We are looking for a Software Architect to strengthen and lead the software team within an interdisciplinary department of software, electronics, mechanical and test engineers. In this challenging position, you will have the opportunity to design the software architecture for a mechatronic component within a large laboratory automation system. The system is engineered with a 32-bit Microcontroller to provide outstanding reliability and user experience embedded in our customer's laboratories. The system is tested using both real and simulated hardware with a high degree of automation. The project is located in Rotkreuz, Switzerland with a partner development team in Japan.

  • Ensuring consequent and correct implementation of the SW architecture: Assessing software and system issues to find solutions to them as per requirements through technical leadership
  • Generating a set of acceptance test requirements, together with the designers, test engineers, and the user, which determine that all of the high-level software requirements have been met, especially for the computer-human-interface
  • Understanding the legacy architecture to ensure new developed architecture complies according to agreements
  • Ensure data and model consistency of system components to ensure seamless system integration

Your qualifications

  • University or University of Applied Science education in a software related field such as software engineering
