What we expect from you

As a software development expert, you are interested in modern technologies and won’t be shy about getting your hands dirty in source code. You always want to learn something new and are always prepared to help your colleagues and customers.

The JVM platform and databases are familiar to you from previous projects, and you can design high-quality interfaces. You are interested in building a good build pipeline and in launching cloud services. You may also have learned about functional programming.

Gofore is an international workplace, and we welcome people from different backgrounds. Please note that as some of our customers work in Finnish, professional working proficiency in Finnish is a big advantage. Some projects require a security clearance check by the Finnish Security Intelligence Service. In case you will work in such a project, this check is required. It is always done with the applicant’s consent.


""Hi, I'm Anna Ruokonen and I work at Gofore as a software designer. I've been involved for almost three years with industrial Internet application, an IoT platform, for a paper mill and hydroelectric plant context. The platform focuses on data collection, and various applications are developed on top of it for monitoring, analytics and data visualisation purposes. The system adheres to a microservice architecture. At the beginning of the project, I was focusing on implementing the presentation layer middleware, including a data model and REST API. The tools I was using were mainly Node.js and MongoDB. Later the focus shifted to microservices and presentation layer integration. I have also become familiar with database migrations and client-end Angular. A lot has taken place during the project's life cycle. The high points have included transfer to a Docker based publication, replacing Jenkins with GitLab CI/CD, transfer to AWS and most recently, replacing our own database with a MongoDB Atlas cluster. Currently I'm working in the modularisation team, the purpose of which is to enable application development and publication independent of each other, and to improve the scalability of the presentation layer. The best thing about Gofore and this project is that I have been able to decide the direction of my work and my expertise. I have been able to work in various roles within the project according to my interest. I have also been able to complete the AWS Solutions Architect and Scrum Master certificates while working. At Gofore, you can develop your own competences not only in projects and by studying but also by taking part in guild activities and by making use of coaching services.""
