ERP System Architect

Helsinki, Finland

SprintIT is a rapidly growing consulting, service, and software company in the modern ERP market. Our solutions and services are based on the Odoo business apps and our own custom-made apps. One of SprintIT’s greatest strengths is that it is made up of people from different language areas and working cultures. With our 50 specialized consultants and developers spread across Finland and India, we are available for about 200 customers in Finland and Nordic countries every day.

We think the old closed systems are yesterday and the future lies in open-source solutions. We offer an interesting opportunity to be involved in building the business systems of the future, based on open Odoo technology. Do you want to become one of the Sprinters? With us, ERP is made easy.

 

Our growing Sprinter team needs more proactive and self-driven ERP System Architects! You understand the business needs of your customers and utilize this expertise in designing, defining, and implementing functionalities. Our programming language is Python, but relevant knowledge of another language is also a plus! Agile work methods have become familiar to you and working with clients is no stranger to you.

 

As an ERP System Architect, you would be part of a fixed project team. In the micro team, you get to know your colleagues and their ways of working. Are you looking for a new position where you can use your previous ERP experience and maybe have a new technical angle in your career? If so, we are happy to welcome you to the team!

 

Our customer base is wide and operates in various industries, so you can get involved in interesting and varied projects. Our Sprinter culture is based on continuous improvement and development. In this position, you get to influence your own job description and get to develop our operations.

 

Our IT responsibilities and the stack you will be working with:

 

  • Python programming in the MVC framework

  • PostgreSQL relational databases

  • Integration technologies such as HTTP, XML, XSL, JSON

  • Linux server environments

 

As an ERP System Architect, these are the things you’d get to work with:

 

  • Work closely with a fixed team that would include a Project Manager and Odoo Developer(s)

  • Take the customers’ requirements and design an Odoo solution to meet their needs

  • Understand the "Odoo way of doing things" to guide the requirements

This is something that would help you in the role:

  • You have seen what the work would be about, so the experience that would help you to be successful in the role

  • You will work with people so capability to work with other than machines only would be great!  

  • Learning mindset; you love to go and search all the new and cool stuff and bring them to the team(s)

  • Flexibility; This is what we have in mind right now, but time to time projects might need time-issued work and we hope we get your flexibility and priority skills when needed
