This is your chance: In Solita we have created an unique training path enabling you to work as a data engineer in customer assignments with leading Nordic companies. Check out this opportunity to take the next step on your career and apply!

Our training path offers you an opportunity to work as a data engineer or data developer.  You will become part of our large and growing community of experienced data professionals to help our customers become more data driven. We will provide you with all of the required support and tools so you can become a trusted advisor for your clients.

Step to the path!

  • Let's go!

    Your path from developer to data professional will start with Solita starter kickoff and bootcamp. Here we will introduce you to our ways of working, people and culture, offering and practicalities.

  • Bridge from development to data

    You might already know something about cloud technologies, automation, and DevOps. Here we will take more data-oriented perspective to these technologies and methods. We will cover for example Azure, AWS, and/or GCP data tools, Spark tooling, and modern integrations.

  • Data is here!

    Let’s get to the point now: modern data technologies. In this phase, you may meet some new friends like data platforms and data modeling in general, Agile Data Engine, Snowflake, and many more.

  • Learning in customer projects

    Hands on! Of course, you’ll get to practice your new skills on customer projects. In Solita you have the ability to choose your project. We have customers from different industries, eg. healthcare, retail, and mobility. Which one would you prefer?

  • Certification and competence development

    To stay professional and develop your skills even more, we support you to certificate. You can complete certifications for example on Azure, AWS, GCP, and Snowflake. Also, we have Solita Growth Academy to provide even more training paths and lectures to develop your skills.

Working as a Data Engineer

You will be creating impact by enabling new data capabilities to support the customers’ business decision making. It might be designing and implementing data pipelines, data models, data architecture, creating data visualizations, and much more.

At Solita we are technology agnostic, meaning that the team has free hands to select the technologies and tools that best suit the use case, for example:

  • Modern cloud platforms: AWS, Azure, GCP
  • Data tools: ADE, Matillion, Informatica, Talend, Airflow, Semarchy, Alation​
  • Different database technologies: Snowflake, Azure DW/Synapse, Redshift
  • Analytics tools: Tableau, Power BI, Jedox, IBM TM1, Databricks
  • Methodologies such as DataOps & CI/CD
  • Programming languages: Python, NodeJS, C#, R, Spark, Java, Scala, Clojure

We believe in lean and agile methodologies, low hierarchy, and independent teams.

Versatile training sessions

Our versatile training path combines lectures, hands-on work on data projects, mentoring, and certification. To get the understanding of data projects and the modern data tools there will be training path sessions to guide your journey, for example

  • Development in data projects
  • Spark based data tooling
  • Azure/AWS/GCP services in data projects
  • Modern integrations
  • Data modeling techniques
  • The final program structure will be formed based on the needs of the training path participants.

Working with forerunner companies

During and after the training we offer you interesting projects to work with. At Solita you will be able to impact and choose the projects you’ll be working on. We have a lot of customer projects to choose from, like DNA, Ponsse, and YIT.

We work as a team and want to work on projects that create an impact that lasts. That is, we do influential projects that change our customers’ business or our society for the better.

You can find examples of such cases as Corona Blinker or everyday tools for EU citizens to combat climate change.

Meet Joni, our Data Architect

I’m a data professional with a background in software development. The best thing about my job is that I can work on projects with a wide range of experts and figure out together how our customers can get the best out of their data.

My background in programming has been very useful when it comes to keeping the focus on the end user and the business. At Solita, I have especially liked that there are plenty of competent colleagues and a strong culture of helping.
