Mobile Developer (iOS, Android)
Mobile Developer (iOS, Android), Oulu
Could your next career step be in in-house mobile development in one of the largest software houses in Finland? Are you fascinated by the idea of millions of customers accessing the IT solutions you develop? This being said, we really think it is safe to say you’ll be doing very meaningful work.
What is the role and team like?
The bread and butter of our team is to develop OP Business Mobile's existing operations and create new functionalities that delight and retain the users. As a team, we are an active, fast-paced, and creative bunch of developers being proud of doing meaningful work for Finnish entrepreneurs to enable them to handle their payments via 24/7 banking, send invoices to customers, manage investments in real-time, and, for example, apply for financing as smoothly and hassle-free as possible. Having millions of active users and impressive growth (+50% to last year) OP Business Mobile is an application that reaches customers extensively on a Finnish scale.
As a Senior Developer, you will focus on developing OP Business Mobile's new functionalities for multiple feature areas, focusing especially on mobile client-side (both iOS and Android platforms). To fulfill our customer promise, the scalability and reliability of the service are a very important part in the development of OP Business Mobile, which is why we expect you to participate on creating stronger and better DevOps practices to support development. So, in a nutshell your days are made up with:
- Development work of OP Business Mobile
- Strong daily collaboration with internal stakeholders and your team
- Continuous improvement, both from a technology and WoW point of view
- DevOps mindset and inspiring approach
What we are hoping from you?
Naturally we hope to find someone with matching previous experience, but we already have solid experts in our team, so we don’t expect you to excel since day one. Our team consists of experienced professionals in requirements specification, programming, testing and product management who are always ready to share their own know-how. Most of all, we’re looking for someone eager to learn new things and who has energy to actually take all the new learnings into use. To be clear, we are looking for following skill set:
- Previous work experience of iOS and/or Android mobile development
- DevOps mindset and inspiring approach blended with a passion for problem-solving
- Good oral and written English and Finnish language skills
Experience in the following is seen as advantageous:
- Hybrid mobile platforms, API design, UX, Accessibility
- cloud services, e.g. AWS
What’s the catch then?
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. Oulu employs about 400 people and the entire OP Financial Group about 12,000 people, so a wide range of expertise can be found from experts in various fields. That is why there are thousands of experts in the field in our house, and the developer culture, for example, already seems strong today.
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.
And of course, 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, just to name a few.
Awesome - Let’s get to know each other! 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.

He’s happy to tell you more about the job and OP as an employer.
