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.
What can Futurice offer you
Probably the best part about working at Futurice are the colleagues. You get to work with some of the most brilliant and talented professionals of the digital world. In Futurice, software engineers work closely together with our designers, analysts, and business consultants, as well as with our customers from various industries. Our aim is to grow the next generation of digital leaders, and that's why this is the place to be for learning.
You will be developing top-notch services in an environment that promotes constant self-improving and sharing ideas with colleagues, through team work, and also event or conference participations. Our public reference cases should give you an idea about what kind of concrete things you could be working with.
We also offer a competitive compensation, and a work culture that has been awarded internationally. Our core values are care, trust, transparency, and continuous improvement that we try to embrace and share as much as possible.
We come from all over the world
Our work environment is international even though our culture is built on Nordic roots. We have 40 different nationalities in our Helsinki office. So if you feel like working with people with diverse cultural backgrounds and clients with a global reach, we are the right place for you! Naturally English is our language of choice.
If at some point you start feeling that a longer stint at one of our international offices sounds interesting, there are plenty of opportunities for that too, for example through our expat programmes. During the expat period you can continue growing your core tech competence in one of our more mature offices e.g. in Berlin, Munich or Stockholm or if you feel like it, you can try some completely new roles in one of our newly established offices which are more in a start-up mode e.g. in Stuttgart or Oslo.
What do we appreciate
So, what are we looking for then? We are looking for people who have strong programming background, and good motivation to learn more. It's hard to define exactly what that means, but there are some signs that we are looking for:
You have a solid understanding of programming and computers: We don't expect our people to be deeply experienced on computer hardware, as we rarely do embedded systems. But understanding what a processor and memory does, and how binary code, Assembly, C or higher abstraction languages differ from each other, is definitely something that a programmer should know. You don't have to be a top expert on the subject, but you should know at least enough to understand the principles well.
You know at least a few programming languages well: Know, as in, you can create something useful with the language from scratch. Not just Hello World, but something that has an actual use. You understand the basic paradigms of the languages. You know the strengths and the weaknesses, and you know where a certain language is used in the real world. Most of all, you can compare the languages to each other, and tell the essential differences.
You are excited about programming: Yes, motivation is very important in your daily work. Not just for yourself, but for us as an employer as well. We want our people to enjoy their daily work. And that's why you should find the practical work is exciting. When you have an internal motivation to learn new things, facing even the more difficult situations is not a problem. Also, when programming is something near to your heart, you care about the quality of your own work.
You care about the end users: This is something particularly important to us. We work with digital services, meaning that the software we build has human users. It's not enough to create technically well built software, when in the end, the success of the product depends on how user-friendly the end result is. It's not necessarily about being a designer, but rather understanding who is going to use the software and why.
You bring great things to our culture: This is the part that is hard to define. But it is as important as the technical requirements. You can take a look at our culture pages, our free-time open source sponsorship and pro-bono work, or blog posts to get a better understanding of what it means to be and work in Futurice.
We value people with different kinds of backgrounds
If you got excited, don't just tell us where you have worked or studied. Tell us who you are, and where you are heading at. Describe what you already know, and what you will learn next. We'd love to hear from you!
Please note: We are currently not able to offer visa sponsorships for Tampere, so unfortunately we can't take applications from outside EU/EEA forward.
