We truly believe that success originates from cooperation. As colleagues we offer genuine people who are experienced professionals. We have an open atmosphere where you can easily be yourself. Our entrepreneurial drive and multinational group create a unique work environment and great career opportunities. Visma has also been recognized with the Great Place to Work ® certification.

We are looking for a Senior Software Developer (Scala) to join our versatile client projects, which are typically large, tailored web-solutions. The solution areas range from logistics management to reporting systems. Almost all solutions are hosted on cloud. You will get to use a versatile technology stack depending on client’s needs but mainly you will be working with Scala, Cassandra, MongoDB, SQL server, React, Elasticsearch, Apache Kafka, Docker, Kubernetes, and AWS. In our business unit at Visma Consulting you will be part of a team of around 14 enthusiastic software development professionals, where everyone works both with clients and technical implementation.

You will be involved in all stages of software development creating new business critical solutions  from scratch with modern technologies. You will focus on backend development with Scala and other frameworks. In addition, your tasks will include some frontend development with JavaScript frameworks. We don’t have dedicated architects to give you specified plans. Instead, based on a user case you will plan, implement and test your solutions in collaboration with your team. You will work from our office but in tight cooperation with the clients throughout the projects, starting from defining the requirements. Typically, you have several projects going on simultaneously, and some of them may continue later as maintenance projects. Teams are formed around the projects, consisting of 2-10 developers and a team lead.            

You will be a key player in our client projects and get a lot of responsibility since the day one. You will work with complex challenges and further develop your expertise. You will have a real impact on the technology choices and ways of working, and we expect you to share your ideas and knowledge. Depending on your interests and skills, you may take more responsibility for running the projects, for example. However, you may also focus on doing your thing and dive deep into coding. We offer you flexibility and freedom to do your job. 

Ideally, you have already a few years of work experience in developing complex web-based solutions. In addition, we expect you to have experience in developing with Scala or some other functional programming language. We are looking for a developer who is eager to grow professionally, able to take responsibility and work independently. Also good collaboration skills are highly valued as we expect you to communicate actively with the team and the client to keep them up-to-date what’s going on in your end and to share your knowledge. We have developers at our offices in Helsinki, Tampere and Jyväskylä, so please let us know which location would be the best option for you!

  • An opportunity to develop your expertise in diverse, extensive and challenging web development projects within the biggest companies and organizations in Finland – As an example, read how we built a logistics system for Valmet Automotive car plant in Uusikaupunki (in Finnish)
