Open Application to Software Development

Helsinki, Finland Full-time Allows remote

Are you a full stack developer who wants to try cloud computing? Or a consultant who's tired of constantly changing clients and tools? Or an excellent front end engineer, who wants to be even better by getting more versatile? Or are you just looking for new challenges in your career? If any of this sounds interesting we might have something for you!

RELEX is a fast growing company expanding to new countries and reaching more and more people each day. Thus, our core development team is constantly looking for talented people to join us. We embrace talent rather than knowledge on a specific technology or an exact match on the positions we have currently open. You can have a background on JVM, Python, JS, CLR or whatever - it does not matter as long as you have an interest on learning new things.

We are searching for software professionals who want to build easy to use, performant and resilient systems which have a purpose and a measurable impact on real world issues from cutting costs to reducing waste and increasing availability.

RELEX application runs in a JVM. All performance-critical business logic is written in Java, as well as our proprietary in-memory database engine that forms the foundation of the RELEX software and its performance. The backend layer is written in Ruby, running in the same JVM using JRuby. The backend communicates with the JavaScript frontend via a JSON-based HTTP API.
