Skills & Requirements

Ready to start the next chapter in your career journey? You’re in the right place. We’re always happy to hear from people who are eager to learn and grow, and share our values. Welcome home.

We are looking for talented backend-focused web developers. People for whom tech choices are about finding a balance of creating scalable, maintainable and modern digital services – and getting things done effectively. As a senior, you are responsible for being a hands on lead developer in projects, you might be coaching others to learn more, and definitely you'd be constantly learning new technologies yourself.

Here are some practical things that would definitely help in this job

You're right at home with web backends. You have probably always been a bit curious about how things work under the hood. You have likely dabbled with web frameworks, continuous integration, test automation, continuous deployment and databases. It's not just about getting the data to flow from the database to the user's screen, it's about getting to know the technologies, understanding the layers and finally delivering code to production. Assembling a functional, robust and maintainable system is a challenge you are eager to undertake.

You are fluent in one or more programming languages and ecosystems: maybe JavaScript and Node.js, Java/Scala/Clojure, or C#. At the end of the day, the technology is but a means to and end, and your willingness to learn new things is what counts. You enjoy creating elegant solutions to today's problems, and have fun while doing it.

You're looking for a new challenge. You have a desire to work and collaborate with the best developers and designers out there, and want to have colleagues with whom you can have meaningful conversations about technology and the world around them. All team members need to be ambitious self-starters and have a desire to be part of a workplace with a lean, flat structure. Individuals are constantly given the opportunity to learn and grow in collaboration with wonderfully nice and extremely talented people.

We promise you:

  • Interesting domestic and international clients with a possibility to make an impact in their digital future

  • Architecturally challenging projects, with freedom and responsibility regarding the client’s technology choices

  • Meaningful ways of working and the possibility to influence them

  • Tools to balance your work with the rest of your life in the best possible way

  • Zero bureaucracy, full transparency

In addition to what comes with the Futurice DNA and working culture, we have our fair share of perks and benefits. You will get, for example, a good insurance coverage and frequent bonuses in addition to your base salary.

You might also find some of these interesting:

  • Futurice’s unique culture

  • Sponsorship for doing open-source projects on free time

  • Talented team to mentor and do sparring with

  • FutuHike: work in another office for a week

  • Company support for learning, be it buying books, online courses or travelling to conferences abroad

  • Personal IT budget, allowing you to e.g. regularly update your phone
