Open Positions


Mobile developer wanted to work on the 21st century Moonshot phenomenon!

Cohu Experience is looking for a mobile developer to join the ambitious team creating Space Nation in Helsinki, Finland. Our team is building an Astronaut Training Program together with NASA astronaut trainers. At the core of this astronaut experience is a smartphone app targeted towards global markets. Through the Space Nation Astronaut Program, anyone can train like an astronaut and have the chance to travel to space – for real.

We are now looking for a bright star who wants to help someone achieve the dream of going to space.

In order to execute this vision, we need to grow our team of best-in-class engineers. The ideal candidate is a team player, but has the initiative to take on projects independently. You are receptive to feedback and an open collaborator who prioritizes the success of the team. You are constantly learning, and using new tools and technology to broaden your skill set as a developer. You care deeply about user experience, and refuse to ship a product that is mediocre for our users.

As an experienced iOS dev, you will lead the design, development, and deployment of innovative solutions using the latest mobile-based tools and technologies. Our iOS Developers work in conjunction with Software Engineers, Web Developers, and Creative Developers.

You will help maintain our shared internal frameworks - and create some of your own. You’ll get to actively participate in product decisions, ensuring we set reasonable development deadlines and create quality user experiences.

You might or might not have a computer science degree; more important is that you are an established professional with published examples of mobile applications. You have experience in techniques that support the latest iOS features while providing backwardly compatible alternatives. Swift will be second nature to you, as will custom iOS animations. You’re at home working with backend REST APIs and complex data structures. It would be great if you also know Unity and Javascript.

We offer you a chance to participate in creating a never-before-seen space phenomenon. You’ll help create awesome apps from start to finish with a super talented and easy-going team. And you’ll be co-operating with the best stakeholders and brands on the planet. Ultimately, you’ll leave your mark while democratizing space for humankind through e-learning. What else can you ask for?

How about a salary? We expect to pay you 4300-4700€/month depending on your skills and experience. If you feel this is incorrect, let us know what you would think a correct remuneration would be and why. We are willing to reconsider our position if you can present your case convincingly.

This position is based in Helsinki, and we are unfortunately not able to accept applications from candidates who do not have valid work permits.

If you think you’re the perfect fit for us, please send your application to jobs@cohuent.com. These moon boots will be filled as soon as we find the right astronaut to fill them, so send your application today!
