Are you interested in developing software that makes a difference in the lives of millions of other people? Are you a seasoned professional with experience in Java-based programming languages? Join us at OP Group in developing the Finnish mortgage market as a Backend Developer! We have been one of the trailblazers in Europe by creating a fully automated credit decision and pricing software.
Backend Developer, Credit Engine
We are currently looking for a new Backend Developer to bolster our Credit Engine team and join us in developing our algorithm-based credit decision software. In this role you will be a very important part of our team by making sure the backend side of our software works as intended. You will also be creating new functionalities and work closely, sometimes directly yourself, with the frontend. In our team, we love to see our product work and make a difference in the life of millions of people.
What do you need to succeed in this role?
You should have several years of experience in software development in Java Virtual Machine (e.g. Java, Scala, Clojure etc.). Experience in Kotlin is a plus. In this role, you will also get the chance to use your skills in testing (e.g. Robot Framework) as well as creating and documenting REST APIs. You should also have working proficiency in Finnish. Experience in Spring/Spring Boot, Maven, Git and UNIX-tools is beneficial.
We warmly welcome diverse software development backgrounds and having an agile DevOps mindset. If you feel like you would like to embark on new challenges with other experienced software development specialists and work in a business-critical area, this might be a well-suited position for you. At OP, we want to foster a culture of taking initiative, proactivity, and maintaining a positive attitude also when something unexpected occurs – we hope that you find these ideas as fascinating as we do!
We are waiting for you to join our team packed with other professionals. The composition of our team allows you to have a very wide vision of the whole lifecycle of the product, and the possibility to dive into the world of AI, mathematics, or data.
To help counterbalance work where you are expected to take a lot of responsibility, we seek to ensure employee wellbeing and to enable forward-looking work arrangements. We offer a stable working environment where you can contribute to our core values: responsibility, people first and succeeding together.
You will enjoy 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 and opportunities for affordable holidays in OP timeshares.
