Freelance developers from Thriv working on medical image analysis at the growth-minded Aiforia

Innovation has been guiding the culture of Aiforia since the medical image analysis company was founded in 2013. While the company has faced rapid growth during recent years, it has maintained an agile mentality. Thus, working with freelance developers and supporting entrepreneurship is a natural choice for Aiforia.

The Finnish AI software company Aiforia has been on a steady growth track during recent years. For example, in 2021 the company became publicly listed and employs today around 100 people. According to Yrjö Häme, Product Owner at Aiforia, the growth is also expected to continue in the future: “Digitalisation is now growing in the field of pathology, which means that the demand for our AI powered medical image analysis tools will continue to increase.”

Building a better future for healthcare

An agile spirit and a proactive mentality are aspects that have been an integral part of Aiforia’s culture since the company was founded in 2013. These cultural aspects also explain a big part of Aiforia’s success: “The people at Aiforia are extremely dedicated: they want to be a part of our story and build a brighter, better future for healthcare”, explains Häme.

Due to the pioneering culture at Aiforia, it has always been a natural choice for the company to work with freelancers. “Particularly on the development side, some team members work as external consultants”, Häme states and continues, “Our emphasis is that we find the best developers, regardless of their affiliation. By hiring the best tech experts on the market, we ensure that our clients get the service they deserve.”

Remarkable value from freelance developers

Aiforia has already used the services of Thriv multiple times to find freelance developers to their projects, especially in the fields of frontend and integration driven development. “Due to our history with Thriv, we can be confident and trust the quality of their service”, says Häme.

Häme doesn’t save praising words when describing the three freelance developers, Ossi Puustinen, Ilkka Sivonen (Miili Consulting), and Jarkko Malinen, that the company has found through Thriv: “They have all been excited about our work and mission since the very beginning of their projects. All of the freelance developers that Thriv connected us with have been working on very demanding tasks and brought remarkable contribution to Aiforia. I am impressed by their know-how and dedication.”

Smooth hiring with Thriv

Häme advises other companies to consider working with freelance developers especially on three occasions. First, if you want to be fast in finding top talents to your development team. Second, if you want to expand beyond the pool of applicants applying to join your company as in-house employees. And third, if you need to find a developer with special niche knowledge. “Working with Thriv has helped our hiring process tremendously and freed time for other important areas of business”, Häme concludes.
