Hi there!

The people we are looking for have a combination of talent, ambition, professional pride, but also humility to know that we all have a never-ending need to learn, to improve and to drive ourselves to reach higher.

- Update 3: Two new comrades found. We still have room for you! :)

- Update 2: we got a feedback that we are not hyping our ways of doing things and the company itself enough if compared to others. Not our style. Our modus operandi is to focus on doing stuff, and do it well, not to make a fuss out of it. We are a pretty nice bunch of people and we have quite a few very interesting things happening right now though!

- Update 1: we need 3-4 devs :)

We want to hear about good developers out there.

f you think you might or would like to be more of a product than a project person, we might be just the thing for you. We are a product house to the very core. No traditional consulting or project work with us. That is not to say that our job tasks would not be diverse. Oh, they are, as much as you want them to be.

If this is not for you - perhaps this is for someone you know? Please share!

Our tech stack consists of some of the following words: React, Redux, Immutable, Babel, Webpack, Symfony2, MongoDB, restful, git, Sass, Vagrant, Ansible, Jenkins, nginx, etc. And we are interested in React Native, Electron, Docker, machine learning and whatnot.

And no, you don't have to have strong experience on each and every one of these to be a suitable applicant. After all, the tech always changes, so motivation, getting things done, curiosity and a hunger to learn are the most important capabilities. I.e. if you know some of the tech above already, that’s perfect. If you're motivated and a quick learner, that’s as good.

Furthermore, we don't have a strong preference about your work role as a good match and a strong addition to our team comes first, the role is only the second consideration. E.g. the next recruitment might be an UX developer, but it might be a hands-on architect or a full stack-, front-end-, back-end- or a devops engineer. Or if you have a soft spot for machine learning, AI thingie, IoT, blockchain, data visualization or other interesting tech, bring it on. We don't discriminate - as long you are ready to get your hands dirty - we'll be intrigued. 

Additionally, if things go anywhere near according to our plans, we will need more ambitious and talented people in the very near future, so drop us a message in any case!

You might have a little bit of experience under your belt. But then again, if our values and way of doing things feels right up your alley and you are motivated to learn, then just get in touch all the same!

Qualifications

You would, at least mostly, be working with our PACE product. It's technically - and commercially - a lot more sexier than might meet the eye.

We are going to make it big. And we already have made a pretty good progress on this path.

Eero Holmila CEO / Co-owner We have our up and downs, but I do believe that people who are self-driven and hungry to learn will be happy with us. I do put a lot weight on work ethics and I'd get irritated if somebody would seem to be "just working", e.g. seem not to be interested in reaching their full potential (and then some). We put much emphasis on quality and continuous improvement. And to a freedom of being yourself. Me myself: I try not to get into way of people doing stuff or micromanage. Sometimes I fail, but luckily when I do, I'll mostly get instant feedback to back off. That is good.

Sasu Honkala Senior Full-Stack Developer With Rohea the tasks have always been diverse and how you go about them is mostly in your hands. My main selling point is that you won't be stuck in what you do, you will always be improving yourself and can influence the tasks you will be undertaking.   It won't always be easy, but good things never are.

Mikko Tarvainen Senior DevOps Engineer I've always find it fascinating that Rohea has never been stuck in just certain way of getting things done. Latest technologies and trends are adopted regularly which is why methologies and tooling tends to follow best practices. But to be honest, that's also why there's always some legacy code to refactor or technical debt to pay off.   Overall Rohea has provided me a path from programmer to DevOps engineer, so there's always room to grow and take more responsibility.

Tomi Saarinen Chief Architect / Co-owner We're growing a company where building high quality is the default state of mind. We iterate, improve and refactor, most of the time without client asking to. It means you won't get thanked for doing normal but cheered if you find a way to work your magic better.   I'm the guy who asks people to fix their naming schemes to follow a pattern I figured out and probably forgot to tell about. In a wider sense, I think every single part of a software needs to be thought through with loving and caring attitude. Solid argumentation is how things get decided most times.

