Futuriot as a workplace


Steve and Miikka from Futuriot

What’s it like to work at Futuriot? What kind of people they hire? We asked Steve Davies, Senior Front-end Developer, and Miikka Tuori, CEO and co-founder, to shed some light on these.

“Digitalization is a heck of a riot in all industries across the planet. Futuriot builds smart analytics and software for companies that seek better customer experience, higher productivity, and new revenue sources. We develop SaaS products on the leading cloud platform, Microsoft Azure, and provide analytics & software consultancy for our customers.” Miikka explains the essence of Futuriot. “We’ve grown to 15 people in a year and are now expanding our talent base in Tampere and the Helsinki area. We hire professionals who demonstrate an entrepreneurial mindset: can-do attitude and love for the customer’s problem!”

A livin’ breathin’ example is Steve, telling his Futuriot career story: “I’ve been in software many years. In April this year, I happened upon a Futuriot advertisement online, and always believing in keeping all options open, I applied. After a swift recruitment process, I was delighted to be offered a position. I was thoroughly impressed with Futuriot! It’s the ideal job and company spec. They definitely invest in the team, focusing on the quality of the work, less on the small stuff, making it a very relaxed and friendly environment to work in.”

Miikka describes the Futuriot approach to building a great place to work: “We use design thinking and service design with our clients and also within the team, to define and further develop our awesome employee experience! This is a workplace for the team, by the team. Futuriot is a very transparent, no-hierarchy business where you get a lot of freedom and responsibility.”

Steve concludes with thoughts on how it feels like being a Futuriot: “After a few months, I felt 100% involved socially and professionally. There’s great team spirit with lots of social activities and lunches, whilst at the same time, we’re trusted to produce a high standard of work. Being the biggest challenge of my career to date, there is pressure on me to perform highly – this is one of the reasons I love the position. With such a great firm as Futuriot, I look forward to what the future brings!”
