Software Developer - Postprocessing and Graphics

Are you as inspired as we are by the combination of multiphysics simulation and programming? Do you want to work in a team of driven and talented colleagues? Would you like to develop core functionality for products used worldwide by tens of thousands of engineers? If so, read on.

Your Role

In our Stockholm office, we develop the core functionality of our multiphysics product family, used worldwide in research and development (R&D) and computer-aided engineering (CAE). Our software enables users to solve complex science and engineering problems, thanks in part to our intuitive and flexible graphical user interface.

You will join the team responsible for postprocessing and graphics. We develop the 3D renderer used in all of COMSOL's products, and create tools for analyzing and visualizing the results of simulations. Working on the postprocessing module entails developing mathematical algorithms for processing the simulation data and communicating with different parts of the program (the renderer, the numerical analysis module, and the physics modules). Working on the renderer can entail working on projects such as adding support for new types of visualizations, improving performance, and improving interactivity. The balance between the two areas will depend on what new functionality is requested and your background and interests.

  • Work in a specific problem space, with the goal to gradually expand your knowledge within the many areas we're responsible for, with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow.
  • Take on an integral role in the full life-cycle of your code, from design to development, testing, maintenance and improvement.
  • Help solve real problems for engineers worldwide.
  • Most development is done in Java and C++.

Your Profile

You’re passionate about problem-solving and desire to go above and beyond in your work. You are flexible, value team work and understand the importance of putting the users center stage. You are not afraid to dig into existing code and make it your own. We are looking for both junior and senior developers with the following background:

  • MSc or equivalent degree in engineering or computer science.
  • Excellent skills in at least one of Java and C++, preferably both.
  • Knowledge of OpenGL or DirectX is a plus.
  • Experience from large software development projects is a plus.
  • Interest in technology, physics, or simulation is not a requirement, but helps in understanding our product and market.

Working at COMSOL

You will quickly play a key role within your development projects, where you will have many opportunities to suggest ideas and improvements. As the company is growing continuously, we strive toward making you an expert within your development area within a few years. Along the way, you will be supported by experienced colleagues in a collaborative working environment. In addition to an exciting career working on a sophisticated software product, we also offer a competitive salary, individual pension plans, sponsored gym membership and social get-togethers. We respect your leisure time and need for a work-life balance.

Our office is located in central Stockholm.
