Amazon, Otto, Zalando - and where have you been shopping online? We use them every day and for us they are a matter of course - the digital vastness of the Internet. But why can I redeem vouchers and pay with modern means of payment? Where do all these product suggestions come from that fit me wonderfully? This is where Software Architects & Engineers come in. They bring the core of every application to life and fill it with things that accompany the digital world.

What does a Software Architect & Engineer do at Unic?

As a Software Engineer, you will work closely with the Software Architect to implement new functionalities for our customer websites. We work in different teams and depending on the product with a number of programming languages such as Java, .NET or PHP. In one of them you see your strength, which you bring to the projects. Thanks to your work as a Software Developer, the customer website is given exciting new functions that enhance the user experience for the visitors. In addition, together with the Frontend Developers, your newly created business logic will be given a face. Together we successfully accompany the digital transformation of our customers - from the inside of the application.

As a Software Architect you form the basic framework of the application and decide with other Software Architects for sustainable solutions, on the basis of which modern websites and applications with state-of-the-art functions will be built in the coming years. In addition to technical consulting, you will work closely with the Requirements Engineers, translate business requirements into technical blueprints for our software engineers and incorporate non-functional requirements such as performance, stability and modularity into your architecture.

How do Software Architect & Engineer work at Unic?

As Software Engineers, the first steps towards implementing new functionalities are jointly defined in the team. Through agile process models, we coordinate our work on a daily basis, support each other in the form of pair programming and reviews, and jointly show our customers the latest progress on their websites and applications. We rely on modern technologies and wide-ranging toolings, which support us daily in creating high-quality software, wether for online shops or corporate websites.

As a Software Architect, you analyze the application and its requirements in advance in order to find suitable architectures for future development. Using different templates such as Arc42, you record the basic decisions and document the underlying architecture in the form of a Software Architecture Specification (SAS) in Confluence. But also during the implementation you are an important part of the whole team and support the Requirement Engineers as well as Software Engineers in defining technical tasks to comply with the architecture.
