What technologies do you work with?
Future-proof technologies that fit the purpose. Jaakko lists our current development stack in this blog post.
Do you offer summer jobs / internships / thesis work?
While we do not actively promote summer jobs or study related opportunities, we’re definitely interested in hearing more about you and your proposal. If you have a suggestion that doesn’t match any of our listed open positions, please use the Open Application. We’ll be happy to see if there’s a possibility for us to work together!
Do you outsource development or work with remote teams?
In short, no. We think it’s important that our developers (and the rest of the team) can interact and learn with, and challenge each other, under one roof. Continuous collaboration and contact are important because they have a direct impact on building a solid team. This strengthens our culture and minimizes ambiguity regarding who’s doing what, when, and where. We believe that having a centralized team guarantees true commitment to projects and high-quality end results.
Can you give us a cost estimate for…?
Yes, we can. The accuracy of our estimate is positively correlated with the accuracy of the information you’re able to provide to us. If you’re all set with that, go ahead and contact us.
Do you do content or copywriting?
While we do have some Shakespeare-esque wordsmiths in the house, extensive content work is currently not our main focus. In many cases the content comes from our client, and our role is more about consulting and optimizing the content with the particular service and business targets in mind. However, we will be happy to discuss your need and find the best solution.
Do you know HubSpot?
Yes we do. Please contact Mikael Toivio (email@example.com)
What is Everblox?
Everblox is our way of making website management easier for you. In all its simplicity, it’s a system of content blocks that provides
- Fast and easy page creation
- Full control over website content
- Lower design and development costs
- Visually stunning results
- Uncompromised brand consistency.
Isn’t WordPress unsafe?
Not if you know what you’re doing. Being an open source platform, WordPress has its vulnerabilities, but as we see it, the pros of having an active developer community heavily outweigh the cons. Our CTO Jaakko busts a couple of other myths related to WordPress in this blog post.
Do you do fixed price projects?
Usually, our pricing is hourly-based – it depends on the scope of the project. Contact us to talk projects.
Do you have more “boring” b2b or public/governmental clients?
Boring clients – what are those? We don’t just work with some of the most media sexy clients on Earth, like Slush. Our clients come in many shapes and sizes. In addition to successful private companies, we work with a number of b2b and public organizations, including City of Helsinki, Suomen Sydänliitto, and Helsinki Deaconess Institute.
Would you be interested in working with us?

Have you done eCommerce projects?
Yes! We’ve built eCommerce integrations for Messukeskus and Superpark to name a couple. WooCommerce and Shopify are our most used tools for eCommerce solutions.
Are you an ad agency?
Do you only do WordPress projects?
No. WordPress is one of our core platforms (because it’s so versatile), but we always choose our tools according to what’s best for each case. Read more about our technology stack in this blog post.
