Technology Advisor

At Futurice, we create digital services that people love. Together with our clients, we co-create transformational businesses and services to redefine the way humans and technology interact. We show the direction. We design customer experiences. We code. We make you the culture you need. We make future digital businesses.

As a Technology Advisor you’ll be part of a talented team with diverse backgrounds and leave your mark on our growing and developing consulting competence as we expand on the continent and beyond.

Technology Advisors at Futurice are generalists working across industries to help clients solve their important challenges in business and technology. They work with digital services, software development and improving how IT is done in big organizations. Technology Advisors have a deep understanding in technology and a toolset of modern frameworks and methodologies. They might have years of experience in software development but have extended the scope of problems to tackle as they also want to see impact being made to organizational issues. Corporations are slow but Technology Consultants have ideas on how to fix that.
