Who are we?

Viima is a SaaS platform for companies to engage their employees, customers, or other stakeholders in transparent and collaborative development of ideas. Our goal is to help companies all around the world make more innovation happen by democratizing the tools and knowledge needed to do that and are very proud to be the best innovation management cloud solution according to customer ratings.

Viima has the largest global customer base in our sector, with thousands of organizations having signed up to our service within the past 12 months alone. Our average annual growth in paying customers has been 121%. We have a wide variety of amazing customers from different industries and markets all working on the forefront of innovation and our current customers, such as If Insurance, L'Oréal, United Nations, and Bureau Veritas are just a tip of the iceberg!

Viima has been funded by our own revenue since the company’s inception in 2013. We are focused on quick growth, but also doing business in a financially responsible manner. We are a bootstrapped, yet rapidly growing company with a team of 10. We care about doing our share to make the world a better place and an example of this is that we are net carbon negative for the lifetime of the company.

At Viima, we take pride in the craftsmanship and quality of everything we do. We’re always looking for ways to do things better and grow our expertise, both personally and as a team. However, at the same time, we know that there’s more to life than work and do believe that work is supposed to be fun.


Job description

We are now looking for a full stack web developer / lead engineer to join our product development team. You will continue to develop our software further and make sure we live up to our vision of an easy-to-use, yet intelligent solution for turning ideas into innovations.

At Viima we take a holistic approach for implementing features. That means that you will get to take responsibility for first identifying the customer need and then implementing the best technical solution for that while taking into consideration the aspects of architecture, UX & design, security, performance, testing and deployment to our cloud infrastructure. We take pride in building supreme usability, advanced and forward-looking software architectures and code that truly solves the customer’s daily needs.

Working in our agile development team with modern technologies, you are certain to see how your output contributes to our product and eventually how it is perceived by our customers. We are able to tailor the role to match your experience and expertise, as well as your areas of interest but we’re ideally looking for a full stack web developer. 

We use technologies such as Python, Django, jQuery, Backbone.js and AWS and experience of these technologies is appreciated but not required. Our all-engineering founding team as well as the team of developers appreciates the ability to work independently yet also as part of a team.


We look for:
 

  • Passion for creating top quality applications with a superb UX
  • Experience in web development
  • Great work ethic and morale
  • A true team player
  • Excellent skills in English
  • Someone who takes pride in the quality of his/her work and the value he/she delivers


We can offer you:
 

  • An experienced all-engineer founding team with love for all things technology
  • A modern tech stack, and a software that is rated as the best in the industry by customers with little technical debt
  • The chance to take responsibility for designing and implementing entire features
  • The ability to see your work in production (around the world) in days or even hours
  • A fun and relaxed atmosphere at the office (if you do want to come in)
  • Flexibility to shape your role and the way you work
  • A modern office in Keilaniemi with a gym, sauna, and a great view of the sea - but of course in these special times, you can also work fully remotely
  • Competitive salary and option plans
  • A team that enjoys doing extracurricular activities together, such as TV show and book clubs, team sports, yoga, or the occasional visit to the gym and sauna at our office

We believe that the best people aren’t necessarily the ones with the most experience but the most burning desire to always learn more and get better at what they do. If you have a passion for making a real impact with your work, we’d like you to join us on our journey to help companies all over the world become more innovative!
