Customer projects and technologies
We work, for example, not only in smart industry – i.e. embedded systems – and the transport industry, but also in the development and reform projects of healthcare and early childhood education. There are truly meaningful public and private sector projects that affect the lives of hundreds of thousands people.
More important than individual knowledge of a programming language is the interest and ability to take over new technology. It is also important to us that we find exactly the project that interests you! Our customer projects are usually long-term and you usually get to focus on one project at a time. Do you want to know more about what kind of customer projects we do? Read more: https://gofore.com/en/cases/. See also: Case Aimo Park: Rethink parking (https://gofore.com/en/cases/aimo-park/).
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.
Are your strongest skills backend and/or fullstack?
We hope that you already have over five years experience in working with modern technologies. You are proud of the code you have created that is tested and working. We look to your advantage if you have an interest in both DevOps and cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, GCP). Our projects use, for example, the following technologies:
- .NET, Java, Spring Boot, Python, Django, Node.js, Express
- SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, DynamoDB
- Azure, AWS, Serverless Framework
Are you interested in physical devices and embedded software?
We hope that you master either core embedded technologies (C/C++ programming, hardware interfaces, and real-time operating systems) or Qt/QML development or embedded Linux configuration. You have experience in either software architecture design, programming or testing of embedded systems. It is a big plus if you are familiar with unit and integration testing. You are in your home surrounded by technical gadgets.
We hope that you already have several years of experience in software development and that you master modern technologies and methods. You may have experience in, for example, cloud services or a desire to develop in that field.
You are proud of the code you have created that is tested and working. You are used to working as part of a self-directed team and in cooperation with the customer’s product owner. Customer orientation and communication with non-technical people are also an integral part of your job description. A personal security clearance can be made for the person selected for the position.
It is important to us that you want to develop professionally. With us, you choose your career path by developing your skills in the areas that you like and that you need to grow as a professional. You have the opportunity to participate in various external trainings, as well as to complete certifications that support business and your skills (for example, AWS, Azure, Certified Scrum Master, SAFe, Certified in Cybersecurity℠). With us, you can develop into, for example, a versatile technical expert, a Scrum Master, or focus on deepening your expertise in the technologies of your choice.
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.
