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.

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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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.

Josefine, Strategic Purchasing

I have a solid logistic background within large industrial based enterprises. The industrial trend is to relocate units globally to stay competitive. That brings uncertainty to the workforce. I joined Kollmorgen because their hi-tech products are the opposite; innovation based services. You can’t relocate that type of know-how easily. That’s where I want to invest myself.

Being at the core of our supply chain, I’m responsible for relations and negotiation with our suppliers. It’s about trust, being on-time and on-budget. I do have a slightly “obsessive” tendency towards process efficiency improvement.

The key difference between large enterprise and Kollmorgen is that here you aren’t caught in “political bureaucracy”. The atmosphere is more open which encourages you to contribute. And that make us move fast!

Studied: Business Administration - Logistics, Linnaeus University (Bachelor), University of Gothenburg (Master)


Niclas, Technical Coordinator

I’m “defined” by extreme action sports. Whether snowboarding off-piste or surfing the extreme waves of nature, I love the challenge of uncertainty.

Although some might see action sports as quite the opposite of engineering, my tech-nerd side lives in harmony with my other self. My home houses at least 6 computers and a lot of tech gear. - I’m a dare devil and tech-nerd at that same time.

My role at Kollmorgen is to make the impossible possible. I coordinate with our engineering partners daily to move projects forward. Projects are constantly evolving and we're always learning. I’m never bored, although I’m a very impatient type of guy. The best part is when I’m clueless right in the middle of a new complex problem. It’s in some way like riding that crazy wave of nature - The larger the challenge, the better.

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.
