Senior Software Developer - Stockholm

Salary Competitive

Our impact-driven tech community is looking for senior software developers who are motivated by working on software that has a measurable effect 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. We believe that technology is a tool that we need to master, but the actual business impact of the service is the first thing we want to understand and select proper tooling after that.

Columbia Road is a part of the Futurice family of companies.

The job & what you’d be working on

As a senior software consultant at Columbia Road, you will be working in a high-impact role in the core of our clients’ businesses:

  • You’ll code, build storefronts, and work with APIs and integrations
  • You’ll advise, design, and implement the tech needed to drive business results forward
  • You’ll be a trusted advisor and a sparring partner to important client stakeholders
  • Your contribution will have a significant effect on the client’s success

Roadies work as diverse teams of digital sales experts, tailored to each project. The more experience you have, the more you'll be able to take responsibility for your client projects and coach other Roadies. You’d often be responsible for the completion of a challenging project or activities in which you take ownership of a team.

Columbia Road’s focus on digital sales still means that we are tackling a large variety of projects ranging from ecommerce platforms and data platform projects to site optimisation and mobile development. To mention a few:

  • We help Elisa run modern online sales in a fully integrated team
  • We’re helping Vahterus on their digital sales transformation journey
  • We’re working with Posti on a scalable ecommerce platform.

Our ways of working

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 and the people in the client organisation. Even as your focus is likely on some part of the stack (frontend, backend, integrations or other), we value people who aren’t too afraid to get their hands dirty with the other areas when necessary.

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. When it comes to remote versus on-site, we are flexible and always work according to what’s best for our clients - we hope that you can commit to spending at least a few days a week at our client’s premises.

We offer a wide range of learning opportunities as continuous learning is one of our core values, therefore you will be offered various learning opportunities in your daily work as well as internal learning events, training, and meetups to share and enlarge your knowledge.

Professional benefits for you

  • A high-impact role as a trusted advisor to important stakeholders - your contribution will create a significant impact on the client’s success
  • Working directly with the client - no middle management involved
  • A clear focus on digital sales, in both B2C and B2B
  • You'll have the best people to work with and learn from in a truly flat organisation

  • Participating in account management and framing our sales offering, should you be interested

  • Broad experience in building web services
  • Experience in building web services and familiarity with both frontend and backend development. Your focus can be more on the frontend, backend or broader systems but you aren’t afraid to jump in at any point. Languages familiar to you could include e.g. JavaScript (and frameworks such as React, Angular, or Vue.js), Scala, Go, Python, Java, or PHP.
  • Understanding of the entire web development process (design, development, deployment, operations)
  • Great communication skills
  • Analytical mindset and problem-solving skills
  • Past experience in consulting or digital commerce would be very valuable but is not necessary

  • We offer a wide range of possibilities to shape your role as you see the best fit for your personal development goals and growth
  • You'll have the best people to work with and learn from in a genuinely flat organization

  • Tools to balance your work with the rest of your life in the best possible way
  • Competitive salary
  • Additional pension (7% of monthly salary for full-time employees)
  • Wellness benefit
  • Pick the laptop and phone of your choosing
  • Recurring training & learning sessions
  • Company excursion trips (e.g., last autumn to London)
  • Compensation for working on open source or social programs in your free time

Working at
Columbia Road

Columbia Road is a digital growth consultancy challenging the old ways of running digital businesses. We exist to increase our clients’ revenue and help them get more customers in the digital era. Our team consists of business consultants who understand business-driven design, tech, strategy and growth. We believe in giving a lot of responsibility and freedom to our employees. There’s a common misunderstanding that happy and satisfied employees are automatically motivated employees. We don’t see things that way. Happy and satisfied employees are an important priority for us, but we think causal relationship is reversed: people are happy and satisfied when they have work that motivates them. For us, an employee’s happiness is the primary goal, not a tool for raising productivity or profitability. We want to empower our employees to become a better version of themselves and to have more of an impact on the world. We see happiness & satisfaction as end goals, not starting points. That being said we love to laugh a lot, play some tunes at the office and grab a few drinks after work. What kind of work is motivating in our context? People yearn for purpose in their work and want it to have meaning that creates value: purpose, for people and organisations, comes from making an impact on the world. Meaning & significance comes from providing value to someone else — in our case, clients. Clients (not us) define the value of our actions, always. Jobs at
