Following the first interview, you will usually get an invite for a second interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager will decide on hiring you. In this interview, you are assessed more specific for qualities related to the position.
If you’re chosen for the position you applied for, SIG will keep your assessment and test results, which will support your on-boarding and future development within the company. If you’re not chosen, we will delete your data and assessment results, no later than 90 days after you have applied.

We provide management with a fact-based insight into their current IT situation, along with pragmatic and actionable recommendations on how to improve that situation. We know to refactor code, govern software projects effectively, use modern tooling and development platforms, apply software metrics, and how to control cost. We perform both in-depth technical analysis and management level financial analysis and consolidate the two. Our research team advances the state of the art in software research.
And we’re just getting started.
SIG provides independent, fact based and impartial advice. Honesty, Sincerity and Clarity are important guides. We start a project by analysing and understanding the actual intention of the customer. As a value partner we do not believe in one single version of the truth but in the value of our findings. Knowledge of the context of a system is important to assess its true value.
We are always looking for certitude. Reliability, integrity and loyalty help us to achieve this. Our ambition of Getting software right asks for trust. Trust in each other to be able to deliver the best possible results. Our customers need to be able to trust in the independence and reliability of SIG. Trust in humankind is the basis of success. Trust grows with certitude. That is why we want to measure and test our assessments and analysis in order to ensure true customer value.
Craftsmanship, fun, persistence, drive and inspiration are the foundation of our passion. Getting software right is our passion, allowing us to improve software for organisations.
We do not complete our assignment until we know we have made an impact at the customer. Concrete, interactive, customer oriented and tangible. We concentrate on the facts, concrete and measurable results. We believe there is always a right and that this is dependent of the context. We take ownership and are the valued partner making the customer successful.
Our Development team is continuously improving and expanding Sigrid. This is no small task: we are adding new analysis capabilities; we are growing and developing our front ends to become more intuitive, integrated and feature-rich; we are preparing our backend to scale and handle more code, faster. As you might expect, we hold quality in high regard: we measure the quality of our code, our process and our operations, more than you might be used to. We code, write tests, review, discuss and refactor if needed.
As you might expect, we hold quality in high regard: we measure the quality of our code our process and our operations, more than you might be used to. We code, write tests, review, discuss and refactor if needed. We don’t just spit out features and move on to the next thing. We automate things wherever we can and throw out stuff we no longer need. In the long run, quality equals speed. Some data you may be interested in: we have a Java backend, Angular/Typescript frontend. Our pipeline starts in Gitlab, which produces docker containers handled by Nexus deployed on a Puppet-managed cloud infrastructure.
As a consultant, you will work with technology leaders to help them get their software right. This is all about improving quality, reducing risks and controlling costs of their business-critical software systems. In some cases, clients want us to take a deep dive into their situation and provide them with advice on how to move forward, in others, they want us on board for a longer period of time to help them make their transformation projects a success. The diversity of clients and projects gives you a unique and very broad perspective on the software industry, probably more so than anywhere else. This diversity may test your context-switching skills at times, but now that you're not out there on your own. Not only do we always work in teams, you're also armed with the most advanced tools and products available, courtesy of our innovation, product, development and research teams, or 'team CTO' as we affectionately call them.
As a core member of the software consultancy team, you will analyse the systems that are being assessed. Your role is to get a good understanding of the system in a short period of time, and validate your findings and hypotheses with the development teams.
Our product and innovation teams are where the future of our products is determined. They receive input from all sides of the industry: they learn what's happening at our clients, and which ideas actually stand the test of practical application and which don't. They work together with our consultants to make sure our products are aligned to client expectations. They keep tabs on what's happening at our competitors, and where the industry is heading as a whole. They work with our research team to turn innovative research into real products. From all these inputs, they determine how to turn the collective knowledge of SIG into something that can be added to Sigrid, our Software Assurance Platform. They then work with our development team to further improve and expand these ideas, and with our consultants to deliver them to our customers.
Our research department offers a unique opportunity in a challenging industrial context, focusing on innovation and pragmatic solutions for software improvement, while still maintaining scientific standards of quality. The Software Improvement Group has scientific research at its core, with a dedicated research team hosting several PhD and Postdoc researchers, several active collaborations with academic partners, and plenty of colleagues with PhD degrees.
Our research team advances the state of the art in software research. SIG has ample experience in hosting Master-thesis projects, as we host between 5 and 10 MSc students each year. We are proud of the 8.5 average graduation grade of our interns. Also, many current employees of SIG have been a research intern with us in their early careers.
SIG is all about getting software right for a healthier digital world - and it all starts with the well-being of our employees! Glad to have Simple Check with us these next couple of weeks, giving all of us a health check, plus good advice on how to keep up with healthy work- and lifestyles.
