WHAT’S THE JOB LIKE?
Responsibilities & projects
As a member of our growing Oikotie Asunnot tech squad, you are one of the key contributors to the new features development and the renewal of the marketplace’s architecture. Your focus is on designing and implementing scalable and robust web services, APIs and databases in a cloud environment. Furthermore, you ensure the quality of our services in the complex hi-load environment through diverse practises like monitoring, efficient logging, automation and unit testing with code coverage. We do discovery work, conceptualization and experimentation guided by OKRs (Objectives - Key Results), we develop in sprints, and release on-demand.
Key technologies in use are Zend and Slim frameworks, AngularJS, Ecmascript/Typescript and MySQL/Aurora. Our containerised and serverless environments run in the AWS and CI/CD pipelines are designed to deliver code into production a few times per week. You jump into a moving train since we are currently transitioning our already modernised stack to an even more modern one. We are still on the move forward and you will be a part of the journey. An open mind for new tech, best practices and methods are celebrated and learnings are guaranteed, as this is a pivotal moment for the Oikotie tech organisation.
During your first six months, we expect you to get on board, settle in the team, gradually take over your role and collaboratively start building new features for Oikotie Asunnot.
Further down the road, approximately after 12 months, we’re eager to see you standing on your own (we’re here to have your back!). You finish backlog tasks & also contribute to building our vision, strategy and work methods. For example, your expertise is needed in the product discovery initiatives where you would act as a tech expert. How do we bring even more traffic and new listings to our real-estate platform, it’s up to you and to the team!
Not everything is sweet, so here is the main opportunity for improvement
As we are scaling up our software architecture and collaborating across teams, we aim to modernise the architecture and make it more loosely coupled. Thus, your expertise is needed in analysing the current situation and throwing in ideas. Are you ready to hop along on the development journey?
Here is a 98 member tech family eagerly waiting for you! Our Oikotie Asunnot Tech team gathers together 15 bright experts: developers, QAs, designers, Product Managers & a Development Manager. We are a growing team, thus new colleagues will be welcomed in the near future! We are mature in agile practises and our work is paced by two-week sprints and OKRs in a network of empowered cross-functional squads. We expect everyone in our team to improve our common ways of working and share learnings & best practices since we believe them to enable both individual and team growth.
When getting to know us, you notice quickly that, we truly live and work based on our three key values: we win together when working on cross-functional squads around the OKRs, we encourage each other to be curious and actively develop ourselves for example with the help of LinkedIn Learning -platform, and we are empowered to have courage to share ideas and challenge ourselves. If our way of living resonates with you, we believe that we are a dream workplace for you!
