Key about your team
Your team is a modern scrum team within the Product Development department and develops one or more modules in our non-life insurance product Axon. It is the responsibility of your team to deliver a high-value, high-quality product that really fits the needs of our customers. By creating and maintaining state-of-the-art software that models the insurers’ business, your team provides the best solution that supports insurance processes.

As a self-organizing scrum team, your team organizes their work in such a way that customer satisfaction is achieved through developing high quality software in an optimal way.

Key about your role
As a design engineer within a multi-disciplinary scrum team you use your design skills to determine what is next for our product. Together with the product owner, customers, and other stakeholders you design software that meets their needs. Together with developers and testers you make software that satisfies.

You use your design skills and knowledge of technology to create solutions. Not only to solve a problem or fulfill a need, but also to add value for the non-life insurance industry as a whole. You actively help Keylane to become the leading SaaS software provider.

During your career path you start as an engineer within your team, with a focus on the functional aspects of our product. By testing new functionality you get to know the ins and outs of the software, and by assisting in making design decisions and documenting them you learn about the way we design software. You learn and apply standards, guidelines, best practices, and innovations.

You grow into a proficient solution designer who analyses processes, identifies requirements, and participates in workshops. By collaborating with other designers you help to improve the way we work.

During your daily work you pick up design tasks and tests in your team’s sprint. You give demos of new functionality to customers and colleagues, and assist our delivery teams in implementing our software for customers. You write clear documentation for both internal and external stakeholders. Most importantly, you support your team’s developers and testers in realizing your designs, and use their feedback and support to improve your designs.

Key about you

We think it is important that;
  • You have at least a college degree
  • You are ready to kick-start your career, or you already have some relevant design experience and want to grow your skills
  • You have a passion for IT and are eager to learn new things
  • You are a team player and work pro-actively

  • You are fluent in English. German proficiency is a plus
