What made you apply for a job at Miil?
I didn't really apply to Miil, but I started a business. The establishment started with the idea of providing business-oriented software consulting and putting the developer at the centre. In other words, you can find developers for projects that learn new things in the project and whose mindset is business-oriented rather than technology-oriented.

How would you describe Miil's working culture?
Miili trusts a friend and strives to bring out the best in everyone.

Hobbies:
I'm involved in my children's hobbies, baseball and orienteering. In baseball, I'm my son's coach. Plus, I go for bike rides and a gym.

What's the best part of your job?
Learning new and continuously evolving.

A memorable moment of joy or success at Miili:
Hiring the first employee in a certain way. It takes responsibility not only for itself, but also for the fact that there is enough work for others. It can be compared in a certain way to the birth of one's own child.

What would you like to learn next?
At the moment, I'm trying to develop my supervisor skills and MS Azure skills.

Tell me some funny fact about yourself:
I am the Finnish iceball champion in E-juniors since 1989.

What made you pick you up for Miil?
I headhunted Ilka and Ilkka headhunted me, that's where it started. Miili was fascinated by being able to build a company from the very beginning, to create a company that looks like your own. Founder Ilka had a strong value base, which resonated. From there, we started together to create an employee-oriented company in Miili.

How would you describe Miil's working culture?
We have a free and flexible work culture. Here you are free to do anything that supports your own development. We have a low hierarchy, everyone is listened to and everyone is involved, everyone gets to make a difference. We have a tight-minded team where you have the courage to say your own opinions and also question things. 

Hobbies:
Jogging with a dog and doing things. 

What's the best part of your job?
Versatility, you get to do everything and you learn new things all the time. Free rein affects your own work.

A memorable moment of joy or success at Miili:
Every time a team has grown up and we've found great colleagues in the group – those are moments of joy.

What would you like to learn next?
More on marketing.

Tell me some funny fact about yourself:
I have worked in software development companies since 2017, that experience is useful when headhunting coders and creating a working environment and   culture that attracts IT professionals. In addition, experience can also be found in start-ups, which is also useful in the construction and development of Miili.

What made you apply to Miil?
I chose Miil because Miil has experience in domain-driven design and event-based architectures that I have already discovered, which I believe are key tools both in designing new IT and software architectures and in updating existing ones. I jumped in to learn more about them and work on them. There were also a number of interesting customer projects to choose from, so the choice was easy in the end.

How would you describe Miil's working culture?
In a small house, there are plenty of opportunities to influence what you do and what you represent. Miili has clear values and there was a lot of talk about them in recruitment. So it's easy to believe that everything is building a culture and it's making a big difference to me.

Hobbies:

Leisure time is spent exercising; I run, I cycle, I swim, I climb.

What's the best thing about your job?
Miili has fulfilled the promise of meaningful work and functional infrastructure around it.

A memorable moment of joy or success at Miili:
The start of the customer project and Mili's successful meetup in the spring, which left a lot of new acquaintances and information in hand.

What made you pick you up for Miil?
Miili's work was fascinated by the strong value base and the opportunity to build things from scratch.

How would you describe Miil's working culture?
Every day offers the opportunity to learn new things and work flexibly.

Hobbies:
Baking and exercise in your own bodypump gym built in the living room.

What's the best part of your job?
At Miili, the employee is trusted and everyone's opinions are listened to. New ideas can also be boldly tried, and it is not expected that a person should be a blacksmith at birth.

A memorable moment of joy or success at Miili:
Especially my first day at Miil has been very memorable. It was interesting to hear more about Ilka's visions and get to know Miil's other employees, who turned out to be top guys. 

What would you like to learn next?
Next, I would like to learn how to photograph and make animations.

Tell me some funny fact about yourself:
My third name is The 24th.
