Senior software engineer – Cloud development

Dirac Research, one of Sweden’s emerging tech powerhouses, is a world-renowned audio technology company that is dedicated to inventing the future of sound across all product categories. The company’s market-leading digital audio optimization solutions have been adopted by some of the world’s most respected manufacturers – including Harman, Huawei, OPPO, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Pioneer, Volvo, Rolls Royce, and many others. Dirac is headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden, with offices in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Beijing as well as representatives in Japan, USA, Korea and Germany. Additionally, Dirac now operates an R&D center in Copenhagen, Denmark. Undergoing an intense growth phase, the Dirac team consists of more than 90 people – with additional expansion on the immediate horizon.

Audio performance is becoming increasingly prominent in consumer devices, and increasingly defined by software rather than hardware. Dirac´s mission is to be the world’s leading provider of complete digital audio optimization solutions and become a global consumer brand and a quality seal for sound systems of every kind. At Dirac you will be working with state-of-the art audio technologies in a dynamic and international environment.

We are looking for a senior software engineer to join our Cloud Services team in the Product Development organization.

The team is dedicated to developing and maintaining all of our based backend systems that provide end users with audio filter calculation functionality, provide data collection support and backend services for internal tools. Some of these services require scalability to serve millions of simultaneous users while others are for a very limited set of internal users.  

The position is located in Uppsala. As a senior part of this currently forming team, you will play a key role in establishing our technology and infrastructure choices to enable Dirac’s current and future audio solutions.  The Cloud Services team is central in our efforts to, in a scalable way, seize opportunities in the ongoing rapid growth of advanced, premium and pervasive audio solutions. Most team members in the Product Development organization are today located in Uppsala, but we have team members in both Copenhagen, Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen as well. The organization is characterized by a very high level of professional competences and experience, mutual respect, and an open and innovative work environment.
