Rumma & Ko is sad to announce that we stopped our employment contract with Tanel. He was employed at Rumma & Ko from January to April 2017, only four months. We had been hoping for a much longer period.
Tanel had been working mostly on the Vilma project. We plan to continue on this great project together, but we also realized that this is rather social research than making money.
Thanks to Tanel we realized that Lino does not yet look interesting for stakeholders who think big. Hamza, Tonis and I believe in Lino because we are developers and see its inner beauty. Many Lino users believe in Lino because they are using it every day and they feel that database design is more important than web design for their work. But deciders look at software from the outside and judge it by the user interface and the documentation.
As a summary we are grateful for these four months of enriching relationship with Tanel who will continue to support the Lino project as a volunteer. He is a guy who thinks big. I can recommend him as a product manager of a medium-sized company or organization. And maybe he will even return back to our team as Lino gets bigger.
Actually Lino does need somebody like Tanel who helps us with managing and promoting the Lino project. But for the moment that guy obviously needs to live in Belgium and speak both German and French. We wrote a job offer which describes our expectations.
