We are now looking for full-time Senior Backend Developers for two of our teams in the Helsinki office. Together with these teams you will be developing world class retail space planning tools incorporated in our RELEX Store platform that help our customers plan and operate more efficiently. You’ll be joining either our Common Components or Floor Planning teams. 

Common Components is a Backend-focused team of 7 people, currently working on our product’s common microservices and communication between the different parts of the RELEX platform. In this team, your work will involve designing and developing new features such as a high load image upload service that is used to sync customers’ product images with cloud storage. You’ll also get to work with account level configurations and replacing Amazon Athena Storage, as we are migrating from AWS to Azure. This means plenty of opportunities for architectural decisions as we’re moving towards more scalable architecture in Azure. You'll also be working on creating tests, reviewing other peoples’ code and building monitoring and tooling to help in all this. 

As part of Common Components team you’ll be:

  • Developing software solutions by studying information needs and conferring with stakeholders
  • Collaborating with other teams to brainstorm and create new features
  • Studying systems flow, data usage and work processes
  • Investigating problem areas

Floor Planning is a growing feature team with people skilled in Product Management, Backend and Frontend implementations, testing and UX design. We build tools for store managers, floor planners and merchandisers to visualize and optimize both the layouts of the stores, as well as the products and categories in them. In this team, your work will involve designing and developing new features such as importing architectural drawings into a cloud based editor. You'll be building APIs using .NET Core microservices, SignalR and various data storage technologies from blob storage to relational databases. For new development, you'll have a say in the technologies we choose and the architectural decisions we make. As in all RELEX Store teams, you'll deploy infrastructure together with a dedicated DevOps team, automate tests with support from QA, as well as do code reviews and collaborate with your fellow developers.

As part of Floor Planning team your work will include:

  • Designing and developing new features
  • Building APIs
  • Contributing to technological and architectural decisions

What you’ll bring to the table: 

  • Several years of hands-on experience in software development
  • Expertise in backend development
  • Understanding of microservices architecture 
  • Solid experience with cloud services (preferably Azure)
  • Experience with big codebases to debug, improve, and maintain
  • Disciplined and professional attitude towards software quality
  • Interest in learning new things
  • Language skills: Fluent English skills (it’s our company language)

For Common Components we also appreciate:

  • Strong knowledge and experience of .NET Core and C#
  • Knowledge and experience of Angular/React and related best practices
  • Expertise with Gitlab CI/CD & Terraform

For Floor Planning we value:

  • Knowledge and experience of Angular/React and related best practices
  • Understanding of computer graphics concepts & CAD software

What we offer you in return:

  • Flexible work hours 
  • International working environment and learning opportunities in a rapidly growing software company
  • A fun, ambitious, and committed team of smart people to work with
  • Occupational healthcare provided by Heltti and an extensive IF Health Insurance 
  • Mobile phone and home internet benefit
  • Support for the families: a sick childcare service, a paid day off when your child starts the school for the first time, flexible work arrangements
  • A position where you can help retailers fight against food waste
