Senior Software Engineer

Softlandia is looking for a talented full-stack software engineer to join our growing team.

Softlandia is a software consulting company with a product development twist. Our headquarters are located in Tampere, Finland. We serve primarily high-growth technology companies and our target is to grow internationally. Softlandia is the place for open-minded, international and ambitious people. As a member of our team, you'll have the opportunity to work on various projects, ranging from web/cloud and IoT applications to data analysis and AI.

Our current team members have really delivered in the past. Remarkable projects, stories and achievements. We would be honored to help you to become a true tech star as well. As part of our team, you will become what your potential is. If you are already an individual with a track record, this is the place where it’s appreciated.

While most Softlandians work as consultants in customer projects, our strategy is also to have our own product ventures and invest in them continuously. This means that at Softlandia you can participate in our internal greenfield product development from time to time as well. In the future, this will open multiple new opportunities considering career development.

Your role

In this role, you'll be responsible for designing and implementing new features, as well as maintaining and improving existing ones. You are also expected to collaborate with an international cross-functional team that includes other engineers, testers, and specific test domain experts.

What do we expect from you?

We are seeking a candidate who is able to work independently and is self-motivated: a curious mind, growth mindset and capability to deliver are some of the key elements that we value. 5 or more years of professional experience in software development and a Bachelor's or Master's degree in computer science or a similar field are strongly preferred. Fluent spoken and written English is required. Speaking or writing Finnish is not mandatory but is beneficial.

You should have a solid understanding of modern software development and fluent programming skills in Python and TypeScript, as well as proficiency in the following technologies:

  • Backend

    • FastAPI, or some other web framework

    • SQL and NoSQL databases

    • Experience in designing and creating REST APIs, WebSocket experience is a plus

    • Python ecosystem experience in general

  • Frontend

    • React and related technologies such as Redux Toolkit and Webpack

    • Browser-side JavaScript / TypeScript and CSS/HTML

  • Setting up CI/CD pipelines and scripts

  • Version control with Git

  • Some cloud knowledge at least on one of the major platforms: AWS, Azure or GCP

You can be focused on the backend or frontend, but it is important that you can deliver new features on both sides of the stack. We are happy to see experience from other languages and technologies as well. Previous experience in computer vision, imaging, industrial cameras and integrating Python with hardware is considered a plus.

What we offer

We are still a small company, but we offer a benefits package and salary that are on par with other software consultancies. This includes the option to work remotely, with some occasional visits at Tampere for team events and customer meetings. In case you prefer working from an office and are located in the Helsinki area, we are also opening an office there in 2023.

Some of our benefits: 

  • Flexible working hours and locations

  • Extensive, insurance-based healthcare

  • Phone, subscription, home internet for remote working

  • Annual budget for personal tools, that can be freely used

A job can be and should be very meaningful to an individual. But at the same time, we all work to get a living. All Softlandia founders have small kids, and we all have set time aside for our parental leaves and taking care of our children when they have been ill. 

You yourself might want to build a house, work from abroad or from your holiday home, or study for a new certificate. This is life. We think the company should plan projects and responsibilities so that they fit together with both the dreams and demands of the life of an individual. Read more about our values here:
