Junior Software Engineer at Wilhelmsen
Junior Software Engineer

Position: Junior Software Engineer
Location: Oslo, Lysaker / Hybrid

The maritime industry is at the cusp of digital transformation, and we at Wilhelmsen are here to shape the future. We are committed to shaping the maritime industry through our market leading products and services. We seek to pursue new opportunities in renewables, zero-emission shipping, and marine digitalization. We take innovation, sustainability, and unparalleled customer experiences one step further.

Through edge computing on vessels, autonomous ships, vessel performance management and onboard software for day-to-day ship management, we’re going after the vast opportunities in this otherwise traditional sector. We have software deployed and actively used on a third of the world’s merchant fleet, and we’re not stopping there.

The opportunity

At Wilhelmsen, we are committed to shaping the maritime industry through our market-leading products and services. As a junior software engineer, you will play an instrumental part in changing the way things are done in shipping. You’ll shape your workday too, working hybrid with a dedicated team of developers and product owners that own a product end-to-end.

We will help you master the tools you love and enable you to focus on creating great products and elegant solutions. In our autonomous products teams, you will get the opportunity to make decisions and learn from skilled software engineers and experts on everything from mooring ropes to supply chain management. Depending on your preference, you will work with new or established products.

“What I love about working in Wilhelmsen is the freedom to explore different technologies. It is not always just coding but understanding what the code is trying to solve. Also, having a great team that encourages learning and experimentation has helped me become a better software engineer. Also, the canteen is awesome.”
– Mohamad Sobhie, Software Engineer in Wilhelmsen

What we are looking for

We believe in autonomous teams with strong individuals owning and managing products not projects, and you’ll be at the core of one or more of our product’s future. Each team is highly independent, aiming for the applications and services to be highly decoupled, with people as the most valuable part of the equation. Hence we are looking for:

  • Individuals that are not afraid of asking why things are done in a certain way and challenging established assumptions
  • Someone that is eager to learn and experiment with new technologies or techniques – we put learning above efficiency
  • Students that are graduating with a computer science or informatics degree in 2023
  • Newly graduated Software Engineers that are in the beginning of their career

What we offer

  • A central role in a company that is shaping the maritime industry
  • The tools you need and love
  • Ownership of what you create – what you make matters
  • Competitive salary and an attractive pension plan
  • Flexible working hours and location, working in a young and self-driven team
  • Global travels, port visits and vessel sailing opportunities (we have presence in more countries than the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
  • Company cabins in both winter and summer locations
  • Our very own sports organization for employees, WIL, with activities such as kayaking, squash, football, yoga and much more (pub-crawls and skiing-trips)
  • Gym and indoor court in the basement of the offices (football every Friday at lunch)
  • Perks like a paid mobile subscription and health insurance
