Software developer (m/f/d) in full-time (40 h/week)

We are looking to fill as soon as possible a position as

Software developer (m/f/d) in full-time (40 h/week)

Part-time options are negotiable. The position is initially limited until 30 June 2023. We strive for a long-term cooperation after that.

Would you like to develop modern software solutions for hearing care professionals in line with our mission statement "We help people hear better" and work creatively on challenging projects? At HörTech, we lead numerous national and international projects for the research and development of (software) solutions in the field of Hearing Healthcare. The goal of this project is a platform-independent software solution that makes our newly developed hearing aid fitting method "trueLOUDNESS" available worldwide. The software is aimed at hearing care professionals and will be marketed as a class IIa medical device. 

You like to translate complex issues into structured, clear software. You are interested in scientific content and you are curious about how we can help people with hearing aids together. You will make constructive suggestions for finding solutions and for the design of the software and implement them in direct exchange with users and the project manager. You always have a view to the project as a whole and you can think outside the box to find solutions. Within the project, you work closely with our scientists, software developers and hearing care professionals and you can communicate with them as well as with our customers at eye level.

Your tasks:

  • As part of the team, you are primarily responsible for the development of the software. This includes, among other things:
    - Design of the software architecture with (among others) user interface, diagnostic and fitting modules
    - Implementation of back-end in C/C++ (with access to existing C++ codebase)
    - Implementation of front-end/UI in a common cross-platform framework (e.g. Angular, VUE, React/ReactNative)
    - Development of interfaces to existing software products
    - Development according to medical device guidelines (unit tests, code review, etc.)
    - Documentation of the software for developers and for customers
  • You maintain the software engineering environment (ticket system, versioning, task board, bugtracking, continuous integration, ...).
  • You use existing MATLAB-based tools and programs and develop them further.
  • You continuously coordinate with our other ongoing research projects in this research area as well as with other (software) projects in the company.
  • You develop the software with a strong view to the workflow of hearing care professionals.

Your profile:

  • You have a master‘s or higher academical degree in a technical subject. The subject area of the degree is not so decisive, a solution-oriented approach to software development is more important to us.
  • Ideally, you have several years of experience in the development and delivery of software medical products on the European market according to MDD/MDR.
  • You have a broad expertise in software development and experience with, for example:
    - modern C++, possibly other languages, experience with MATLAB or Octave is desirable
    - Unit tests, version management and build automation
    - Development of Windows software, ideally also experience with the Embarcadero 
    - C++ Builder
  • - Cross-platform development
    - Licensing solutions and software protection
    - Ideally also experience in agile software development
  • You are willing to adapt and improve existing code structures.
  • You have very good language skills in German and English to be able to communicate both in the international team and with the (initially Germany based) client group.
  • Knowledge in the field of audio signal processing, audio technology, psychoacoustics, hearing research may be an advantage.

How we work an what we offer:

  • Interesting projects in a company that wants to improve the lives of people with hearing loss.
  • 30 days of holiday per year; Salary is comparable to university contracts (TV-L). Depending on qualifications, a grouping up to E13 is possible.
  • Flexible organisation of working hours and use of home office (at the moment we are in the home office for a longer period of time due to Corona)
  • Space for informal exchange, also in corona times, e.g. through digital coffee breaks
  • Freedom to design your own workflow
  • Numerous opportunities to contribute and implement your own ideas, for example helping to shape current and future projects.
  • Support for personal development (further training, individual staff development meetings)
  • Optional Hansefit membership
