Software Developer

Published on 23.09.2020

Jaicom, established in 1999, is the leading provider of customer management systems in the Nordic countries now expanding to Central Europe. The company offers the broadest range of services and products in the market, including software and a wide selection of services for newspaper and magazine publishers and also for associations. Jaicom is part of the LM Information Delivery Group. 

Over 120 media companies with more than 500 titles use Jaicom’s products and services in their subscription and distribution operations. The company has locations in eight cities in the Nordic countries, as well as operations in several European countries, such as Austria, Germany and the UK. With our long-term partnership with major technology supplier Jaicom guarantees the best-of-breed products and services to its customers.

We are looking for a Software Developer to strengthen our development team preferably in Jyväskylä. Other locations are also negotiable so you may also be working in Oulu, Turku or Helsinki if these locations suit your better. Jaicom is in the middle of changing and renewing their Customer Management System’s architecture – this is where you step into the picture. The system is called Kayak and it is a comprehensive system for managing subscriptions and distribution. It is a tool for managing customer service, invoicing, accounts receivable, marketing and sales related to printed and digital products and services.

You’ll start from smaller development tasks and from getting familiar with the system. As soon as you are ready and feel comfortable taking ownership, you’ll take responsibility for bigger projects. You’ll be working on our internal product development and on our client projects. You can start from frontend or backend development or hop into fullstack from the first day on if that is your thing.

In internal product development, you may be working either on the previous platform or on the new one depending on your strengths and interests. In the previous platform, we are using Visual Studio, C#, VB.NET, Oracle and PL/SQL. In the new platform we are using technologies such as Ruby on Rails and AWS in addition to the previous technologies. However, previous experience of all of these is not required. Your daily tasks include navigating between the previous and new platforms and making the necessary changes and transfers from the old system to the new one. In client projects, you will implement and integrate our Kayak customer management system to client’s systems, maintain already existing solutions and develop new features based on our clients’ needs. Typically each developer has three to four projects going on simultaneously. The development team is working within two months’ sprints. You’ll work closely with the development team spread into different locations in Finland (and some in Sweden and China) and with our help desk and project managers. 

This position suits developers with different kinds of backgrounds and we are welcoming both junior and senior-level developers. Tasks and responsibilities can be adjusted according to your skills and interests. We provide you growth opportunities and support. People at Jaicom stay with us for a long time and we want to ensure that in your case as well!

We hope you to have:

  • Skills in some of the technologies and programming languages from our stack: Visual Studio, C#, VB.NET, Ruby on Rails, Oracle Cloud (or other cloud technologies), PL/SQL (or other databases)
  • Some relevant work experience (e.g. summer job, traineeships). We are also welcoming developers with more years of experience and the role is customizable to your background.
  • Good communication skills
  • Fluent skills in English

 We consider as an advantage:

  • Relevant educational background (e.g. computer science, information technology)
  • Skills in other programming languages
  • Fluent skills in Finnish and Swedish

We offer you:

  • Challenging responsibilities and the possibility to learn a lot from system architecture change
  • A possibility to work with modern technologies and create something totally new
  • Internal career development opportunities based on your interests
  • Easy-going and low hierarchy team spirit and support from highly experienced colleagues
  • A secure and long-lasting job in a stable company
  • A possibility to work in all our locations: Jyväskylä, Oulu, Turku or Helsinki 
  • Competitive salary and fringe benefits such as lunch, massage and sports & culture benefits
  • Flexible working hours and the possibility for remote work

In this position, you will be employed directly to Jaicom.
