Looking for a variated job and work within the whole product development cycle? Check this out!

With growing business in Finland, not only are we looking to expand existing Electronic Warfare business, we are also establishing a Combat Systems and C4I Solutions business unit within Saab Technology Center in Tampere.

Your role

Your role will be an important building block in establishing new business and ensuring secure data exchange between sites. You will work closely with corresponding competences in Sweden and Australia, where a major part of the joint development takes place.

We are looking for an IT System Developer with Windows, Linux and Virtualization experience. Your task will be to develop, deploy and administrate the IT solutions for development of Saab sensor technology solutions and naval combat management system. Further, we are looking for you to upgrade the current software development to the next generation of secure development environment. Here you will act as a key player in design and realisation.

In this role, no day will look like the other. Beyond developing and maintaining the Tampere site, this role is a part of the Saab international IT task team. Meaning some weeks a year you will travel to assist other sites in IT related support, in Finland and internationally.

Areas this role will work with

  • Daily maintenance and continuous development of IT solutions in Tampere,
  • Provide IT support to Finnish and international sites,
  • Work with software and hardware vendors to resolve issues and faults, and
  • Establish and maintain effective working relationship with key areas within Group ICT, Saab Business and the end user community.

This role will challenge you with tasks in a whole bunch of different areas. In this, we say like Liverpool – You’ll never walk alone! Backing you up is a large support organisation and colleagues that are always the maximum distance of a phone call away. This is a great role for you who are looking to expand your skillset!

Practical challenges involve:

  • Linux and Windows environment and operating systems
  • Virtualization and containerization
  • Network and firewall configuration
  • Client HW, such as desktop, laptops and HW components and peripherals
  • Applications, such as Atlassian Suite, Artifactory, Jenkins, MS Office, Skype and Xenmobile
  • Citrix working environment

Your profile

As a person, you are truly a doer, willing to get hands-on solving any problems needed to help the software development teams move forward. You have a collaborative mind-set and you are a true team player that encourages an open, trustful and innovative climate. You share information in a clear and easy way, both verbally and in writing. And, perhaps most important, you are skilled in asking for help.

Required skills/experience:

  • Linux and Windows environment and operating systems
  • Experience with virtualisation and/or network configuration

  • Experience with Microsoft Active Directory environment
  • You like working both in teams and independently
  • Good communication skills in speaking and writing (Finnish and English)
  • Minimum of a bachelor’s degree within computer science, engineering physics or equivalent
