    First agency for IT freelancers in Finland

    Finitec was founded in the summer of 2005 as the first agency for IT freelancers in Finland. The idea for an agency came up in the UK where Finitec founder Pekka Hackspik worked as a Talent Agent in the early 2000s. 

    After doing some research, Pekka found that there was no freelancer market in Finland at that time even though the market demand for IT professionals was high. As there were no freelancers Finitec started delivering experts from smaller companies to end clients. As Finitec started surfacing opportunities for freelancers, the freelancer market and general interest in freelancing started to grow.

    The key Finitec crew started to take shape in 2009 as Taavi Thiel joined the gang. As a heavyweight in sales, Taavi helped propel Finitec to a fast track of growth. This didn’t go unnoticed by Reaktor and Bravedo and eventually, Finitec became part of the Fusion (then Reaktor) Ecosystem and Bravedo tech cluster in 2013.

    Software Development became Finitec’s focus area after Lauri Jutila and Rami Hirvelä joined the company in 2017 and 2018.

    How do you see your company in today’s markets?

    At the moment there are some key trends that give a tailwind to freelance agencies like Finitec.

    • Full-time independence is an increasingly viable and attractive option for many professionals, especially for those working in software development and digital transformation. 
    • Companies have become more comfortable working with freelancers as well as matured in acquiring and leading teams of freelance talent. 
    • Remote work becoming the new normal has also encouraged many new professionals to pursue self-employment due to increased flexibility.
    • Work-life satisfaction among independents has remained high.

    In this business environment, we believe Finitec’s proactive talent and customer relationship management along with a wide direct end-customer portfolio will keep Finitec an attractive choice for both ambitious professionals as well as businesses looking to ensure the acquisition of senior talent.

    Solving customers’ talent demand problems

    Our mission is to make sure our talents have a steady and predictable flow of interesting high-value freelance to choose the best match from. 

    As Finitec is technology-agnostic, there is a great deal of variety in the domains of the problems our experts solve. In software development, we work largely with different technologies ranging from typical modern web development stacks to legacy mainframe systems. In addition to software development, we help our clients by delivering expertise in project management, data engineering, test automation, DevOps, cybersecurity, cloud, and platforms such as Dynamics, SAP & Salesforce. 

    In other words, we solve our customers’ talent demand problems with timely delivery of solo professionals and teams where an inhouse-like commitment to the team is needed.

    Working at Finitec

    Finitec is a 27-strong team of sales, talent acquisition, and technology professionals. The finesse of Finitec hides in a strictly nurtured and developed culture that radiates professionalism with an easy-going attitude. The culture and ways of working align well with the freelance mindset – we strive to give everyone as much freedom to live and work how they want.

    One thing that connects Finitecians is their fondness for stories. It doesn’t matter whether something out of the ordinary happened on a good day, bad day, or a company trip to Ibiza – it always somehow transforms into something of a “strong, life-lasting story” as we like to call it.
