Job description

We’re searching for a skilled backend developer with an inquisitive mind to join our team of awesomeness in Helsinki. If you’ve got a strong track record in server-side development, and enjoy the buzz of solving problems and making the magic happen behind the scenes, you could be the person for us!


Who we are

We’re Happeo - a team of passionate problem-solvers, working hard to build and provide the best social intranet out there. We managed to secure our Series-A funding right in the middle of a pandemic. That’s right, that’s how good our product is. It’s our dream to make work a happier place by bringing people together through a happy digital culture. Turns out a digital culture is especially desirable during pandemics. Happeo's talent is spread across locations, generations, and time zones, helping Happeo's continued growth of 280% year on year.


Our solution comprises a web and a mobile application.

  • On the backend, we are using Java, Node.js
  • On the frontend, we are using React and Angular (deprecating it)
  • On mobile, we use React Native
  • We are using services provided by Google Cloud Platform

Job requirements

Essentials

  • 5 years+ experience in Back-End Development
  • Experience with Java and Node.js
  • An understanding of computer networks
  • Customer-oriented attitude
  • Someone who is either based in (or ready to move to) either in Helsinki (Finland) or Cluj (Romania).

Nice to have

  • Any experience with DevOps (Kubernetes, Docker, and Continuous Integration)
  • Familiarity with Google Cloud Platform
  • Familiarity with creating integrations

We dedicate ourselves to these values:

H - Happiness and our commitment to being happy at work

A - “All-for-one-and-one-for-all” - be inclusive, diverse, and trust each other

P - Passionate - signifies our commitment to excellence

P - Perseverant - never giving up on what we believe in

E - Empathetic - respect and try to understand each other's struggles

O - Olympic - always be your best and ready to win!


Besides values we truly believe in, we also offer:

  • A competitive salary.
  • A fun position without the stiffness of the corporate world.
  • We’re a small team with a big user base, the work you do will have a big impact. That means you have the chance to make your mark.
  • Tools you need for your work (duh).
  • The trust and flexibility to work how and where you choose.
  • Company outings, online health-related events, and shenanigans. We are already planning some fun team activities and workcations (anyone up for a trip to our office in Romania?) for when the situation allows for it.
  • Diverse (over 20 nationalities and counting!), creative, intelligent, entertaining, friendly, and totally modest colleagues.
  • Healthcare benefit on top of your salary
  • An office in the heart of Helsinki with smart and supportive colleagues

Contrary to pineapple on pizza, we could be a great match. If you enjoy a healthy and inspiring work environment, motivated and hard-working colleagues, and aspire to hang out with us and drink beer (or ginger beer), then get in touch. This position will be filled as soon as the right person shakes our hand, so get your application in asap!
