Work culture engineer / Social responsibility
We like to think of our people as T- or π-shaped professional. It means that they have one or two strong core competences, but they also develop their professional skills wider and seek information from around their own skillset. Tuomas, as someone once said during the late hours, is a skateboard -shaped person.
Tuomas started in Futurice as a summer trainee in 2008. At first he was developing Java and PHP backends as well as CMS implementations. Rather soon, he moved to web frontend applications and joined the infamous maintenance team, where he ended up sharing the supervisor responsibilities.
For three years Tuomas was responsible for taking Futurice's recruitment forward. Working with employee promise, HR marketing and candidate screening he did everything related to recruitment. On the side, he also participated in developing Futurice's work culture further.
Today, Tuomas works in Chilicorn Fund. Futurice's social responsibility program. It's a hands on job including project management as well as coding.
