My name is Antti and I came to Pinja in 2011 to complete my internship. Over the years, I have been involved in many projects and worked in several different roles. My duties have evolved to include, beside coding, also development of support practices and automation.
In January 2021, I started in my current position as the leader of the development team for the Gema team or the Gema by Pinja service. At the same time, I participate in the further development of development practices of the business unit and DevOps, for example, by building CI/CD pipelines.
In my own work, I value most freedom and the possibility to learn new things. Further development of automation is a fascinating area in my current job. I get to test new solutions, such as a new CI pipeline that could be used to build a new automation system. Over the years, I have also been involved in solving very complicated logic problems – and I have enjoyed it a lot.
I like the sense of community at Pinja. The work environment in the office is relaxed, we play board games during coffee breaks, laugh and make jokes while working. It is possible to discuss difficult problems with a colleague sitting next to you even though not working in the same project. The relationship with workmates does not remain superficial: we spend time and do things together even after the workday, for example, by arranging LAN parties.
The best thing in my job is workmates and a good atmosphere. We spend time and push forward together!
