Olli's successful career path from intern to Head of Product and team leader
Who: Olli Järvinen, Head of SuiteApp products
My career at Staria began in a salary management internship in 2010 when I was finishing my studies in applied sciences. I was about to graduate as BBA in Financial Management, with only my internship period and thesis left. My internship went well and I continued working in the same team throughout the summer. The summer job became a permanent position and my journey at Staria is still ongoing.
After working for three years as a salary specialist, I was given the position of system consultant, which involved maintaining and developing salary, cost and travel claim, purchase invoice and payment transaction software. I was already the main user of the salary management system and responsible for implementations while working in financial management, so the role of system consultant was a logical step. After working for four years as a consultant, I was given a leading position. First, I was the project manager for the NetSuite team for about a year. From there, I moved over to the position as manager of the support system team. At the end of 2020, I took over the NetSuite SuiteApp business team, including business development and management role. In October 2021 I moved to SuiteApp team completely and became responsible for the products that Staria develops.
