Would you like to be part of making sure that our customers can manage and handle their financial decisions as smoothly as possible in a modern technological environment? Do you want to be involved in building an idea into a concrete product while working in a team where the responsibility is genuinely shared? If yes, we might need your help.
We are now looking for a developer to join our Transaction banking tribe in Helsinki to develop and maintain our services and solutions for our corporate and personal customers. As a team of nine people, we have the end-to-end responsibility of two products: OP Vendorweb (OP Myyjäliikepalvelu) and OP Finance self-service portal (OP Rahoituksen verkkopalvelu).
The common task of your team is to design, develop and implement technical solutions and bring them to the use of our end customers in high quality. In addition to maintenance, you’ll get to focus on developing completely new features. For example, lately, the team has been especially focusing on building up our new AWS-based OP Finance solution at rahoitus.op.fi. Feel free to go and have a look!
As a Full Stack developer, you’ll focus both on frontend and backend development of the OP transaction bank vendor and end-customer solutions, API design and implementation as well as designing technical solutions. As developers, we work closely with the business itself and close the customer interface. This gives us a great chance to see the whole life cycle of the product from innovative ideas to design, testing and production while gaining a concrete understanding of our end-customer needs. We are an autonomous team where responsibility is genuinely shared. You can find listed a bunch of words that are important to us as a team: co-operation within the team, OP business developers and stakeholders, DevOps and respect for others.
What we hope from you
You should have previous experience in full stack software development. Your strong analytical skills enable you to solve problems independently but also together with your team. You are fluent in English and being able to communicate in Finnish is a big plus.
To thrive in this kind of environment, we believe you should own (more or less) the following technical skills:
• strong, hands on experience of backend Java (Spring) development
• knowledge of relational (e.g. DB2) and NoSQL databases (e.g. DynamoDB)
• knowledge of AWS environment with tools such as CDK, CloudFormation, Docker
• automated regression testing
At OP, we are inspired by Agile teamwork and working together, so we hope that you will be enthusiastic and actively involved in developing and deploying DevOps practices to support your team’s work to improve technical agility.
As an operator in the banking sector, you could easily imagine anything else, but we are one of the largest IT houses in Finland and we produce the IT solutions visible to customers mainly independently from start to finish. 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. Is your career goal in leading projects and/or products, or maybe teams? Or do you wish to dive deep into technologies and work as a Principal Developer? We can help you with that! And of course on top of all this, we have a wide range of staff benefits.
