    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    My name is Matti. I am 35 years old. I am Finnish and I work as a statistician. I live in Helsinki with my wife and dog. We live in a house that is 40 years old and we are carrying out a renovation at the moment. I am good with computers and I can do DIY jobs. I would like to get to know new people and have new experiences as well as improve my English skills since I regurlarly need to give presentations in English at work. Therefore I would like to travel to the UK or Ireland. I am happy to help with e.g. IT problems, data processing, gardening, basic DIY/building, maintenance and taking care of animals.

  • What skills do you have?

    I can do basic DIY jobs such as painting, flooring and assembling furniture and fixing things. I can also do gardening like mowing the lawn and weeding. I have good IT skills and I can help with home IT-problems, data collecting, data processing and data visualization. I have worked with tabular and spatial data. I can also do basic programming (Python, SQL, SAS) in the field of data processing. We have a dog (Airedale terrier) and my mother has always had dogs and cats so I am familiar with taking care of pets. I do not have too much experience with children. I can do basic cooking and baking and I hold a valid driver's licence for car and motorbike. I'd of course be happy to learn new skills.
