Software developer, backend

Scroll to content

We’re looking to extend our in-house product team building our Home Services Platform with a software developer working at the core of our business in the backend. Freska’s product teams are cross functional, responsible for the end-to-end development and maintenance of their products while solving business cases through design, implementation and operations. You will initially become part of the service team. The service team is responsible for our internal tooling and algorithms, which are undergoing significant changes during 2021/2022.


Areas of responsibility:

You’ll have a key role in the development of our home services platform and related products. You will work in our team maintaining and developing backend technologies, whilst continually learning and participating in the full product cycle.



  • You will be actively developing new workforce management and optimization algorithms with maintainability, performance, configurability and scalability in mind.
  • You will be developing new services and features to make our workers and customers’ lives easier and our business work better.
  • You will actively support our products when it comes to e.g. changes to the data layer and API endpoints and everything in between.
  • You will help transition our legacy system to a modern service oriented architecture.
  • You will develop product thinking — you’ll work together with our product managers and users to understand the why and create solutions. 


Our stack and tooling today consists of Ruby microservices, Ruby on Rails (legacy backend), Elasticsearch, Postgres, Kafka, Redis, Terraform, Circle-CI, and Kubernetes running on Google Cloud. On the front-end we use React, Redux, GraphQL, and for mobile apps our choice is Flutter. 


The candidate we are looking for is someone who:

  • Has solid experience with Ruby
  • Thinks it's important to deliver easy to test, maintain and extend code
  • Believes in taking responsibility to fix things
  • Loves to dig deep into complex business logic
  • Fits well within the team dynamic and Freska culture
  • Thinks that many brains are better than one
  • Has a "Can do!" and positive mindset and willingness to learn


Bonus points for:

  • Experience with SQL, Kafka, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Google Cloud Platform, or other emerging and relevant technologies.
  • Full-stack mindset. Our team is small and we appreciate people who can help out when it is needed in other areas and feel positively challenged to step outside their comfort zone once in a while.


What we provide:

  • Challenges and growth — Become a part of one of the fastest growing companies in the Nordics building a home service platform.
  • Competitive compensation - A competitive salary, plus benefits.
  • Professional growth — International, talented team with lots of learning opportunities.
  • Clean home — 50% sponsorship of regular cleaning if you are in our service area.
  • A productive setup — Equipment of choice.
  • Convenience — Central headquarters in the heart of downtown Helsinki.
  • Great culture and lots of fun every day!
