Every tech position at Futurice. Ever.
Join us! Are you looking for the next chapter in your career journey? You’ve come to the right place. We are always happy to hear from people who love learning and have their heart in the right place. Welcome home.
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 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.
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!
