Futurice Academy

Futurice Academy is a special four month paid training program for “soon to be graduated” students and career changers. The Academy period will consist of extensive studies and project work in one of our client or internal projects - or perhaps a bit of both. Work times are flexible and you get to work full-time, alongside an experienced cross-disciplinary team to learn the craft of modern software consulting. Kick-start your future career journey with us.

Q: Can I work part-time or is this only a full-time position?

This is a full-time opportunity.

Q: What happens after the Academy period?

There is a chance to continue your Futurice journey after the trainee period.

Q: Is this a paid internship?

Yes. We invest in your learning and you will get a fixed monthly compensation.

Q: Is there a remote work option?

Our office locations are Tampere, Helsinki, Berlin, Munich and Stuttgart. We have a hybrid working mode depending on the team, so occasional work from home might be possible. We don’t offer relocation or remote work opportunities outside our offices.

Q: Is the homework assignment mandatory?

No. But we expect to see some of your past projects before the interview, so we want to give everyone a chance to demonstrate their skill set. We recommend doing the assignment if there is no other project available to share with us. We use your project(s) or assignment as part of the assessment process when we decide who we select for the interview round.

Q: Do I have to send a transcript of my studies? Is it mandatory?

A transcript is not mandatory. We give you the option to send a transcript of your studies if you feel that it gives relevant additional information about your skillset that you can’t otherwise provide. As we welcome people with different backgrounds to apply to our Academy program, consider your own situation. The minimum application document requirements are a CV, cover letter and project or homework assignment.

Q: What do you mean by “some experience”?

We hope you already had a chance to apply your software development or data specialist skills in some projects. It can be a school or a hobby project or maybe even some real project from your past internships.

Q: What is the time allocation between training and project work?

Most of the learning happens in projects. Of course, the situation is different between the projects, but we expect you to spend at least 30% of your time on various training activities during the Academy.
