The Strength in Numbers

Exove - Strength in numbers to select the best open technology tool for each case

Yesterday I was reading LinkedIn when someone asked what would be the best platform for an online store? The first few answers to the question were to be expected when different people started offering their companies Number One Product™.

Before joining Exove I had worked in companies where there were only a few developers. This usually leads to the situation where you can only master one product.

But what if the customer has specifics needs? Are you able to fit your square product through a circular hole?

Exoven kasvu jatkuu – toimisto Tampereelle

Exoven Tampereen toimiston sisäänkäynti

Vallitsevasta taloustilanteesta huolimatta Exoven kasvu jatkuu. Yritys on avannut helmikuun alussa toimipisteen Tampereelle Factory Klingendahliin. Tällä hetkellä työtä tehdään Tampereella kahden henkilön voimin, mutta tulevaisuudessa toimipisteen uskotaan kasvavan. 

Year 2014 in HR Nutshell

View from Exove's office in Helsinki in early January 2015

As many other people around new year I am cleaning up my endless list of to-dos. I do the closing of the year always in the same way; taking my little black notebook and checking all the year's to-do lists to check if there has been something worth revisiting or perhaps even replicating. I also check the statistics, how we're grown and what type of people we now have – this is not only a vital part of the planning process but also sort of rewarding on personal level.

Protecting Our Customers with Open Source

Open source security updates, Drupal and Poodle

The past week has marked a pronounced peak in our maintenance operations: on Wednesday, we woke up to what immediately seemed like an unscheduled server maintenance day to patch the POODLE SSL/TLS vulnerability. Despite the overall moderate threat level, we quickly concluded to issue an extra server maintenance cycle since the vulnerability carries a considerable confidentiality impact and we know our customers are very meticulous with privacy.

Passion, Gratitude & Open Source

WordPress meetup in Exove Tallinn office

"WordPress saved my life". This profound statement striked me and ignited my curiosity to hear more about what the speaker had to share. The passion could be felt in our office in Tallinn during the WordPress meetup which we sponsored last Thursday. It started after usual working hours, and Kaarel Veike, the organizer of the event, was ready to share his insights and experience as a WordPress aficionado.
