As a Software Engineer joining our team, you will help build our software services:

  • Kausal Paths, a simulation platform for forecasting how a city develops over time especially in relation to greenhouse gas emissions, but also including financial, health, and social equity impact of climate actions.

  • Kausal Watch, which helps a city coordinate and monitor climate work, making the implementation of a city's climate action plan more efficient. Real-time dashboards and collaborative data updates reduce the overhead related to managing, communicating and reporting on the climate actions publicly.

  • You are a Python specialist or a polyglot generalist. You understand what an AST is, you are happy doing metaprogramming, and you are able to craft pragmatic data models and make informed architecture decisions with ease. You approach development with Care and Quality.

  • You are — or are willing to get — comfortable with data crunching and scientific modeling.

  • You learn fast and are able to independently study new technologies.

  • You want your skills to be used for tackling the climate crisis.

  • You communicate clearly and understand the value of shared team-wide learning. Our working language is English.

  • You have familiarity with open-source software development practices. Ideally, your GitHub profile is already populated with commits.

What we offer:

  • Meaningful work with an international team of passionate, brilliant and empathetic people.

  • The possibility to focus on creating only open-source software (OSS) code. Our products are licensed under the AGPLv3.

  • A transparent and fair working environment with low hierarchy.

  • Flexible working hours. Nordic work-life balance.

  • Finland salary level based on your skills and experience. Access to option program.

Our tech stack consists mainly of Python, TypeScript+React+NextJS, GraphQL, PostgreSQL, Polars/Pandas and Kubernetes. We use 99 % free software components.

We are open for candidates in all regions with a possibility to start working immediately. The work can be done fully remotely.
