What we expect from you
As a software architect, you will have years of experience in the software industry and you are comfortable with many technologies and programming languages. You like to take responsibility and are able to help both customers and your colleagues to improve their performance. We value in particular your vision, good interaction skills, and team working and problem-solving skills. As a software architect, you will have a chance to design and manage nationally significant software projects, meaning that previous coaching and sparring experiences will come in useful.
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 Pasi Kallioniemi and I work as a software architect at Gofore. My current customer is the Finnish National Agency for Education, which is responsible for the development of Finnish education and the related systems. One of the key elements is the Studyinfo service which, among other things, enables learners' digital application processes. I'm in charge of supporting the architecture of the Finnish National Agency for Education's services. The service consists of more than 100 application models that are based on microservice architecture. The modern infrastructure supports the operation well. The work consists of many areas, ranging from sparring the customer's main architects, making work amount and technology estimates, carrying out integrations, supporting the teams and developing applications and infrastructure. Targets that have been important to me have also included modernisation of the architecture, such as simplifying the solutions, revamping the infrastructure, re-using components wherever possible, and reducing data duplication. It is exactly this kind of technical hands-on work combined with a comprehensive job description that has provided interesting work for myself for many years, and it's exactly what I was looking for when I joined Gofore. The reason why I originally applied for a job at Gofore was that I found Gofore consultants to be nicely down-to-earth, reliable and highly competent.""
