Greetings from the team

“In my first project, I was involved in public sector customer, where I was able to delve into an interesting field in the social and healthcare industry. In the project, I was involved in defining the transporting and cleaning of the customer’s data for reporting purposes. My daily work has been supported by the opportunity to study various certificates and the aid of friendly and competent colleagues. Alongside the project work, the communal spirit at Gofore can be felt, and the environment allows for various encounters and opportunities to participate and influence the work community.”

Minna, Data Engineer

Since my first projects at Gofore, I have happily noticed how the surrounding work culture has inspired me to find solutions to the challenges encountered in the project. The greatest strength in my day-to-day has been the genuinely helpful and supportive colleagues around me. Learning about new approaches has been very inspiring and has helped me develop myself.
