What our client can offer you:

  • Fastlane for a technical growth as you are working among the best in their field
  • Ambitious mission that is already challenging the big players in cloud business
  • “No-egos-here”-culture
  • Cool office at the heart of Helsinki, Finland
  • Possibility for stock options and nice set of benefits on top of the monthly salary

You will be part of a talented team of around 40 people, making your contribution essential to a truly great success story. The salary range for this job is 5000-7500 euros per month depending on the skills you have. The position is filled as soon as the right person is found.
