1. Why did you decide to work for Rovio?
I'm studying Creative Business Management, which encompasses everything related to the creative economy and industries. Right now Rovio is the number one company in Finland and perhaps in the world in that field, so applying for a position at Rovio was a no brainer. I’m predicting that the creative industries are going to become a cornerstone of the Finnish economy. Working at Rovio is a huge opportunity for me to learn everything related to that. I also love Angry Birds, so there's no better place to be!
2. Why do you like working at Rovio ?
Because every day is different! The work environment is so dynamic and there’s always something interesting going on. You never know what's going to happen during the workday and that's what I love most about Rovio. Also the people are great! I've never met so many talented people working for the same company.
3. What are your main responsibilities and duties?
I'm working in the licensing department doing various tasks from design to business. We have a small and highly talented team and since there are so many different things going on, everybody is doing a bit of everything. I'd say we have a nice entrepreneurial spirit in our department. Everybody is willing to do tasks outside their own comfort zone and learn new things.
4. What are the most challenging and interesting projects you've worked on at Rovio?
Well definitely everything related to licensing and merchandising. We are building our department from scratch, and we face new challenges every day. Nobody in our department has ever done this in a scale this huge. We're learning, failing, succeeding and most of all having lots of fun together. What's there not to like?
5. What has been the most amazing experience or day you have had at Rovio?
Like I said, every day is different when you're working at Rovio. So I can't really answer this question. I've loved every single day here - working with Rovio is really a once in a lifetime opportunity.
