Äventyret seeks Tech Lead with Open Source heart

Do you want to work with the latest digital technologies in a close-knit team at an outstanding workplace? Are you a master developer who likes taking a lot of responsibility, both internally and in collaboration with clients? Do you prefer to practice your craft in an Open Source framework?  

Are you the kind of person that others are quick to trust? Do you like both coding and doing presentations? Then you should apply for the role as Tech Lead at Äventyret.

Äventyret seeks a back-end developer who likes working in a group with other chatty, creative and nice colleagues, and who has what it takes to be our new Tech Lead. The role would suit someone who wants to split their time between coding, leading technical architecture work and developing the business.

Äventyret is a service design studio with a prototype-based approach to the production of digital solutions, such as apps, connected devices, e-commerce, streaming services, productivity tools and sites for clients in most industry sectors.  Äventyret is currently a 14-strong team. The Tech Lead role is new (although the tasks are currently shared by others at the company) and you will therefore also be involved in designing and introducing processes and work procedures for the role. You will be working in a project-based manner, in a fast-paced environment with varied work tasks.


Work tasks

As Tech Lead at Äventyret, you will be working as a developer, technical project manager and architect, depending somewhat on the project. Along with your team, you will be creating world-class digital service design.  The role will suit someone with experience of back-end development, Open Source frameworks and diverse publishing systems. You are creative in your domain: for example, you can easily find the answer to which framework is best suited to a project, how we choose headless or coupled CMS, and how we can get new, smart solutions to talk to the 9-year old business system of a client. You are passionate about working with the Internet of Things and have probably experimented with Arduino or Raspberry Pi. You are not a designer, but understand and appreciate the innovative interface design that your new colleagues have a burning desire to produce. You are up with what’s new in your area and have your own views on how to do what is to be done.


We are looking for someone who

Has perhaps become stuck at your current workplace? Or you are a somewhat untested talent with serious skills and development potential?

We are looking for someone with back-end development experience, with skills and an interest in working with Open Source. We would like to see that you:

  • Are really into coding and constantly improving at it
  • Have experience with PHP, Python, Node.js and/or Ruby
  • Are in the know when it comes to Laravel, Django and/or Ruby on Rails
  • Know from experience what is good and bad with Episerver, WordPress, Drupal and other CMS
  • Are good at SQL
  • Are confident in domain management, cloud hosting and security solutions
  • Find what you are looking for when you Google it
  • Speak Swedish or at least speak good English

It is an advantage if you understand HTML and CSS, and know why JavaScript should be in the interface, because then you will understand the code that your new colleagues give you.

As a person, you are organized and structured to an extent that means you read email regularly, can schedule your time in a calendar and will answer the phone when it rings. You are self-aware and realistic and will therefore request more time at the start to solve difficult problems. You have a proactive approach and are happy to take the initiative to find solutions. You like working in a team, but also have the ability to work independently. You are happy to find new ways to resolve issues that you have not encountered before.

Äventyret was founded in February 2014. We offer market salaries, compensation for overtime and excellent pension plans.

Do you excel at things other than what we've listed above?

We will continue to grow.  You are welcome to follow us on LinkedIn so you don’t miss anything. You can also send in a prospective application.
