At Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2016, Ella Romanos, Commercial Director at Strike Gamelabs, led a panel in a discussion on the hows and whys of talent acquisition for mobile developers.

Joining her were:

Juha Huhtakallio, CEO of Hisome;
Arja Martikainen, Senior Consultant at Game Jobs Finland;
Kim Soares, CEO of Kukouri Mobile Entertainment

Old and new

"If you take someone who is fresh out of school, they are much cheaper than a veteran," said Soares, but he noted that the veteran employees will pay for themselves in the experience and speed they have over a rookie.

"There is a place for everyone," added Martikainen, saying that while there are hundreds of developers in Finland to potentially work with, there may be a job elsewhere in the world for a candidate to consider.
