What is your role at Volvo IT? For how long have you had it? Have you held any other positions in Volvo IT before this one?
I’ve been working as Business Consultant in product development, since I joined Volvo IT in June 2007. My current focus is on Product Life Cycle Management, helping CIOs and decision makers to build their strategic plans, to invest in the right solutions at the right time point.
Why did you choose to work at Volvo IT?
Volvo IT serves one of the most demanding and complex businesses. Being here, I develop my skills together with my colleagues every day. At the same time I have great fun and many laughs at work.
During the recent years, Volvo IT has become more and more globalized. This fits me very well. I develop both professionally as well as personally by taking on global challenges and learning about different cultures around the world. Right now, I’m based in Tokyo – and this is a very nice and exciting place, I can guarantee you!
How would you describe the culture of Volvo IT?
Volvo IT has a culture of helping, rather than competing, implying that you support your colleagues, and walk the extra mile to reach a team result, rather than optimizing your own position. Furthermore, Volvo IT has a respect for the individual situation, providing a good working climate, no matter if you have graduated recently, building a family, or have a 20-years career behind you.
What do you do when you’re not working? Interests, hobbies?
To relax I like to play my piano and do some running in the park. Flying gliders, air planes without engines, is another hobby, but the family and kids, three and six years old, are of course my main focus when I’m not working.
What would you like to say to a person considering applying for a job within Volvo IT?
Think through what drives you! Problem solving in global teams? Developing leading technology? A sound work-life balance? Volvo IT offers all those things.
