Employee introduction: Antti Varjoinen, Software Architect

“At Compile, I was impressed by the company’s values, the focus on high quality and sustainable development, and the customer- and employee-centred way of running the company,” says Antti Varjoinen.

In 2019, when Antti was considering the next challenges, he was offered many roles. At the same time, however, he decided to apply himself to work at Compile. Today, this M.Sc. (Computer Science) helps customers solve the challenges of digitalisation: he works as a hands-on architect designing and implementing digital solutions, as well as sparring on DevOps, agile development and cloud migration, among others.

“I feel like a generalist, so to speak,” Antti ponders. “So, on the one hand, I can understand and plan large entities, and on the other hand, I can also code and get my hands dirty executing those plans.”

Antti’s interest in the soul of machines began as a child — and was deepened by a powerful computer acquired by the family (with an i386 chip, a CPU of a couple of dozen megahertz, a memory of a few kilobytes, a hard drive of a few dozen megabytes). In the end, his path took him from the coding-oriented field at the University of Jyväskylä to Compile.

Antti, who speaks many programming languages fluently, has been building the automation of the customer order-delivery chain, the self-service portal, the automation of invoicing processes and the digitalisation of industry. In terms of the actual implementation work, Antti often works in the areas of back-end systems and infrastructure, data management and architecture.

“Because I feel more like an architect, I like to be able to design solutions in projects together with the customer, and not all things have to be spoon-fed to the customers.” he describes.

“I also feel it is important that projects work on meaningful solutions.”

the eNPS calculation is based on the Employee Net Promoter Score formula developed by Fred Reichheld, which was originally used to study the customer experience and customer satisfaction of companies. Lately, it has also been used to research employee satisfaction (e as in employee + NPS).

This is how the calculation is performed.

We ask our employees once a year, “How likely are you to recommend your workplace to friends or acquaintances on a scale of 0 to 10?” Then we ask for clarification with an open question: “Why did you submit this score?”.

Those who submit a score of 9 or 10 are called promoters. Those who submit a score from 0 to 6 are called detractors.

The eNPS result is calculated by subtracting the relative percentage of detractors from the relative percentage of promoters. Other answers are allocated a score of 0.

The calculation results can be anything from -100 to +100. Results between +10 and +30 are considered to be good, and results above +50 are considered to be excellent.
