At Kisko you are able to have a genuine impact on the way we do things as we are becoming one of the most prestigious software companies in Finland. You’d be joining Kisko in excellent times as we are looking to reach the best year of all time in almost 15 years of our existence. We think of business as a marathon and not a sprint. Same goes for our people and we have witnessed great growth stories and long lasting (employment) relationships.
Learning and developing will for sure happen at Kisko, as we continuously explore new domains and ways of building software. We are a place for doers, who appreciate agile ways of working, with a strong sense of autonomy and dislike for hierarchies and unnecessary bureaucracy. We are not necessarily the place if you do not enjoy the unknown at all for we live for it, get intrigued by it and find it full of possibilities. We say that the most boring thing is a solved rubik's cube.
To enjoy working at Kisko, you need to enjoy working with a diverse and inclusive group of people as we are a multinational team from many different backgrounds. We try our best to keep the fun in our work, too, as fun is what brought us to the field in the first place. Our idea of fun is not made of balloon pits, but built more on people’s interests, may it be board-games, philosophy, dancing, circus, music, frisbee golf or jiu jitsu - there’s something for everyone.
You work to live and not the other way around: Work-life balance and well-being are crucial factors for us, so no overtime happening at Kisko. We hope Kisko will enhance your overall well-being, not diminish it.
