Coding with purpose
In the software environment at Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, we develop codes for advanced technological products and complex systems with extreme demands on performance and precision. Products that make a difference and help protect people and critical infrastructure.
What if you got the opportunity to work with software for the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) which is on Norway's new fighter aircraft, the F-35? A missile with a technology so advanced that it recognizes the target, avoids material or infrastructure it is not intended for, and which will destroy itself if it does not find the target.
Or the NASAMS air defence system; recognized for its reliability, accuracy and ease of use, and used by several nations around the world, including Norway, the United States and several NATO countries, to protect key areas and infrastructure from air threats.
“What I like best about my job is the varied working days. I get to meet many different people and professional environments, be in the lab and test how the system we have developed works, be in the production hall and physically see how the products work, look at the assembly of all components, travel to subcontractors to assist with integration of their products and to customers to check that the product works according to the requirement specifications.” -Trine, Software Architect Integrated Defence Systems.
“It's probably no surprise that we're a bunch of gamers and like to spend time in front of screens both on and off work.” – Håvard, Senior Software Architect Division Land Systems.
Technology and innovation
We are actively working to keep up with the rapidly changing technological trends through exciting projects dedicated to development and modernization. The goal is to halve delivery times and increase automation in our software development process. This means renewing the development platforms we have and replacing the traditional tools with more modern and efficient alternatives.
We are also committed to integrating new technologies, such as the latest generation of weapon station software, Mainline 5. In addition, we offer great opportunities for career progression, from junior roles to senior positions, and on to roles in architecture or management.
Although we are cautious about the use of artificial intelligence (AI), especially in operational products, we see the great potential AI has in many applications. We emphasize the responsible and safe use of AI to foster innovation and efficiency.
