What we expect from you
You like to work in teams and with the customer’s product owner. A customer-oriented approach and communicating with non-technical people are also key parts of your job description. The scrum and its routines is a familiar way of working for you, and you like to share what you know in your team.
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.
"My name is Henri Ihalainen and I work at Gofore as a full stack developer. My job includes design and implementation of backend services as well as frontend development. Also, I’m doing DevOps work in my projects, e.g. building AWS infrastructure and CI pipelines. I appreciate that I can have an influence on projects and roles I’ll work in. Typically, my role in a project is a software developer with main focus on designing and coding the system. In some projects I have worked as a scrum master and more in the customer interface. At work, It’s important to me that I get things done and that the outcome of my work really matters. I like to work with people and that’s what my job is in many ways. Also, learning new things and improving my skills is very important to me. Learning new is a quite big part of my work. Every project is a new adventure and always comes with new stuff to learn and I feel that Gofore supports me well in this. Currently, my focus is in functional programming and software architecture. I’m able to spend some of my working time for studying and I can always ask help or discuss new ideas with my colleagues. I think working at Gofore is very flexible. I’ve been doing shortened working week twice and I was half a year at home taking care for a child. All of this has always been regarded positively and I have received support from the employer as well as the co-workers."
