Torsten Kaufmann is our Sales Engineer for the DACH region.

“I started at MagiCAD in November 2019 as Sales Engineer for the DACH region. Together with my colleagues we are continuing to develop and expand MagiCAD’s business. The business is always different every day and that is very rewarding, because you never get bored and you always stay curious about what the next day will bring. Curiosity is also one of the reasons why I have joined MagiCAD. On the one hand, MEP is a completely new business for me and on the other, there are the customers – not just resellers with whom I have worked with earlier. The customer needs are also different from one appointment to the other. This brings a lot of joy to me.

The colleagues are all very helpful, even though we work in different countries. This is also a thing I find very exemplary at MagiCAD. Sometimes you also get different perspectives and ideas on how to advance the business.

We are on a good path and we work hard on it!”

Facundo Carignano Díaz is Technical Support Engineer working in the Technical Services team from Espoo office.

“I joined MagiCAD in September 2019 to complete my internship after finishing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

My duties are very diverse making the daily work quite exciting. The concept of growing together is not only a company value, it’s a reality. Feels great to be surrounded by a group of highly skilled colleagues willing to always spare a minute to help with any task, regardless of its complexity.

Working for a Finnish company with a multi-cultural environment fits my profile to perfection, as I am Argentine born, raised in Spain, have studied in Denmark and now I live in Finland. Even though we get the chance to do remote work, a day at the office feels like being home due to the extraordinary working atmosphere. It’s great to be part of this international company!”

Sauli Pihl is Software Engineer working from our Turku office.

“I’m new in the industry so learning new skills motivates me a lot. Everyone’s super talented in our team which makes MagiCAD software solutions an inspiring environment to work in. I learn a lot from the conversations with other team members and from the established working methods: code reviews and dev dojos. It truly feels like everyone’s trying to constantly improve though with a laid back attitude at the same time.”

Jaana Ruottu is working as Administrative Coordinator in MagiCAD’s Turku office.

What motivates you at work?
“I am motivated by the breadth and variety of my job description, interesting tasks, the ability to communicate in foreign languages every day and the self-direction of our team.”

How is MagiCAD Group different from other companies?
“MagiCAD Group differs from my previous work places as it is an agile, low-hierarchical organization, where the employer has confidence and trust in the professional skills and motivation of the employees to work for the company. Working conditions as well as equipment and tools I’m using also differ from previous places.”

Could you describe your usual work day?
“My usual work day involves as many financial management tasks as the physical delivery of our product to our customers. In addition, we have nice breaks with co-workers and these I enjoy a lot :)”

What is the best part of your work?
“The best part of my job is having really nice colleagues across the teams, strong internationality of the company (English is in daily use, both at work and at the coffee table), a nice working environment and working atmosphere, and a motivating job description and responsibilities within my role.”

How MagiCAD Group’s values affect to your everyday work?
“Perhaps the value of Grow Together for the MagiCAD Group is closest to my heart, because the good team spirit within the company, teamwork and collaboration with my colleagues and relaxed and liberated working atmosphere carry the company far. I find it important that one enjoys his or her own work and it is nice to come to work in the mornings. The strong indication of this is that even though it is possible to flexibly work remotely, I have not considered any remote days so far, but as a social type I prefer to work at the Turku office instead of the home office.”

Teemu Estola is working as Business Controller in our Finance team in Espoo. He joined the company in fall 2016 and has been in this interesting and gratifying role for a bit over three years now.

“At MagiCAD, employees are cared about and we have all the needed up-to-date tools we need to succeed and even exceed in our work. For instance, good occupational health-care services as well as first-class company benefits are good examples of this. In addition, I find that at MagiCAD, a lot of input and thought has been given into the work wellbeing and people feeling nice and good at work. What comes to tools and software, in our finance team, we have had possibility to choose the kind of tools and software that are working smoothly and making every day processes flowing effectively. Last year we took Adaptive Insight software into use, which I found a great example of this. It has revolutionized budgeting/forecasting processes as well as financial reporting throughout the Group. This is also the way we want to continue in the future as well.

Motivators? “First of all, it is very motivating to work in a growing company where there is continuous possibilities to develop the existing working methods and new processes. I have worked in MagiCAD Group for over three years now, and not once has there been a situation when no change was going on. This I find truly interesting and motivating. I think we have succeeded well in these changes and projects, and all of them have contributed to the Group well and took the company further.

Another great motivator to keep in mind is the excellent colleagues across the organization, as well as excellent team spirit within the team. Personally, I have experienced from the beginning that our team is and has always “pulled well together” and we help each other whenever needed. It really feels that (as one of our value states) we are growing together.”

