Jolla was born in 2011 out of passion of its founders towards open innovation in the mobile space. At the core of Jolla is Sailfish, the most modern, mobile-optimized operating system. Running on Sailfish we are creating Jolla smartphones, which are designed with the most recent consumer needs in mind, such as intuitive use, multitasking and effortless interaction.

We believe that the best way of creating something meaningful is DIT, doing it together. Since the beginning, the community has been at the heart of our idea generation, technology development and distribution. Continuous, open dialogue with the community is the way forward!

Currently we are a team of 90+ people and have our offices in Helsinki and Tampere, Finland and Hong Kong, SAR of China.
