Our Management Team
Jarkko Jokirinta, co-founder & CEO
Jarkko is a serial and growth entrepreneur who has a proven track record and roughly 15 years of experience in international sales and business development. A true cosmopolite, he has personally conducted business successfully in Europe, Middle-East, Southeast Asia, United States, and People’s Republic of China, to name a few. Together with his founding colleague, their sharp eye for spotting customer needs led to the awareness that many executive management leaders were missing reliable and high-quality data from social media and online activities to make strategic decisions about their brand … and this is how InsightsAtlas was born.
Having started working full-time alongside with his studying years, and prior to founding the company in 2010, Jarkko worked for fast-growing international healthcare software companies (e.g. Mawell) where he led three different lines of business: business intelligence, sales and management consulting. He was personally in charge of creating global web services and ramping up businesses from zero to millions in less than 12 months.
Jarkko holds a Master of Science (Technology) in Industrial Engineering and Management from the University of Oulu, Finland. He also speaks Mandarin Chinese, Swedish and German.

Prior to founding the company in 2010, Janne led the IT development at Paikallis-Sähkö Oy, one of the largest electric contractors in Northern Finland. He has also lived and worked in China for several years, where he personally consulted the C-level management of PRC’s (China’s) second-largest manufacturer of electrical equipment (CNC Group) and helped implement the ERP system.
