Senior Fullstack Developer (TypeScript)

Helsinki, Finland Full-time

We are now looking for a new Senior Fullstack Developer to join our family of extraordinary people.

Here at RELEX we work in small teams where everyone’s input is valued. People can move between teams based on required skill set and personal interest. You get as much freedom and responsibilities as you feel comfortable with. We believe in transparency and using common sense; you are free to choose the tools you need to reach our common goals. Here we are serious about what we do, but don’t take ourselves too seriously. We get excited when facing new challenges where we can put our skills to the test, but make sure to have fun doing it. Now - if you accept the challenge - we give you the opportunity to experience all this and more.  

What you’ll be doing:

You will be developing features for the RELEX WFO (Workforce Optimization). You would be focusing on the Payroll microservice, building the configurable, independently deployable service responsible for calculating payroll material for thousands of employees. Depending on your experience and interests, it is possible to take ownership of the microservice. You would be developing the NodeJS/TypeScript backend, utilising PostgreSQL database, and building React-Redux-TypeScript frontend. You would also be e.g. writing automated tests and review code. The microservice functionality is more focused on the backend side, but needs a frontend as well. The product is still in its early stages, so you would have a great impact on the technology and UX related choices. The service will be running on Azure Kubernetes, packaged with Docker, and you would also take part in the operations, meaning you would be utilising/learning some devops skills.

What you’ll bring to the table:

You have extensive experience on building modern web applications. You have experience on JavaScript and on some transpiling language, such as TypeScript. You know how to design, implement and use REST APIs. The microservice functionality is more focused on the backend side, but needs a frontend as well for creating configurations and for the customer super users, so interest and/or experience on frontend side is a plus, but no extensive UX skills required (see our other positions if that is your thing).

What we offer:

The ability to choose your own tools (most of us are using MacBook Pros or Linux laptops, editors vary), smartphone and broadband connection benefits and lots of sporting options, and of course a brewing club! We keep our tech stack up to date and interesting, and aim for clean and maintainable code. We take the development experience and your growth and learning seriously!

When hiring, we prefer people who are willing to relocate to the Engineering site in Helsinki. We promote part-time remote work, but like to have office days within the week.

 

The team:

We (RELEX WFO) are a small international team of software developers, working closely together with the business and customers. We used to be an independent startup and were acquired by RELEX, and now we are scaling up the team within the new company. We are organising the RELEX WFO cross-functional teams around domains, and the teams are located in the same space and do close collaboration. We have an outstanding team spirit and aim to shine as a team, without politics or bureaucracy. This is a great time to join us: you get to have a big impact on how we grow and how we do things. To get to know our team you can check out the RELEX careers blog.

RELEX WFO is bringing the workforce management into a new era by creating optimal shifts automatically based on forecasts, all while keeping the employees happy!
