Why Zure as an employer?
When in my previous position I was running out of new challenges, I started searching for a job where I wouldn’t have to worry about stagnating. Zure speaks to me especially because of its high goals and strong values. I remember sitting in the job interview and thinking “wow, this kind of thing actually exists”. At Zure it’s understood that good results cannot form without the wellbeing of the community.
Has telecommuting changed the way you work
Absolutely. Before corona-times, I had to get to the office to get my working mode running, but now I’ve gotten used to remote working. Nowadays I can get my work done from home when lying on the couch with my baggy pants on, so comfort levels have actually increased. On the flip side, I see my coworkers in person too rarely.
Where do you get strength for your work week?
Personally, it depends a lot on the day because when my work is going well and there are few obstacles, the day seems really easy. If the situation is unclear or I hit walls constantly, I usually don’t work as long. In the evening I relax by playing guitar or going for an afterwork. And sometimes when my workday allows it I take a nap in the middle of the day 🙂
Halloween experiences that you could share?
In Otaniemi there was once a Halloween party that had a bouncing castle. I tried to get in but the doorman told me that “you can’t take your drink with you in there”. I tried to persuade him by criticizing his judgment until I spilled my drink on his shirt. I took a cab home.
