In my previous blog post I shared some tips on how to get a job at the most exciting startups in San Francisco, Shanghai or Tokyo. Yesterday I got to know an amazing platform where you can find a job at the coolest Nordic startups! Do you want to learn more? Keep on reading this post!

Why a startup?

I’ve mentioned several times that I’m currently working at a startup here in Finland. What I love the most about it is the opportunity to be a part of something growing at a rapid pace. You learn new things every day. You take risks, try new things and strategies, overcome your fears, grow and celebrate success together with your team. Yes, sometimes you screw things up and try to fix them. Yes, it might get stressful, and you may make others furious and pissed. But we all make mistakes. The most important thing is to learn from them and try not to repeat them again.

Startups usually have a laid-back atmosphere, flexible working hours and… fun. Being surrounded by young and passionate people gives you a special feeling and charges you with indomitable energy, believe me on that!

However, landing a dream job is a truly difficult and time-consuming process. That’s why I’m always happy to share with you some tools and tips on how to make your life easier!

What is The Hub?

The Hub is an online platform tailored to the needs of growing startups. The Hub’s goal is to help these companies with recruitment, funding, best practices and tools. The most important assets of a company are its employees. That’s why it’s so important to help startups find skilled IT people, project managers, business developers, and sharp communicators as easy as possible.

The Hub is for people who want to work at a startup company in the Nordic countries. These folks can be already a part of the startup community, students with a dream of getting a job in Nordics or simply those who want to change their lives and become a part of something new and amazing.

The Hub’s launch in Finland

The Hub has been operating for quite some time in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Yesterday, on the 30th of January, there was an official launch event in Helsinki, and I was there!

‘TheHub.fi is based on a strategic partnership between Danske Bank and Maria 01. The project has been fuelled by Danske Bank’s wish to help Nordic companies grow, especially young companies with a global outlook and the ambition to expand.’

It’s been a pleasure to meet, listen and talk to people who organized this event, and those who came to celebrate and get to know new people! For me, personally, it was really interesting to hear a success story about the Finnish startup called Vainu.io and talk to one of the first employees the company took aboard at the very beginning of their growth. Thanks for organizing such a great event, Danske Bank and Maria 01!

I hope that this blog post will help you land a dream job at a startup in Nordics! Don’t forget to share this post with your friends who might be interested in finding new career opportunities!
