What Awaits You

Our company is growing – also in the Software Development Team! Support us in our vision of “Digital Sovereignty for the World” and help us develop our products UCS and UCS@school.
Work with a team that supports each other at all times and is enthusiastic about open source. Due to our diverse and extensive products, new exciting challenges are constantly awaiting you.

Our Daily Business

  • Together with 3-7 other developers, you will further develop the products UCS and UCS@school. Each person has a broad knowledge of the product and at least one topic they have worked on intensively and have become an expert in over time.
  • For example, you integrate apps from other manufacturers, write or extend a connector (e. g. to Office 365), or take care of bug fixing. That gives you a good overview of what UCS can do, especially at the beginning.
  • Nothing suitable yet? Then maybe UEFI/Secure Boot in the Linux kernel is something for you or hybrid authentication with Kerberos and OpenID Connect?
  • We have high-quality standards for our products. The continuous development of automated tests helps us achieve this and will also be part of your tasks. We use Jenkins, Pytest, and Selenium, among others, for this.

Project work
We always work on smaller or larger projects, e. g. the digital workplace for the public sector or the Sovereign Cloud Stack.
