In 2012, Lauri Oikari won Hello World Open, the first Finnish Coding Championship. He joined Smartly.io as a Software Developer about a year later. Lauri has experience in algorithm design and native mobile app development. Now, he expands his knowledge by building a scalable SaaS product with the latest web technologies.
Smartly.io’s customers are the most advanced digital marketing experts in Europe. “Automating the digital marketing processes for the largest e-commerce companies in Europe has been a fascinating task,” Lauri says.
The business environment develops fast and our customers are willing to try new features daily. “The constant change enables continuous learning and personal growth,” Lauri stresses. Smartly.io provides a lot of autonomy and aims to grow employees to reach their maximum potentials.
Lauri studied industrial engineering and management at Tampere University of Technology. His hobbies include programming, tennis, piano, and mathematics. He loves to try out new things, from pole dancing to jujutsu.
Smartly.io is able to offer challenges and the environment Lauri was looking for. “It’s just not about the product. The team has the passion and the ability to go very far. I like to work with the best and the brightest. The culture is definitely right: we are constantly asking the right questions.”
