Sea the future with Finnish maritime industry

When Ludmilla Seppälä moved from St. Petersburg to Turku, Finland, it was for a job with local software company CADMATIC. She planned to try it out for a year or two. Then she met her husband and twelve years later, she is still working with CADMATIC.

CADMATIC makes computer-aided design software for ships, plants and offshore platforms. Their software is used by shipyards and engineering companies throughout the world. In her position as Product Owner, she manages product documentation and travels to meet clients to make sure they know the benefits or the product and can quickly start using the software.

The marine industry in Finland is an international and versatile field for top talents. Finland’s maritime cluster has 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. This growing industry calls for new talents interested in diverse career possibilities.  

Finland has been ranked as the best place for expat families. Some of the reasons are that Finland has plenty of open positions at interesting companies as well as world-class schools, health care and other services. Being at the forefront of the maritime industry and innovation is also something that motivates Ludmila Seppälä.

– It is great to be among people who are passionate about what they’re doing. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, the people are professionals and they respect each other. There are no bureaucratic constraints or a shortage of challenges from clients, Ludmila Seppälä tells about the best things about CADMATIC.

– There is a big, innovative shipyard in Turku and lots of companies around it. There are great possibilities here for people to develop and to do new things, says Seppälä about her home port Turku, Finland.

Turku is a city of 200.000 people. It is the flagship city of Southwest Finland, a region of 700.000 people. It is also the maritime capital of Finland. The region has over 700 interesting maritime companies. Along with the five shipyards, there are many design agencies and shipping companies. Turku & Southwest Finland is also known for its rush-free, family-friendly environment and beautiful nature by the Baltic Sea and Archipelago.  

We are looking forward to meeting anyone interested in work and career opportunities in Finland. There are many available positions and we can help you find them.
