Planner UI is used by customers to plan and manage their workforce.

We strive to build a world class, forecast-based workforce optimisation SaaS that allows reducing labor costs while simultaneously increasing service levels. You will help us achieve this goal by building the Planner experience that allows effective work shift planning by utilising workload forecasts and running shift optimisations.

  • Participate in designing concepts and features from early on (we use Miro and Mural among other tools)
  • Write specs and documentation (we use Confluence and Jira)
  • Collaborate with UX designers, product owners and business consultants to build the best possible UI (we use Figma)
  • Collaborate with other development teams to design solid and scalable technical solutions (we use Slack and Teams for communication)

What you’ll bring to the table:

  • Several years of experience in software development
  • Experience in at least some of following technologies: React, Redux, Node.js, TypeScript
  • Appreciation towards clean and maintainable code and reliable software
  • Experience working in an agile software development team (we use Kanban)
  • Good written and verbal English language skills (we communicate in English)

What we consider as an advantage:

  • Interest towards learning new things and sharing knowledge with others
  • Diversity and different perspectives
  • Experience building great UX
  • Full-stack experience (our backend runs on Elixir/Phoenix and PostgreSQL)
  • Experience with cloud services (Azure, K8s, Terraform)
  • Interest towards functional programming
  • Interest in domain-driven design
  • Desire to put an end to stupid things. Raise your hand when you see something that does not make sense or could be done differently

What we offer you in return:

  • An international career and learning opportunities in a rapidly growing software company
  • A fun, ambitious, and committed team of smart people to work with
  • A respectful and professional, yet easy-going atmosphere where individual thinking is encouraged
  • Flexibility to position yourself based on interests and desire to develop your skills
  • A position at a company that has been doing well despite the global pandemic
  • Flexible working hours and freedom to decide to what extend you prefer to work remote/on-sight (you’ll need to be resident in Finland or willing to relocate)
  • True continuous deployment
  • A technology driven environment that allows developers to take responsibility and have a say in decisions being made
