Interested in developing top quality web applications? If you think that most software out there is quite frustrating to use and want to change that by creating top quality software with amazing user experience, then Viima is the right place for you.

  • Location: Espoo, Finland
  • Starting date: As soon as possible, preferably by August
  • Type: Permanent, Full-time (28h/week also possible)

Viima is a SaaS tool 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 unleash the unrealized potential in their stakeholders by transforming the way they turn ideas into new innovations quickly and easily. Our current happy customers, such as United Nations, If, Lassila & Tikanoja, and Telia are just a tip of the iceberg

We are now looking for a talented software engineer to strengthen our dynamic product development team to work closely with our customers in building web applications that people love to use – and we love to develop. This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic software engineer who is passionate about delivering top quality web software.

We take pride in building supreme usability, advanced and forward-looking software architectures and code that solves the customer’s daily needs. We’re always looking for ways to do things better and grow our expertise, both personally and as a team. Working in our agile development team, you are certain to see how your output contributes to the product and eventually how it is perceived by customers. 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. We offer a very informal and relaxed atmosphere where you don’t have to worry about joking, or just speaking up. We also like to do extracurricular activities together, such as TV show and book clubs, team sports, or the occasional visit to the gym and sauna at our office.

Job description

Your job would be to further develop modern and easy-to-use web software with enterprise-grade quality requirements, mostly in the form of full-stack work on new features with your output having an instant impact on the product. You would take part in delivering strategically important and technologically exciting things to the market. You will have the possibility to take great responsibility in developing the product.

The position can be tailored to match your experience and expertise, as well as your areas of interest but we’re looking for full-stack skills and the ability to take on the project quickly. We use technologies such as Python, Django, jQuery, Marionette.js and Backbone.js. You should have some experience with modern web development technologies and frameworks. Experience with the particular technologies we use is considered a plus but is not a requirement for a talented and enthusiastic candidate.

We require you to:

  • Have some experience in full-stack web development (work experience or own projects)
  • Be a talented problem solver
  • Be passionate about creating top quality applications with a superb UX
  • Be equipped with a great work ethic and morale
  • Be a true team player
  • Be fully proficient in English and/or Finnish

We can offer you:

  • The chance to take responsibility for designing and implementing entire features
  • The ability to see your work in production in days or even hours
  • Mentoring to help you become a web development superstar
  • New office right next to Otaniemi with excellent gym and sauna facilities
  • A fun and relaxed atmosphere at the office
  • Flexible working hours
  • Competitive salary and option plans
  • An all-engineer founding team with love for all things technology

We believe that the best people aren’t necessarily the ones with the most experience but those with the most burning desire to always learn more and get better at what they do. If you’re a talented problem solver with a passion for making a real impact with your work, we’d love to see you join us!
