The Nordic home of tech talent
In Innofactor we have a Nordic professional community, which is made up from variety of backgrounds, expertise and experience. We develop ourselves by learning from others and by sharing the knowledge and ideas within our professional network. We want you to build your career within Innofactor and we support that by encouraging internal movement and collaboration across Nordics. We are proud of what we do for our customers and want to showcase that to others.
Without our people we wouldn't be here today. We have grown via acquisitions and through uniting professionals from Nordic countries under the same umbrella. Our employees are eager to learn, which is visible in the number of Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) and number of professional certificates our employees hold. With us you join the community of world class experts.
Our teams want to have fun and create friendships that last for life. We support free-time activities and networking in the form of events and hobby clubs. We embrace the Nordic network through focused virtual teams and common leaning activities via Innofactor Academy.
During my free time I'm a passionate golf player. When golfing, as well as working at Innofactor, I like to challenge myself to exceed my goals and reach even better results. During the past five years I have always got new and exciting responsibilities. I feel that we have a big diversity of projects to choose from, varying from IoT to machine learning.
P.s. We have a frisbeegolf field at our Espoo Campus, where I'm currently holding the record – You are welcome to challenge me there!
In Innofactor, I'm privileged to work with an amazing and extremely skilled team and in close contact with the customers. As a consultant you need to develop your own skills all the time and even in this short time that I have spent with Innofactor, I have learned a great deal. Project work suits me very well, as there is lot of variety and as the projects progress, you can see the results of your work and you get a feeling of constantly moving forward.
As a mother of a small child, I only have limited time for hobbies, but in my free time, I mostly enjoy travelling. With my team, we spend time together also outside of work in different activities, e.g. once we tried curling. I have also participated in Innofactor Fun Club activities (Fun Club = Innofactor hobby club).
The best parts of my current role are the energetic colleagues and customers I get to work with. Interacting with different people gives me energy and encourages to innovate new ways of using modern collaboration tools. In our context it's not so relevant where you are physically located or where you live, we have very flexible working culture and most things you are do outside of the office. At the same time with us you don't need feel like you work alone, we share learnings with each other's, we collaborate and network across the company and with peers in other companies – we say: "sharing is caring".
As an Account Executive (AE) my day consist of mainly activities related to our clients. Any additional time I spend on personal development. I work together with most of the people in my organisation, but especially our consultants where we discuss technology linked to our customer cases. How can we solve our customer's need in the best possible way? We constantly challenge ourselves to create new business opportunities for our clients. We have a fairly flat organisational structure and I like the fact that I can ask our CEO Stig if he can help open a door for me, and 30 minutes later the customer calls and asks for a meeting.
At Innofactor I get to use my whole spectrum of skills and experiences. My project leadership skills come in handy during the delivery phase when I together with the Service Manager and Consultant make sure that we deliver what the client is expecting with the highest possible quality. The reason why I chose to work with technology is because it exists in everything we do. IT is no longer just an office down the hall, IT is the source and brains of almost every business. From CRM / ERP to quality systems or design software. One can't do business development in 2018 without acknowledging the technological aspect.
Since I started in December 2017 I have learned a lot. I learn new things on a daily basis, and I keep being reminded that in this world you will never be fully graduate. I knew the level of expertise was high, but , but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it exceeded my expectations. The learning curve has been steep, but fun. What I particularly love about the job is that it challenges me from every angle. Those who work here have done a great job building the culture. The working environment is great and the people who work here are both fantastic and talented. It's also great socially, both at the office and nationally.
At Innofactor you have every opportunity to succeed. It is 100% up to you. At the moment, building up the West of Norway is my main focus. In the future, maybe I'll move into a Business Development role, who knows. What is the most important to me is to wake up every morning and feel like I am doing something meaningful with my time. Outside of work, besides from spending time with my family, I love fishing. A quite river, a dry fly rod and a couple of days alone makes me happy.