Jari Mikkonen is working as a Project Manager and Software Developer for the Product Data Solutions team in Rauma.

“Since when I joined the company almost three years ago, I have managed projects for both Finnish and international customers, mainly from the Nordics and Central-Europe. As a developer, the main language I use is C# and Visual Studio is one of the tools I use daily. I develop plugins and connect applications for the MEP manufacturers. These applications work on AutoCAD, Revit, MagiCAD for Revit and MagiCAD for AutoCAD.

I enjoy that my work is diverse, it does not get tedious, and that there is always something new to learn. I find just the right balance of challenges from which I learn new things and develop continuously. My background is from IT engineering and HVAC technician side. Having that real life technician’s point of view, has benefited in my current work as I understand what would actually facilitate the designers’ work.

We have great team spirit. We work together and help each other whenever needed. There is a wide experience within the team and there is always someone to ask from. Even though our team members are located in offices in different cities, we keep up and share learnings on weekly bases. Having the opportunity to work with skilled professionals who are always ready to help, has deepened my own skills and knowledge in software development and also about HVAC and BIM.

Lastly, team events are also something I enjoy a lot. In addition, the office and company parties are brilliant events to regularly meet colleagues from different countries, get to know them better and just have fun together.”

Jani Leppäniemi is working as Software Engineer in Product Data Solutions.

“I joined the company in the beginning of 2019. I’m working in the Product Data Solutions team at our Rauma office. My daily work consists mainly of various project management and software development tasks.

It’s been a smooth start and I appreciate the flexibility with things like remote working possibilities. This is a big thing for me since I have a bit longer commute to work. The company also has a relaxed atmosphere and the people really rock! I enjoy learning new things and this job really offers many opportunities to stay curious.”

Miia Vainio is working as a software engineer in our MagiCAD for Revit team in Rauma. She has been part of MagiCAD Group family since 2015.

“The best part of my work as a software engineer are definitely my workmates. They are awesome and it is great that we have loads of humor in the office during the days. We work professionally aiming for the highest quality but it does not stop us from laughing a lot together too, even during busy times. I find that at MagiCAD Group you can be yourself. One can always get help from colleagues and there’s no need to think whether or not it is ok to ask. The atmosphere in our office is great and relaxed.

I have passion for learning new things and for constantly developing myself and here I have the chance to do it. In my work I use mainly C#, C++ and C++/CLI technologies and whenever needed I can update my skills in those or other needed technologies. In addition to coding, I find it very interesting to learn more about the building industry and BIM. What I do here for my work really finds meaning in our mission “We help create better buildings”. When I joined the company I did not have lot of understanding about the building industry but with help of colleagues who are professional in this field I have learned a lot and we get great things done together.

My work commute is somewhat long, but remote working possibilities and flexibility overall in MagiCAD Group is in such a good level that it is easy to balance one’s work and family life.”

Tia Jokinen is working as Marketing Campaigns and Graphic Design Specialist at marketing team.

“The best parts of my work are creativity, versatility, learning of new things and of course the best colleagues. I love that every day is different and you always learn something new. I have a creative background in graphic design and communication so for me it is super interesting to work with engineers and software developers. We see things from many different angles and that’s how we learn from each other a lot – every single day.

In an extremely positive way, MagiCAD Group is very different from the other companies. It is a very international company. We have 170 employees and yet, 20 different nationalities! Still, we have a very cosy, family like feeling where people truly trust and support each other.”

Johannes Netz started at MagiCAD’s Stockholm office in the late 2018 as a Technical Specialist for the Construction business.

What motivates you at work?
“The ability to try out new things and step out of the comfort zone using my experience from the Swedish construction industry to assist our international colleagues to improve in the best way possible. The environment is progressive and everyone encourages my own ideas both in and out of my specific area of business. It is a communicative staff with thoughtful communication channels to help me keep in touch with everyone regardless of location. This offers possibilities to discuss and learn from lots of different environments.”

What is the best part of your work?
“The best part of my everyday work is the versatility. One moment I am working with customer relations and the next one I’m supporting international colleagues in a technical matter. This is made possible by having great colleagues with lots of different skills that I can always ask and discuss different ideas with. This together with the friendly atmosphere makes it a great place to work.”

Sanna Kartano is a Sales Engineer for Manufacturer BIM Services working from our Rauma office.

What motivates you at work?
“For me it is important to work for a company with clear values that align with mine. MagiCAD’s mission to help create better buildings is concrete and meaningful and resonates with me. I trust in what we do as a company. In addition, I enjoy that I have the opportunity to develop myself at work, see different perspectives and increase my knowledge about our business. Working in sales is the best thing as I really enjoy helping people. Also, the working atmosphere in the whole MagiCAD Group is warm and very family like. I could not ask for better colleagues.”

