You will work true cross functional between teams and geography, where you need to be one of the people identifying the path and show where the end goal is with focus on mechatronics making use of different, sometimes smart, materials.

You have a holistic view, mapping the path between vision, business and customer. You are a fast learner – and teacher/ mentor – and see an opportunity in tough challenges. You are loyal to the vision and your team, and you want to disrupt the old and venture into the new. You take extreme ownership because you are passionate.
To be successful in this role, we believe you have:

  • Relevant technical education and / or background

  • Communicative and collaborative
  • Have strong English skills (Swedish is a bonus)
  • You enjoy mentoring fresh talent
