Software Lead (Middleware)

Hello future-maker! We at Amer Sports are building exciting digital solutions for all sports-lovers and right now we are looking for a Software Lead (also known as Squad Lead).

Your role is to lead a team of Software Engineers day-to-day work to create concrete value, from planning to consumer delivery. You’ll also bring clarity for the everyday work of the software development squad and enable others to have visibility for progress. In a way you're making sure the project/product development is going smoothly on the middleware software side.

The Middleware team works in the domain of middleware software components, ranging from connectivity and embedded service frameworks to mobile-side connectivity and data libraries. The software and components built by the team are used in our IoT devices such as Suunto watches and by mobile applications on Android and iOS.

We’re hoping you to be an agile practitioner and have experience in Software Engineering either from embedded or middleware software development. We hope you’ll provide the squad strong technical and developmental leadership that enables us to create sports products our users love.

Your role in a nutshell:

  • You take part in the decision making regarding technical design for middleware systems. It is essential you have an interest in modern analytics and have a background from hands-on development and architecture. It’s great if you master C++, object-oriented thinking, REST APIs and asynchronous programming.
  • Awesome if Android/iOS development is familiar to you, as a bonus.
  • In your daily work you’ll lead the software work from consumer value proposition to consumer value add in a form of software releases (e.g. Suunto Link).
  • Take part in the decision making regarding effort estimation, planning, prioritization and be a key contributor for architecture planning, owning backlog.
  • Be part of the Consumer Software leadership team and be a Squad representative in the leads’ daily cross-functional communication

What’s in it for you, you ask? Be the lead of cross functional software team with mission to make the adventures more rewarding - from healthy urbans to experience seeking athletes. Work with interesting tech and the most loveable connected sports equipment in the world by having fun and making a difference.

Do some or all of the above make your mind race with ideas? Let us know about you by Sunday, March 24, 2019. For more information, contact Amer Sports Recruitment Partner Bea Grandell,, +358 40 551 4454.
