Data Architects to Finland

Data Architect Solita

We are looking for experienced Data Architects to join us in building a better tomorrow together with the best talent in data, analytics and software development that Finland has to offer. Positions are open in Helsinki, Tampere, Oulu, Turku, and Lahti.

The Data Architect role places you at the forefront of the Finnish digitalization. You will use your skills and vision to support the development of our customers’ business, and you can also work in pre-sales together with our account managers if you wish. You will map the current situation and outline future goals. You will describe to our customers the business opportunities ahead and how they can capitalize on these opportunities, in particular from the perspective of data and analytics. Your job is to design technical solutions that incorporate data modeling and integrations, data warehouses and cloud-based data pipelines, for example, and to implement them with a team.

We at Solita have worked with data for over 15 years and today we employ over 200 data specialists. Our cozy offices are centrally located in the largest cities of Finland and the other Nordic countries. As a Data Architect, you will work in a Solita team on the premises of our customers, as well as in our offices in Helsinki, Turku, Oulu, Tampere or Lahti. Read more about our data expertise!

What we are looking for in a Data Architect’s skillset

  • You can map out architecture-level solutions for both business decision-makers and the implementing experts in an understandable way.
  • We hope to see the following in your toolkit: data modeling, data warehousing, databases (SQL/NoSQL) and ETL/ELT.
  • You will make us very happy if you are familiar with cloud service architecture and can comprehensively apply cloud service provider offerings (AWS, Azure, etc.) to meet the customer’s business needs.
  • You are able to handle data fluidly (parse, transfer, store, edit) and build data pipelines in some programming language, e.g. Python, R or Java.
  • You are familiar with software development practices, e.g. version control and CI/CD.
  • You show the Solita boldness, casualness, passion and caring towards your work and others.

Examples of our data, AI, and analytics projects

  • For Amer Sports, we built a unique data platform. We designed and implemented a platform that combines customer and sales data. The technologies used were Microsoft Power BI and the Azure cloud. The data platform produces forecasts that allow production and the logistics chain to be optimized to meet demand with an accuracy of 90 percent, resulting in annual savings in materials that are up to tens of millions of euros.
  • For DNA, we created a top-class artificial intelligence to predict customer needs. The AI is based in the cloud and driven by data science and open-source code. This ultimate data platform allowed the customer to replace isolated data silos and analytics projects with a unified solution. The data platform won the Best Data Use category of the Grand One 2017 competition.
