Interested in developing top quality web applications? If you think that most software out there is too crappy to use and want to change that through eye watering user experience, then Viima is the right place for you. We are now looking for a software engineer to strengthen our dynamic product development team to build web applications that people love to use and we love to develop.

This is a flexible position so we can offer you either a full-time job or a student-friendly flexible part-time job with the possibility to work full-time during the summer.

  • Location: Espoo, Finland
  • Starting date: Negotiable
  • 20+ h/week


Who are we?

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 employees or other stakeholders by transforming the way they turn ideas into new innovations quickly and easily. Our current happy customers, such as United Nations, If, Varma, Lassila & Tikanoja, and HUS are just a tip of the iceberg.

We are a bootstrapped, yet rapidly growing young company with a team of seven and are now looking to strengthen the team to further boost our growth and internalization. This year, we’ll at least quintuple our revenue from last year.

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. 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

We’re now looking for a software engineer to strengthen our product development team. Your job would be to help develop our software further to take us closer to our vision of an easy-to-use, yet intelligent solution for turning ideas into innovations. We take pride in building supreme usability, advanced and forward looking software architectures and code that solves the customer’s daily need. Working in our agile development team, you are certain to see how your output contributes to our product and eventually how it is perceived by our customers. We’ll help you along the way and make sure you have the correct learning curve in your tasks.

The position can be tailored to match your experience and expertise, as well as your areas of interest but we’re ideally looking for full-stack web developers. We use technologies such as Python, Django, jQuery and Marionette + Backbone.js, but we don’t require you to have previous experience with these specific technologies. You should, however, understand the basics of how the web works and have some previous experience in doing web development with some framework. Our experienced team is prepared to mentor you and help you get going.


We require you to:

  • Be eager and willing to learn
  • 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
  • Have some experience in web development
  • 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 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!
