What makes us different

A partnership of equals

Our partnerships last decades. Our clients remain with us not only for world-class software and our dedicated-teams model, but because our relationship is a true partnership.


Financially tied to the success

Every Helmes employee is financially tied to their clients’ success. The result is a highly-motivated team that takes full responsibility for solving problems.


Thinking and acting as one

Within our dedicated teams model, each team member understands the objectives and contributes to fulfilling the business goals.

Employees who stay

Helmes’ ability to motivate and empower top talent has made us one of the most sought-after employers for IT professionals. We plot, monitor, and execute ten-year career development paths, which translates into an unrivaled environment for team performance.

Thanks to the unique Helmes team model, my team has a lot of freedom to try out new approaches and do exactly what works best for us and our customer. We are independent in what we do and how we do it, and in my opinion this is a great opportunity to design our own path for growth and learning. Helmes people are some of the coolest I have ever met, and I get to hang out with them every day!
Esther Lätte
Team Lead
I really enjoy the team spirit. I have the best team in the world, though it seems that everyone at Helmes has the best team in the world. You’re always greeted with a smile when you arrive, and you have all the mentoring and support you need to tackle even the most complex challenges.
Cassio Korogui
Lead Developer
I’m really impressed by Helmes’ culture. It’s pleasantly Nordic: caring and autonomous, yet at the same time it has the power to be bold and effective. All the managers are extremely approachable and supportive. I feel I have the freedom to pursue my goals with all the backup when needed. It’s a great feeling.

We speak your language

Talking tech

It is no surprise that we’re versed in a broad stack of technologies. Where we differ is that our teams pride themselves on knowing how to select and use multiple technologies to achieve a single, business-critical goal.

How the relationship begins

We use the Quick Start model for onboarding new projects. In order to gain a holistic understanding, we conduct a thorough analysis of your business’s IT infrastructure.

Step 1: Fact check, test assumptions

Plan the work, work the plan. Proper formulation and planning of the project ensures success.

Step 2: Identify weaknesses

Find gaps and weak points in the project and understand how to counter them.

Step 3: Make the business case

Document and delineate the project in sufficient detail so development time and cost are clear.
