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.

We want to hear about professionally ambitious folks who cherish learning. We don't have a definitive preference about your work role, as a good match to our team always comes first, the role is only the second consideration.

However, we have at the very moment a slight preference for the areas listed below:

  • Front-End or Full-Stack Developer (you might also be interested in devops, data, or what so ever) - see our tech stack by scrolling down.

If you find our values and ways of working matching to yours, and you could see us as a possible future employer, give us a heads up in any case (as our needs regarding the roles can change pretty quickly)!

What are we looking for?

We are on a lookout for a person with a good match to our team's spirit - if you buy into our values, you should be okay - and with a will to learn, improve and to set the bar higher and higher (for yourself but for the other team members as well).

We are interested in hearing from all the people who find our values solid and might see themselves as part of our team, now or in the future, no matter would they be hands-on architect, front-end-, back-end- or devops engineers. Or if they have a soft spot for machine learning, AI thingie, blockchain, data visualization or some other interesting tech. 

We will have challenging tasks enough to fit any skill level, i.e. we'll have interesting stuff to work on should you be a seasoned pro with extensive knowhow or should you be just graduated with a bit less experience. However, at the moment we are mainly in search of mid to senior level developers.

In any case, if our values and way of doing things feels right up your alley and you are motivated to learn, just get in touch! 

Qualifications in a nutshell

  • You find our values sound (for real, we actually really really go by these)
  • You are a giver - in a good way - not a taker
  • You are self-driven and have a good work ethic
  • You are motivated to learn and have a curious mind
  • You like to make things (happen)
  • Bad and/or sarcastic and/or humor is a plus

Read below the fold what our team says about working with us!

A bit of ourselves

We might be just the thing for you if you think you would like to be more of a product than a project person. 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.

Our tech stack consists of some of the following words: React, Redux, Redux-Sagas, Immutable, Flowtypes, Sass (might be styled components in the future), Babel, Webpack, Symfony, MongoDB, RESTful, Git, Docker, Ansible, Jenkins, Nginx, etc. And we are looking into Kafka, React Native, Machine Learning in different forms (eg. stuff running on our own servers as pytorch as well as running as services as Watson) and whatnot.

And no, you don't have to have an extensive experience on each and every one of the tech above to be a suitable applicant. 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. And nobody can be really good at all the things, so you get to choose your weapons.

In short, we have a modern stack and an API centric code base that is continuously under refactoring to make it cleaner, simpler and better. If you want to work with the cutting edge tech, we have it. Or if we don't, you can bring it on - if it adds value to the product.

You would be working, like the rest of us, with our PACE product. It's technically - and commercially - a lot more sexier than might meet the eye (i.e. it's not "only a crm" as it is build as a platform in its own right; we are aiming to free up white collar workers' time from tedious routines to the actual work they want to do). We have production customers in healthcare and finance sectors, and first, but not the last, international customer as well. We are aiming to make an impact, not only to our own customers, but to our customers' customers as well.

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

    If this is not for you - perhaps this is for someone you know? Please give a nod to that person, so they can check if they'd feel there could be something for them here!

    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 Terveystalo, dental services, sports vouchers, a possibility to get luncheon vouchers etc.
    • Good tools: laptop & phone & headphones of your own choice
    • A competitive paycheck every month. 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.
    • Psychological safety. We are very stable from the financial point of view, but we are pretty sure we are that from the mental side as well. Our aim is to disagree as strongly with these statements as possible. We help each others, and we learn from mistakes, and we have room to grow.
     
    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.

    Miko Kari Front-End Developer Developing a product means that you end up savoring the fruits of your work countless times in the future. Working in a small company, on the other hand, means that you'll most likely be the one fixing them if they're not doing their job. This if anything should teach you a lesson about quality. Another positive aspect about working on a product is that it constantly invites you to refactor and re-design components. As a consequence, it's difficult to avoid growing as a developer in the process.

    Daniela Mårtenson Operations Specialist Rohea has given me the opportunity to push myself outside my comfort zone. I’m learning new things constantly, which can be hard, but with the support and patience of my colleagues, I feel confident I can do it. Rohea is a bunch of really awesome persons. I promise, you will be laughing a lot. Even when things get hectic, you can trust that somebody will make a joke. Although, the joke probably won’t be good.

    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.

    Nicolau Gonçalves Full-Stack Data Scientist When starting a new job, one of the things that worries both the current/prospective employees/employers is team fit. But I can say that, if you read the Rohea's values and feel they match yours, there won't be any issues fitting the team. At Rohea you don't feel limited in pursuing your own way of doing things. Self-learning, discussions, experiments are highly encouraged, especially if they might result in something applicable to the company's products. Summing up, trying by doing, discussing the "doing", and improving it is what Rohea is all about. As such, it's a great place to work.

    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.

    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.

    Michal Majer Back-End Developer I came to Finland to study and by chance stumbled across Rohea’s hiring page. I am no longer a student but I have never been learning so much as I am now. At Rohea I found a place where if you have an idea and take the initiative, you are given the chance to make things happen. Combined with a lot of freedom, it is a great place to grow. From the perspective of a foreigner, I truly appreciate the inclusive and friendly atmosphere at Rohea that make me feel at home.

    Yes, we know, it's almost 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!

    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 things you already have experience on, what you'd like to learn, what you are interested in, what have you done before, what things you are interested in, a CV or a link to your LinkedIn profile, desired salary, etc. If you have a portfolio or a github account or similar, please provide a link.
