Jinu John: Fascinated by Finland’s contribution to technology

Jinu is a senior IT expert from Kochi, India. He heard about Talent Call Turku from his friend Chandru who has lived in Finland for several years and thought the competition was like made for Jinu.

“I heard about the job opportunities in the IT field in Turku and decided to apply. Finland’s contribution to technology, like Nokia, Angry Birds and Linux, is something that fascinates me”, Jinu says.

He has over a decade’s experience in designing and streamlining ITSM processes. He has spent eight years of his career working for international companies like Shell, Philips and Capita. Besides his core competence in ITIL, Jinu is for example a black belt trained and green belt certified Six Sigma wizard with adept project management skills.  

Along with the five other winners of Talent Call Turku, Jinu will dive deep into the business life, nature, culture and services of the Turku region on the week-long trip in August. He will be accompanied by his wife Meera who has been working in the software field for around the same time as Jinu, and their two energetic kids, Jonathan and Ashlyn. The family has lived in the United Kingdom for three years, so they are familiar with the idea of moving and living abroad.

“We have never been to Finland, but we are familiar with the Nordic culture and appreciate Finland’s commitment to cleanliness. We would be happy to relocate to Turku.”
