Our culture: Our company is a great fit for someone who likes working in an organization that trusts smart individuals to do smart things within a minimal traditional hierarchy. Instead of rigid management structures, we prefer dynamic leadership and shared responsibility. Each one of us has our own areas of authority, expected targets and outcomes, the power and mandate to execute our roles, but also responsibility for results and deliverables.

Our perks: We are a very new start-up. We will have our first permanent office above iconic rock club Tavastia in central Helsinki from beginning of July. We don’t have electric cars, pin ball machines, an indoor climbing wall, or even a foosball table. What we do have is boundless enthusiasm, great ideas that fly from all directions, belief that we are creating something extraordinary, and slight occasional chaos. We will introduce new benefits according to company growth and wishes from the crew. We aim to grow and reap the benefits of the growth together.
