As Pasi has been there almost from the very beginning, he has seen the company grow from a 5-person start-up in Espoo to a Nordic-wide player.
Pasi Haukka is the second employee at Fluido. He joined the company in August 2010 — just a few months after Fluido was founded. Pasi majored in software technology and became acquainted with application development, later creating a small custom CRM as his final thesis. After graduating, he worked with hardware and server maintenance, company network planning, and problem-solving as well as database and web programming — quite far from the cloud business. Pasi joined Fluido with an open mind, ready to learn about a technology that was totally unknown to 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!
At Fluido, Pasi started as an application developer, and his tasks have been evolving over the years, along with Fluido’s growth. Salesforce was totally new for Pasi when he joined Fluido, but the platform has become very familiar to him over the years. Pasi works closely with customers to find the best way to solve their problems and develop their business with Salesforce. Working with large global customers has also taught him a lot, as he has to work with different technologies for various customer projects. Working with customers on different projects is one of the things Pasi enjoys most in his work. But first and foremost, Pasi mentions his colleagues and the working environment as the best part of working at Fluido. As Pasi has been there almost from the very beginning, he has seen the company grow from a 5-person start-up in Espoo to a Nordic-wide player. “It has been interesting to see all the different phases during this journey,” he sums up.
Salesforce and its technology are evolving and developing all the time, with new releases and updates launched three times a year. This means that working in the Salesforce ecosystem never gets boring: there is always more to learn. “Working with this technology stays versatile and interesting,” Pasi adds. For Pasi, Chatter was one major and very visible new addition to Salesforce, which took a little getting used to as a replacement for work emails. But a few years later, Chatter is the obvious tool for communicating with colleagues in different locations.
"When we were small, we were like a little family, and this feeling is still the base of the company."
Sports have always been an important part of Pasi’s free time and a good way to balance life. After attending the famous Classic Finntriathlon in Joroinen as 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 cycling, running and swimming, and of course, taking part in two triathlon competitions, including his 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 toward the same goal,” he adds. The management at Fluido is relaxed, and every employee is a person with a face: 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!”
