Demos Helsinki as a workplace

What do we do at Demos Helsinki?

Us at Demos Helsinki work for building a better society. We believe it is exactly as important to bring understanding based on research to public discussion and political decision making, as it is to help companies to renew.

This is why Demos Helsinki consists of two organizations. The think tank Demos Helsinki (Demos ry) works in research and development projects with the public sector, associations and other common-good organizations. In addition, we are involved in research and enhancement projects, funded by e.g. Tekes and the Academy of Finland. The think thank is an association-based, non-profit organization. Demos Effect is a company owned by Demos ry employees. It provides consulting services to companies and helps them turn consumer insights and foresights into future-proof business opportunities. Demos Effect was founded because we think that companies play an important role in building a better society.

Demos Helsinki as a workplace

At Demos, your colleagues are your friends – and, without any exaggeration, probably the most intelligent and inspiring ones you will ever find. It is a privilege to work with Demos in Helsinki. That is why we have the obligation and desire to make it our dream job and the best place to develop society.

Curiosity is what drives us. What is the next biggest question, is the what each one of us keeps asking. We learn from each other and use each other’s knowledge for projects work on. Not a day goes by without fascinating discussions. At the moment there are 39 of us and a large network of partners we work with. Meet your future colleagues here.
