Software Developer, Virtual NOC, Elisa Polystar (Helsinki, Tampere or other)

Helsinki, Tampere

Apply by 28 August 2022

Software and IT Services, Finnish not required
Helsinki, Tampere

Would you like to join a growing team of professionals who are providing kick-ass automation solutions for international customers? 

Elisa Polystar is a part of Elisa's international business domain. We started our journey as an internal startup, and now we are becoming an ever-growing global success story. We managed to automate our own network so well that we now offer our automation solution to operators worldwide, to support them with automation in planning, operations and optimization of radio networks. Automating fairly complex things, to be frank. Virtual NOC is our solution for automating your Network Operation Center. 

We now want YOU on board to help build our business since we are growing faster than you can say "self-organized networks".  

We are looking for a Software Developer to strengthen our team and help us scale up our Virtual Network Operation Center (Virtual NOC) product. Elisa's NOC has been fully automated since 2010. Today, no one is required to operate the NOC, and we are now selling this solution to customers worldwide. 

You will be working closely with the customer and in addition of writing code you will serve as a bridge between the technology and the business side. You will focus on backend development. If preferred, your task could include travelling globally to visit customers when integrating our NOC in their systems.  

In order for you to succeed in the role, we expect you to have:   

  • Good technical skills as much as understanding of the business.   
  • You have worked with or very interested to learn the main technologies (Kotlin, Kafka, Kubernetes, ElasticSearch, Python, REST based Microservices for example) 
  • Previous working experience in agile development teams  
  • It is a big bonus if you are familiar with mobile network technologies (RAN)   
  • Having experience from public clouds or RAN OSS, is an advantage but not a requirement.

We are not your ordinary telco corporation. Working in our team is, according to the team members, very much like working in a startup - except you don't have to worry about the financial aspects.  

Our team is highly international, and our working language is English. Most of our team is based in Helsinki and Tampere, but like the rest of the elisians, we can work flexibly (in Finland) wherever and whenever it suits us best. Elisa is by proof one of the best places to work in Finland, and we can't wait for you to join us! Check out more reasons to join us. 

Sounds like your cup of tea? Shoot us an application as soon as possible and we will get in touch with you! For questions or further discussion, don't hesitate to get in touch with Otso Palonen (otso.palonen [at]
