We are looking for software developers who are motivated by working on software that has a measurable impact on business.
Who we are
Columbia Road builds seamless and commercially effective customer journeys that create impact. We help our clients get more revenue and more customers, but also to sell better. Our tight-knit team consists of business consultants who understand software and of highly talented business-driven design and technology specialists.
Currently, we have over 20 nationalities working in the company and the official language is English. Our company spirit is one of a true start-up, but with a twist of hard-core experience. We believe in giving a lot of responsibility and freedom to our employees. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the heart of our essence and everyone at Columbia Road is committed to these values.
Columbia Road has grown from 0 to over 140 exceptionally talented people in 6 years and in two countries. We are proud of the high customer satisfaction we have achieved as a result of focusing on people and creating concrete, measurable business impact for our clients every day.

Columbia Road is a part of the Futurice family of companies.
As a consultant at Columbia Road, you will be working in the core of our clients’ businesses; advising, designing and implementing the tech needed to drive the business forward. You build businesses with code. You build storefronts, APIs and the integrations needed to glue them together. Your focus is likely on some part of the stack, be it frontend, backend or something like complex integrations but you aren’t too afraid to get your hands dirty with the other areas when necessary. You are comfortable working with a variety of programming languages and technology stacks - or at least you are interested to jump in and learn new skills. Columbia Road is not trying to provide the same solution to everyone, and sometimes that requires quite a bit of adapting from our side.
The focus on digital sales still means that we are tackling a large variety of projects. These range from ecommerce platforms and data platform projects to site optimisation and mobile development. For a few concrete examples of our tech cases, take a look at the Servaali case of a new microservice business-to-business shop, the full webstore renewal project for Oura, and our work for Matsmart in the optimisation of an existing store.
All of our consultants work directly with client stakeholders to build a good understanding of their business and its challenges. While development is probably where most of your time goes, we are in the business of creating impact for our clients, and that means spending some time to understand how the business functions. We help our clients in translating business opportunities into actionable plans and concrete solutions. Read more about how we code and design high performing digital sales channels.
We work as diverse teams of digital sales experts, tailored to each project. In some projects, this means working as part of a larger development team, while sometimes the setup needed is a growth team. As we believe that best results arise from employee freedom, all teams have wide latitude to choose the best tools and ways of working for themselves. This also means that your technology stack and specific role may vary between projects. We see this as a great opportunity for professional growth and are looking for colleagues who also value this. The more experience you have, the more you'll be able to take responsibility for your client projects and help other Roadies grow as well.
We pay extra attention to professional growth and learning at Columbia Road. We encourage you to follow your own points of interest, and we do this proactively. Together we'll continuously think about the best career advancement possibilities for you, both during and in between your client projects. Our internal learning opportunities come in many forms: events, courses, certifications, and afterworks, for example.
The recruitment process usually has 1-3 steps during which we get to know who you are and what motivates you. You will learn more about Columbia Road and get to meet different people from our company. You'll have the opportunity to present highlights from your career and tell us about your skills, roles, and learnings.
We’re committed to creating a good match between you and our organisation, and want to spend time to get it right. Sometimes, an assignment might be given to you to complete between interviews.
When we’re done with the face-to-face discussions, we’ll contact the people you have chosen as references.
We hope to hear from you soon!
NOTE: We are currently not able to hire outside of Sweden, so you need to already live in Sweden to apply.
