TL;DR: We are looking for an experienced software developer interested in building a top-notch consultancy with us! If you want to work on greenfield projects with modern techs, in a tight-knit community where you really have an impact, New Things Co is the right place for you!
Working environment at New Things Co
We operate in a low hierarchy, self-organizing environment where anyone can take a role and get things done. We give full trust and autonomy from day one.
We welcome you into a close-knit community where people care about each other and do things together. Our values are important to us, and we adhere to them in all our daily activities. We want to create an environment where you can influence the things that interest you and develop professionally.
We dedicate a lot of time and resources so that our consultants can continuously develop their expertise, not only in technical but also in business matters. We have created learning paths that allow you to expand or deepen your knowledge in the topics you are interested in, or you can freely choose the courses that best suit your needs.
We are looking for companies that want to build something completely new and exciting with the New Things team. Projects where we can offer our clients more than “just doing” the job as a pair of hands. We want to be a strategic partner for our customers.
All our projects are based on modern technologies with modern methods and tools. For example, TypeScript, React.js, Vue.js, Node.js, Java, Kotlin, Golang, AWS, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL are techs commonly found in our projects. You don’t have to know everything about everything, but we hope you have a good understanding of both frontend and backend development. Our consultants see all sales leads from the moment they arrive and get to be involved in the sales process as much as they feel comfortable. By doing this we make sure everyone ends up in a project of their choosing, doing the things that interest them specifically.
At New Things Co, you can do most of the work remotely, depending on your preferences. However, we want to work closely with our customers, so the work may also include on-site work, for example at the customer's premises.
Our salary model is based on a fixed monthly salary that allows you to spend some of your time developing yourself and our company without it affecting your income level. Our salary range is 4000-6000 € / month, in addition to which we offer a quarterly bonus based on the company's results and a comprehensive benefits package.
What are we looking for?
Experience in developing web-based products, functional programming, cloud platforms, and distributed systems. We choose our technologies pragmatically for our client projects, always focusing on problem-solving first.
Great teamwork skills; Sharing knowledge, helping others, learning from others, and asking for help when you need it.
Communication skills; treating others with respect and empathy.
An interest in being a part of building a consultancy of the 2020s is seen as a bonus!
Fluent English, fluent Finnish is a major bonus.
Necessary permits to work in Finland.
Living in or close to the Helsinki Region. For the right person, we will support relocation.
Our process is flexible and streamlined. As we are not looking for anyone for a specific project, we don’t have specific timelines or rush. However, we are able to go through the whole process in 1-2 weeks if needed. Our Ollie wrote a blog about the process and how he ended up at New Things, check it out here!
But, otherwise this is how our whole process usually looks like:
We ask to see some code you have made: This can be a hobby project that you have been working on or something professional. We don’t mind, as long as you feel it represents your skills. We also have a home assignment you can take a stab at.
Technical discussion: This is a great chance to meet future teammates and ask them all about tech stuff. They will be interested to go through the code you sent us earlier and ask you a bunch of more technical questions.
Deliberation and offer
