At 3Shape we work to improve treatment and diagnostics for dental patients. This is our purpose. We do this by providing innovative scanners and advanced software for the global community of dental professionals.

A great example is our intra-oral 3D scanner that makes it possible to scan a patient without any radiation or discomfort, then digitally design a new tooth using AI and finally 3D print or mill the new tooth – all within an hour. Behind the scenes, the technology is amazing and complex. Yet, for the end-user, the tools and workflows must be intuitive, robust, and fast.

At the core of this is the Dental Desktop software platform built by a team of 45 skilled employees. 3Shape is now looking for an additional talented and experienced software architect to join the team.

The platform itself is a globally deployed .NET Framework and WPF-based application running on top of a distributed document database and integrated with a long range of other systems, both by exposing and consuming web services. Additionally, the platform has several suites of automated tests, some running in Azure.

Your responsibilities

  1. Investigate: Get new workstreams off to a great start by working closely with developers, UX’ers, product and project managers from the team. This phase often implies prototyping a technical solution to learn and reduce risk.
  2. Build: Gradually handover to developers, support the team with design and code reviews and iterate on the architecture when needed. On some workstreams you may code yourself.
  3. Improve: Mentor developers and help drive improvements of tools and development processes to improve quality and flow. Occasionally, also join temporary, cross-organizational task forces to tackle really though problems or opportunities.
  4. Transform: Help to keep technical debt in check and define a technology roadmap paving the way to .NET 5/6 and cloud.
  5. Align: Engage with stakeholders both inside and outside the team. You will also be a part-time but key member of 3Shape’s Software Architecture group which aligns on company-wide architecture and runs occasional workshops and tech talks.
