Would you like to chat about tech or design over a cup of coffee?

Sure thing!

“I love the challenges and flexibility in my role. We've succeeded in developing a machine vision system that’s been tried for 30 years.”

Jaakko Palokangas
Team lead, Intelligent Automation

// Your team

We are a software development team of over thirty software professionals, building digital solutions for Outotec customers around the globe. We create advanced sensors for our machines, automate and simulate our processes, connect them all to the cloud to enable analytics, machine learning and digital twin solutions.

Bit by bit, we bring modern software and design practices to a relatively conservative industry, where our people have a real impact.

// Your tech & design stack

For all things web & cloud, we use Azure cloud services, build backends and API's with C# and Node.js, fronts with TypeScript and React. Execution-critical systems, desktop tools and sensor solutions we develop on .NET with a modular architecture and queue-based interfaces. Throw in a bit of ML magic with Python and we're done!

We use a modern design stack. As part of our Design system, we use Sketch UI Kit libraries and Abstract version control that combined help us move fast forward from prototypes to finished design while maintaining consistency.

We don’t expect you to know everything. Having a passion for learning and improving is the key. We support learning by giving you the time and resources to go to conferences and take courses to develop as a professional.
