Helping our customers to succeed with digital services. See my LinkedIn recommendations for the feedback I have received from my work.
I helped to develop variety of software from payment backend system to mobile SDKs, lead projects and did everything to create a new business out from data analytics based digital marketing.
Anyone can sit down to head an established project with a steady delivering team, but real professionals stand up when stepping in to a project which is a mess upon arrival, organizing specifications and the team is challenging, pressure is mounting and project is in somewhat of a deadlock. I saw Juha juggling skillfully, calmly and professionally in a cross-current of many factions and technologies and playing well with the cards he had. During my career spanning two decades, I have seen a plethora of project managers and Juha's skills put him in my top project managers ever. Needless to say, I would work again with him any time.
I had a great chance to work with Juha Salo in different projects with all kinds of scopes and complexities, and I could not agree more that Juha was the main force that pushed and enabled the success of those projects. He is very reliable, knowledgable and eager to help everyone, both in term of technicals and project management matters. Working with Juha is a great joy since he pushes the team to do the right things at the right time while still considering about other team members. His contribution was not limited to the team projects, he also gave many great organizational and process advice to the technical department and the company, which is very rare and valuable for a technical consultant. I definitely can recommend Juha to any projects that need a well-understanding, competent, and efficient project lead.
Juha is one of the best business-oriented tech professionals, I've had the privilege to work with. Juha is a driven and a proactive guy, always striving to improve, no matter what he is working on. Clear thinking and solid argumentation skills allow Juha to make a difference where it counts. On a personal level, Juha is an easygoing person and great fun to work with. Big thumbs up for him.
