Career Compass 2024 application period has ended.

Thank your for your application!
Career Compass-kompassi

Digia Career Compass guides you and helps you start your career path.

Are you interested in starting a career in the software industry and looking for a suitable career path? Are you looking for a job where you can learn continuously and develop as an expert? Do you want to work as part of an enthusiastic and skilled team that supports you on your journey?

Career Compass is suitable for you if you have just graduated or are graduating from a lower or higher university degree suitable for the role and looking for junior level jobs. If you have completed a short IT-related training, you should also have about a year of work experience in a suitable field. You also can work at least 3 days a week permanently.

Through Career Compass, you will be employed directly at Digia in a junior role, from where you will start your own career and learning path towards more experienced roles according to your level. This is not a training course, but your skills will grow alongside and in real work projects with the support from your team. Depending on the role, you will work either in our customer projects or in internal development.

Although we require that you already have some experience, we want you to have a passion to learn more, as every Digian is a Senior Trainee. We have a habit of saying that the work always gets completed, but we won’t be. This means a philosophy of continuous learning. At Digia we have the opportunity to grow, develop and also to be unsure. Here you have the permission to be cleverly unfinished.

What does Career Compass offer you?

When you don’t know something yet, at Digia you get to learn and teach it also to other. You get help, support, and a team to help you, from start to finish. You learn and unlearn by doing, especially with our team. Wisdom lives in the teams and in sharing, and here with us doing things together and the journey together is the main point.

At Digia, the salary is ensured to be equal for everyone starting and that is why we guarantee a minimum of 2500 € monthly salary for all junior technical roles. However, the average for those who started in Career Compass last time was higher, as the final starting salary is determined by the skills, role requirements, previous work experience and stage of studies. In addition, as a Digian, you can use our comprehensive employee benefits. Learn more about our employee benefits from here.

Support along the way is important and we offer a comprehensive orientation, as well as onboarding buddy and support from your supervisor. In addition, you will be part of Digia’s community of experts. That’s over 1400 colleagues. All roles are negotiable full-time or part-time, depending on your situation, and the start is also negotiable, but starting in spring 2024. We offer flexibility in working hours, for example, alongside studies, so please indicate on your application what kind of working hours you hope to work. The work requires immersion, especially at the beginning, so you should be possible to work at least 3 days a week. Remote work is also possible in many roles after orientation, as Digians work in a hybrid environment.
