The Story of Buutti

Right from the get-go in the Spring of 2017, our goal has been clear: to help people develop their programming skills. We have quickly grown from a group of four, enthusiastic founders to a 100-person IT-consulting and ICT-training company. During this time, we have helped thousands of young people, students and unemployed to develop their programming skills.

From 2018 on we have offered IT-consulting and software development services. Our biggest customers are from ICT, healthcare and IoT. Our main technologies are embedded Linux, C, C++, JavaScript, React, Node and C#.

Our programmers have experience from trainee-level to decades of programming and project management. As we see it, a software developer’s training is never finished. Our consultants are constantly working to educate themselves and improve their skills.

We are not too picky about our programmers’ formal education, mother tongue or necessarily even their work history. Our application process focuses on measuring the applicant’s real technical skills and passion for programming. Each of our consultants has had a technology-related hobby for years. For us, programming is more than just a job.
