Career development and learning

We believe in investing in the professional development of our employees and offer a diverse variety of career paths. In 2020, we adopted the five-step OP Specialist Career model, which is designed to support employees’ professional development as experts. It offers an alternative to the traditional way of seeing career advancement through managerial duties and promotions. As an OP employee, you can set your own area of expertise with your supervisor and identify which skills you need to take to the next step as a professional. 

70/20/10 Model  

We use the 70/20/10 model for learning and development. In the model, working hours are divided as follows: 

70% on daily assignments 

20% on developing work methods to improve efficiency 

10% on competence development and learning new. 

In other words, as an OP employee, you get to use 10% of your daily hours to study topics such as cloud services, business studies or a new programming language. At OP, learning and professional development are a major part of our work to help make daily tasks more efficient and meaningful. 

OP Software Academy 

OP Software Academy is OP’s in-house competence development centre. It offers courses that allow you to expand your skills or try out a totally new area of technology. Most courses are designed to fit into the competence development section of the 70/20/10 model, meaning that you can complete them while during working hours! 

Career opportunities

At OP, you get to be a part of developing services used by millions of people in Finland. We offer opportunities for varied assignments with both new and established technologies. We are one of Finland’s largest software firms and also offer career paths in cyber security, software development, and data management. Positions offered by OP include Solution Analyst, Reliability Engineer, Test Engineer, Product Owner, Developer and Data Scientist

The journey of change involves the entire company and every employee

There’s an enormous number of interesting things happening at OP. The changes in finance and our own operational culture require all of us at OP to keep an open mind, continuously develop our expertise, navigate the latest trends in technology and have the courage to observe and have an impact on our shared working methods.

Read what Jyrki, Sirkku and Jaakko have to say about their work in development:

‘The work that I do has an impact on that done by many other people. I get to be involved in the early stages of projects, when the major strategics decisions are made, and have the opportunity to think about the bigger picture. I’ve seen my own expertise develop massively not only in a technological sense, but also in terms of the economics and management aspects of this line of work.”

Jyrki Puttonen, Product Owner

“I have always been allowed to be my curious self and grasp new kinds of opportunities. My current role as a developer of expertise is a new one for our tribe. My job is to maintain our expertise and develop it now and in the future.”

Sirkku Ikäheimo, Competence Lead

“My team’s skills, motivation, commitment and shared sense of humour inspire me most as a team leader. It’s a privilege for me to be involved in the building of Finland’s best and fastest chatbot for our banking customers.”

Jaakko Sävilammi, Chapter Lead
