Verification Engineer

Product Development – Timrå

Permobil Group is owned by Investor AB and is the global leader in Advanced Rehab. We are present in more than 70 countries with 1 800 employees and have an annual turnover of 3 billion SEK. For 50 years Permobil have used technology and innovation to improve the daily lives of people with disabilities.

We believe that it is a basic human right for all people with disabilities to be as active, independent and healthy as possible, regardless of their age, ability or location. Because of what we believe, we must take our technology further, expand into new markets, and our products must reflect our reason for existing.

Permobil is on an exciting journey and we are expanding our Software & Electronics department to meet the demands for new IT-services for our customers and users worldwide. We are responsible for the product development of electronics and software for our complex rehab powered wheelchairs and online IT-services linked to the everyday life of the wheelchair user, clinicians and providers. We have developed an IoT-platform giving us the ability to easily develop services end-to-end from the wheelchair to the web, mobile applications and advanced analytics. We develop high quality software in the healthcare and medical device domain for the end user with cyber security and risk management built in from the start.

As an employer, we strive to create a stimulating and open atmosphere, which encourages respect, cooperation and diversity. Since the department is male dominated today we especially encourage female applicants and/or applicants that are wheelchair users. If you share our values and want to make the world better for our end users, we want you to join our highly skilled development team and start making a difference.

You will plan, design, develop and perform functional and non-functional testing of our IT-solutions on a system- and sub system level. You will also participate in our architecture- and system design throughout our products entire life cycle.

You will help develop tools and techniques to reduce development time, automate activities and increase quality for our solutions.

You are required to follow and help improve our internal processes, methods and guidelines for software development.

We believe that you have a university degree or similar experience in the field of software development and have a focus on testing. Experience from the industry gives you an advantage but your drive, motivation and how well you fit our team are equally important.

It is crucial that you can design and develop manual and automated test cases, tools and verify functionality of our system solutions. Both on a user level and on a technical interface level.

You can work both in teams and individually, you speak fluent and have good writing skills in English and Swedish.

The technical environment the systems are developed in consists of Node.js, Express, Mongoose, Passport and JavaScript. Most of the network communication takes place on top of UDP/TCP or HTTP and MQTT. We use GitLab, JIRA and Jenkins to support us in our development.

We are a small team and it is vital that you see your contribution to the entire process and take part in all aspects of software development from requirements capture to verification of web applications. You are self-motivated, goal oriented and have good collaboration skills.

We have an event January 11 in Sundsvall that you are welcome to join, to hear more about us and our ongoing journey within digitalization. Read here: Meet & Greet Permobil Software
