Esa Takkinen

Sales Manager

Esa got interested in NAPA because it’s different from most maritime companies – it’s a global software house and NAPA solutions are present everywhere in the ship industry from ship design to operations. He says that due to this fact he learned how the whole ship building process works – a thing you don’t learn just by studying.

Claudiu Potorac

Manager, Maintenance Services

“NAPA’s way of working in self-management is a huge asset. There is no management pressure which allows for planning the work as you want to do it. And now, you can even work remotely from anywhere.”

Cristina-Ioana Casapu

Software Developer

“NAPA is a good place to start your career from. It’s like a programming hub, where many products and projects are simultaneously ongoing. My colleague once said that the software you are working on/developing is like a baby, which you grow and take care of for it to evolve.

Helong Wang

Senior Software Developer

Helong Wang relocated to Finland when he took up the role of Senior Software Developer at NAPA. In his work, Helong develops new features for NAPAShipping Solutions’ products and feels that he can make full of use of his skills and talent in this role.

Vlad-Alexandru Dorobantu

Test Engineer

For someone living in Romania, working at a self-managed company is a rare and unique experience, because this is simply not common in our (Romanians) culture.

Trainee opportunities at NAPA

One way to join NAPA is to become a Trainee. As a Trainee at NAPA, you become an integral member of the team and get to work on actual tasks, and you’ll have a mentor to pair up with and guide you in the beginning. The trainee path has become a starting point for many long-term careers at NAPA. After finishing his studies, NAPA’s CEO Mikko Kuosa started his journey at NAPA over 20 years ago.

Are you interested to learn how we create solutions for the smarter, greener, and safer maritime industry? Check our open positions above. If there’s no Trainee position currently open, you may connect with us and choose Trainee @NAPA to follow our opening Trainee positions.
