20-year-old Solita hires another 100 new employees

The growth of digital business consulting company Solita continues to be strong. In August, the company hired its hundredth new employee this year, and now employs a total of 470 professionals in Helsinki, Tampere and Oulu. In September, Solita will be celebrating its 20-year journey.

“Passionate top professionals are the company’s most important asset – everything we have begins with our people. The difficulty of finding competent personnel poses a challenge for many IT companies. We are genuinely grateful for applicants’ interest in us and the recruitment tips our employees give us, both of which have made our growth possible”, says Jonne Seppä, VP, Culture and competences. Solita’s easy-going working culture with its emphasis on top-rate competence continues to attract new professionals, and by August this year, Solita had already hired more than 100 new employees in 2016. Despite the high demand for workers in the IT industry, staff turnover at Solita has remained low.

Net sales grew by nearly 20 % in the first half of the year

The growth continues

During the first half of 2016, Solita’s net sales grew by 19% in comparison to the corresponding period the year before, amounting to EUR 28.2 million. Net sales in 2015 were EUR 49.7 million.

Solita’s new customers include the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira, Finnair, Laattapiste, the City of Oulu, and ST1. Solita builds digital business and services for its customers, from digital strategies, conceptualisation and service design to technical implementation, integration and maintenance.

“The market for digital business is developing at a rapid pace. The opportunities digitalisation offers have been noticed in many industries pursuing new growth paths and business models. Our overall service selection, from strategic planning to the operation of services, enables genuine partnerships with our customers. Our job is to function as our customers’ travel guide in the digital realm”, says Solita’s President and CEO Jari Niska.

20 years of guiding customers to the digitalizing world

Established in 1996, Solita has been growing at a robust rate nearly throughout its 20-year journey. It was also recognised as one of Finland’s fastest-growing technology companies (Deloitte Technology Fast 50) last year. Keen on fostering its corporate culture, Solita has also been recognised, on several occasions, in the Great Place to Work competition. At the moment, Solita is looking for, among other people, software developers, what are referred to as “data science” professionals in anticipatory analytics, and information security specialists with programming skills.
