Frontend Developer

Gofore is growing fast and we are looking for front-end developers to join our team in Helsinki and Tampere. Due to our strong presence in the private and public sector in Finland and globally, you will be working at large projects which have a direct and positive impact on the daily lives of millions of people.

Working at Gofore

“My name is Roope Hakulinen and I work as a lead developer at Gofore in a large national project by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. In addition to this I train people on the use of Angular with Typescript as well as back end development with Node.js. My role and responsibilities vary, but majority of my time goes into architectural design and software development.

Front end technologies are rapidly developing and changing in popularity unlike any other area in software development. New technologies and libraries pop up frequently, so it’s important for software developers to keep developing their skills and knowledge to keep up with trends.

One of my favourite things in working at Gofore is everyone being urged to develop their skills regularly and professional self-development is encouraged by the company. In fact, we can use 6% of our annual working time for professional development, whether that means getting certified, taking part in in-house training sessions, attending conferences or completing an online course to learn a new technology.”

What we look for

You are passionate about modern front-end technologies and aren’t afraid to use them. You love elegant code that’s easy to maintain and develop. Some might think JavaScript is only about popups and alerts, but you know the meaning and importance of PWA and SPA. You want to create web applications which are intuitive and easy-to-use  -no matter the device. You respect and appreciate the principles of software development.

You might also be interested in software design/architecture or have some experience on it already. Being familiar with databases, Java and functional programming (Scala, Clojure) is a plus. Cloud services and creating high quality web interfaces with different tools might also spur your interest.
