Software Architect

Software Architect

Who you are:

You want to build an awesome product/service and have an influence on its architecture and outline. You love working with fantastic, dedicated people that like what they're doing.

Programming is your lifestyle, inventing is your favorite hobby. You have curiosity and enthusiasm and you take on projects with confidence. You enjoy getting knee-deep in complicated aspects like code abstraction and backend architecture. Clean structured coding is your trademark and you’d like to see everybody coding in Object Oriented languages.

Are you passionate about technology, like to develop software and want to help our clients to grow and innovate using the latest technology? You can apply your software engineering skills to different types of problems, on platforms using a multitude of programming languages. You have a constant drive to grow fast and improve yourself and your team.


Here are some of the skills you have listed on your CV

Communication: You have the ability to speak with all types of stakeholders - Business Developers, CEOs, Operation Managers and Software Engineers. You feel comfortable in high pressure situations where you must convey your analytical thinking into terms everyone can understand. You are a natural influencer and are open to lively discussions around software development and delivery.

Broad and deep technical knowledge: You are a strong full stack developer at heart. Maybe you feel that it is easier to do things yourself, but you understand the value in technical documentation, reports and diagrams and deliver these as well.

Leadership and delegation: While you may not people manage a team, you can work across the organization in leading Symbio’s overall technical path as well as rely on key players within to assist you in key projects and deliverables.

Analytic: Your ability to take abstract problems and transform them into real world solutions will be critical at times, especially when working with the architecture that developers are already evaluating, designing and developing.

Language skills: Excellent verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English.


What you’ll do

  • Work with customers to identify and translate customer needs into concrete technical requirements.
  • Identifying the stakeholders on the project.
  • Identify business requirements and requirements of the stakeholders on the project.
  • Design the entire system based on the received requirements.
  • Choose the system architecture and each individual component of this system at a high level.
  • Architectural review.
  • Code-review.
  • Write project documentation and its support.
  • Create unified development standards in the company.
  • Control the architecture during the next iteration of the system release.


Still curious, now imagine yourself here....

At Symbio we believe in the Swedish model - a work/life balance we are fiercely protective of. We are a close knit group of people from all around the world. We value curiosity, honesty, openness and friendliness. There is little hierarchy and everyone is encouraged to participate in all areas of the company. We focus on each other's strengths and help those around us when in need. 

Do you like wheat beer? Do you believe coffee can never be too strong? Have a breakfast speciality you wish to try out on your co-workers? Then Symbio might be the place for you.

Why Symbio?

Because Symbio is a People Product and hiring the right person is our #1 priority 100% of the time. We work with some pretty cool companies (some you know, some you will know) which is why being talented and driven is critical too. From our point of view, the recruitment process is ground zero. 

The Recruitment Process

For this role you can expect:

  • Within 48 hours we will review your application and let you know if you will move on to the first interview or not. This interview is conducted by our Talent Manager and Recruiter and is approximately 30-60 minutes. Nothing tech - just about the role, company and you, high level stuff here.
  • If you successfully complete the interview, you will be contacted by the Talent Manager again and you will move on to the second interview where you will meet a Software Architect and a Project Manager. This is a little more micro - you should expect questions about your solutions, projects, ways of working, etc.
  • Once you WOW the Software Architect and Project Manager, you will move on to the Final Interview! You will meet with the company CEO where you will be presented a business case that you will solve and present your best solution. After that you will have a debrief with the Talent Manager. You can expect to be here for 1-2 hours. 

Use the time in all interviews to get to know us and see if Symbio Sweden is where you are interested in spending upcoming future in.

This entire process - from first contact to final interview - takes approximately 2-3 weeks. We like to move as fast as possible but synching so many schedules can take time. We promise, however, to keep you updated as often as possible and from the beginning you will have direct access to our Talent Manager.

Perks & Benefits

In addition to working on pretty cool projects, Symbio also offers you the opportunity to truly enjoy the Sweden’s beloved work/life balance.

If you want some real numbers take a look:

  • Generous pension contribution

  • Fitness contribution

  • Swedish in-house classes

  • Computer glasses reimbursement

  • Flexible and remote working hours

Besides these great perks, we also value quality time. When you are on vacation (or even sick) we leave you alone. While this sounds trivial, we truly believe that there is a separation from personal and professional realm and we work hard to keep that divide.

That being said - we are a big family. We appreciate that so many talented people have come to work with us - some moving themselves and their family from abroad. We are not only People First, but Family First - so we make sure to include everyone in our bi-yearly outings as a show of appreciation.
