About Taiste

Taiste builds digital products by combining deep technology expertise with top-notch service design. We work on diverse projects for both consumer and professional use. The company was founded in 2009 and currently consists of 45 professionals.

Our equal and open working environment offers freedom and responsibility and seeks to support all involved with their personal goals as well. You'll get to work on interesting projects with modern technologies – together with the top talents of their respective fields.

Interesting projects

What will you be working on? Depends on the role and current situation. However, the cases on our website are accurate examples of the kind of projects we work on. What you see is what you get!

Our projects are meaningful and positively challenging. The customer base is wide – you always have a say in what you find interesting and rewarding.

Long term well-being

Our work culture emphasises the combination of great personal freedom and responsibility. We’re all humans and colleagues – not bosses and subordinates. In order to create the best and most productive environment for smart people, that’s the only way to go.

The relationship between the employee and the employer should be healthy, honest and balanced. We maintain this with active open dialogue and focusing on things that contribute to well-being in the long term.

The best parts of two cities and remote working

Our world-class offices are located at the heart of Helsinki and in lively and unique Turku. You can flexibly work in either one of them – or remotely when you feel like it.

You really get to utilise these cool spaces, since most of the work is done at our own premises. No need to bring a fridge to the customer's office.

Compensation and benefits

For us, profitability is a means to build both individual and collective happiness. This includes competitive salaries and developing benefits that make us feel good and inspired.

We discuss and develop these benefits together, making sure they have value for us.

"Here, the cliché about freedom and responsibility actually holds true. As an employee, you get to be very independent, and yet most of the time you spend working collaboratively with your colleagues in our own offices. Moreover, your input matters in terms of which projects you want to be involved with.”
