About Us

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hey there, welcome to MidWork! Let me introduce myself โ€” Iโ€™m Onni, the solo founder behind this project.

Iโ€™ve discovered that searching for new job opportunities can be incredibly time-consuming, especially for someone like me, who thrives in software engineering rather than sales. This process often feels like a whole different skill set, distinct from actually being good in the job itself. The friction Iโ€™ve encountered has fueled my curiosity to develop a product not only to streamline my own job search but also to assist others in finding their next workplace ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿ‘ท๐Ÿผ๐Ÿญ.

With over a decade of software engineering and leadership experience, I bring a wealth of experience to the table. My journey in the tech realm has been quite the ride, with a strong focus on crafting solutions for ecommerce, payments, and accounting systems. Iโ€™ve had the privilege of working with very interesting clients, where my contributions have translated into millions of euros in revenue growth and cost savings ๐Ÿ“ˆ.

But itโ€™s not all about numbers for me. As someone who values inclusivity and growth, I found immense satisfaction in fostering the growth of my team members. One particular highlight was guiding a mid-level team member to seniority and later on management position, showcasing my dedication to mentorship and growth ๐Ÿค.

Beyond the screen, Iโ€™m all about embracing lifeโ€™s adventures. Whether itโ€™s paddling down rivers ๐Ÿ›ถ, rope climbing rocky cliffs ๐Ÿง—, or immersing myself in the thrill of outdoor hikes ๐Ÿฅพ, youโ€™ll find me there. And when itโ€™s time to unwind, I enjoy nothing more than savoring a craft beer ๐Ÿป, diving into a classic films ๐ŸŽฅ, or over-analyzing my moves over a board games ๐ŸŽฒ.

Rooted in Tallinn, Estonia ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช, I share my life with my wife and our beloved Labrador retriever. Our adventures, whether traversing the European landscape in our custom camper van or exploring local treasures, speak volumes about our shared love for exploration and discovery.

As you embark on your job-seeking journey with MidWork, know that my passion for software engineering, coupled with my genuine interest on helping people, will guide every step of the way. I hope this will be an interactive relationship so let me know how we can build something incredible together!

Yours truly, Onni Hakala
