Working in the cloud with an ear towards the ground
Within If’s tech community there are lots of opportunities to explore frontrunning technologies in an agile setting.
- We embrace DevOps way of working, Arttu says, when it comes to the mindset but also the tools and the processes. Personally, I’m really into Azure and cloud native applications right now. That’s where my main focus is, and it’s an area where I aim to learn even more.
But even though literally working in the cloud, Arttu always makes sure to keep an ear towards the ground. Before he came to If, he never thought about the insurance business as the kind of observing and analytical business it is.
- I enjoy keeping up with what’s happening in technology but also in society. An insurance company has so many touch points out there, and that’s really interesting. We need to know about innovations in the car industry as well as be updated about natural hazards and climate change.
Everything that affects our customers – whether they are huge companies or ordinary people – also affects us. That’s really interesting to think about.
