Johan

Johan, Sales Manager Europe

Being on the commercial side of our business, I’m always trying to spot and understand the future needs of our clients, beyond what‘s being implemented today. The sales cycle of our products is naturally very long, so our relationships with clients are best described as strong partnerships.

The best thing about my job, is the great diversity that each day brings. It’s never boring. And the mutual trust between myself, my clients and colleagues is a big motivator.

Melica

Milica, Junior Software Engineer

When I was 5 years old I broke a remote control just to understand how it worked. That pretty much explains why I am here today! Not that I like to break things, but rather because I am naturally curious about how things work.

I simulate, analyze and do issue fixing. Testing and perfecting algorithms is key to an efficient system. A lot of my time is also spent in research, such as reviewing science articles to ensure our work is on the right path.

I get a lot of freedom to grow and the culture here is so friendly. It’s great to be working with people that are so open and where the level of talent is so high.

Henrik

Henrik, Customer Support & Training

My girlfriend often finds me in front of the computer late at night “youtube–ing” the latest breakthroughs in science. So I am definitely a tech-geek!

Lego Technic was the BIG thing for me during my childhood. And our work here at Kollmorgen is what I would call Lego for grown-ups. It’s all about puzzling together solutions and overcoming problems. I differ quite a lot from my University course mates in that I am the only one still working for the same employer since graduating. I just find the people and the technology here so great to work with. And when I’m out in the world at a customers’ site, I am confident that I always have the full support from colleagues at the home office. That is really important for me, because if you hesitate or feel insecure about things like that, you simply can’t work at the pace needed to achieve the results we do.

Lars

Lars, Senior Software Engineer

When you find yourself explaining complex software details to your non-tech friends, and they all look like giant question marks, then you know you are a full-blood techie. Fortunately, around here, I am not alone!

 I develop and upgrade systems for optimum performance through continuous iterations. The best thing about this place is that things are developing all the time. Literally, whatever code we write, it directly shows up in the real world, immediately impacting our test vehicles’ behavior. That’s pretty cool! And I can’t imagine another workplace with this many nice and competent colleagues! I’ve been here a long time now, and I’m planning on staying.

Samuel

Samuel, Product Marketing Manager

What I enjoy most about my work is the constant need to be coherent with the marketplace. The business is booming and my role of finding opportunities and then addressing them with insights is really interesting and rewarding. My main work is to analyze and connect the dots. To segment and position a strong portfolio of products to the future market.

One thing that motivates me in this global environment is all the great people you meet. Not only colleagues, but stakeholders from all over the world.

Studied: Industrial Management and Engineering, The Faculty of Engineering at Lund University

Johanna

Johanna, Junior Product Manager

As a teenager my French teacher asked me to write a letter to “my-future-self”. Years later, after a couple of years doing non-tech jobs, I found this letter. I didn’t remember that I had written, “Engineer” as my future occupation but, in hindsight, the fact that I’ve memorized the number of Pi to 400 decimals probably says a lot!

My main responsibility is to understand our client’s needs and prioritize the implementation of different stages and projects. It’s both technical and creative at the same time. You have to think beyond the current technology and try to foresee the future. To be on this journey with likeminded and supportive people is really great!

Klas

Klas, Application Engineer / Software Engineer

Since I started at Kollmorgen I’ve been traveling around the world installing our systems at clients and end users’ locations. It’s been a diverse and interesting job where one’s problem solving skills are constantly challenged. Currently I’m aspiring to broaden my repertoire within the field of software engineering, with the ambition to dig deeper into the core of our AGV platform and help make it even better.

As well as learning new skills at work I enjoy challenging myself physically. On my trips I’ve often joined local associations for some added exercise and cultural exchange; practicing wrestling in Atlanta, Thai boxing in Lausanne or Brazilian jiu-jitsu in Tokyo are some highlights. Back at the office me and some colleagues often go for swims or runs together, and in summer time it’s perfect with a beautiful lake close by for joint swimrun events in the morning or during lunch breaks.

Fredrik

Fredrik, Chief Engineer – Tools

When I got my first computer as a child, I was hooked. I started with playing games and began exploring the world of programming and software development as I got older. I find myself very privileged to be able to work and get paid for doing one of my favorite hobbies. Besides being a developer, my role includes responsibility for maintaining the technical roadmap and vision of our tools suite as well as monitoring the software community so that we can keep our software up to date.

The fact that Kollmorgen really encourages entrepreneurial thinking is a huge motivator. It demands a lot of responsibility from everyone, but that is the reward: everyone in the team really influences the product at every stage until delivery. This stimulates thinking and boosts people’s self-esteem.

Ann-Sofie

Ann-Sofie, Accounting Manager

I really enjoy working in Hi-Tech and automation. Although accounting isn’t so close to the technology, our brilliant and dedicated engineers are always eager to invite us into their world of science. It is really interesting to see the continuous progress and the great achievements we’re responsible for. It’s certainly a fascinating industry to work in.

Since we are a mid-sized company with the power of a larger international business group behind us, I have to be very adaptable and work multirole. We manage financial flows throughout the whole world so there’s always something new happening. It’s a constantly changing and interesting environment to work in.
