applications. This helps factories answer questions, reduce waste, and increase performance. Over the last 2.5 years Actyx has grown to a team of 25 absolutely outstanding people, raised over 4 million EUR and was installed in multiple factories.
Our co-founder and CTO Roland is looking for an experienced software engineer to join the 8-strong Pan-European distributed development team.
You will add your own talents and experience to the team: together we will push the envelope and move the boundary of what is considered possible in the space of highly resilient distributed business logic on the factory shop-floor.
You will refine and create distributed business logic based on event-sourcing and functional programming techniques
You will compose and wire up UI components to implement simple and intuitive user interfaces that facilitate complex interactions of man, machine, and material on the shop-floor
You will create, operate, and maintain infrastructure for monitoring and servicing decentralized peer-to-peer apps deployed in demanding factory environments on tablets, machine gateways, and virtual machines in the cloud and on-premises
You will create, customize, operate, and maintain integrations to third-party enterprise software as well as sensors and machines on the factory shop-floor
We seek an outstanding candidate, who is highly driven, smart, confident, and gritty. Our perfect match is hungry to learn and enjoys working in fast-paced environments.
You have a track record of at least 10 years as a programmer, possibly with some open-source contributions to show; you consider languages, frameworks, and libraries as tools rather than religion
You have created or contributed to distributed programming tools; you have a deep understanding of functional programming as well as the costs and benefits of strong static type checking and powerful type systems
You love challenges and you have a roll-up-your-sleeves and get-stuff-done attitude
You have excellent analytical skills, work diligently, have great attention to detail and are able to consistently deliver results under pressure
You are fluent in business-level English.
Last but not least, when judging your fit for this position we will not consider your age, sex, gender, ethnicity, religion, etc. as these are not relevant to your role within the team.
A unique opportunity to revolutionize the manufacturing industry, displace old-school software and have a tangible impact on the Actyx success story
A highly relevant technical challenge paired with stimulating use-cases from the tangible real world
A world-class multicultural team: we don’t just work together, we truly care about each other and seek to bring out the best in each other every day
If you need more private time to take care of your loved ones then we will try our best to accommodate their needs
A flexible and high pace work environment, with low hierarchies, competitive compensation and equity package
