It all started when a team of dedicated researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology investigated how modularity was being used to increase efficiency and productivity. This research led to Modular Management being founded in 1996, since when international companies such as Whirlpool, Volvo, Alfa Laval, Ericsson and ABB have applied unique methods and tools to improve their speed, flexibility and product offering. The results have been quite dramatic.
We’re experiencing significant demand for modular product architectures that connect mechanics, mechatronics and software, and are therefore looking to strengthen our team with a software architect.
Experts in modularity
Supportive and open culture
To succeed in this role, we believe you:
As software architect you’ll work in a project team together with colleagues and client representatives, including their own architects, in order to structure and design software. Areas include robotics, telecom, planning and infrastructure and you’ll both work with software modularization and take part in method development. Your task is not to code, but to coach clients. You’ll be responsible for the design and visualization of new client systems, at the same time as you coach them to improve.
You’ll primarily work in one project at a time, with projects ranging from a few months to several years. You’ll be based in Stockholm, with approximately two travel days every fortnight, and when you’re not with clients you’ll be flexible to manage your own time.
You probably have a few years’ experience of software architecture, having worked as a developer or an architect. You understand how software integrates with hardware and probably have experience of a company that provides both. Alternatively, you’ve already worked in a consultancy that supports clients with software architecture. You find it easy to communicate, like to cooperate and appreciate the helicopter perspective. You prefer to work in teams and enjoy a structured approach.
You’ll be part of a strong team working on big and interesting projects together with colleagues and clients. You’ll be flexible in how you manage your time and with us you’re not a resource consultant, but part of a supportive team. At Modular Management you’ll also get in-depth consultant training in the methods and tools needed to best support clients.
