#FinlandWorks at Bengaluru Tech Summit

Finland is a small country that has produced big things. This includes SMS and 5G. Finnish pressure sensors are even on the Mars Curiosity rover. In Southwest Finland, we have thriving maritime and tech industries. Southwest Finland is also one of the best places in the world to live and work. We will be part of the #FinlandWorks booth at the Bengaluru Tech Summit 18-20th of November and we have lots of job opportunities to share. You can find us at booth #3. For example, Awake.AI is a pioneer in shipping automation and they have interesting open positions. On the tech side, we have software companies like Vaadin.

Mehdi Javan is a Senior Software Developer with Vaadin. In his position on the Flow team, he helps develop and maintain the Vaadin platform, which is used by over 100,000 software developers throughout the world. He said he enjoys working with a wide variety of developers from all over the world. Along with loving the job, he loves Turku and Southwest Finland. “You can go anywhere in no time. There are lots of different kinds of entertainment and it is easy to find a nice path to run,” Javan says.

As a company Vaadin prides itself on having a very diverse staff. Right now, they have employees with 22 different nationalities, says Anne Koskinen-Kannisto, Vice President of People at Vaadin. Turku and Southwest Finland is home to a number of companies looking for tech, robotics and artificial intelligence experts. Turnover for tech industry companies in Southwest Finland is EUR 4.6 billion. Click here to see more open positions.

The marine industry in Finland is an international and versatile field. It has an annual revenue of EUR 13 billion and employs more than 50,000 people all over the country. We are creating business innovations and environmentally sustainable solutions. Along with our #FinlandWorks booth during the entire Tech Summit, we will have a side event on 19th of November at the Shangri-La Hotel. The event is free of charge, but you must register in advance. At the event, you will meet Timo Harakka, the Finnish Minister of Employment, see presentations about different Finnish cities and learn about our Talent Call Turku campaign.

In 2020, the competition returns. Again, we bring international talents and their families to spend a week in Turku to do a test of the best city for work-life balance. Or as we like to say, “with the best default settings for a good life.” At the side event, you will meet Jinu John and his wife Meera who visited with four other families during the first competition.
