Project Manager

We are looking for a Project Manager to join our team in Turku.

Your tasks would be consisting of coordinating small software development projects and making sure we meet, and often, exceed our customers' expectations. You will also work as the direct supervisor for a small team of developers.

This is what your day might look like:

You start with checking your emails and seeing if there's anything that has come up while you were away. At the moment, you have two projects to run, one of the customers is from the USA and the other one from Germany. One of your customers has requested an additional feature to the software we are building, so you need to figure out, how that will affect the project's budget and schedule. You take up the customer's request at the team's daily meeting and ask for the team's input on the request. It seems like the feature would compromise the production deadline the team is working on. Next up, you call the customer's product owner and discuss the feature and its effect on the budget and schedule - we really need to drop something from the current release backlog, if the requested feature is needed by the next production deadline.

A third project is being initiated, so the afternoon you will be working with sales support and the customer to provide reliable development estimates and project timeline.

At the end of the day, you update your projects' burndown charts, make sure we are on track and on budget. Since it's Friday, you also write up the weekly progress reports and submit those to the customers before switching off for the weekend. Today also happens to be your team's team event where you go out and challenge yourself in game of "escape room" and have some fun with your teammates.

To succeed as our Project Manager, we expect you to have

  • A technical background in software development, many of our customers are highly technical and you need to be able to speak the same language with them and our developers
  • Proven track record of leading small software development projects for external customers
  • Good people skills and experience of being a supervisor
  • Excellent planning and organizing skills, ability to prioritize and manage tasks effectively
  • Excellent communication, presentation and client-facing skills in English
  • Experience in agile methods (Scrum) and working with remote teams would be a good addition to your skill set

Our Project Manager role is an interesting combination of software development project management, working with our international customers as well as being a supervisor for a team of developers.

I ended up at Vaadin because of all the interesting possibilities it had to offer. I'm lucky to have been able do so many things here as a Vaadin expert, project manager, consultant and now also as a team leader.

I'd say I'm open, willing to try new things and have a strong technological orientation. I feel passionate about software architecture and agile methods. As a project manager, good communication and organizing skills are essential. You need to be able to interact both with the client and your team and of course also get your team to interact with each other.

Because of my work I've also had a chance to travel a lot. I recently counted that last year I spent time in 13 different airports. I've been in Europe, the US and Africa. It was pretty exciting to give a speech to hundreds of people in a developer conference JMaghreb in Morocco!

It's great that you can actually influence what the company offers to its clients. I also want to have an influence on how people experience their own work – I think it's very meaningful that people enjoy what they do.

Why should you apply here? Vaadin is growing and constantly better known. It's an international open source Java house with a prominent product. If you want to do more than just the basic stuff, make your mark and go further in your career, this is the place.

I came to Finland from Spain in 2011 to work in mobile services. My first encounter with Vaadin was a little later in a student fair held in Aalto University where Vaadin was recruiting. I talked to the VP of Services and went to a couple of interviews – and here I am!

I'm a part of the Global Sales team. Basically I take care of clients and sell Vaadin's expertise to companies worldwide. In my job you need to be social and open-minded to be able to both listen to and assist companies in a variety of topics mainly related to their different needs on building their web apps.

I would describe Vaadin as an awesome place to work: we have a lot of talented people here and the atmosphere is very open. Here you are able to get results. The management gives you real support and ensures that you are properly recognized and rewarded for what you do. They also genuinely believe in a proper balance between work and personal life. When I'm not at work, I'm enjoying life with my family: I have a wife and a baby girl.

Why did I come to Finland in the first place? Well, I was looking for an international experience and a great place to develop myself both professionally and personally. It's really rewarding to be able to save companies' time and money on software development and let them concentrate on their core business. At Vaadin you really feel you are contributing to something bigger!

How I came to Vaadin? A coder I know came to work at Vaadin and he seemed to like it so much that I asked if they needed a sparkling personality and a Jack-of-all-trades. The answer was yes. My responsibilities are marketing communication and its coordination. Vaadin has been missing a female user interface and that's what I am.

I enjoy working at Vaadin because of the youthful and open spirit, technology and co-workers. The work environment is really important to me: here you get to be who you are. The code is based on openness – just like the organization. This is a great policy.

The mood is really positive. My colleagues are hard-core coders, nerds, funny, different, ironic and helpful – a whole bunch of great personalities. I get to work with real rockstars!

I see Vaadin as more than just an open source technology: I see it as a company, a tool and an organization. Every day brings something new to the table. My time at Vaadin has been a learning experience. I've begun to understand the Java world and how user interfaces work.

In my free time I drive a Vespa LX 50, float in a swimming pool and watch too many films. I also have two cats called Lillis and Nanna-kissa. They drive me mad, but I love them anyway.

I believe you can learn from every person you meet. When you keep your mind open, success and other good things will come your way!

I see Vaadin as more than just an open source technology: I see it as a company, a tool and an organization.

Vaadin and I just "clicked": The company is small enough that I can remember everyone's name, the management is approachable and easy to talk with, and I'm given the freedom and responsibility to do my job the way I think is best. Those are really the most important qualities I look for in an employer.

As a designer, I'm responsible for the user experience and usability of the software I help build. This requires good communication skills to get the right information from clients. You also need to be able to take criticism and not be afraid to show what you are working on, even when it's not finished yet. It's just really essential for everyone involved to communicate often and well. Thankfully, though, our work environment also allows me to concentrate without distractions, as well as take regular breaks – two things that I find absolutely necessary in a job like this.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I moved to Finland in 2007 to look for an adventure. Instead, I found love and met my wife. We like living in Turku, because it's neither too small nor too big. In that way, it's very much like Vaadin.

I'm given the freedom and responsibility to do my job the way I think is best.

I'm a sporty nerd who seeks new technologies. Earlier I worked in a smaller software company and studied IT in the university. A headhunter contacted me through LinkedIn and I got interested in developing my career at Vaadin.

During the first month I was in a training project, which was a good introduction to the tools. I also had a tutor. I currently work as a developer in a team of four guys in Services. Agile development is the key! In the future it would be interesting to widen my job description and get a chance to work in the R&D team or as a project manager.

In my work, I need versatile software knowledge, I have to learn what different browsers are capable of and how to create appealing user interfaces. I also need to understand the problems, think quickly and be eager to find solutions.

As a workplace Vaadin is open, skilled and constantly evolving. The work environment here is really good and in fact, Vaadin has been successful in many "Great places to work" listings. Another big reason for me to work here is the whole open source mentality.

Both my work and my most treasured hobby, climbing, offer interesting challenges. I have been climbing in Jordan, Åland Islands and the French Alps. I find new energy at the mountaintops!
