Janne joined giosg as a Software Developer in December 2017, after a friend working in the Data team recommended the position to him (thanks Aleksi!). Having graduated from Aalto University with a master’s degree in Computer Science, he had gained experience working at a market leading technology company and was looking for a new challenge.
“I chose giosg because I wanted to try working for a smaller, growing company. I wanted to test my abilities and challenge myself. Also, from the very first interview, I had the impression that the work environment and team spirit were great, I felt welcome.”
In fact, his first impression was just right, Janne describes every day at giosg as fun and stimulating:
“I never get tired or bored, there isn’t one day like the other, one day I might be busy developing machine learning infrastructure and the next I’m creating user interfaces.”
Since the data team is still relatively small, every team member gets to take on a high level of responsibility and wide-ranging tasks including infrastructure maintenance, product development and data processing. Janne also highlights that the systems he works with are up to date and he has a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing his tools.