How MagiCAD values affect to your everyday work?
“In my work I stay curious all the time! That is the driving force and a constant desire to learn more. I see a lot of potential to grow in my work in this great place to work.”

Miikka Toikka is an Account Manager for the UK and Irish markets. He works for MagiCAD Group Ltd at the Manchester based headquarters and specialises in MagiCAD for Revit software solutions, as well as any supporting training and consultancy service sales.

“I joined the company in mid-2016, being the 3rd UK employee. Since then, we’ve grown rapidly to be a company of 10 permanent staff members for our UK operations.

I’m a native Finn living in England for over a decade and it’s been a great opportunity to find and join a successful Finnish software company operating both in the UK and globally.

Working for the MagiCAD Group has been my favourite company to work for to date – you really are a part of the team with the possibility to influence and bring new ideas to the table. On top of the typical sales and business development work, I take part in technical meetings where we constantly see jaws drop when our in-house MEP Engineers demonstrate the features, tools and localised British workflow to our potential customers.

I’m proud to work for MagiCAD where I represent a company that delivers on its promises, markets a high-end software solution, and inspired me in my day-to-day working role. Our technical team is consistently aiming to innovate our MEP product portfolio and bring new tools to the market that truly benefit our clients.”

Samuli Kaikkonen is working as Technical Support Engineer at Technical Services team.

“I joined the company four years ago and I’m working in our Rauma office. The best thing about my work is that we have very good team spirit and feeling of togetherness here. It’s nice to come to work every day as we move forward together towards common goals. We help each other without hesitation whenever there are challenges, that’s why great results achieved at work.

What makes my work also interesting is that I have the possibility to work with people from different countries and cultures, both within the company and with outside partners and interest groups. My daily work is rather versatile as it consists of parts related to customer service and interacting with them, but also of group and independent work related to testing, investigating and developing MagiCAD software, ways of working and doing things, as well as customer related work. One of the biggest motivators for me is that my work is challenging at a level that suits me best and I can freely influence and determine how much challenges I want to have.

From our company values, “grow together” is very meaningful for me as we truly work here towards our common goals as a big family, and within that, I always do my best whether it is my own or any other colleague’s project or task. I feel very proud of working here.”

Edgar Chan is a technical engineer for MagiCAD (as well as Cubicost) at our sister company Glodon International in Singapore.

What motivates you at work?
“I enjoy introducing MagiCAD to people who have never heard of it. It is always great to see their faces when they see what is possible to do with it. I am also really motivated by helping people and showing them how our solution can help them to reduce current workflow issues. I also work with some great team members globally in Singapore, Finland, Hong Kong, Malaysia and China.”

How is MagiCAD different than other companies?
“I like the working environment, because you can share information freely. Everyone is willing to help which is great, sometimes because I am so far away form our MagiCAD technical people it can feel rather lonely but the teams in other countries really use our communication software to help in that.”

What is the best part of your work?
“I really enjoy doing trainings and giving solutions to issues that companies are having. I get a lot of motivation out of hearing customers’ needs and then showing them how MagiCAD can fix them – seeing their satisfaction is always good.”

What motivates you at work?

Some of them even become friends which is a great thing and really motivates me to provide the best service and value for them. I really enjoy and am motivated by learning new things as MEP is a new field for me and I also enjoy dealing with our colleagues in other markets like Finland.”

How is MagiCAD different than other companies?
“Due to the time difference I really welcome the efficiency in getting back to me. I enjoy the team work atmosphere that my colleagues bring from Finland. We work hard when we are in Singapore, but I enjoy that we have a common goal and working with international colleagues.”

What is the best part of your work?
“I get to deal with a fantastic product and I enjoy meeting new people and helping them solve their problems.”

Anna-Sofia Rantanen is our People & Culture Director at the Rauma office.

“I’m working in HR at MagiCAD and enjoy it a lot. My days are versatile with recruitment, personnel and organisation development responsibilities. I have usually many things on my table and the days are different. There’s always interesting tasks to handle, which I find great and motivating.

In my work, I have the possibility to help people to develop and succeed at their work, support their work well-being and different stages of employment life-cycle, as well as, to do things together with creative and professional colleagues. At the same time, I learn a lot myself and have possibility to also share my learnings with colleagues.

I love working in our Rauma office where the whole office has been built based on personnel’s wishes and decisions. Visiting regularly also other Group offices brings a nice variation to daily work. In a dynamic but relaxed working style with the colleagues, we are doing great things on our way to grow together and stay ahead of the game in our journey to become “kings of BIM”.

