Why join our community?

This is what our people have said:

“What most inspires me in my work is seeing the impact of what we do. It’s not only about our clients’ business goals, but often there is a wider contribution to society or the environment.” (Lauri Kieksi, Service Designer)

“People are very open-minded and straightforward. There is a will to improve, provide new solutions and grow together. I also think we can be more successful when we can be authentic, and felt from day one that I can be myself at the office.” (Linda Moll, Consultant)

“People get to work with really interesting projects, and it doesn’t require previous experience in the area. You can try new things and direct your learning based on your interests, instead of getting stuck in specific expertise. You are not left alone, since there are always more experienced co-workers guiding you.” (Anaïs Renson, Data Architect)
