R&D Developers – Configura

Nov 30

We are looking for a software developer to provide the opportunity to have an impact in shaping future space planning in important application areas such as Kitchen design, Material Handling and Office Furniture. Do you want to collaborate with, and learn from, highly experienced experts and build your career in a fast-growing and exciting field? Then Configura might be just the right fit for you.


Configura works with parametric configuration. We develop rules-based software to draw spaces in 2D and 3D for leading companies within the commercial furniture, kitchen and material handling industries. In the background, prices and configurations are automatically calculated. We are a global company with customers in 10 countries and users in more than 50. Configura is headquartered in Linköping (Sweden) with four wholly owned subsidiaries in Grand Rapids (Michigan, USA), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Shenzhen (China), Berlin (Germany) and a small office in Gothenburg (Sweden). Our unique expertise places us at the forefront of Space Planning and Configuration solutions. With more than 200 professionals we are now ready to take on unique challenges anywhere in the world.


We have an opening for a self-starter who is eager to develop and maintain software modules for our core application. Configura is full of new ideas and innovation; programming therefore has a significant role throughout the company. We work in teams where we seek individuals who take personal responsibility to achieve good team spirit, quality and deliver on time.

As an R&D developer, you will be working in close collaboration with teams from all our offices in Europe, Asia and USA. You will contribute towards improvements in user experience by efficiently develop both code and process. Your primary responsibilities will include implementing state-of-the-art techniques and developing software. Thanks to our unique CET Developer Platform, overhead time is kept to a minimum. You will receive immediate feedback on your changes and you will spend less time on waiting on compiling and more on fun.

If you want to work for a company with Swedish roots and genuine care for its employees, this position could be for you. We take pride in our low employee turnover and are especially proud of the prestigeless approach and strong work enthusiasm among our talented employees.


In order to fit into the role, we believe that you have the following:

  • B.S. in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics or equivalent experience
  • Strong skills in languages such as Java, C# and C++.
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Ability to quickly gather requirements, explore multiple approaches and suggest solutions
  • Experience in agile development processes and experience with structuring code for larger projects are beneficial but not required

To be successful as an R&D developer at Configura we believe that you are a self-starter with a genuine passion for programming with a good grasp of object-oriented concepts and experience in using them to build applications. You should also be a communicative and mature person who is driven to deliver with quality. You write robust, secure and maintainable code in a variety of languages. While you collaborate well, you also work independently, using creativity and innovation to think beyond the problem domains given.

As a member of the Configura family, you will be given the opportunity to grow and develop your skills in an innovative and high-tech environment surrounded by committed, talented and enthusiastic co-workers from all our offices.
