Open position

Software Architect

We can affect people’s everyday lives with the work that we do together here at Solita. In addition to interesting projects, we want to ensure that Solitans have a balance between work and free time. Want to join our diverse community?

We are looking for Software Architects to work with us in Helsinki, Lahti, Tampere, Turku, or Oulu, as well as in our light offices (Jyväskylä, Pori, Kuopio, Joensuu, Vaasa), and in some cases completely remotely in other locations within Finland. What is it that we’re looking for now? Passionate people who want to work in meaningful projects and help others around them shine!

We are developing solutions for both private and public sector customers. We don’t have customers from any specific business area, as we concentrate on having varied projects that are meaningful. This can mean that we have an impact on how we help users find more convenient routes, we get to use the newest technologies or we handle a global pandemic. Solita's projects are a combination of dev, data, cloud, and service design. The diversity of our projects also gives opportunities for continuous learning and rotation. 

Possibilities are endless

Creating opportunities for developing your skills really is in the core of working at Solita, no matter how senior you already may be. When you arrive at Solita, the role that you first start with won’t be the only one you’ll have on your journey with us. For example, one of our Software Architects Heikki describes his past five years like this: 

“I’ve worked at Solita for five years now. During that time I’ve worked with two different clients, in various projects. The work that we do is so versatile that it allows constant learning no matter how senior you already are. The project team has a big impact on what technologies we use in different situations. During my time at Solita, I have deepened my knowledge for example with Java, Clojure, Typescript / Node.js

What’s the best thing about working at Solita for me? I would say it’s learning from others, and getting to do very diverse tasks, such as coding, job interviews, participating in book clubs / study groups etc. – whatever interests me the most!”
