Challenges and work environment
Voima is looking for capable senior / lead frontend engineer with some experience under their belt and great understanding of the modern frontend landscape. You will be taking a big role in the frontend engineering team and we provide tools and guidance for your growth. We expect you to take ownership of the frontend side of Voima's main products. We expect you to be able to grow the team around you with the help of other departments.
You will be working in a small team of in-house developers with a range of differing skills. You will be mainly working with the Lead Developer on the direction of frontend development. You will be coordinating with a small team of frontend developers and designers on implementing changes to the UX and UI.

Our software engineering team enjoys innovating and coming up with new innovative solutions to increase security, ease the development or automate processes.
The challenges we face on the frontend side are creating pixel-perfect and easy-to-use interfaces that people enjoy and want to use on their computers or mobile devices. Building efficient development methodologies and reusable code to deploy changes easily and enabling content creators to deploy changes to the content of our products without hassle or input from coders is one of our main goals.
Our goal is to simplify and reduce as much as possible. We try not to start our days by downloading yet another new framework. One of our core believes is to keep IT debt to a minimum and do things properly the first time instead of hacky solutions just to meet a deadline. We are building things that last. We strive to be independent and always critically evaluate if we truly need 3rd party dependencies in a project. We care deeply about security of our software and dependency management as well as secure coding practices are a big part of that. Simplify, reduce dependencies and back to the basics.
Technologies we mainly use in the frontend:
- Native Android and iOS
- Git, CI/CD
At least 3 years of experience in software development

How to apply
Do you like to solve complex challenges? Do you want to be part of Voima's mission of building gold-based financial services?
Send an open application to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV attached.
Voima is creating gold-backed banking services with a savings account that hold pure physical gold in our Helsinki vault. Our vision is to create the safest bank by leading the change to gold-based financial services. We find it exciting to create solutions both groundbreaking and long-lasting. As a company operating in the financial industry, it is our core duty to minimise counterparty risks and maximise the resilience of our services. Our aim is that nothing would be left to chance.
Voima's main product is the Voima Account. Voima Account is a savings account which combines the benefits of physical gold ownership and digital management. With Voima Account, the risks of the current fractional reserve system (such as counterparty exposure, currency devaluation and untransparent processes) have been reduced to a bare minimum, while the advantages of gold-based banking (such as asset ownership, liquidity, privacy and safety) have been brought to the fore. While Voima Account currently acts as a savings account, it is ultimately designed to challenge how banking services, like transactions and loans, are done in the main.
We require willingness to move to Finland.
