    Solution Engineer for Defence
    Systematic is an international software supplier and systems integrator of mission critical systems with core competences within complex management information systems, integration of different IT-systems, structured data exchange, and project management.

    Our main domains lie within the realms of Defence, Intelligence and National Security, Healthcare, Public Sector, Library & Learning. Our solutions provide a framework that assists our customers to make correct decisions. We provide simple solutions to complex problems in order to help to simplify the critical decision making process. Our headquarter is located in Aarhus, Denmark and we have offices in Copenhagen, Australia, Finland, France, Germany, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, UAE, UK, US, and Romania. The company employs approximately 1000 people.


    Systematic's international defence business is growing. To accommodate this, we need several new colleagues to further develop our standard software SitaWare and IRIS, as well as to carry out all aspects of rollout for the customer.

    The job
    You will be responsible for helping a segment of our customers implementing our standard software solutions in their technical infrastructure and work processes, so that the overall solution creates optimum value. During certain periods, you will join our software development team, which constantly maintains and refines our standard software based on feedback from our customers. The work is organised in cross-functional teams of system engineers, solution engineers, architects, testers and project managers, who collaboratively plan and organise the implementation of our systems in the customer's organisation. The scope of tasks ranges from one-off assistance for a single element of the implementation process to full responsibility for a rollout.

    Extremely highly skilled colleagues helping and challenging each other
    We see failures as opportunities to learn and we ensure they are recognized before they have effects on our customers.
    The opportunity to see, learn and implement things that are only possible in a very few workplaces
    We are not just holding our current positions; we are creating something bigger on a daily basis and feel satisfied with our input to progress.
