Application Process

What You Need To Know

When applying for a position at SIG, the first thing you are asked to do is to fill out the online application form. Here you provide your basic details and you can upload your CV and cover letter. This is your first chance to distinguish yourself by writing a proper CV and Cover Letter mentioning the key values of SIG.

Getting software right 
is what drives each and every one of us. Our culture and Values encompass all required to achieve this in a sophisticated and ethical manner. Our Core Values and culture are the foundation of our Code of Conduct and Business. Our Culture is the framework that allows our Values to thrive: Truth, Trust, Passion and Impact form the basis of our Culture. 

If we see a good fit with you and the position, we invite you for a first interview, usually conducted by HR. In this interview, we will assess your skills and capabilities. Before this, you are typically asked to complete the Predictive Index Behavioural assessment (PI) and a Predictive Index Learning Indicator (PI LI) test.

Following the first interview, you will usually get an invite for a second interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager will make the decision for 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.

The PI Behavioural Assessment (PI) identifies and categorizes workplace motivating drives to provide deep insights into the behaviours and motivations of colleagues and future employees.


Should you feel none of these positions match your interests or your experience, please send your cv and motivation letter to work@sig.eu.

Well-being of our employees!

Healthy work- and lifestyles.

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.


Software Development @ SIG

Getting software right for a healthier digital world is what we are about

The world is increasingly reliant on software, but the root cause of actual risks of the software is unknown. Can you trust the technology your business depends on? SIG will help you expose hidden risks in your source code to assure full control over your digital transformation and legacy modernization


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. 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.

 

Code quality analysis through a ISO certified structured approach. Tools & expertise to understand over 300 programming languages. Benchmarking software systems against 33 billion Lines of Code.

Consulting @ SIG

What we stand for

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.


Where you come in

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.

Product & Innovation @ SIG

What we stand for

Our product and innovation teams are where the future of our products is determined. They receive input from all sides of the industry: from our consultants, they learn what's happening at our clients and which ideas actually stand the test of practical application and which don't. 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 so see what's going on in academia. From all these inputs they distill the engineering best practices that can be coded into Sigrid, our Software Assurance Platform and work with our development team to further improve and expand it.
