It has been common knowledge for a while now that there is a huge lack of talent in the Game industry. It is also known that Helsinki is currently the best gaming ecosystem in the world. The talent deficit will not be solved by hiring a person from company A to company B within the Finnish games industry.
Universities are also not graduating enough people to solve the problem. This is why we decided to start facilitating tech recruitment events already in 2018, taking Finnish Games and IT studios to St. Petersburg and Kyiv to meet local talent and recruit team members.
Over the past two years we have been working with all the major gaming studios in Finland. We love games, we play games, that is why we are so successful in delivering success for the gaming studios.
However, we realized that out of the hundreds of professionals attending our events we were only helping a handful that were being recruited by the participating companies. We then decided to start interviewing specialists ourselves, and commit to helping them finding a position in Gaming in Finland.
