Skills & Requirements
We thought there is no better way to tell about a job than hear it from a potential future colleague
So we asked a couple of our senior full-stack developers their views on their job. Let’s hear what Oskar Ehnström and Carita Niskanen have to say: .
"For us, the daily work as full-stack developers is mostly about solving problems. Some days that means figuring out the most efficient algorithm for a particularly tricky piece of code or reviewing PRs. Often it means asking a lot of questions to figure out what the important problem to solve is and how to solve it in the best possible way for the client. Meetings with the team are often part of the day, and keeping them productive and engaging is everyone's responsibility. Finally, discussing with the client and explaining what we’re doing and making sure our work fits with the rest of the organisation.
In addition to client work we can also participate in developing the company by participating in some internal projects and different workforces. All the internal work is based on a person's own wishes and the ability to develop their own skills. At Futurice people are encouraged to actively take ownership of the company and that way you can really get to feel like you are a part of a tight group.”
Here are some practical things that would definitely help succeeding in this job
Experience in being a hands-on lead developer in projects and/or coaching others with their work and learning.
Love for creating delightful web applications. A browser is not just a rendering tool, it's your medium of choice. You know how to build a smooth single-page app from the ground up in e.g. React, Angular, or Vue.
Knowing what it takes to have your client talk with a back-end over a REST API, and create one when needed.
Setting up microservices and backends with e.g. Node.js, Scala or Python is familiar to you. You know how to minify, bundle, and get your code running on e.g. Heroku, AWS or Azure.
Interest in constantly learning new technologies and business domains. Flexible environment that encourages continuous learning is more your cup of tea than sticking to a rigid skill set or tech stack.
Appreciating and practicing good communication. You are fluent at least in English, Finnish is a definite plus.
At the end of the day, the technology is but a means to an end, and your willingness to learn new things is what counts.
