We are looking for Architects of the Digital World with versatile experience to build a sustainable digital future with us.
As an architect, you work in different phases of our customers’ development projects. Your role is to plan and guide digital change and business development. In your role, you represent the customer and act as an interpreter between the customer’s operations and the developer teams. It’s important to us that the job should look like you, so that your skills and personality reach their full potential, while also leaving room for development.
As an architect, you can work in customer projects, e.g. in the following roles:
As an enterprise architect, planning and directing the client’s extensive development entities and supporting the transformation of the client’s development activities into an agile one
As a business analyst, product owner or specifier, analyzing the client’s business development requirements and translating them into technology requirements
As a solution architect or integration architect, helping in the selection of solutions for different application areas and supporting the software development process
As an information architect, developing our customers’ information architecture holistically, from data strategies to data warehouse solutions
As a cloud architect, building functional and secure cloud environments
What we offer
As an employer and community, we promise to look after you because healthy employees are our greatest asset and the core of our business. Our praised corporate culture is based on a flat organization model that enables self-direction and supports individuality. Our reputation for providing high-quality services to our customers is entirely thanks to our top experts, and we take our modern operating culture with us to customer projects, as well. Our diverse team of experts is united by a pioneering spirit and a desire to work in a company whose existence has a greater purpose than just making a profit – striving for a more humane, sustainable, and ethical digital world.
The development of professional expertise is important to us, and you can pick what you find the most interesting from weekly tech presentations, guild activities, or course training. The Gofore community also extends beyond work. Various activities, such as board games, cycling, climbing, and video games are some of the things we do during get-togethers combined with sauna, various events, and family days. To find the right balance between work and free time, you can define your flexible working hours, work remotely, and choose the tools that you need. These and many other benefits await you at Gofore!
What we expect from you
The most important thing is the ability to identify the customer’s development needs and carry out various change projects, utilizing not only traditional architecture and requirements definition methods, but also lean and design thinking. In addition to this, it is great if you have, for example, project management and IT procurement expertise or business systems design expertise. Fluency in Finnish is needed due to the nature of our customer projects.
Above all, we value the desire to develop and share our know-how with others. We also value the can-do attitude and a genuine understanding of the importance of digitalization and its effects on the operations of organizations. We want a person in our group for whom all this is as important as it is for us.
For us it is important that Goforeans receive reasonable total compensation for their work. The compensation is the outcome of, not only experience and skills, but also active work for our two values: being a good workplace for everyone and considering customer perspective in everything we do. The feedback that you receive, your utilisation rate (we are consultants, after all!) and your own professional development are central in the salary discussions with your People Leader (i.e. supervisor).
We have different salary models, and in addition to the monthly salary, we have separate bonuses linked with the company’s success. Bonuses can be related to, for example, recruitment, sales or actions advancing Gofore’s employer brand.
If you have any questions about the roles, please contact Juha Siltanen (Head Of Business, Architecture Services) either by phone 0405813901 or by e-mail email@example.com.
Please note that the task may require a security clearance.
