Before diving deep into the back-end, a few things you should know about Qvik : we are elbow-deep in the consultancy business, but above all in the people business. We create digital solutions for millions of end users every day by doing design, development and consulting with our clients. And not just any clients, but the most desirable ones in the consumer market, such as Oura , Säästöpankki, Terveystalo, and Sanoma, to name just a few.
Our international community consists of 100+ designers, developers, and consultants based in Helsinki and Stockholm. We are not a typical top-down corporation but an inclusive work community where every individual can affect how we roll. We are 100% owned by our people, the Qvikies.
Now to the back-end: Some years ago, our developers noted that our customers’ back-ends were not as good as they could be, and thus began our journey to the cloud. Today, we have 15+ back-end engineers advising customers on technology choices and tackling the most complex technical challenges in their projects. But we want to be bigger and better, so we are searching for Senior Masters of Backend to join us from the beginning of 2023.
You will work with infrastructure, microservices and scalable systems to help our clients build payment systems, efficient data pipelines, and cloud adoptions, among other things. The work is done in our customers’ development teams, usually together with other Qvikies. The end products you are working with are something you would be proud to show to your family and friends – products you want to use yourself.
We don’t deliver off-the-shelf tricks, but build new solutions from scratch to meet our customers' demands. So you will work more with cutting-edge software and less with the darkest back-end legacy – joy!
Who are we looking for?
Technically speaking, our back-end engineers are skilled in Python, Node.js, Typescript, Java, Go, Kubernetes and Docker on top of AWS or GCP. Besides experience with modern cloud platforms, we also value the ability to build CI/CD pipelines and automate cloud deployments. But, as a seasoned techie, you already know that amazing code is just one side of the coin. As a full-fledged consultancy, we are definitely interested in candidates who can demonstrate awesome client communication in English and Finnish and the relationship skills needed for day-to-day engagement with their customers.
The people you work with will be from different backgrounds and have different strengths. This means that we cherish a culture of open-mindedness, equality and empathy toward all people. At the moment, we are reinventing our DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) practices on the company level to make Qvik the best place to work for everyone. But there’s always more work to be done, and we hope that you want to be a part of it.
We want to care more. We are focusing on creating an even more inspiring and safe culture, learning by doing, deepening our professionalism, and building an even stronger community.
But perks and promises won’t pay the bills. The salary for this position will be somewhere between €4,800-7,000/month + bonuses , depending on your skills and experience. You will also have the possibility to become a Qvik shareholder.
Our standard benefits package is also pretty nice: lunch, commuter, culture and sports benefits, and a bike benefit. Obviously, a solid IT budget and the tools of your choice. We also offer occupational health care with extra health insurance, travel and accident insurance, a remote office from January to March (in 2023, Mauritius & the Canary Islands) and many company-supported sports and hobby opportunities with other Qvikies.
Supporting the Qvikies' health and work-life balance is essential for us. We also offer sick-child care services for smoother sailing over the flu season, as well as personal support for life challenges via the Auntie service. And don't forget the community glue, aka parties – we are pretty good at setting up some jams, too :)
In addition, we offer a low-hierarchy culture, flexible working hours, plenty of projects with opportunities for growth, learning, and so much more.
OK, what next?
