Remote Work in Finland
If you’re interested in full time remote work in Finland, these companies are happy to give their team the flexibility they need. I am a strong believer of working remotely myself. It can really help you smash out tasks that need lazer focus and also you save a lot of time commuting. There are plenty of tools to get connected to your team and make sure you’re all on the same page. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection.
As summer seems brief after the 120 days of winter in this Nordic gem, remote work in Finland is celebrated especially in the season. Imagine sitting by one the serene lakes of Finland and finishing your work in record time whilst listening to birdsong. This surely beats the hassle of traffic jams and public transport on a hot summer day.
Of course there are roles where it may not work as well. Some roles still require attending meetings in person and there are also benefits to that. Thanks to technology in the connected world we live in today, all this can be done over video calls. This is why remote work in Finland is adopted by more and more companies.
