Backend Developer (Java)
Backend Developer (Java), Oulu
Would you like to develop solutions that affect the everyday lives of millions of people or services that you are likely to use in your daily life? We at OP are actively taking digitalization in the banking sector to the next level. This way, we will be able to provide our customers top-quality banking services also in the future. This is where we need your help.
What’s the role like?
As said, to continue to offer the highest quality banking services to our more than four million customers also in the future, we are now looking for a Backend Developer to join our developer community in Oulu.
The common task of your team is to design, develop and implement technical solutions and bring them to the bank customer for use in high quality. Most of our solutions are Java-based, in addition to which API’s, integrations and database expertise is emphasized in this task. In terms of architecture, this is a multifaceted area of development, so there is certainly an interesting challenge for even the most experienced professional. Although the emphasize in this role is on backend, we don’t mind if you read and write frontend code or are interested to broaden your scope on that side as well.
At OP, we are inspired by Agile teamwork and working together. Our teams consist of experienced professionals in requirements specification, programming, testing and product ownership who are always ready to share their own know-how. To fulfill our customer promise, the scalability and reliability of the services are a very important part in the development, which is why we expect you to be actively involved in developing and deploying DevOps practices to support our development and technical agility.
We believe that experienced Backend Developer with couple of years of experience especially from Java development and API’s would offer a great fit for the role. Core elements that we value a lot are following:
• Strong experience and independent knowledge of backend development, integrations, REST API’s and databases
• Technology expertise (especially Java + Springboot)
• Knowledge of DevOps tools (e.g. Jenkins, Git, Maven) and DevOps practices
• Experience of working in an agile development team
• Understanding of cloud service development (AWS)
• Working proficiency in English, Finnish is a plus
We value previous technical experience a lot, but we also value mindset that helps you to get excited about new challenges, facing them and finding solutions to them. Teamwork is also valued a lot, so we wish to find a person who wants to give his/her best to make the team accomplish its targets.
What is the catch, then?
It wouldn’t be fair if we had nothing to offer you. We have a wide range of staff benefits including a personnel fund and special terms for employee banking, insurance, and loan services. We offer comprehensive occupational health care, extensive medical treatment expenses insurance and a full-time group accident insurance policy. We invest in wellbeing at work by encouraging a good work-life balance, providing flexibility in your daily life, and offering lunch, sport and cultural benefits.
We also encourage and help you to further develop yourself as a technical professional. We have the so called “70/20/10 rule” in use, which means you will use 70% of your time for your daily tasks, 20% to develop the way you do those tasks, and the last 10% is reserved for you to learn and try new things. You will also have our OP Software Academy at your disposal in case you are interested in learning new technologies or methodologies, or why not in honing your skills in your current stack.
Did we spark your interest?
Great, we can’t wait to hear from you! The application period is open until 9.1.2022, so now it is your time to shine! Please note that we will be on Christmas break between 23.12.-9.1. and we will not be going through the applications between this time range.
