At Biotage in Uppsala, Sweden we develop methods, technologies, and instruments for the medical technology sector. Our products are used for body fluids analysis as well as for drug research and production and are widely spread across various customers around the globe.

Who are we?

We are a ten-member strong team that develops control and analysis software for various life science instruments. Our strengths span across a wide range of skills and experiences and we work on multiple projects. We use an agile approach and welcome your input.

Our software solutions are designed to execute as an embedded system in a Linux environment inside the instruments. We are responsible for the entire implementation chain, from UX, via front-end, back-end, database interaction to the firmware. Early-stage and continuous verification is very important to us.

We utilize both Java and web technology to develop our front-end. Our back end is implemented in Java and our firmware in C. We also have some C# .NET products.

Our development environments run on Windows and we use Jira to manage our requirements and product care.

We would like you to have the following skills:

-          MSc in software/systems engineering (including programming) or similar level
-          Experience in software engineering
-          Java
-          Web technologies
