Join Nortal as a junior Java developer!

Now is no time to hibernate in your holiday sweater! Nortal is on the hunt for fresh junior Java developers to join our growing team in Tallinn or Tartu. This is your chance to jump ahead of the summer hiring wave and start working with the industry’s best. No experience is expected – just sign up for the test and show us what you’ve got.


How it works?

Step 1: Test

DEC. 17 – JAN. 13

The test task will become available on Dec. 17. The task is your opportunity to show us what you’ve got and receive valuable feedback. We understand this will be a busy time for you, so we’re giving you up to four weeks to solve the task (it actually takes much less). But don’t forget that competition is fierce. If you register earlier, the test task will be sent to your email on Dec. 17; otherwise, you will receive the task via email when you sign up. Registration for our winter recruitment drive ends at noon Jan. 12. But the test task deadline is Jan. 13, so we strongly recommend you register well before that.

Step 2: Meetings

JAN. 21 – JAN. 25

Top performers in the test task are invited to our office for group interviews, which take place at the end of January. These meetings allow our hiring teams to get to know you better before making the final decisions and choosing candidates for their projects.

Step 3: Training & work


Successful applicants begin their Nortal experience in February with a contract, a salary and intensive training in Tallinn to give you the tools you’ll need for the job. This will be your chance to learn from the best of the best while getting to know your peers. Immediately after, you will join one of Nortal’s ongoing projects where, under the close eye of your personal mentor, you’ll start working and building your exciting new career.


Competitive salary

Nortal firmly believes in fair compensation for your work, so we’ll provide you a contract and salary from day one.

Meaningful work

Here’s your opportunity to make a genuine impact. Most of our work centers on large-scale Estonian e-government projects, the kind that improve the lives of countless ordinary people. For this reason, we generally look for fluent Estonian speakers, but we also have a limited number of positions available for candidates who speak English instead.


Fantastic environment

Joining our team, you’ll become part of an active developer community that likes to share knowledge and experience … and the occasional pizza. We’re a positive-minded group that’s always ready to help you carry out your ideas as well as motivate you to learn and grow. If you’re a team player who can communicate with ease, you’ll fit right in.

Great conditions

Many of our new recruits have school or other commitments, so we offer flexible working hours and the possibility to work from home on occasion. As long as you can put in at least 30 hours a week and commit enough team time, we’ll work with you to find suitable solution for both sides.


Comprehensive training

Our highly developed onboarding program will boost your skills with several days of intensive training followed by project work under the supervision of a personal mentor.

Career development

We’ll continue to support your career path over the long term, pushing you toward courses, lectures and seminars to keep you at the industry’s cutting edge.
