”Rethinking ADHD”

About the role

We are looking for a Director of Engineering that will join our team in central Stockholm. Your focus will be on leading the work of creating Qbtech’s new generation cloud platform, powering both new and existing products for objectively measuring ADHD symptoms as part of the diagnostic process.

You will lead a team of engineers through the full software delivery lifecycle (i.e. designing, developing, testing and documenting systems and services). You will also drive recruitment of new team members, adding expertise and capacity as needed. The team will grow in order to deliver the needed infrastructure & services to meet our product strategy.

You will work closely with product management, other director of engineers and the CTO, translating business requirements into technical stories that go into the agile development process. 

With your guidance, some of the things the team will focus on are:

  • Creating a service-oriented platform
  • Operational efficiency, security & scalability of services
  • Architectural discussions (e.g. build vs buy decisions, data warehousing design etc.)
  • R & D initiatives

About the techstack & team

The new Qbtech platform is built on top of AWS with services deployed as containers, using ECS (Fargate model). The JVM plays an important role as all new services are implemented using Kotlin (typically with Spring Boot and micronaut as development frameworks).

The cloud platform team is currently 6 people and growing. The full (wider) engineering team also includes frontend developers (mobile and web) and QA.

About you

We’re looking for someone with a holistic mindset, being able to drive both technical excellence as well as providing mentorship for team members. To succeed in the role you are a curious problem solver with a can-do mentality and you have a genuine interest in software development and the IT / tech industry as a whole. You have leadership experience from having previously led a software engineering team and you’re used to breaking down organizational goals into something that the team can understand and run with.

You should also have:

  • extensive experience with web services on AWS, which means that you’ve worked with technologies for making things work at scale (containers, CDN, event-driven architectures).
  • extensive knowledge with backend development, primarily Java and Spring framework (incl. Spring MVC / Webflux & Spring Boot).
  • strong knowledge on Internet security topics like identity and access management and firewalls / security groups, and also good overall knowledge about common network protocols (HTTP, TLS).

It is also great if you are familiar with:

  • At least one other high-level language like Kotlin or Go
  • Regulatory standards such as ISO 27001 (Information Security)

What can Qbtech offer you?

At Qbtech you will have the opportunity to work with something meaningful that helps people understand ADHD while transforming healthcare. You will work in an international environment together with some of the leading experts in the world. You will lead the development of best in class as well as first in class products and services – globally.