Heikki Niiranen Senior Full-Stack Developer Rohea is a place for doing. If you see something that could be done better, you go and improve it. If something isn’t working, you fix it. Colleagues are supporting and helping you to accomplish what you want and need to do and (often) provide some humorous interludes while doing it. I enjoy the atmosphere of freedom and constant learning that reigns in Rohea.

Teemu Reisbacka Senior Full-Stack Developer Rohea is a place that gives you a lot of freedom how to do your work. You have a say in your tools and in your approach to problem solving. Do you sometimes want to work remotely or even take a few months and set up office abroad? If you can do it responsibly and the flow with your teammates works, it's completely doable. Results matter, but if it works, how you do it is open for discussion.   At Rohea, I appreciate the trust I can put in my co-workers and the trust I receive myself to do the work in ways I find most fulfilling.

Antti Lämsä Front-End Developer / Customer Service Rohea is fair and humane. You will be given time and opportunities to better yourself, but you also need to show results, which is fair.

Tero Heikkinen Advisor / Co-owner Rohea gave me inspirational environment and mindset. Company’s inborn drive to make friendlier software gives you great place to display your passion to build great products that you can be proud of.   I’ve dropped out from daily life at Rohea few years years ago in order to become medical doctor. Now when looking Rohea outside the box, I’m very happy to see a positive energy and team that aspires to create products that are both beautiful and friendly both end user and developer point of view.

Yes, we know, it's an ALL MALE panel. But it's not so by purpose.

We really warmly welcome all the non-male applicants as well. It is not about gender!

What do we offer?

Immaterial benefits

  • Challenges. Our tech ambitions don't lay in easy-level implementations or modifications. We aim high and higher, i.e. when you might otherwise start to get too comfortable elsewhere, with us you'd probably have just moved to a next puzzle
  • Room to grow. You get all the responsibility you want to and are ready to handle.. and can pull off.
  • A possibility to hone your skills to the max and beyond. We cherish learning.
  • A possibility to extend your knowhow to new domains. We take regularly, preferably weekly, time to learn and to play with new (or old) things. Of your own choice and interest.
  • A work role tailored to you. People do things, roles don't. At the end of the day your work role will be the one you are most interested in and the one that with you can bring most value to colleagues and to the company. And it can change during the ride, if it should be so. As it probably will.
  • Flexibility. As much as you need and as much you can handle without letting the others down.
  • Freedom. You can work from the office or from home, early in the morning or late in the evening, four days a week or full week or however. As long it works out with rest of the team, i.e. your doings don't negatively affect others.

Material benefits

  • Very flat organization. We also kinda hate meetings for meeting's sake.
  • A mentor to help you get started and up to full speed 
  • Life outside work (or a possibility for it). We believe a normal amount of working hours should be enough to make a difference.
  • Some perks: office at the very center of Helsinki, monthly public transportation ticket, home internet, mobile phone bill will be taken care of, some extra insurances covering spare-time incidents, occupational healthcare at Diacor, dental services, sports vouchers, a possibility to get luncheon vouchers etc.
  • Good tools: laptop & phone & headphones of your own choice
  • A paycheck every month, needless to say. And we are not going broke anytime soon as we are cashflow positive with long partnership deals in place & without outside funding (we're growing too). 
  • Employee dividends program. Every year - if it has been a profitable one, as it has been every year to this date - a good chunk of the profit, without a max capping limit, will be shared to employees. If the company succeeds, everybody making it will.

Interested? Get in touch.

Please send an informal email to Eero - feel free to send it in Finnish if you wish - to learn more and to start a conversation.

From your end, you can tell, for example, how do you see your fit to our culture and values, what you already know and/or master and what you'd like to learn, what you are interested in, what have you done before - if you have a portfolio or a github account etc, please provide a link - what hobbies do you have and what things light your fire, a CV or a link to your linkedin profile, desired salary, etc.

Ps. If you think you have nothing new to learn and/or you feel you won't have any need to prove yourself to your new colleagues, we might not be a best fit for you. We believe actions speak louder than words and we probably haven't been able to see you in action before!
