Your role

As a team member in one of our teams, you will be working with new system design on different levels of aircraft simulation. Beyond that, you will work with supporting current systems that are in operation. There will be a lot of problem solving, learning and investigating together to reach the goal to make the Gripen system efficient and successful. You and your teammates will share the success and together feel proud of what you have accomplished. All of the Gripen avionics software is tested in simulators before it continues to the actual aircraft. This means that you over time will acquire significant knowledge about the Gripen aircraft and its avionics system, even though the pool of knowledge never will stop feeding your curiosity.

Your profile

We work in a Unix/Linux based development environment and use C, C++, Qt, Python, Bash, Git, Google test and CMake. Naturally, there is a big advantage that you have knowledge of these or other script languages and tools. However, if you do not know for example Qt, that is not a problem.

Your personal characteristics and drive are very important to us and may outweigh pre-existing knowledge and experience.

The way forward in different types of simulators, such as development simulators and training simulators, is continuously under development, therefore we see that you need to adapt to new ideas and solutions and be a part of creating them.

What you will be a part of

Saab is a global defence and security company active within air, land and sea defence, civil safety and commercial aviation technology. Saab currently has 14 700 co-workers active in all continents and is a technology leader within many areas, with one fifth of income being reinvested in research and development.

Aeronautics is a business area within Saab. We offer aircraft related subsystems, drones, aircraft substructures, and service to defence customers as well as civil aviation across the world. Aeronautics is also responsible for the development, production, marketing, sales, and support of the Gripen System.

The department Simulators, Training and Support is part of Saab Aeronautics’ research and development organization. We develop simulators, rigs, and support systems for all product development phases (concept, marketing, development and validation). The department also develops its own products: training simulators for pilots and technicians. Within the department, we have all the engineering knowledge required to design, develop, produce and deliver products, and to provide training for the products and systems.

As this position includes work with classified defence information, it is required that you will be approved in a security screening in accordance with the Swedish Protective Security Act.

You are welcome to send us your application in either Swedish or English.

If you aspire to help create and innovate whilst developing yourself in a challenging team setting, Saab may well have the perfect conditions for you to grow. We pride ourselves on a nurturing environment, where everyone is different yet we share the same goal – to help protect people.
