What we offer

As an employer and community, we promise to look after you, because healthy employees are the core of our business and our greatest asset. Our praised corporate culture is based on a flat organisation model that enables self-direction and an open operating culture 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, too.

Development of professional expertise is important to us, and you can pick what you find the most interesting from weekly presentations, guild activities or 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. In order 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

You are interested in modern front end technologies and won’t be shy about using them. You love elegant code that is easy to maintain and develop further.For many, JavaScript mostly reminds them of pop-ups and alerts – but you think of SPA. You want to make web applications that are intuitive and easy to use – on all devices. You are able to apply the principles of good software design also in terms of style and markup.

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.

"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."
