Antti Kaakinen

Senior Inspector Antti Kaakinen works as an intranet and internet service manager in the Systems Development and Project Services sector.

"I am a Master of Science, and my major subject was computer science. When I was about to finish my studies, an interesting position fell vacant in what was then called the ICT Service Centre for the Judicial Administration. I started in a post that was then fixed-term for six months and has since continued on a permanent basis. During an organisational reform, the office was transferred to the Legal Register Centre.

The best part of my work lies in being able to develop systems that are important to Finnish citizens. I feel that I have a calling for this, it's cool to work for the Government. The work is very self-driven – I am aware of my goals, but I am allowed to use my own judgment and be master of my own calendar."
