Your role and responsibilities
As a full-stack Java developer, your responsibility is to create high-quality solutions that bring value in the areas our clients benefit the most and that way be part of creating long-lasting relationships with our clients. For example, we have worked on projects like the world’s first online service helping people make better choices, together with the City of Helsinki, which impact hundreds of thousands of citizens' daily life. Take a look at what we do and what else we've done. As Markus, a fellow Futuricean, put it: “ It’s about creating solutions that bring value and all the team members play a part in that. That combined with the flexibility and freedom provided by the Futurice culture really gives me the ability to craft my days and project practicalities to fit my needs.”
We also have your very first project in mind in the field of early childhood education! With the City of Helsinki, we have created Asti service to make enrolling in early childhood education, pre-primary education and basic education easier. The project also offered an opportunity to improve the accessibility and equality of services offered by the Education Division. Asti helps implement the city’s strategy of becoming the world’s best and most equal place to learn. In this project you get to work with a large multidisciplinary team to build the service and maintain it together with the team.
At Futurice, we firmly believe in continuous learning and support our people’s personal and professional growth. As a part of our team, you are also able to learn new technologies and gain experience in different environments to widen your tech toolbox and learn the best practices and ways of working. Furthermore you gain understanding from various different client organizations, their businesses, needs & ways of working to become a trusted advisor towards the clients. You will not only help maintain and improve existing services, but later on also plan and implement new ones.
What would help you to succeed in this role?
We hope you have some experience of one or more of these listed topics:
JavaEE is your cup of tea and you have miles on it working with related projects.
You embrace a full-stack mindset, and like working with web development frameworks like React and such.
You know your way around REST APIs, web backends, continuous integration, test automation, continuous deployment, databases and so on. Idea of working as a member of a DevOps team does not scare you.
Curiosity to develop your skills further with data or cloud services, eg. AWS or Azure is welcomed. We are happy to help you with this with our vast certification program.
We hope that good communication both with the team and the client is something you cherish dearly. Usually we look for people with fluent English, but this time especially fluent Finnish is something we value.
