At Saab, we constantly look ahead and push boundaries for what is considered technically possible. We collaborate with colleagues around the world who all share our challenge – to make the world a safer place.
What you will be a part of
Surveillance provides efficient solutions for safety and security, for surveillance and decision support, and for threat detection and protection. The portfolio covers airborne, ground-based and naval radar, electronic warfare, combat systems and C4I solutions, and traffic management systems.
The Runtime platform group within Signal and data processing is now looking for experienced developers to join our team of engineers who share a common interest in developing world class ground-based and naval radar systems.
As a runtime platform developer you will play a central part in integrating hardware and software and everything in between into our complex systems that give users enough time to react and act!
Our product range is a complex and challenging mix of cutting-edge applications never used in this type of systems before and applications proven in battle for many years. We develop our own applications in-house and we use what’s developed by others and already out there, usually with some tweaks and adaptations. Making them work together is what makes this job so interesting. You get the opportunity to follow our products through the entire development cycle, from the early stages where customer needs are captured and the system architecture is defined, right through to the deployment of the systems in their real environment.
Your everyday workplace will range from a desk at our awesome office in Kallebäck at the top of Gothenburg, to system development and integration labs, to radar shelters where our systems are finally deployed and used. You constantly interact with teams and products from all disciplines within the company, because it is in the runtime platforms where it all comes together!
To be competitive we must stay at the edge and we work hard to improve our skills and methods. Our ways-of-working and interacting with each other is defined by our common values, “Courage, Curiosity, Togetherness, Transparency, Passion and Respect”.
In our job we are constantly involved in the details as well as the whole. The bits and bytes, cables, nuts and bolts that are finally configured and put together into a system that must be easy to use and at the same time impossible for an enemy to break into. Because people’s security depend on it being just that!
Now that’s a challenge you will not find in many companies around the world and Saab is one of them!
