Our office is located within a walking distance from downtown Tampere. Due to COVID you can start working remotely, but due to the highly collaborative nature of the work we expect you to be able to work at the office in the future.

If you think that this description matches you, we highly encourage you to apply as soon as possible as we will interview candidates continuously. If you don’t match all the requirements, please demonstrate how your passion, attitude and interest in Iceflake and Paradox might compensate for this.
