Freelancer - Software Engineer (Backend/Java)

Vienna Head Office

Full Time, Part Time (Vienna)

Diabetes is a pesky monster — and that’s putting it mildly. If you’re serious about helping us face it head on, come join us!

Most of our customers live with insulin-dependent diabetes. Everyday life with diabetes is often tedious and exhausting – and that’s exactly what motivates our work at mySugr. Always driven by our motto to “make diabetes suck less,” we develop award-winning apps, integrate medical devices into our products, and work with health insurance companies and industry partners to make life with diabetes a bit better. For a behind-the-scenes look, check out our Monster Culture blog and this little video to see what makes mySugr tick.

Developing mobile apps is great, but developing mobile apps with a purpose is even better! As a Software Engineer at mySugr, you’ll work on a product that helps people with the most precious thing they have — their health. In collaborative teams of developers, designers, product owners, and QA experts, you’ll experience best-in-class software development practices on a daily basis and contribute to software that meets the highest expectations — we do not put our users' lives at risk!

Here’s who we’re looking for:

We are looking for experienced, motivated Backend Software Engineers who will work closely with their Backend colleagues, as well as support our Product teams. You will contribute with your knowledge of Java, Spring, Hibernate, relational databases & REST within our agile and cross-functional teams. As a flexible and open-minded person with a passion for clean code you will be a perfect addition to our team. We are committed to quality, dedicating time to code reviews and quality days. If this resonates with you, we would love to welcome you to mySugr!

Essential skills for this mission:

  • You enjoy developing clean, stable, and performant backend code, serving our beautiful mobile applications
  • You love to work in an interdisciplinary team, together with designers, QA, and product owners
  • You are passionate about solid technical design, clean code, and future-proof architectures
  • You are familiar with Java 8 and frameworks like Spring, Hibernate, JAX-RS and Tomcat
  • Experience with SQL and relational databases like mySQL
  • You enjoy working in a Test-Driven-Development-like style, so writing tests is your passion
  • You want to use new technologies and adopt them quickly 
  • Great written and verbal communication in English

Bonus skills:

  • Experience with Amazon Web Services or any other cloud provider
  • Experience with medical, security, and privacy regulations
  • Knowledge of the diabetes industry or other comparable health industries
  • Experience working in startup environments

Here's what you can expect from us: 

  • Ambitious and passionate people building meaningful products 
  • An innovative agile working environment allowing for collaboration with really smart people and knowledge-sharing in cross-functional teams 
  • A growing organization with room for personal development
  • Not a corporate environment, but the leverage of a global market leader (Roche family)
  • Full integration in a team where everybody meets at eye level
  • Work autonomously and lead topics in our respectful but ambitious work environment
  • Flexible working hours with a minimum of 2 days per week on-site, the more the better!
  • Opportunity to enjoy German, English and Public Speaking classes
  • A kick-ass office with a rooftop terrace, fully stocked kitchen and amazing barista coffee machines in the middle of Vienna… oh, and did we mention the best team in the world!

You will learn about the wide range of technologies we employ, from native mobile development to infrastructure-as-code in our cloud environment, gaining a rich understanding of the specific requirements of medical software, be it security, medical risk management, safe and resilient programming, or certifications and audits. You will have direct contact with our users, learning about their daily struggles living with diabetes, as well as customers and partners, understanding the unique needs and mechanics of health care systems around the world. Additionally, you may explore other roles related to software development, such as Product Owner or Scrum Master within our interdisciplinary team structure.

Here at mySugr we are committed to providing a healthy, equal and inclusive working environment for our Monster Tamers to help them make diabetes suck less! We care about family friendly career paths, sustainability, a healthy lifestyle and the flexibility of a modern workplace. We maintain a culture of learning and sharing, as well as open and candid feedback. At every level, there are many opportunities to develop and grow at mySugr - both professionally and personally.

Interested? Great. We’d like to hear from you! Just click that “Apply Now” button and send us your CV in English or German… and anything else that you think might impress us.
