Careers

Qvik has a strong background in designing & developing mobile services for our customers – but we haven’t stopped there. Today we offer full digital solutions with robust and scalable cloud backends.

We hire people who want to do more than just code and design. Qvikies lead, support and make an impact.

We make meaningful happen. We are Qvik.

This is us

In 2008, Qvik started out as a group of friends hoping to deliver saucy code and amazing digital services, yet have an awesome time while doing so – and the spirit of those startup-like times is still strongly with us. Today we are a team of 60+ tech-curious, fun-loving problem-solvers. We prefer to take the lead and use our expertise to make our clients shine. We’ve built services that have become benchmarks. That’s where our aim was in 2008 and that’s what we now do every day.

Our Culture

Building meaningful digital services that make an impact and even change the way a whole industry works means constantly evolving both as individuals and as a collective. We stay on top of the latest technologies and trends by keeping close ties with the tech scene through arranging and participating (a lot of!) meetups and events, having internal guilds and encouraging everyone to try and share their experiences. Our sense of community derives from being friends and enjoying each other’s company at and outside of work. We travel together, celebrate together, share mutual interests. As an example, we have a lot of hobby clubs, such as a stand-up club, board game club or fishing club, which bring us together. Pretty cool, we think.

What we offer - in Finland & abroad

This part is clear: we offer some pretty cool projects for our developers and designers. Some of our latest projects have been related to, for example, mobility and travel, finance sector and machine learning.

A big part of our competence development comes through everyday work, but we also have guilds, meetups and coaching to support Qvikies in their professional growth. Our benefits package is nice and extensive, including e.g. the work equipment of your choice, occupational health care with extra insurance, annual bonus, and many sports and hobby possibilities with other Qvikies. In 2018, we’ll also have a villa in Thailand for Qvikies and their families to share to have a holiday or work remotely.

What we expect

We expect a lot from Qvikies because we believe that if you have high expectations, you also deliver better and develop faster. In addition to sharing our vision of a company culture, the level of professionalism and core skills have to be high. We expect you to be used to recommending and comparing different tech or design solutions. You gladly bounce your ideas with your colleagues and mentor juniors. Due to your expertise, you can take the lead in projects. You also understand the nature of consulting business and what it is like to work as a consultant. We also expect you to ask questions, take chances, be silly and be yourself. That’s all.

Pizza&Beers @ Qvik

We host monthly Pizza&Beers meetups in which you get a chance to hear about the current hot topics in tech and design. And of course, stuff yourself with pizza and fizzy beverages. In the past, our themes have included for example relevance design, recommender systems and AR/VR. In September 2017 our topic was Mobility as a Service (MaaS) with a cool line-up for speakers from OP, Taxify and MaaS Global.

Our latest P&B was arranged at our office on Thursday 26 October on ‘Health, Sports & Wellness Technology‘. Our speakers represented companies like Beddit / Apple and Suunto. More info and registrations for our event through Meetup.com.

Jerry Jalava

Jerry is a real wild card full of surprises. He’s our Senior System Architect and Nordic’s first Google Cloud Trainer – but he has also worked in a circus for about 10 years as a magician, and had the World’s first USB-prosthesis. What the… – right? Jerry is constantly looking for new backend friends – so if you’d like to work with Jerry, contact us!

Liisa Stenberg

As Qvik’s AD, Liisa designs digital experiences and balances beautifully between making the most awesome products there are and realizing what’s not going to happen within the time and resources measured for the project. At her spare time, Liisa pours her gushing creative energy taking photographs and writing books – like, actual books that will get published.

Matias Pietilä

Matias is Qvik’s own modern renaissance man. He’s our head of design, and as a member of Qvik’s board he’s also there navigating Qvik’s overall direction – but in addition to that, he helps to boost our marketing and sales whenever necessary. If you need a professional opinion, feel free to ask Matias. Also, if you want to hear a joke told with a poker face, ask Matias.
