We are looking for a software architect to join our growing team of experts for various public and private sector projects. There is plenty of choice in the projects and the technologies used include Java, Node.js, Typescript, React, React Native, Vue.js, Angular, C#, .NET, Python, AWS, and Azure. The important thing is that we find exactly the project that interests you!

You can jump into a development project, for example, in the healthcare, early childhood education, or transport industry – there are truly meaningful public and private sector projects that affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Our customer projects are usually long-term, and you get to focus on one project at a time. Come build and develop meaningful digital services with us.

What we offer

As an employer and community, we promise to look after you because healthy employees are our greatest asset and the core of our business. Our praised corporate culture is based on a flat organization model that enables self-direction 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, as well. Our diverse team of experts is united by a pioneering spirit and a desire to work in a company whose existence has a greater purpose than just making a profit – striving for a more humane, sustainable, and ethical digital world.

The development of professional expertise is important to us, and you can pick what you find the most interesting from weekly tech presentations, guild activities, or course 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. 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

As a software architect, you work as part of an agile development team and also participate hands-on in the development of the project. You have years of experience in the software industry and are fluent in numerous technologies and programming languages.

As a software architect, you get to plan and lead nationally significant software projects, in which previous coaching and sparring experience is useful in this role. In addition to development work, you are comprehensively involved with the customer or in the project throughout its life cycle and work closely with the customer in converting the business plan into a technical roadmap. You support both the team and the customer’s product owner in the architectural work while you develop long-term sustainable solutions. A personal security clearance can be made for the person selected for the position.

We value versatile experience, but at the same time, we want to offer opportunities for growth both in terms of new technologies and industries. With us, you can truly influence your own career path and what your role will become. At the core of being a Goforean is also sharing your own expertise, and you can act as a mentor to younger developers.

Our official language is English, but in many of our customer projects the working language is Finnish. Finnish language skills are not mandatory to us, but they help you find work in our varied customer projects. Therefore Finnish language skills are considered an advantage in our recruitment process.

Salary development

For us it is important that Goforeans receive reasonable total compensation for their work. The compensation is the outcome of, not only experience and skills, but also active work for our two values: being a good workplace for everyone and considering customer perspective in everything we do The feedback that you receive, your utilisation rate (we are consultants, after all!) and your own professional development are central in the salary discussions with your People Leader (i.e. supervisor).

We have different salary models, and in addition to the monthly salary, we have separate bonuses linked with the company’s success. Bonuses can be related to, for example, recruitment, sales or actions advancing Gofore’s employer brand.

Freelancing? Oh yes!

The form of employment no longer defines the career you can create. You can offer your expertise for our open positions also as a freelancer. Just select ‘Freelancer’ in the below application form and we’ll connect you with the right people.

We recognise and understand neurodiversity, and are willing to adapt our recruitment process based on your needs.
