Interesting projects, competent colleagues and a high salary.


Rocket Scientist – top notch developers and architects

A consulting firm in its preteens, Rakettitiede hosts developers with an impressive range of IT and Internet skills. Our daily grind consists of working with web and mobile services, IoT and embedded systems.

Our experienced consultants (also known as "Rocket Scientist") carry out high-quality full-stack, mobile or embedded software development regardless of the size or industry of the client. Rocket Scientists work as consulting developers/architects in client assignments, typically at the client’s premises or remotely wherever they like.


Our clients

Our projects range from short spurts to continuous, several years lasting collaboration, and our clients range from startups to listed companies.  There’s one common factor though: the work is both interesting and challenging. And, of course, provides an opportunity for professional development.

We choose the technologies that best fit the purpose of the project, taking the current situation and the future goals into consideration. We want to serve our customers well, also not leaving them behind with choices and codebase they’d be in trouble with after we are gone.

Sometimes the customer has already made their tech choices when we come in. In such a case, we bring in developers/architects that meet the requirements of the existing technology stack and make the best out of it.


In addition to interesting assignments and a hefty salary, we offer you a supportive and skilled group of colleagues. Discover who these people are by visiting our Marketplace – who knows, maybe you’ll be our next vict... resource!

Why should you board the Rocket?

Rakettitiede has the best salaries and coworkers in the business.

We believe that skilled developers are supposed to be paid in accordance with their productivity. Our “Pay more and save” slogan aimed at our clients is a great way to describe this efficiency: it’s cheaper to choose a seasoned professional who does things right the first time than to pay less for mediocre work that takes too long to finish.

Our central values include respecting others, transparency, professionalism, collaboration, learning and a fundamental “no BS” attitude.

4 reasons for boarding the Rocket

1. Interesting assignments and skilled colleagues

Software development is not rocket science, but there are differences between the projects you get to work on in consulting business. We put lots of effort in finding and winning the interesting work that would keep our people motivated. Rocket Scientists are the ones who love solving problems and building elegant solutions, not the ones to just write code after someone else has done all the thinking for them.

Clients appreciate our rocket scientists not only for their expertise but also for the fact that they work well together with others. Our consultants’ array of tools include state-of-the-art technologies and solutions, and we’re not afraid to learn new things when the situation calls for it.

And whether you’re the mad scientist or bohemian artist type, you’re bound to find some like-minded people onboard the Rocket. Our Rocket Scientists talk about IT a lot, but you shouldn’t have any problems finding someone to talk to if you want to discuss things like business, biology or bouldering. And cats. Who wouldn’t love cats.

2. A culture for adult tastes

Our central values include respecting others, transparency, professionalism, collaboration, learning and a fundamental "no BS" attitude.

One of our rocket scientists called our shuttle "a consulting company for adults". While they might’ve been on to something there, quite often our inner 7-year-olds take over and play around tongue-in-cheek. Yet, we are adults when we come to work in the morning and go home in the evening, we get paid adult money and talk about things by their real names.

And we’re not afraid to learn new things when the situation calls for it.

We don’t have parties every week, the upholstery of our office sofas doesn’t change according to the most recent trends and we don’t organise any table hockey tournaments at the office. But of course, we spend time together at our traditional summer, crayfish and Christmas parties and every once in a while organised get-togethers. And when you need a break you can always open #random in Slack and enjoy the black comedy and sarcasm along with your smart and fun colleagues. Well actually, sarcasm is something you cannot avoid with us whatever channel you choose to open.

3. Boasting some of the best salaries in the industry

From the very beginning, the basic idea of Rakettitiede has been to pay well for good work. This idea stems directly from the huge productivity differences between developers: software is not made by an anonymous resource but a human being. With us, you get 50 % of your customer billing. Our pay is significantly higher than the average salaries in the industry – and you don’t have to work overtime to achieve it.

 The average annual earnings of our consultants are about 95k (if full paid holidays, statistics from 2019). As the hourly price for different projects may vary, holidays and sick leaves are paid according to the central salary. If the Rocket Scientist doesn’t charge a customer, the monthly salary is 2 800 €.


4. Great benefits

Our benefits are exactly the same as those of the best companies in the industry, but with us, you get to choose the projects that you think you’d enjoy the most. We believe the best work is carried out by people who work on things that are genuinely interesting to them.

But since you’re here and want some more details, here are some of our benefits: comprehensive Extra Health Insurance, the opportunity to choose your own tools, lunch benefit and a living-room-like office at the centre of Helsinki. As long as your customer doesn’t have any preferences for where and when you should do your work, we don’t really care either.
