About Fortnox Academy

We offer you an opportunity to experience life as a systems developer at Fortnox, where you can develop on both a personal and professional level. We are looking for dedicated and self-motivated systems developers who want to help take Fortnox to the next level.

For a period of six months, you will get to know Fortnox through training and hands-on experience together with a team of other trainees. You will learn everything from being part of a development team with agile processes to daily stand-ups, scrums, demos and much more. During your time here, your trainee team will be working on assignments that have a direct impact on Fortnox’s continued success.

Through these assignments with your trainee team, you will learn about the company and what software development involves at Fortnox, and work on your own personal development. Throughout the entire program, you will have supervisors to guide you through your assignment, and who will support, advise and challenge you.

At the end of your trainee program, we will evaluate the period together and offer you a position if both parties are in agreement.

About you

To become part of the team and Fortnox, you need to:

  • Be in your final semester of an IT degree program.
  • Be able to work 25–50 percent while studying. Starting Januari 2020.
  • Have good knowledge of Java, Javascript, PHP or other programming languages, and be passionate about software development.
  • If you are interested in, and have tested, functional programming and Reactive Extensions, you will like our Javastack, which is lightweight and uses modern frameworks such as RxJava.

As a software developer at Fortnox, you are self-motivated, ambitious and always eager to learn new skills. You enjoy interacting with others and building relationships.

Fortnox and change go hand-in-hand, and you must enjoy being part of that, even if it goes fast sometimes. Most importantly, your desire to succeed must be greater than your fear of failure.
