Lead Developer – System Architecture
Did you ever think that joining a Finnish bank could get you deep into the global Developer Community? We have quietly been building and transforming OP into a Technology House, highlighted by our new division of OP R&D as a top destination for software developers in Helsinki and throughout Finland. You have likely been a customer of OP since you were a kid, how about a future here as a creator and software developing master?
OP R&D combines the stability and reputation of a serious business that’s the most modern and trusted bank in Finland, with the software start-up feeling of a well-funded group of talented software experts who are poised at the cusp of security, data science and machine learning. And the most interesting news for software talent in Helsinki: OP as a company, has wholly gone Agile! We have made the corporate and cultural transition to Agile since last year, meaning autonomy in teams, collaborative cohesion throughout OP, and a genuine progressive direction towards ‘tech love’. This is the perfect time for technical talent in Finland to come join us to be a part of building something great and unique.
Our Helsinki ‘campus’ in Vallila hosts over 2000 employees, a cohesive agile group of software developers and bankers who truly want to come to work. Our professionals are pampered by 6 restaurants, multiple gyms, physiotherapists, hair stylists, masseuses, all on-site like a small city. Oh, and remembering we are a bank, you get cheap mortgages and insurance benefits along with highly competitive salaries. Strolling from your desk to get coffee or on your way to a meeting, there is a buzz nearly everywhere, the immense design hall in the courtyard like a theater but without the echo (it’s truly spectacular).
More importantly is how we work…..beyond prototyping or working on one of the largest mobile apps in Finland with over 1M active users, you have freedom to generate ideas, freedom to finish a product when you’re actually done (not when a strict PM demands it). There is a real focus on Quality, employing Test Driven Development, Trunk Based Development and Data Science as we go deeper into Cloud Development. We are constantly finding new ways to make lives for developers easier, again spearheaded by our company wide Agile move.
As a high-productivity software engineering organization, we acknowledge the need for an open and collaborative workspace. Our movement towards cloud development and data driven analytics are next-level in Finland, first in banks. We are utilizing more and more AI functionalities and features too, constantly modernizing and improving the architecture of our products. Machine learning in cybersecurity and product development, our software developers have great options for their own further development.
In a nutshell, our working culture at OP R&D harbors true innovation and a well-balanced work-life. Our developers are encouraged, they are valued by their banking colleagues, they are paid well, and they are given the tools and freedom to create, learn, practice and grow. And most importantly, they actually want to make it to work on that Monday morning when many others wake up disgruntled.
In order to pioneer OP R&D’s aggressive expansion this year, we are now searching for 3 Lead Developers on 3 different teams to jumpstart our subsequent heavy technical recruitment.
