Project Pundit

I ended up at Vaadin because of all the interesting possibilities it had to offer. I'm lucky to have been able do so many things here as a Vaadin expert, project manager, consultant and now also as a team leader.

I'd say I'm open, willing to try new things and have a strong technological orientation. I feel passionate about software architecture and agile methods. As a project manager, good communication and organizing skills are essential. You need to be able to interact both with the client and your team and of course also get your team to interact with each other.

Because of my work I've also had a chance to travel a lot. I recently counted that last year I spent time in 13 different airports. I've been in Europe, the US and Africa. It was pretty exciting to give a speech to hundreds of people in a developer conference JMaghreb in Morocco!

It's great that you can actually influence what the company offers to its clients. I also want to have an influence on how people experience their own work – I think it's very meaningful that people enjoy what they do.

Why should you apply here? Vaadin is growing and constantly better known. It's an international open source Java house with a prominent product. If you want to do more than just the basic stuff, make your mark and go further in your career, this is the place.

Superman of Sales

I came to Finland from Spain in 2011 to work in mobile services. My first encounter with Vaadin was a little later in a student fair held in Aalto University where Vaadin was recruiting. I talked to the VP of Services and went to a couple of interviews – and here I am!

I'm a part of the Global Sales team. Basically I take care of clients and sell Vaadin's expertise to companies worldwide. In my job you need to be social and open-minded to be able to both listen to and assist companies in a variety of topics mainly related to their different needs on building their web apps.

I would describe Vaadin as an awesome place to work: we have a lot of talented people here and the atmosphere is very open. Here you are able to get results. The management gives you real support and ensures that you are properly recognized and rewarded for what you do. They also genuinely believe in a proper balance between work and personal life. When I'm not at work, I'm enjoying life with my family: I have a wife and a baby girl.

Why did I come to Finland in the first place? Well, I was looking for an international experience and a great place to develop myself both professionally and personally. It's really rewarding to be able to save companies' time and money on software development and let them concentrate on their core business. At Vaadin you really feel you are contributing to something bigger!

Vaadin and I just "clicked": The company is small enough that I can remember everyone's name, the management is approachable and easy to talk with, and I'm given the freedom and responsibility to do my job the way I think is best. Those are really the most important qualities I look for in an employer.

As a designer, I'm responsible for the user experience and usability of the software I help build. This requires good communication skills to get the right information from clients. You also need to be able to take criticism and not be afraid to show what you are working on, even when it's not finished yet. It's just really essential for everyone involved to communicate often and well. Thankfully, though, our work environment also allows me to concentrate without distractions, as well as take regular breaks – two things that I find absolutely necessary in a job like this.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I moved to Finland in 2007 to look for an adventure. Instead, I found love and met my wife. We like living in Turku, because it's neither too small nor too big. In that way, it's very much like Vaadin.

I'm given the freedom and responsibility to do my job the way I think is best.

Climbing Developer

I'm a sporty nerd who seeks new technologies. Earlier I worked in a smaller software company and studied IT in the university. A headhunter contacted me through LinkedIn and I got interested in developing my career at Vaadin.

During the first month I was in a training project, which was a good introduction to the tools. I also had a tutor. I currently work as a developer in a team of four guys in Services. Agile development is the key! In the future it would be interesting to widen my job description and get a chance to work in the R&D team or as a project manager.

In my work, I need versatile software knowledge, I have to learn what different browsers are capable of and how to create appealing user interfaces. I also need to understand the problems, think quickly and be eager to find solutions.

As a workplace Vaadin is open, skilled and constantly evolving. The work environment here is really good and in fact, Vaadin has been successful in many "Great places to work" listings. Another big reason for me to work here is the whole open source mentality.

Both my work and my most treasured hobby, climbing, offer interesting challenges. I have been climbing in Jordan, Åland Islands and the French Alps. I find new energy at the mountaintops!

We believe in...
Transparency

We keep everyone posted on what's going on and make it everyone's business. Everyone can participate, discuss and comment.

Team voice

We like to do things together. Every Monday we have a team meeting in which we tell what's new and everyone can comment and ask. And the discussion continues in the company Skype channels and G+ around the clock. Your opinion counts, you will be the one that makes what Vaadin is tomorrow.

Creativity

You can use 10 % of working time to create something of your own choice.

Fun

We acknowledge that all work and no play makes Jack rather dull. We also have time for fun and games!

Approachability

Our company hierarchy is low. Our management is as easy to approach as everyone. There is always time for you.

Flexibility

We know that the circumstances may differ from person to person. Need time to graduate? Take a thesis month. Need family time? Take some leave. Feel stuck in a routine? Let's find new challenges.

Diversity

We are an international and multifaceted community. Our team comes from all over the world and speaks eight different languages natively. The company language is English. We appreciate you just the way you are.