I find it fantastic that at MagiCAD you can be yourself and stay curious. Work itself is challenging but rewarding. Colleagues are the best that one could wish for and we also know how to have fun together.

I started as Marketing Assistant but after a while, my role grew and now I’m working as Marketing Coordinator, mainly for the Swedish market but also supporting the International market.”

What motivates you at work?

My position has evolved during the years and currently, my responsibilities include developing MagiCAD for Revit software. I am mostly involved with new Revit product family creation and related new functionalities.

One thing that I appreciate very much is the possibility to work remotely. I was able to work from Sri Lanka and Nepal for 2 years. I think it is great that the company cares about the employees as individuals with our specific needs and capabilities.”

Tomi Harju is one of our new Software Testing Engineers in Rauma.

What motivates you at work?
“As a testing engineer I help developers with creating new features and fixing issues. It is motivating to see that the feedback that comes from our testing team is taken into the product development to make our software even better.”

Can you describe a usual work day?
“My usual work day consists of checking tasks accompanied with a nice cup of cappuccino. From time to time, I get away from my desk to flex my upper body and play a billiard game with colleagues.”

What is the best part of your work?
“It’s definitely freedom to schedule my own work and the possibility to work remotely. The work atmosphere at MagiCAD is spectacular. There’s lots of laughter in one day.”

During my career I have however worked with different aspects of product data including the development of our unique product data concept, modelling BIM objects, sales and running teams and projects.”

“The best part of my work is definitely working with people – seeing that the company is full of MagiMakers who enjoy working closely together. It is a joy to be in contact with our manufacturer customers to better understand their needs and share the MEP/BIM knowledge we have in house to find the best solutions for them.”

Diego has more than 15 years of experience in managing and sales in the publishing business. Attracted by new technologies and innovative ideas, he now meets the challenge of working for an IT company with great enthusiasm and commitment.

“Interest in Italy towards BIM is increasing rapidly. More and more, engineering firms are evaluating its use. MagiCAD for Revit also, has been a great success. Customers have found enormous immediate benefits in MagiCAD and this has made Italy a strategic country for MagiCAD. In Italy, we have a good predisposition and market factors for becoming the leading provider for MEP design solutions.”

Johanna Jilsen is Office Manager and Customer Services Representative located in our Gothenburg office.

What is your main responsibility?
“I’m in constant communication with the sales team about the layout and timing of our MagiCAD training courses and finding ways to best meet our customers’ needs through them. Coordinating the timetables of customers, technicians and training locations can be tricky. Fortunately, that is one of the things I find very rewarding in my job – finding a solution for someone’s problem that works well for all parties.”

What do you find special about MagiCAD?
“It’s the first workplace where it has been openly communicated that it is okay to make mistakes and that they are seen as opportunities for improvement. Knowing that no one is asking for perfection when I’m trying something new has made me feel safe here. It’s easier to be curious for new challenges. I also want to mention that my colleagues are always supporting and sharing their knowledge with me. They are a big part of making me feel safe and happy at work.”

Fred van Schaik is our DACH Area Manager based in Germany.

At MagiCAD, we are very enthusiastic about Information and cloud technologies. We believe that we can make a difference by providing MEP engineering tools for optimisation planning, construction and BIM communication processes.

One of the greatest values of MagiCAD is to Stay Curious. For me, curiosity and passion are vital every day. Part of my daily job is to present MagiCAD’s value proposition to different people. This is a good opportunity for me to travel and meet interesting people with great ideas. My aim is to fully support the resellers and customers in realising their ideas, objectives and creating win-win situations.”

“I am happy to start my work days with a cup of coffee and laid-back but extremely professional colleagues from all around the globe who are always up for the challenge. Working atmosphere is encouraging and motivating and we also celebrate success together.

I appreciate my colleagues’ way to stay curious and take part in the AfterWork Yoga class that I get to teach them every now and then in Turku, Espoo and Rauma offices. With possibility to improve one’s skills by relevant courses and training and having the needed work equipment it is easy to be ahead of the game!”

Jukka Nyman is the Managing Director of MagiCAD and he’s working in our office in Espoo, Finland. Jukka has been the lead for accelerating our growth and internationalisation. What motivates him most at work?”Joining MagiCAD around three years ago has been an excellent choice for me, as here I can honestly say that I am able to make a real difference – helping our customers to create better buildings.

Jukka has over 15 years in executive and management roles from international technology companies. What’s unique about MagiCAD?

“What is very different in MagiCAD is the closeness, friendliness and supportive work atmosphere, which really makes you feel welcomed every single day. Working together with a great team in the best company in our industry is something that is a true diffentiator for us. This has even tangible proof points in MagiCAD’s Great Place To Work results.”
