Backend software developer

Apply for this job

We’re looking to extend our in-house product team building a Home Services Platform with a software developer working at the core of our business in the backend. Freska’s product teams are cross functional, responsible for the end-to-end development and maintenance of their products while solving business cases through design, implementation and operations. You will become part of the service team. The service team is responsible for our service worker facing products as well as the tooling for our cleaner operations, helping hundreds of service workers across Finland, Sweden and Norway to do a great job.

Areas of responsibility:

You’ll have a key role in the development of our home services platform and related products. You will work in our team maintaining and developing our unique workforce management systems, whilst continually learning and mastering the technologies involved.

__Specifically: __

You will be actively developing new workforce management and optimization algorithms with performance, configurability and scalability in mind. You will be developing new features in our backend systems. You will actively support our existing products when it comes to e.g. changes to the data layer and API endpoints. You will help develop solutions that solve real problems for our service workers, customer care and service worker HR teams. You will develop product thinking - you’ll work together with product management to understand the business requirements and create solutions.

Our stack and tooling today consists of Ruby on Rails, Elasticsearch, Postgres, Redis, built-in Circle-CI, monitoring with NewRelic and hosted on Google Cloud. New development on our platform may involve the use of other technologies such as Go. On the front-end we use React, Redux, GraphQL and Gatsby, hosted in Netlify and for mobile apps our choice is Flutter.

The candidate we are looking for is someone who:

  • Has solid experience with Ruby and Ruby on Rails
  • Has experience bringing algorithmic and optimisation concepts into production
  • Loves to dig deep into complex business logic
  • Can communicate clearly across teams and disciplines
  • Is comfortable making decisions and failing fast
  • Can assist when defining and scoping product roadmaps
  • Can manage their time to also support existing operations and varying business needs
  • Fits well within the team dynamic and Freska culture
  • Has a "Can do!" and positive mindset and willingness to learn
  • Has the ability to adapt within a quickly growing company

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with NodeJs, SQL, Docker, Compose, Kubernetes or other emerging and relevant technologies.
  • Full-stack mindset. Our team is small and we appreciate people who can help out when it is needed in other areas and feel positively challenged to step outside their comfort zone once in a while.

What we provide:

  • Challenges and growth - Become a part of one of the fastest growing companies in the Nordics building a home service platform.
  • Competitive compensation - A competitive salary, plus benefits.
  • Professional growth - International, talented team with lots of learning opportunities.
  • Clean home - 50% sponsorship of regular cleaning.
  • A productive setup - Equipment of choice.
  • Convenience - Central headquarters in the heart of downtown Helsinki.
  • Great culture and lots of fun every day!
