Looking for the next adventure in your career? You are in the right place! We are always happy to get to know people who love learning and have their heart in the right place.
We thought there is no better way to tell about a job than hear it from a potential future colleague
So we asked one of our senior backend developers about their job. Let’s hear what Markus Kauppila has to say:
“As a senior backend developer focus mostly on creating technical solutions and having good time working a collaborative multidisciplinary teams where I’m not snapped to certain role but I can stretch my skills to front-end development and have discussions with the client and designers on the purpose and goals of the service we are building. It’s a cliche but it’s not really about tech. 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 our company culture really gives me the opportunity to craft my days and project practicalities to fit to my needs. And not just that, it’s also the freedom to choose what I would like to work on and how do it tech-wise that really keeps the work fresh for myself and provides interesting challenges.”
How’s your career journey so far?
We welcome people with a strong programming background, and a strong drive to learn more. You don’t have to be a guru yet, just aiming to grow into one.
You have a solid understanding of modern software development. Understanding and knowing how to build software in a cloud environment from the actual coding all the way to setting up deployment pipelines, is definitely something that a programmer should know. You don’t have to be a top expert on the subject, but you should know enough to understand the principles well.
You know at least a few programming languages well. You can create something useful with the languages from scratch. You understand the basic paradigms of the languages and know how to connect your code to databases and other external systems. You know their strengths and the weaknesses, and you know where a certain language is used in the real world.
You are excited about programming. Motivation is the key! We want people to enjoy their daily work. That's why you should find the practical work exciting. When you have an internal motivation to learn new things, facing even the more difficult situations is not a problem. And most of all, you are a team player.
You put people who use the services first. This is something particularly important to us. We work with digital services, meaning that we build software for people to use in their everyday lives. It is about understanding who is going to use the software and why.
You bring something extra to our culture. Our culture defines us. It stands on our shared values of Care, Trust, Transparency and Continuous Improvement. It is the glue that keeps us together, and makes us stronger by each talent we discover. You should not just fit in, but embrace and enrich our culture.
