Responsibilities & projects

As a member of our growing Oikotie Asunnot tech squad, you are one of the key contributors
to the new features development and the renewal of the marketplace’s architecture. Your
focus is on designing and implementing scalable and robust web services, APIs and
databases in a cloud environment. Furthermore, you ensure the quality of our services in the
complex hi-load environment through diverse practises like monitoring, efficient logging,
automation and unit testing with code coverage. We do discovery work, conceptualization
and experimentation guided by OKRs (Objectives – Key Results), we develop in sprints, and
release on-demand.

Tech stack

Key technologies in use are Zend and Slim frameworks, AngularJS, Ecmascript/Typescript
and MySQL/Aurora. Our containerised and serverless environments run in the AWS and
CI/CD pipelines are designed to deliver code into production a few times per week. You jump
into a moving train since we are currently transitioning our already modernised stack to an
even more modern one. We are still on the move forward and you will be a part of the
journey. An open mind for new tech, best practices and methods are celebrated and
learnings are guaranteed, as this is a pivotal moment for the Oikotie tech organisation.


During your first six months, we expect you to get on board, settle in the team, gradually take
over your role and collaboratively start building new features for Oikotie Asunnot. Further
down the road, we are eager to see you not just finishing backlog tasks but also contributing
to building our vision, strategy and work methods. Your expertise is for example needed in
the product discovery initiatives where you would act as a tech expert. How do we bring
even more traffic and new listings on our real-estate platform, it’s up to you and to the team!
Not everything is sweet, so here is the main opportunity for improvement

As we are scaling up our software architecture and collaborating across teams, we aim to
modernise the architecture and make it more loosely coupled. Thus, your expertise is
needed in analysing the current situation and throwing in ideas. Are you ready to hop along
on the development journey?


Here is a 98 member tech family eagerly waiting for you! Our Oikotie Asunnot Tech team
gathers together 12 bright experts: developers, a tester, designers, a lead developer,
Product Managers & a Development Manager. We are a growing team, thus new colleagues
will be welcomed in the near future! We are mature in agile practises and our work is paced
by two-week sprints and OKRs in a network of empowered cross-functional squads. We
expect everyone in our team to improve our common ways of working and share learnings &
best practices since we believe them to enable both individual and team growth.

When getting to know us, you notice quickly that, we truly live and work based on our three
key values: we win together when working on cross-functional squads around the OKRs,
we encourage each other to be curious and actively develop ourselves for example with the
help of LinkedIn Learning -platform, and we are empowered to have courage to share ideas and challenge ourselves. If our way of living resonates with you, we believe that we are a
dream workplace for you!
