Revolutionizing finance is beyond coding – Heidi’s journey with Evitec Covered Bonds
– We have an exceptional atmosphere in our working project; we help each other and share a good sense of humor, says Heidi Vulli, IT Consultant, Customer Experience- and Team Manager at Evitec.
In the vibrant world of Evitec, where technological innovation meets financial finesse, Heidi’s journey is a testament to the dynamic nature of both the company and her role. Six years ago, she stepped into Evitec as a student and, over time, seamlessly merged her academic pursuits with her professional journey. The initial task led her to a time as an IT consultant at a leading Finnish bank, focusing on collateral systems for over two years.
With the challenges of consultancy, Heidi wished for a deeper sense of team spirit. Responding to this need, she embraced the role of a project manager for one of Evitec Covered Bonds projects. This change not only re-light her enthusiasm but also confirmed her commitment to customer-centric solutions.
Heidi’s current role is a multifaceted one – an IT consultant, team manager, and customer experience manager rolled into one. Her journey at Evitec has been diverse – from coding to leading a Proof of Concept for sustainable and green bonds in the Swedish market, a topic of global relevance.

The work-life balance
Heidi cherishes the complexity of her role, where each day unfolds with new challenges and opportunities for growth. Despite the diversity in projects and tasks, a common thread of business knowledge connects the team together. Far from the stereotype of developers working in isolation, Evitec’s collaborative environment is a source of pride.
– I love working with people – my colleagues, my employees, as well as my customers, Heidi says with a smile. The exceptional relationship within her project team, marked by mutual support and humor, has even drawn envy from other teams.
The work-life balance at Evitec is more than just a concept, it’s a reality lived out through different activities like pool and foosball located in the work facilities. Between the intense pace of work, these moments of short breaks serve as a reminder that success is not just about achieving goals but enjoying the journey. Heidi and her colleagues at Evitec are not just building software, they are building relationships and a workplace culture that thrives on collaboration, innovation, and a shared sense of fun.
