How you will spend your time
The Senior Integrator role in the dev team, whilst common outside Poland is a relatively new one to Poland. Allow us a moment to describe it in detail for you. You work on large software projects only, in this case software designed for embedded devices that provide video. Firstly your role is to provide a stable working platform for all the other teams on the project. This can take 12 months or more. You provide releases of software and hardware from many sources as the best versions for the development and test parts of the team. You configure a suite of builds using components delivered from various teams. You might also be involved in triaging of major issues where it is unclear which team should fix those issues. In addition you watch for risky software coming into the build and notify teams that should know they may fall out of compliance. Ultimately, yours is a support role that leads to a high quality device serving millions of home users across Europe.
It’s a role that can suit devops or configuration managers or, of course, integrators wishing to step up.

Our Recruitment Process
We believe in moving fast and keeping things simple.
Once you submit your CV, we'll send you a short online form asking you to confirm a couple of details. Your application then goes directly to the Hiring Manager to review. We'll always try to come back to you within a few days.
We'll usually do a short first stage telephone interview. If that goes well, we'll want to set up a longer conversation to find out more. Where possible, we'll do a face-to-face interview in our offices, so that you can get a better feel for the company and your team. However, we understand the challenges of COVID-19 and have adapted our business to be completely flexible around the current situation. This means that we may do some, or all, of the interview process over video using Microsoft Teams, Skype, or GoToMeeting.
However we do it, we want you to leave us with a real feel for the role and a sense of what it's like to work with us, so we're happy to spend some quality time to answer all of your questions.
