Day-to-day work & Projects

As a member of our growing Oikotie Asunnot team, you are one of the key contributors to the new features development and the renewal of the marketplace’s architecture. With the mission to serve our customers to make smart choices in our marketplace, we deliver a first-class product thanks to dedicated teams both for web and mobile applications. Over 70% of our users use the website on mobile, so knowing the best practices for development for both desktop and mobile users is essential. Your main focus is on designing and implementing scalable and robust web services, APIs and databases in a cloud environment. Furthermore, you ensure the quality of our services in the complex hi-load environment through diverse practices like monitoring, efficient logging, automation and unit testing with code coverage. We do discovery work, conceptualization and experimentation guided by OKRs (Objectives and Key Results), develop in sprints, and release on demand.

Not everything is sweet, so here’s the main opportunity to improve

As we are scaling up our software architecture and collaborating across teams, we aim to modernize the architecture and make it more loosely coupled. Thus, your expertise is needed in analyzing the current situation and throwing in ideas.

Moreover, we’re on our way toward a deepened alignment with the other Nordic Schibsted brands and countries. If on one hand, this might lead to yet-to-be-seen scenarios in terms of actual teams’ collaboration and shared practices, this also translates into more international opportunities for both technical and personal development!


During your first few months, we help you to get on board, settle into the team, gradually take over your role and collaboratively start building new features for Oikotie Asunnot. Further down the road, approximately in 6 months, we’re eager to see you standing on your own (we’re here to have your back!). You finish backlog tasks & also contribute to building our vision, strategy and work methods. For example, your expertise is needed in product discovery initiatives where you would act as a tech expert. How do we bring even more traffic and new listings to our real-estate platform, it’s up to you and to the team!


Our Oikotie Asunnot team, gathering together 12 bright experts of developers, QA, designers, Product Managers & Engineering Manager, and the rest of the Schibsted Nordic Real Estate tech community are eagerly waiting for your first day! We are mature in agile practices and our work is guided by OKRs in a network of empowered cross-functional product teams.

How do we collaborate? We win together by celebrating and caring for each other, we encourage each other to be curious and actively develop ourselves for example with the help of LinkedIn Learning platform and Schibsted level training, and we are empowered to be fearless to share ideas and challenge ourselves to really make a difference for our customers.
