All in all, we are not just looking for a person for a specific position. We are looking for people who know their stuff, and who are passionate to learn more!

Here’s what Futurice boils down to:

People first— We strive for transparency and provide opportunities for our team to have an impact on their own work and the whole company. At Futurice you’re given autonomy and are trusted to make good decisions. Want X to get done? Discuss with your peers and then do X. Done. No bureaucracy.

Freedom and responsibility— Those are the two most important things on offer at Futurice, as far as quality of life goes. You’ll be given freedom to make your life here as rewarding as possible and to do things your way. You’ll be expected to take responsibility for your own work and how the company as a whole operates. And you’ll be heard. We value everyone’s input into how the company is run.

Experiment— Try new things. Drive what you are passionate about. Fail interestingly, succeed spectacularly. These are the sort of things we’ll give you a lot of leeway to do. We’re growing and changing as a company, so we want you to grow as a person and professional, too. We don’t want to stick you in a tightly prescribed role and say, “Stay!”. Whenever you need support, we’ll do all we can to help you move in the direction you want. At Futurice you’ll work side by side with world-class experts from other fields. We don’t build silos for tech, design, and advisory.

Opportunities— We have offices in four different countries (and growing), with employees of more than 30 nationalities. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to try different things - from projects to lifestyles. Futurice is in good shape. We are growing profitably and working to have a positive impact on the world. We work with major international corporations and build services used by millions of their customers in work and leisure. We have a social responsibility program where you can give back to the community, too. Would you like to come and help us? You’ll get a lot out of it yourself, too.
