At Nexus, we secure the new society that emerges in the ever-expanding world of digital transformation. By constantly challenging ourselves to go further and do better, we’re developing cutting-edge technology for high demanding global clients. Nexus’ Smart ID solutions and IoT platforms are revolutionizing how we perceive trusted identities. Do you want to be a part of our journey?
Nexus, a part of the French IN Groupe, is a European leader and innovative identity management company. We secure society by enabling trusted identities for people and things. With 300 employees, some would consider us a smaller company, but we have the privilege to protect the workforce and IoT solutions for world-class customers.
We are offering you a chance to be part of a product/service company, just when the tech is starting to take off. Even though PKI has been around for decades, only quite recently is the market really starting to understand the need for it. Trusted digital identities are becoming essential and the Smart ID Mobile team is responsible for a solution that offers mobile virtual smart cards; trusted digital identities hosted in a secure mobile app. These identities can be used for out-of-band authentication to digital resources (such as Office 365 or other apps), digital signing, email encryption and visual identification.
With mobile virtual smart cards, you get an intuitive and user-friendly two-factor authentication (2FA) method. They are also an economical choice, since most users already have a smartphone, which means you do not have to issue and manage hardware tokens, smart cards or smart card readers. This is just a part of what the Smart ID Mobile Team has under its wings.
Henrik Hjelm, our Development Director, is looking to strengthen the team with an experienced leader within DevOps oriented software development, to take on the very honorary task of leading the Smart ID Mobile team, responsible for important components in the Nexus product portfolio. This is a permanent position in Stockholm, open to all applicants.
About the team
You will join a team of enthusiastic engineers based in Stockholm. The team is part of the engineering department whose mission is to provide modern, user-friendly mobile applications with a focus on the security realm.
In the team, we help each other a lot, both to enable learning, but also to spread knowledge about Nexus specific topics. We try to enable time to read and learn new things so that we can have the ability to implement new solutions that support our platforms in the best way.
What would you be doing at Nexus
As Software engineer manager, you will manage a team of currently 5 people and will be the driver of mobile application development in Nexus. You will provide key skills and know-how in the areas of mobile application and backend development, cloud solutions, as well as development methodologies.
This is a multi-function role; your prime objective will be to be a great leader for a great team. This includes day-to-day stuff like stand-ups, supporting the team in making sure they have the right foundation to deliver during the sprints and with other tasks. You will be a problem solver within and outside your team.
As a manager at Nexus, you will be fully responsible for all people management tasks, this includes continuous dialog with the team members in 1on1´s and performance reviews. You will also do recruitment, coaching and coordination for the team. You will always have support from the organization, of course!
We want all our leaders to take part in the hands-on work as well. This part depends on who you are. We are a company in transformation, and you will be able to contribute to many different areas. This could be as a mobile application developer, agile coach, DevOps engineer or working with Change- and IT management. Your profile and passions will guide this part.
Who are you?
You can have acquired your greatness in many ways. The team you will be leading is developing mobile applications and SDKs for both iOS and Android, as well as mobile middleware and backend servers. For that reason, we want you to have a background in development, preferably with mobile applications. We also think you have relevant manager experience and that you enjoy being a leader with full personnel responsibility.
As stated above, we also want you to work hands-on as well as be a leader. Therefore, we want you to be comfortable and knowledgeable in areas other than management. You should have experience in mobile application development and maybe even with mobile middleware. Preferably in areas such as micro service architecture, Docker / K8S experience and the Cloud. If you also happen to have experience in security related development, DevSecOps or PKI, it’s a big plus, but not a dealbreaker.
The most important thing is who you are. To enjoy your stay at Nexus, we think you should be passionate about development as a craft. This will give you the persistence and the drive to always work toward best practices, take pride in the solution you and your team provide for our customers, and it will keep you curious and open-minded to new ways of working.
Nexus Group’s main language is English, and you will be able to do a great job with only fluency in English. But for your comfort, it will be good if you know some Swedish for the lunchroom.
