About Advian

Advian is Finland’s fastest growing company in advanced analytics. Advian was born in early 2019 when a group of top professionals got frustrated to see how the big words such as AI, big data and advanced analytics were misused for forced sale of consultation hours.

We want to be the company in the field of advanced analytics that creates the most genuine added value for its customers. We have a business-oriented and technology-agnostic approach to our work and bring intelligence into business processes. Our superpowers are Edge AI as well as the supreme management of location intelligence and external data sources.

Our values are cooperation, courage, and commitment. We want our employees to enjoy, develop and succeed in their work. That’s why we measure job satisfaction with the Employee Net Promoter Score every single month. If you are willing to work for common success, you will surely get the recognition you deserve.

At Advian, sky is not the only limit – but our own goals and dreams.

We are looking for a skilled and experienced GIS Data Architect to join our team.

As a hands-on GIS data architect you design and lead the implementation of location enabled architectures and solutions for our customers. Based on your own interest, you can also participate in pre-sales activities and our R&D projects.

What we are looking for

You are used to working with different GIS technologies (open source, ArcGIS, Mapbox, Here etc.) and you understand how to maximize the power of location intelligence. You’re familiar with designing business-driven architectures – by enriching existing data warehouses with geospatial data, not by isolating it in its own silo.

  • Logistics & transportation: graph analytics and modeling
  • Real-time analytics and data streaming
  • 3D data management and analysis: pointclouds, mesh models
  • Remote sensing and image processing
  • Processing and publishing geospatial data at a scale

Required experience:

  • Designing robust data pipelines
  • Relational databases, data modelling, configuring and designing
  • Server-side programming with languages such as Python, Go and Node
  • Good understanding of best software development practices
  • Working with GIS technologies, using and defining APIs
  • Cloud platforms like Azure or AWS, Docker and DevOps
  • Good Finnish and English skills

The following skills will be considered as a plus:

  • Front-end frameworks, such as modern JavaScript frameworks
  • Hands on experience with drones with LiDAR or camera sensors
  • Indoor positioning
  • Cloud tooling and frameworks, such as Terraform, SAM, Serverless or Ansible
  • FME Server
  • Data analytics and spatial algorithms

This is how you succeed with us

You feel Advian's values as your own and you work with a big heart. You are a self-guided pioneer, but also able to cooperate. You recognize your own boundaries and know how to both accept help and help your co-workers succeed.

We offer you this 

You get a rare opportunity to be involved in building the dream of a better work environment and a truly new business. Advian is determinedly looking for growth. We already have many large Finnish companies from several different industries as our customers and we’re currently entering the international markets.

In addition to a competitive and encouraging salary model, you get extensive employment benefits:

  • Truly flexible work
  • The tools needed to succeed at work

  • Sports and culture benefits
  • Commuting benefit
