Jyri Jokinen is a former software engineer turned product manager turned project manager and suchlike. He used to work for Nokia, from where he was downsized, after which he worked for Elisa (a Finnish broadband and mobile carrier), from where he was also downsized. Bored with the life at big corporations, he went on to work for a cloud gaming company, G-cluster. But he was downsized from there, too. Having quite some experience from finding jobs, he decided to make a tool to help him be more effective.

Jani Vaalima is an enthusiastic media planner and project manager, part-time graphic designer and musician. He has been working for a Finnish media house, Talentum, and he's the guy who knows how to talk to people. Jani doesn't have nearly as much experience about being let go, so he'll just trust Jyri on that one.
