Voima is always looking for capable developers. You will be working in a small team of in-house developers with a wide range of differing skills. Our development team follows the SCRUM method. We have lots of options what to work on and interesting problems to solve related to many different fields in front of and behind the scenes.
We aim for healthy KPIs to track development: we feel like, for example, measuring work by hours does not reflect developer productivity, neither does the number of closed tickets. It is somewhere in between.
The challenges we face in the backend vary from scaling of global transaction processing to issues of double spending, cryptography, identity management, automatically scaling systems and many others. In the user experience side, we are creating pixel-perfect and easy-to-use interfaces that people enjoy and want to use on their computers or mobile devices.
Our goal is to simplify and reduce as much as possible—we try not to start our days by downloading yet another new framework. We try to keep the IT debt to a minimum and do things properly the first time, instead of contriving hacky solutions just to meet a deadline. We strive to be independent and always critically evaluate if we truly need third-party dependencies in a project. We care deeply about security of our software and we follow secure coding practices.
In short: Simplify, reduce dependencies and get back to the basics.
As regards to tech stack, here are some of the technologies we use:

Voima provides gold-backed banking services with a savings account that holds pure physical gold in our Helsinki vault. Our mission 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.
Voima's main product is 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 banking system (such as untransparent processes) have been reduced to a bare minimum, while the advantages of gold-based banking (such as asset ownership, 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.
