What we offer you
Our agile and rather small Jyväskylä office is large in spirit. As part of our 50-person team, you contribute to meaningful customer projects working either remotely or in our new, modern facilities in the city centre. Our flat organisational model creates an independent and transparent work culture. Our diverse team of experts is united by a pioneering spirit and a desire to work in a company that does more than just make a profit – our aim is to create a more humane, sustainable and ethical digital world.
As an employer and community, we promise to take care of you, as staff wellbeing is at the heart of our company and our employees are our most important resource. This means real opportunities to influence your own work, the freedom to shape your own unique career path, support and encouragement to develop your skills, and good work-life balance.
Our reputation for providing quality services to our customers is all down to our skilled top experts. Professional and skilled colleagues work alongside you every day, sharing their expertise and developing ideas together.
The local workplace community is active, organising tasting evenings, saunas, excursions, family days, sports, board games and more. Our new premises are located in the centre of Jyväskylä. You can reserve our meeting space for up to 100 people for private events or hangouts with colleagues.
If your life situation changes, it is possible to move to other Gofore offices in Finland or abroad.
What we expect from you
As a Software Architect, you are actively involved in an agile development team, hands on. Full stack skills and knowledge of modern technologies are a prerequisite for success in the role, although we do not expect you to solve the most challenging, in-depth technical problems.
In addition to development work, you are holistically involved in the customer relationship or project throughout its lifecycle and work closely with the customer to convert their business plan into a technical roadmap. You support both the team and the customer’s Product Owner in architectural work and develop sustainable, long-term solutions. Our Software Architects work for example on transport applications and large-scale international projects.
A wide-ranging expert in software development, you have extensive experience, coupled with the desire and ability to learn to understand a customer’s business and industry. You have technical expertise and vision, are a people-oriented communicator and negotiator, and communicate fluently with both the client and the implementation team. We value diverse experience, but also want to create spaces for growth in both new technologies and industries. With us, you can truly influence your own career path and shape your own role. Goforeans thrive on sharing our know-how, and you can find your own way of doing this, such as mentoring younger developers or organising internal information sessions.
Above all, we hope you want to develop and share your own skills and have enthusiasm to get involved hands on and a genuine understanding of the importance and impact of digitalisation. If all of this is as important to you as it is to us, we want you to join our crew.
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.
