Straight from the horse's mouth
What our team members have said about working in Rohea.
Rohea has given me the opportunity to push myself outside my comfort zone. I’m learning new things constantly, which can be hard, but with the support and patience of my colleagues, I feel confident I can do it.
Rohea is a bunch of really awesome persons. I promise, you will be laughing a lot. Even when things get hectic, you can trust that somebody will make a joke. Although, the joke probably won’t be good.
When starting a new job, one of the things that worries both the current/prospective employees/employers is team fit. But I can say that, if you read the Rohea's values and feel they match yours, there won't be any issues fitting the team.
At Rohea you don't feel limited in pursuing your own way of doing things. Self-learning, discussions, experiments are highly encouraged, especially if they might result in something applicable to the company's products.
Summing up, trying by doing, discussing the "doing", and improving it is what Rohea is all about. As such, it's a great place to work.
I came to Finland to study and by chance stumbled across Rohea’s hiring page. I am no longer a student but I have never been learning so much as I am now.
At Rohea I found a place where if you have an idea and take the initiative, you are given the chance to make things happen. Combined with a lot of freedom, it is a great place to grow.
From the perspective of a foreigner, I truly appreciate the inclusive and friendly atmosphere at Rohea that make me feel at home.
Developing a product means that you end up savoring the fruits of your work countless times in the future. Working in a small company, on the other hand, means that you'll most likely be the one fixing them if they're not doing their job. This if anything should teach you a lesson about quality.
Another positive aspect about working on a product is that it constantly invites you to refactor and re-design components. As a consequence, it's difficult to avoid growing as a developer in the process.
Rohea is a place for doing. If you see something that could be done better, you go and improve it. If something isn’t working, you fix it. Colleagues are supporting and helping you to accomplish what you want and need to do and (often) provide some humorous interludes while doing it.
I enjoy the atmosphere of freedom and constant learning that reigns in Rohea.
Rohea is fair and humane. You will be given time and opportunities to better yourself, but you also need to show results, which is fair. You will be treated with respect and consideration, but you also need to take responsibility, which is humane.
As it is in all things, it's all up to you.
Working at Rohea is great for personal growth and self-fulfillment. We're encouraged to find use for our many talents and interests, and to be diversely involved in all steps of the process. This builds a good sense of purpose and commitment to the end products.
In my experience Rohea has been a fair and flexible environment to create great things.
With Rohea the tasks have always been diverse and how you go about them is mostly in your hands. My main selling point is that you won't be stuck in what you do, you will always be improving yourself and can influence the tasks you will be undertaking.
It won't always be easy, but good things never are.
I've always find it fascinating that Rohea has never been stuck in just certain way of getting things done. Latest technologies and trends are adopted regularly which is why methologies and tooling tends to follow best practices. But to be honest, that's also why there's always some legacy code to refactor or technical debt to pay off.
Overall Rohea has provided me a path from programmer to DevOps engineer, so there's always room to grow and take more responsibility.
Rohea is a place that gives you a lot of freedom how to do your work. You have a say in your tools and in your approach to problem solving. Do you sometimes want to work remotely or even take a few months and set up office abroad? If you can do it responsibly and the flow with your teammates works, it's completely doable. Results matter, but if it works, how you do it is open for discussion.
At Rohea, I appreciate the trust I can put in my co-workers and the trust I receive myself to do the work in ways I find most fulfilling.
Rohea gave me inspirational environment and mindset. Company’s inborn drive to make friendlier software gives you great place to display your passion to build great products that you can be proud of.
I’ve dropped out from daily life at Rohea few years years ago in order to become medical doctor. Now when looking Rohea outside the box, I’m very happy to see a positive energy and team that aspires to create products that are both beautiful and friendly both end user and developer point of view.
We're growing a company where building high quality is the default state of mind. We iterate, improve and refactor, most of the time without client asking to. It means you won't get thanked for doing normal but cheered if you find a way to work your magic better.
I'm the guy who asks people to fix their naming schemes to follow a pattern I figured out and probably forgot to tell about. In a wider sense, I think every single part of a software needs to be thought through with loving and caring attitude. Solid argumentation is how things get decided most times.
We have our up and downs, but I do believe that people who are self-driven and hungry to learn will be happy with us. I do put a lot weight on work ethics and I'd get irritated if somebody would seem to be "just working", e.g. seem not to be interested in reaching their full potential (and then some). We put much emphasis on quality and continuous improvement. And to a freedom of being yourself.
Me myself: I try not to get into way of people doing stuff or micromanage. Sometimes I fail, but luckily when I do, I'll mostly get instant feedback to back off. That is good.
