Solita trains software developers in the art of mobile apps

Solita, a Finnish digital business consultancy company will in March 2018 launch the Mobile for Developers training programme for software developers. The programme is directed especially to software developers and architects who want to expand their competence in developing mobile application technologies and tools as well as improve the way they think about the comprehensive strategic development of services. The application deadline for the training programme is 18 February, 2018.

During the Mobile for Developers programme, the software developers will have a full time permanent position at Solita. In future, due to the additional skills, the developers will have more options and wider career opportunities and possibilities to choose interesting projects. Solita’s clients are domestic and international companies, and governments. The aim of the mobile training programme is to find experienced software developers or architects who, as part of their job, want to expand their skills in mobile applications tools and technologies.

“Relative to the market demand, there are still very few mobile developers in Finland. We want to offer the people at Solita and to the program developer community at large a chance to deepen their skills in the mobile development area,” Kati Kitti, Solita’s Head of Recruitment, comments on the birth of the training programme.

The duration of the Mobile for Developers training programme is 6 months, and the application deadline is 18th of February. The training programme starts in March 2018.
