You might also work as a project lead for agile development work and/or advisory/design assignments. When there’s an opportunity, you’ll enjoy getting involved as a hands-on consultant yourself.
We’re looking for someone with several years’ experience in the Finnish market. Maybe you’ve got a Master’s Degree in IT, Management, Software Production or Business. Or perhaps you’ve acquired equivalent skills elsewhere or in other ways. We’d be particularly interested in those with experience working with or around software development, design, data science or agile development work.
It could be none of those things – tell us why you’re the right person. We’re listening.

An understanding of client briefings and how to qualify opportunities
Experience in leading (client) projects
A learning mindset
Finnish language skills would be very helpful

One Nice-to-have would be excellent. Two would blow our minds. Three may bring us to tears. Your superpower is not on the list? Surprise and convince us!
We expect you to understand the tech landscape and what it takes to build digital platforms, products and services for demanding clients. Experience in leading projects is beneficial too, either as a project lead/scrum master or as a product owner. The most important experience for this role is creating and closing project opportunities by listening close to the clients’ problems and goals.
Finally, it is very important that your mindset fits with Futurice’s culture and organisation. That doesn’t mean we’re all the same. In fact it’s the opposite. You’ll need to be comfortable as an excellent team player in our highly social, silo-free and transparent organisation. We’ve removed – or never had – many boxes, constraints or restrictive functional roles and we’d like someone who is ready to thrive in a work culture that values freedom and mutual trust.
