Meet our people: Jari-Pekka

For couple last months we've being introducing our team and this time we would like to give you a bit more info about our Director of Business Development: Jari-Pekka Pulliainen

Tell us something about yourself?

“Hello! I am Jari-Pekka Pulliainen, the Director of Business Development at Variantum. My job is to help Variantum to grow. I am concentrating especially to the sales & brand awareness and how we do our customer engagement even better, so that we can help our existing and future customers to succeed.

Me and my wife have two kids, 4- and 1-year-olds. So normally I don´t need to think what I would like to do with the free time. Anyway, If I have free time after the family, I love doing different kind of sports varying from cycling to gym and golfing. I also like reading and I hope that I will have more time for it in the future. “

What would your family say if they had to describe you with a few words?

“Well umm… My kids like me :D… Maybe I need to ask from them how they would describe me?"

What is your professional history like and how did you end up at Variantum?

“I studied in Lappeenranta University of Technology and graduated as a Master of Science in Accounting. In my past I have worked in different kind of sales positions from a consultant to executive roles in different IT and service companies, since 2006.

I believe that networking is extremely important in today’s job market and I am thankful for all the connections during my career and studies. That´s basically the reason which led me to the place I am at now in Variantum.

I started working at Variantum at the beginning of this year. I joined Variantum because I felt that we have great potential for growth and on a personal level I was interested about the challenge to work in different size and type of organization than I have worked before."

What is the best thing about working at Variantum?

“I get to do tasks and projects that vary a lot and each day is different. I also like the possibility that we can make really fast decisions when we see that something is not working for us. That´s something which is not self-evident in all companies."

What motivates you?

“I need a clear goal in mind motivates me the most. I love the challenges both in a professional and personal life. For example, the goal in working out is that I am fit enough to actively be with my family. After having my two lovely children the focus has changed a little because in addition to the professional goals which I have, I also want to be a good father and a good family member. It is also important to be able to take time off from the everyday life. I have a big circle of friends with whom I like to spend time."

Where do you see Variantum in 5 years?

“I hope that we have managed at least double the size of the company and we have both Finnish and international customers. Variantum will be a well-known software company in its own domain “

Thanks for the interview. Do you have any greetings for the readers?

“Thank you. After a well spend and rested summer it is nice to get back to work!”
