“I have always felt empowered and encouraged to develop myself and use my full potential in my working environment. It has always motivated me to learn more. But still the best part is our own strong culture which makes me feel as important part of Nokia family.”

I am part of a team doing specification and development work for highly efficient System on Chips (SoCs), that will be used in the next generation of 5G base stations, on the latest process technologies. I'm connected with many experts both here in Espoo and all around the world, so there's always something new to learn every day.”
