About Lamia

Founded in 2012 Lamia has succeeded in building a fast growth path without external investments, staying profitable throughout our existence. We build digital services for some of the most interesting companies in Finland such as St1, Särkänniemi and Verifone. We are a long-term partner for our customers providing high quality digital solutions and ecommerce services all the way from strategy to design and from software development to data services and growth marketing.

Our technologies
We develop high performance Vue applications, headless ecommerce solutions and cloud native microservices. In our projects we widely utilize the capabilities from Google Cloud, Magento 2 and Contentful. When it comes to architectures we prefer modularity which guarantees the scalability of the solutions. For us it is important to build modern digital services with modern tools - we do not necessarily base our work on any specific technology or hang on to legacy systems - instead we prefer the MACH approach: microservices, APIs, cloud native and headless. This allows us to develop future-proof solutions for our customers while making it developer-friendly and efficient to build, expand and develop further.
