Mira Ojamo works at Knowit as a Systems Specialist
Mira does maintenance for several clients in an operative team where the people are of “absolutely prime quality”. Knowit’s commitment to diversity and the support of the work community has enabled Mira to be herself – The Windows lady with a ton of competence.
Born in Valkeakoski, Mira moved to Tampere 12 years ago and has worked the last nine of them for Knowit. The office is a 10-minute walk away from her home. As a social person, Mira enjoys working at the office, even though the work could easily be done from anywhere.
Before Knowit, Mira’s only work experience in the IT industry was the six-month work placement in her Bachelor's degree. She got a job in the middle of her studies and, as sometimes happens in the IT field, dropped out of school. Like many others at Knowit, Mira started at the on-call Service Desk. She says it’s a great place to learn best practices as well as house habits and get to know the environment. There was a skill test in the job interview, but Mira says the majority of her competence has been gained at work.
"I've learned so much here you cannot imagine. When I came to Knowit, I knew nothing about PowerShell, for example, and I had never been to a data center. Just saying that something interests me has brought me opportunities to learn new things", Mira says happily.
