“Courage takes us further” 

Are you an aspiring IT professional and willing to broaden your skill set? Join YIT! We will give you the best tools for success, and by collaborating closely, we will strive for better business. 

In this position, you will be working as a summer trainee in YIT’s Business Technology organization. As a member of Business Technology, you will work either in development projects, as part of our data & analytics team, or in our service management organization. Overall, we provide and develop IT services globally to YIT subsidiaries and business segments operating in different countries. 

But this is not all, after a successful period as a summer trainee, we might have a new offer for you. 

As digitalization is affecting construction industry on a global scale more than ever before, we started our digital talent trainee program in 2021.  Based on our excellent experience we decided to continue the program. This means that summer trainees who are capable and willing to continue work at YIT will get a fixed term contract for the digital talent trainee program.  

This contract will, however, be unlike others. It's twofold: you will not only work at YIT, but also study things that are relevant for your future. As a member of the program, we will teach you new skills together with our partners. These include but are not limited to analytics, AI, low-coding, APIs, integrations, Azure and Service Management. You will naturally also learn the basics of the construction industry. 

Are you the future star we are looking for? 

You will succeed in this role when you are motivated to develop your skills and able to work both independently and as part of a team. You have good communication skills at least in English. Finnish skills are preferred but not mandatory and Swedish and Central & Eastern European languages are valued.  

We expect you to be a graduate or soon-to-be graduate from University or from University of Applied Sciences with good grades. Previous work experience in the IT field is preferred but not mandatory. Studies or experience in application development, system design, UX design, requirement analysis, analytics, AI/ML, RPA, Databases, Public Cloud, ITSM, ITIL, SAFe and Scrum are seen as an advantage. 

Why YIT? 

In our large company, you will get broad opportunities for developing your own competences. You will get to work with our professionals, learn from challenges and take your skills to the next level every day. Even on tougher days, you can be sure to have the support of a large company and a close and dedicated team to get you through all challenges. 

Why do we do this, you might ask? The answer is simple. We will show respect to your talent if you show cooperation, passion and creativity. We are more than willing to discuss how our journey could continue after the fixed term period based on your achievements. YIT’s motto is "Together we can do it" and it would be great to go on this journey together. The first step of this journey is to submit your application to our Business Technology summer trainee period, or with this application you can also apply directly to our Digital Talent program starting in the autumn.
