Scrum Master / Developer


Want to improve your agile and leading skills together with your current developer skills? Do you dream of working with products that truly improve the quality of life for people across the globe? Great, because we have a job opening for you!


Who is Topcon?

Topcon Healthcare Solutions EMEA is part of Topcon Healthcare Corporation. We specialise in providing modern software solutions for eye care (e.g. optical stores, eye clinics). Our primary target is to offer the whole workflow from the clinical device connection to archiving and telemedicine. Our solutions have been designed in cooperation with physicians and other healthcare professionals to provide excellent usability and performance. Our customers are optical retailers, clinics and hospitals.

Topcon Healthcare sees eye health differently. Our vision is to empower providers with smart, value-driven and efficient technologies for enhanced care. Keeping pace with the ever-changing landscape of the healthcare industry, Topcon Healthcare offers the latest integrated solutions, including advanced multimodal imaging, vendor-neutral data management and ground-breaking remote diagnostic technology.


What kind of work is this?

As a ScrumMaster/Developer, you will have a valued and important role in designing the next generation of remote healthcare solutions. You will lead by example the growing self-organizing team of five to ten developers and few test engineers. Depending on your own interests and skills, you can work in one of our growing SightPilot or Topcon Harmony teams. Teams are free to develop their own processes.

Other teams and specialists – software testers, product owners, other developers and Scrum Masters, and product and operations teams – are always happy to help you. We also have other scrum masters who will guide you along the way. Daily meets, retrospectives, grooming, planning and other workshops are done together with others. Whereas your closest colleagues are working at our Oulu site, you might also be co-working with people at our other premises at Helsinki and New Jersey and as well in Japan and other countries. Even though you are working as a ScrumMaster of one product there are other ScrumMasters and ProductOwners in the organization and together you will share knowledge and best practices on your Agile workshops.

Your workplace is located in the centre of Oulu in our modern and recently renovated office. Instead of working in an open-plan office, concentration is supported by smaller team rooms for six people. You can also work remotely on a regular basis.


Why should I apply for a job at Topcon Healthcare Solutions?

You can come here as you are. We appreciate all personality types and truly believe that a good team consists of a wide range of different, unique characters. Our team of over 60 professionals in Finland has a relaxed atmosphere, and we think that a bit of humour makes work a lot easier.

You will be involved in a great workplace with a start-up atmosphere. You will sense the enthusiasm and can-do attitude while our global parent company brings stability and supports our product development and growth. Our team is at the cutting edge of the software and technology industry and is constantly following industry trends.

You don’t have to get stuck in your career development, because you’ll have a chance to learn new skills and take on new responsibilities. We are growing fast and you can grow with us to the role of scrum master, for example. In addition, we offer you job rotation options between and within our functions.

In return for your input we offer you a competitive salary, bonus program and benefits such as a lunch benefit, education program, sports and culture vouchers and leisure-time insurance.


What do you expect from me?

People with varying expertise of ScrumMastery can apply, but the ideal candidate would already know what Scrum means and how to lead a Scrum team. Would have some ideas of best practices and how those can be put into use. We are also willing to provide you courses to study Scrum even further and if you feel that Scrum is not the best way to go forward, we are happy to evolve our processes into better. Also, if you already have some knowledge of what Agile means on Medical Device development, we would be more than happy.

You don’t necessarily need to have a background in healthcare. We offer you the possibility to deepen your knowledge with training held by our in-house eye care professionals.

Good teamwork skills are mandatory in this role, because you will collaborate a lot with your colleagues. As our official company language is English, we expect you to have good English skills. In addition, Finnish language skills are required.
