Unicus expands to Finland and has established Unicus in Helsinki, April 2019. Jukka Mikkonen is recruited as CEO to lead Unicus Finland.
Unicus is a consulting company focused on testing and quality assurance of IT systems, where all consultants have ASD / Asperger’s syndrome. The characteristics that come with the diagnosis have been found to be particularly useful in the area of test, quality assurance and data science.
A lot of people are left outside the job market, even if they have extraordinary skills. Yet, at the same time the Finnish employers have a lack of competent workforce.
Unicus business concept is to offer high-quality IT services in testing and quality assurance and doing this with people who are left outside the labor market.
Combining the market demand and unutilized competence is a unique concept says Jukka Mikkonen, Managing Director Unicus Finland.
