Voima Is Hiring Software Developers and a UX Designer

Voima is currently hiring a lead software developer, senior developer as well as a UX designer to thier growing development team.

Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, Voima is one of the fast-growing fintech companies in Finland. Our core product is Voima Account, which is denominated in 999.9 gold, meaning that the account is fully backed by real, physical gold. We have over 1000 clients, from local institutional clients to regular savers from the Netherlands, USA & Saudi-Arabia to name a few. Just in few years, our team has built a highly secure, state of the art facility in Helsinki and developed our digital infrastructure to serve our clients.

In 2020, Voima released its latest version of the Voima Gold app for iOS and Android.

Our mission is to offer safe accounts to our clients, where they can trust that their hard earned savings are safe from burglars, hackers, money-launderers, bankruptcies and monetary policies.


What we are looking for

We are looking for experienced full-stack developers, and a UX designer to join our growing team in Helsinki.

We have successfully created software solutions for buying and selling gold and related backend systems. We also have prototypes and concepts for upcoming innovations. There will, therefore, be many future R&D projects involving innovative development along with front- and backend maintenance.

So far, we have outsourced our software development and UX design. With these positions, we will begin the “insourcing” of everything—all the software, code, data, etc.—that our outsourcing partners have developed for Voima.

Apply today. Send your CV and application in English as soon as possible: careers@voimagold.com.

We will start interviewing the candidates during the application period.


Lead developer and Senior developer

We are looking for experienced, full-stack software developers with skills including frontend (e.g., UI design, UX, CSS, JavaScript, HTML, React, as well as various UI frameworks) and backend development (e.g., Java, C, C++, Ruby, Go). You are also familiar with mobile app development for iOS and Android, and, thus, know the development setting and frameworks used to write software on those operating systems (e.g., Java, Swift, and Objective-C).

Besides building software by writing code, you will also update the software to fix errors, enhance its performance, or upgrade the user interface.

One of your very first assignments is to oversee the transitioning of Voima’s digital properties from our outsourced partners. For this tremendous undertaking, it is indispensable that you know how to familiarize yourself with the current software solutions quickly, understand the product, and can assess the code. You can recognize possible flaws in the design, code, or documentation, that needs fixing before moving development entirely in-house.

During the “move,” you also must verify there’s proper documentation on the software and its specifications, so that any future team-member, taking over the project, can use it to understand how the software works.

You can also verify whether the outsourced partners were adhering to international coding standards, using proper code commenting to ensure that any developer taking over the project(s) can understand quickly by looking at a piece of code, what it does.

If you’re the right fit, you will, as a part of the “insourcing” process, get the chance to build your team of developers.
