(Senior) Software Engineer, Aviation Weather

We are looking for a (Senior) Software Engineer to join our growing team working with the aviation weather solutions at the Vaisala office at Vantaa with flexible hybrid-work possibilities.  


Vaisala and our innovative measurement solutions impact where it truly matters, helping to solve climate change and other global challenges of our time. We are a global leader in weather and industrial measurements, and our technologies can be found in demanding environments from hospitals, national parks, and data centers to airports and wind farms all over the world – even on Mars!  


You will be part of our community consisting of many hundred software developers. Together with a focused cross-functional team, you will have a chance to take our aviation weather solution AviMet to the next level.   




AviMet is scalable and highly configurable weather observing, monitoring, and reporting software and the foundation of Vaisala’s market-leading position in the global aviation weather business.  
Pilots, air traffic controllers, forecasters, and observers need accurate weather information in real-time to ensure safe and efficient flight operations at airports. AviMet obtains data from sensors and remote sensing devices and provides information to all the stakeholders at an airport to support better decision-making and improved safety and efficiency.  




You would be creating a high-quality, easy-to-maintain, next-generation weather solution. The team uses a rotating tester hat amongst developers to make space for focused system-level learning to build great quality. You also would be participating in planning future steps for our solution. We are currently working to create a major version update with a fresh tech stack including, e.g., React/Typescript, Python, and RabbitMQ. The architecture of the new version is based on APIs, microservices, and events. We value constant learning and maintaining great team spirit.   




  • Equal opportunities for all: We have no gender pay gap, and as a global company diversity of people is one of the cornerstones of our success.   

  • Space-proof and science-based technology: We are known for the greatest reliability and quality, and our instruments are even exploring Mars onboard the Mars rovers. This is enabled by our strong and consistent focus on R&D that secures our position as the technology and market leader. In 2021, we invested 13% of our net sales into R&D.  

  • Sustainability leader: We are on the top of the Financial Times’ list of European climate leaders; we are #1 in a sustainability study that rates Finnish listed companies based on their environmental, social, and corporate governance performance. Finnish private investors also voted Vaisala as the most sustainable listed company in Finland.  




  • Great software development skills with several programming languages.  

  • Currently, we use React/Typescript for front and Python for backend  

  • Strong experience in developing, releasing, and maintaining software products  

  • Experience in designing, creating, and maintaining APIs 

  • Linux and scripting knowhow  

  • Interest in software quality and testing. We consider testing to be an integral skill for software developers  

  • Constant curious learner -attitude and excellent teamwork and communication skills  

  • Fluent spoken and written English, speaking Finnish is not mandatory  


Additional skills we find beneficial, but not a must to have, are modern databases (SQL, NoSQL), CI (Gitlab), experience in developing high availability systems, Docker, Kubernetes, and Windows servers. 

Leading performance, not location. Our culture is trust-based. We treasure face-to-face collaboration with our colleagues, but hybrid work and flexibility are the new norm for us.   

The recruitment process consists of 2 meetings, including a discussion with the development team members. You will also get a chance to prove your technical skills by investing a maximum of 2 hours of your time. The process also includes a security clearance obtained for the persons with their consent.  

For additional information please contact Development Manager Maaret Pyhäjärvi (   

If you are interested, apply at the latest on 31st of March, 2023 via the application form.
