Top 20 Software Development Workplaces in Finland 2018

Last year we published a Developer’s Top50 Workplaces -list which was a hit! This year we created a vote where anyone in and outside our network could vote for their favorite software companies and help us create a list of the best workplaces for developers. Of course, there is no such thing as one best workplace because we all value different things, but one thing is for sure: All the companies on this list are developer friendly.

Here it is, the top 20 software development workplaces in Finland 2018.
