The Most Desired Audio Brand
At Bang & Olufsen, we strive to be the most desired audio brand in the world. For more than 90 years we’ve developed products that change moods, inspire minds and instill pride in all of us. We are passionate innovators, using our deep knowledge and collaboration skills to solve and simplify complex challenges every day, each of us driven by the profound effect sound can have on the mind. We welcome others that share our passion.
Join us to push the limits of our testing software and contribute to new ways of testing in an agile environment where opinions, ideas, and knowledge have no boundaries.
As our new Software Developer, you will join our Software Test Team in Lyngby or Struer. Here, you will be responsible for designing and developing existing and new auto-test libraries and frameworks to provide test coverage on expansive projects, including audio and visual based devices built upon modern embedded software platforms. To accomplish this, you will communicate continuously with the software development teams and explore test needs and issues to create the right solutions. You will then communicate with fellow developers to ensure that the developed software fits the needs and remains continuously relevant and efficient.
Our products have received several awards and best in-class reviews in all categories. With us, your work will help push the boundaries of today’s audio technology and reinforce our position at the forefront of innovation.
As a part of our Software Test Team, you can look forward to becoming an active member of our agile software development setup with sprints and daily stand-ups. In our Scrum Teams, we encourage team members to learn through experiences, self-organize while working on a problem, and reflect on their wins and losses to continuously improve. As a Test Developer, you will have an opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology and modern tools to tackle challenging problems, build robust test solutions and ensure paramount quality standards. You will work with experienced software developers who are passionate about technology and eager to share their ideas and knowledge with you.
Here at Bang & Olufsen, we have a very innovative and informal start-up culture based on the values; honesty, keep-it-simple, and quality-is-better-than-quantity. You will have plenty of opportunities to collaborate across teams and functions and experiment with new ideas and solutions to influence our future test processes. We want someone who is excited about tackling the hard problems in technology. We are therefore investing significantly in talented people who are curious and collaborative visionaries.
