The Position

If you live for coding but also care for design, and love to lead others, we've got a great job for you!

You'll be leading a team of Senior Developers and Designers, but will also be working hands-on in client projects. Projects are done together with digital experts such as Data Analysts and Data-Driven Marketing Specialists in cross-competence teams building digital services, covering all aspects of digital customer experience. 

You will also be responsible for developing our offering according to our Digital Growth Engine strategy, where developing digital services is one of our 3 main focus areas.

  • We prefer microservices in our daily work, so APIs are your friends.
  • You know what Git, Javascript and Node.js are.
  • You have used frontend libraries or frameworks like React and might have worked with cloud services. Maybe you want to write TypeScript instead of vanilla JS. 
  • You know your cloud-based backend services such as AWS or Google Cloud. You are not tied to a specific stack, but instead use the best tools for the projects at hand. 
  • You’ve also worked with e-commerce platforms and know how they are integrated to a modern frontend.
  • Preferably, you have experience as a manager and/or a leading developer, so that you feel comfortable leading others.
  • You are fluent in English, Finnish is a bonus.  


We look forward to hearing from you!
