How about reading a new job ad, while social distancing! …. Are you a veteran coder who doesn’t necessarily need to code at the moment, preferring rather system design/architecture and even evaluating / procurement of large heavy scale software products? (coding will happen later). I’m guessing you are comfortably settled in your new work-from-home arrangement, now that you have a year’s supply of toilet paper? And now that you are in your most comfy chair and have the peace to concentrate on your current well-being in your current job, you are likely surfing the web for something better, right? Enter: Working at OP as a Software Developer!

Last year OP began a fascinating cultural transformation, embarking on an overall path towards Agile, dubbed OP Ketterä. While we continue getting closer and closer to ‘tribe’ and team autonomy, our focus has simultaneously headed towards technical alignment and sustainable development, building a real engineering and developer culture. Less a bank and more a technology house, we have started seeing tangible improvements and increased efficiencies, while our internal cohesion and fulfillment is actually, joyous! Imagine that. 


One of the strongest points to mention about joining OP’s future as technology house is about balance: coming to work here is easy in that you will have balance, between work and life. Need to work from home one day? Need to leave by 3 to pick up your kid? Need to come in early so you can join your running club in the afternoon while its still light out? OP is the right place for you. We work to live It’s in our Values: People First.

No niin, our Tribe:

Insurance platform transformation program. In our program tribe we are transforming our insurance business into a new platform handling insurances, billing & collections and claims. We support insurance business transformation with new services and automated back-end processes, while replacing the legacy systems over next several years. We are also replacing many supporting systems around the core systems, which provides a good understanding of our complex IT landscape.


We are looking for two Lead Developers; Claims Management and Policy Management Teams. In this demanding Lead Developer role, you need to be prepared to design system architecture, drive development, code, and handle the more technical aspects of a vendor relationship. Primarily, architecture, data flows and implementing integrations to the purchased system from OP legacy systems. You will also lead multiple developers, maybe even the whole Scrum team if you are willing and able. That, in a nutshell, is the job!

We pay attention to these professional competencies:

  • Experience from large system renewal programs
  • Work experience of Java Technologies
  • Experience from configuring commercial products
  • Experience from insurance, banking and financial domain
  • Experience of mentoring software team and being the spiritual Leader
  • Knowledge of Guidewire Insurance Suite solutions is a huge asset
  • Fluent English language skills, Finnish is an asset

You will lead the vision of technical things with normal technical work, problem solving and in analyzing production problems while we constantly improve our methods. You will get to influence how we work, not just what we are building. You will work with several other highly talented teams of developers, with plenty of opportunity for you to think and practice what you’ve learned.


Who are you?


You understand architecture, you know how to lead technical development. You are a versatile developer from a wide background, and you are excellent at designing, coding. You have strong interest in improving quality and processes related to the development of technology solutions. You need to understand how to design and implement good APIs. You are interested in figuring out how the whole system works, across multiple teams.
