Pasi Haukka is the second employee at Fluido! He joined the company in August 2010 and the company had been founded only a few months earlier. Pasi majored in software technology and got acquainted with application development later created a small custom CRM as his final thesis. After graduating he was working with hardware and server maintenance, company network planning, and problem solving as well as database and web programming, which are quite far from the cloud business. He joined Fluido with an open mind ready to learn about a totally unknown technology for him. Now, almost six years later, he is a valued and respected colleague who amazes his peers with his skills and even has a solution named after him!
Salesforce and its technology are evolving and developing all the time and new releases and updates are launched three times a year. This means that working in the Salesforce ecosystem never gets boring and there is always more to learn; “working with this technology stays versatile and interesting”, he adds. For Pasi, Chatter was one major and very visible new addition to Salesforce which at first was not natural to use at work instead of emails. But now a few years later, Chatter is the obvious tool for communicating with colleagues in different locations.
Sports have always been an important part of Pasi’s freetime and a good way to balance life. After attending the famous Classic Finntriathlon in Joroinen as a part of the Fluido team in 2015 together with two other brave Fluidians, his training has become even more goal oriented. The coming summer will be spent by cycling, running and swimming and of course taking part in two triathlon competitions including the first personal Finntriathlon!
For Pasi, Fluido has always been a great employer. “When we were small, we were like a little family, and this feeling is still the base of the company”, he describes. “The atmosphere among colleagues is very warm. Each year we gather for a couple of days and there it becomes clear how we all feel part of the big Fluido family and all work towards the same goal”, he adds. The management at Fluido is relaxed and every employee is a person with a face, meaning that people are the most important and no one is left behind.
Pasi awaits the future with the same open and positive mind with which he joined the company: “while growing to become even bigger than now, the company will change. It’s great to be part of this and to see where we’re going!”
