Do you want to be part of a dynamic, international company that is paving the way towards the best ferry and road transport services in Europe?
If you are a solution driven person who enjoys using cutting edge technologies when solving problems, then join DFDS and become part of our digital journey.

Help us implement event driven, API first components running in the cloud
As Backend Developer you will become part of the Technology & Innovation Division and work in a cross functional agile team. Together with your colleagues, you will use your professional skills to design, build and run the best possible solutions for improving our ferry and road transport services in Europe. This is of course also done in close collaboration with our colleagues in the different business areas. You will be a key player in changing our existing software applications towards our new reference architecture, which is event driven, API first components running in the cloud which, among other things, enable us to release code many times a day.
As our new Backend Developer, you shall be ready to take responsibility for:
Design code in C# .Net which is highly available using cloud first
Use microservice architecture which leverages reusable components
Utilize understanding of continuous integration and deployment
Maintain excellent code quality and automatization
Engage, coordinate, and collaborate activities within and across agile teams
To get a better feeling of the job we have asked one of our Backend Developers to say a few words about how it is to work in Technology & Innovation:
“When I first came to DFDS I had limited experience with microservices and cloud technologies, but the culture within DFDS highly promotes continuous learning and knowledge sharing, so it didn't take long for me to gain these new skills which I would not be without. What I enjoy most about working at DFDS is the autonomous teams where an agile and fail fast mindset contributes to building awesome and modern solutions which brings value.”
- Nadia, Backend Developer, DFDS
