Full stack developer

Gofore is growing fast and we are looking for full stack developers to join our team in Helsinki, Tampere and Jyväskylä. Due to our strong presence in the private and public sector in Finland and globally, you will be working at large projects which have a direct and positive impact on the daily lives of millions of people.

Working at Gofore

“My name is Marko Wallin and I work as a full stack developer in Finnish Population Registry’s project of National Architecture of Digital Services which includes the Suomi.fi portal to all the public services in Finland. Being part of agile Scrum team I spend my working days at customer’s premises using modern programming technologies, surrounded by talented and passionate co-workers. We are also embracing the DevOps way of software engineering culture and different cloud services.

Software development is a fast paced and ever changing industry and as trends in front-end development change often also backend development has interesting new things happening. I have been given the opportunity to work on microservices architecture using React, Node.js and Kotlin. It’s good for a software developer to stay informed of latest technologies and to be motivated to learn new things. Therefore personal development is one of my favourite aspects in this job.

One of the great things at Gofore is that days aren’t only about work, as on breaks we often play table football which keeps us moving. Gofore supports our professional self development, so I have used it for developing a Highkara news reader for iOS amongst other things. Our well-being is also looked after with fun events and support for communality through different afterwork activities and excursions. In-house trainings and lightning talks are also popular and best of all they are often organized and taught by our co-workers. I’m also part of company sponsored bike club and our yearly bike trips are legendary.”

What we look for

You can be more experienced in back end development, but you are motivated to learn about the latest technologies in front end development also. You might have experience in Java technologies and other JVM languages and modern Javascript frameworks like React and Angular are familiar to you or you have already worked with them professionally or in your free time. We also appreciate interest in DevOps and knowledge in Docker and different cloud services like AWS and Azure.

You prefer working in teams with different people, but are not afraid to work alone if required. In our projects we work closely with the product owners from the client’s side, so being customer service oriented is relevant when communicating with non-technical people. Scrum and other agile methodologies are familiar to you and you might be interested in the role of Scrum Master also.
