What we expect from you
You may be interested in software development or already have experience in it. Experience in modern web frameworks and libraries and functional and reactive programming are considered an asset. Use of cloud services and implementation of high-quality web interfaces by various means may also be close to your heart.
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.
"I'm Panu Klemola and I work at Gofore on Finnish Institute of Occupational Health projects. In practice, my days are spent working with Vue.js and the project's DevOps side. Work is done with the Scrum methodology in two-week sprints. What we do varies considerably; sometimes it's pure user interface programming, while the next sprint may focus more on architecture and AWS automation. Every day is different and it never becomes boring. The technologies we currently use in the project include Vue.js, Terraform, Node.js and a number of AWS services. However, it is less important for a front end developer to know about the latest buzzword technologies but to have an ability and keen interest to always learn something new. This is why Gofore encourages learning in many ways, such as through its guild activities. Employees can establish or join guilds that help them develop, to learn new things and reinforce what they already know. Gofore offers its employees guild funding, and time spent on guild activities is considered working hours (you can use 6% of your working hours on self-development). This gives all Gofore employees a chance to develop in their career in a direction they see fit.""
