Hear directly from our team

For me, the best thing at Laavu is the freedom: I'm free to tailor my work and days according to my own preferences. Not to forget, the team is simply amazing. I've never experienced a team spirit – actually, we like to call it a "Laavu Spirit" – anywhere else. My favourite memory is our karaoke show in Slush 22. The whole team sang their hearts out.

Growth Lead

At Laavu, our mission and values drive our daily work. The level of autonomy and flexibility here is remarkable, which I absolutely love. As someone who thrives on change, I appreciate how I can work intensely one week and then enjoy a break the next. It's a fantastic place to work, thanks to the strong commitment to our mission and the freedom we have.

Why Laavu?

Culture

We are extremely proud of our culture (as if that isn’t something any company would say). Laavu is filled with warm, real, and ambitious people. We are not afraid to have difficult conversations, admit our mistakes or show our vulnerabilities. We are not big on the hierarchy as we believe everyone knows how to do their job best. However, we’re always there for each other.

We could write an essay on how amazing we are and how much fun we have together (you wouldn’t believe it anyway), but the best way is to see it yourself – so just call one of us or come visit our office!

Growth

Growth is at the very center of our operations and culture. We believe for Laavu to grow, we need our employees to grow as well. That’s why each employee starts with an extensive onboarding before working with clients. In addition to growing by coaching our bright and demanding clients, as a psychologist, you also get to develop yourself in weekly steering meetings, 1on1s, and training sessions. Also, our psychologists have versatile tasks that go beyond the work of a traditional psychologist.

Clients

Laavu’s client base is unique. It consist of founders, CEOs, and other high-performing individuals. They are very motivated to challenge themselves and work towards their goal. Working with them, you get to immerse yourself in meaningful conversations with amazingly bright people, which is a great opportunity to learn new things and get new perspectives. Typically, you get to work with each client for more than 6 months which makes it possible to build meaningful relationships and work on complex topics.

Compensation

And did we mention that you also get paid for doing this? Compensation covers a monthly salary of 3 800€ - 4 600€ and employee benefits (a laptop, a phone + Epassi).
