What will your role be?

  • You will work as part of a flexible global team in the SolidWorks R&D division. You will collaborate with the Product Definition and User Experience design teams.
  • Working primarily in JavaScript, we lead the development of the user experience of our web apps, working from the user’s click or tap on-screen to 3D interaction, providing geometry selection and modification tools, dialogs, menus, and feedback to the user, as well as providing toolkits to teams developing specific apps.
  • This is a position at the forefront of the user interaction with our Computer Aided Design apps, solving real problems and providing high-quality usability to professional CAD users who spend many hours a day interacting in 3D with our software – and all in a web browser.
  • You will develop and deliver functionality that is continuously integrated and validated by automated testing. You will provide focused automated tests in order to guarantee that the code is “always ready” to ship, without blocking our ability to innovate.
  • To support our toolkits, you would also deliver validation interfaces to other teams as needed. Finally, you will contribute to analytics to ensure that our software behaves as intended for the customer, with high performance and reliability.
  • You will support and champion the use of the e-apps on mobile and touch devices, ensuring a consistently high user experience on any device.

Working as part of a team of very mixed skills, there is a huge opportunity to learn or use existing skills in related areas.

  • Deliver the software and respond promptly to issues found in testing in order to deliver software on time and on quality, expanding automated testing to cover new issues.

Your key success factors:
