We love people who love people and technology.
Raion is a small specialized consultancy within the Microsoft eco system. We do software development, architecture, IT strategy and technical change management. Just like all other consultancies we believe to be different than the rest - but we do more than believe, we act on it too!
Raion is powered by local Gothenburg techstartups such as Rekry, Winningtemp, Fintegrity and Bonsai. We call this Shareconomy. To us this means that anything that makes business prosper in our local tech arena also benefits us. We help entrepreneurs and start-ups rise and shine through sharing competence, network and business.
Our team of superstars are some of the brightest and kindest minds within the Microsoft world. We also host one or two wildcards that know nothing about C# or Azure, just for the fun of new perspectives and the intellectual challenge. To add to the party we have the most astonishing Junior advisory board that brings us perspectives and inspiration from minds much younger than our own.
Our "why" is Shareconomy in all aspects. From chosing to sponsor start-ups to the kind of people we hire and what kind of christmas present you get as an employee. 1+1 should always equal 3. As part of this we also host the Azure study group in Gothenburg.
If the above makes sense at all to you, please give us a call. Meeting will, at the very least, give us inspirational networking and who knows - if the stars are aligned we just might start working together.
The Raion Why, How and What
The eight of us working at Raion today are looking to find more people we do not wish to live without! Growth will be a result of that, but growth is not a target in itself. Value is a target - profit is not. Work life balance is a target. Sharing business, knowledge and heart is a target. Having a positive impact on the world is a target too.
Sure - we are an IT consultancy and we need not tell you there are SO many of us out there. There are many others with great knowledge of Azure and .Net, there are more than a few that can deliver the most exquisite code or the most brilliant architecture in a heartbeat. The only thing not replaceable is who we are!
Raion is no more, and just as great, as our team of skilled and loving people. We believe that through every new member of our team - we somewhat change shape into something brighter and stronger. We are entrepreneurs at heart. People who want to have a positive impact on our own everyday life as well as the world around us.
Our value proposition for you? To become partner and co-owner of Raion. Sharing what we know and who we know. We have a great network of business friends that enables us to find intriguing assignments ranging from CTO at the smallest start-up to architect in a global setting. Raion is a place for creators and co-pilots who have an idea of what kind of company they want to build together with us. Enabling us to run our own business - together!
The need for software skill keeps avalanching and for us as inhabitants of that market it means that we are becoming more sought after by the hour. Our unicornification is no longer a theory - it is a fact. As unicorns we no longer need to adapt and accept - we have the opportunity to find work life nirvana. Better yet, we have the opportunity to create it!

Next year, it's 10 years since Microsoft first announced Azure. By then my take on Azure was that it was a nice Microsoftish way to host websites. There was just one problem, why? Why would You use Microsoft for hosting? Why not use Your local hosting provider?
When Azure was first announced, there were two major services available, Web Roles and Worker Roles. The preferred way of connecting them was with a queue. Back then this was kind of hard to understand. Why queues? Why asynchronous slow communication? We had WCF! Why not just connecting several Web Roles with WCF for scale? Patterns like "Competing Consumers" existed, but few knew about them. Even fewer had any experience of them. At first Azure wasn't very well received by the market. But there was a rumor that any year we would be able to remote into the virtual machines.
So if Azure was to become the de facto standard for hosting, would it be good business to focus on Azure? To me it sounded silly. Why focus on something that would be as common as breathing? Everyone could publish a site in Azure and host a website. That couldn't make much of a business case? Was I wrong or was I wrong?! I was super wrong!
What I couldn't foresee was that Microsoft would build such an amazing setup of services! Today we have a product range covering SQL Server, Document databases, Search, Machine Learning, Web Sites, CI Flows, Integration Services, and much much more and it's extremely rapidly growing.
What this means for You and me is that we, within just a few clicks can set up an unlimited scale hi performing architecture. We can migrate our existing solutions to Azure and modernize them part by part. This is nirvana for architects, CTOs and developers. Pay only for what You use and build for unlimited success.
This why we on Raion are so dedicated to Azure. We are confident that we can make a difference to our customers by helping them build architectures and solutions more future proof and cost effective than before.
