FINN.no is looking for a highly motivated and experienced technologist with a good balance of technical depth and interpersonal skills. Ideally, you’re someone with a strong technical programming background, but you also have a broader view on how to strategically develop our technology and teams to meet new business needs. Our architects are highly technical, able to discuss most challenges and solutions with the teams and developers but leave coding of mission - critical services to the teams normally (however, contributing with code allowed!).

As we strive for more diversity in our tech-teams, we encourage women to apply.

What does an Architect do at FINN?
The Architect group is responsible for maintaining our architectural vision and direction, which is created together with teams. Part of an architect’s job is to have a dialogue, listen to our developers, and explain and support the teams in implementing the architectural vision.

FINN has a proven history of utilizing technology to enable new business opportunities. As architects, we have a central role in supporting, implementing, and pushing the company’s strategy. We work together with the business and product departments to find technical solutions that give the right impact.

One of our missions is to cultivate knowledge sharing across teams. We do this by documenting good practices, hosting workshops, and holding lectures. Sometimes we perform Proof-of-Concepts on new technologies and techniques to see if they add value to our company. This enables us, as a company, to introduce new technology successfully.

Sometimes we join a team, or a task force, for a period of time to strengthen a particularly important effort. We contribute in various ways, sometimes as coaches, sometimes taking the lead of the process, and we love it when we get the opportunity to write code. But it is not expected that you code as part of your normal workday.

The Architect group consists of four experienced engineers. We guide teams when they face complex issues and will perform code and design reviews of their solutions on demand and settle discussions if needed.

Who are you?
You are a person people tend to seek for technical advice. You naturally work across multiple teams, and find good solutions across them. In this role, you will work with people from all parts of the company in order to understand which business needs we have, what technical challenges we have and what solutions exist. You are passionate about sharing information and you welcome different perspectives. In combination with the ability to take decisions and present a clear technical direction, these two skillsets will be critical in order to succeed in this role.

You will also take an active role in cultivating a community of people working with architecture, and ensuring the organisation has enough capacity and the right abilities to do meaningful work within the field.

Minimum qualifications

  • Solid background from programming and knowledge of one or more programming languages (we use mostly Java/Kotlin/Scala, Javascript, Python and Go)
  • Hands-on experience with crafting scalable, flexible, distributed and resilient systems
  • You are able to take charge of a problem, analyze and discuss different options with multiple people and teams, and present recommendations or decide on technical solutions in a clearly way.
  • You get people to trust you, really listen to them, and show you care about their success.
  • You love to write code, but acknowledge that writing code is not the way you deliver in this role.

Bonus qualifications

  • Knowledge about Domain Driven Design

  • Knowledge across the entire stack, front-end, services, and persistence

  • Knowledge about build pipelines, event driven architecture, data on the inside versus outside and data pipelines

  • You communicate well with both technical and business audience

  • Experience with working in large organisations with many development teams

  • Business understanding, and knowledge about and interest in organisational theory

  • You stay up to date with technology and always look for a more efficient solution

  • Experience with cloud computing is a huge plus (security, infrastructure, storage, platforms, data, cloud native service)
  • Experience with data architecture, data platforms, data mesh knowledge
  • You are able to see how you can contribute independently to a problem, taking initiatives and delivering results (see a fuzzy problem, and attack it)
