Java/JavaScript developer - Copenhagen

Want to be part of the company that puts "funk" in functionality ?

The stories on how James Brown (you know, the godfather of funk) managed his band are as many as the hits they created. What made James Brown an excellent leader was not only the fact that he, according to himself, held a doctorate in funk, but his ability to not only always know exactly what his band members were playing and how they played it, but also have an idea of what and how  they were supposed to play the next part, to make the song absolutely perfect. This to us symbolizes the true essence of teamwork and is the true vision for the Skymill culture. Does this sound like something you could stand behind? Well read on, future Skymillian.

We are all about creating that unique feeling that James and his band did (focusing on the music and the dance, minus all the scandals of course), but within software development, code and programming. When our clients decides to engage Skymill in their projects we want to give them a show to remember. Not that our band isn’t great already, but in order to meet our audience’s  demands we need to add a new member, with Java or Javascript as the main instrument.

We have come to point in the Skymill narrative where not opening up an office in Copenhagen simply doesn't make sense. Ever since the start we have had clients, consultants and partners active in Copenhagen so we figured that there is no better moment than the present for our venture in Denmark to take form.

What you will be doing

Playing for Skymill as a Software Developer basically means that you have to be able to read up on and fully understand the technical requirements presented to you by our clients. You also need to have the ability to turn these requirements into beautiful implementations, mainly using Java, Javascript (Node.js) & Go. Just as James Brown used small gestures to communicate with his band, you have to be an equally excellent communicator when walking your team members and your customer through, and support them during, the entire development cycle.  

Most of all you have to let the passion you have for producing quality software shine through in your everyday work. You will be working alongside some of the most brilliant developers on the scene at the moment, so you have to be able to let them shine as brightly as you do.

Desired skills

You don’t have to have a doctorate in funk to join us, but you do need to know that the foundation of funk is built on the beat being on the “one” and the “three”. No, actually you don’t need to know that either. The important thing is that you have some past experience from working in the field with one or more of the following things:

  • Java
  • Javascript (Node.js)
  • Go
  • Agile Methodologies
  • Consultancy and general presence at customer site.


Our offer to you

Apart from working with one of the fastest growing, most flexible companies in the region, you will get a competitive salary and pension package, as well as 30 days paid vacation. You will be working alongside lots of smart and talented developers, cloud architects and project managers with extensive experience from the industry, each being a master of their own instrument. We offer a mentorship  program were you regularly meet a more senior player, showing you the ropes and focusing on your own development. We also offer an extensive training and educational program to make sure that your competence and your skills are constantly kept at top level.

Outside the office we have recurring “jam-sessions” where having fun is the main objective. We arrange AWs and other nice events to make sure that “playful professionalism” still  is our trademark. We often just hang out at the office for a beer or two after work, keeping the fridge full at all times. So if you wanna give it a shot, send us your application!

Ps. If you are wondering about all the music references, please ask us at the interview.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!
