“You ONLY do mobile development, right?”
Like hell we do! Yes, it’s what we started with, but we didn’t stop there. In 2014, our developers became fascinated with cloud technologies, and that was it. We were hooked! Demand for our backend and cloud expertise has been increasing continuously, and that’s why we’re looking for Backend Developers to join our crew!
We have recently been building cloud backends and architectures for financial institutions, the healthcare sector, retail and logistics. Such as Posti’s cloud-native, multichannel Payment Gateway solution that will handle all e-commerce payments within Posti. Real, heavy, hands-on programming is wearing out our keyboards as our daily work consists of designing and building infrastructures, microservices and scalable backends. Though the main focus is on development, we also consult our customers on the best technology choices to help build sustainable solutions.
“WHAT ABOUT MY TOOLBOX”, you ask?
Lately, we have been using Node.js, and Python and its frameworks to bring our solutions to life, building them on top of AWS or GCP. This allows us to spend most of our time on actual development, as server setup and maintenance don’t steal the thunder.
Golang tickles our fancy and it’s something we aim to have more projects with in the future. We also recognize huge potential in modern Java, so if that’s your forte, let us know about it!
If you have been working with cloud platforms for a while, you probably have a deep understanding of, for example, network design, serverless design patterns, container orchestration (Kubernetes, Docker), cloud-native development, and architecture designs.
WHAT YOUR FUTURE COLLEAGUES APPRECIATE
Communication skills - the ability to discuss and listen, give and receive feedback. Curiosity and the capacity to learn. Willingness to share your knowledge. These qualities not only make you a good colleague but also help with understanding the needs of our customers. In addition to developing, you could be e.g. helping out our sales team to define projects, mentoring your teammates or sharing your expertise at our company guilds and in meetups. You know agile methodologies and have good English language skills.
BENEFITS AND ALL THAT JAZZ

In addition, we offer our low-hierarchy culture; flexible working hours; opportunities to try, fail and succeed; as well as a chance for you to concentrate on your actual work. Because that’s what you would come here to do, right?
