ABOUT THE JOB
THE END-AND THE BEGINNING
Hisingen - an island with a thrilling story.
In the 1960s Gothenburg was thriving due to a strong shipping industry that generated jobs in the area creating an economic upswing. As one of the strongest competitors in Europe we got blinded of our success and realized to late that the global development had caught up and surpassed us. There were severe cut-backs and a whole business was on the verge of disaster. The depression was a fact.
Now, more than three decades later, the situation is totally different. The empty, almost ghost-like dockyards have new tenants, cutting-edge hi-tech companies are established, and we are seeing a new prosperous era rising. We learned our lesson, we know that if we don’t develop and are determined to change, we too will be history. We’ve realized the hard way that creating and fulfilling new ideas are not only short-term based, but they are also necessary for long-term survival.
WHAT IS HISLAND?
What history has taught us is that humans must continuously evolve to meet our ever-changing world. We are a Consultant company and our employees have very successfully strengthened our customers and enabled the technology behind Smart products and services in Software and Electronics. Our employees have during many years created value for our customers as project members and been involved in driving Sweden's industrial development forward in cutting-edge technologies. We are extremely proud of this!
In our journey, we have also managed to be selected as one of Sweden's absolute fastest growing companies. At the same time, we have also been anchored in humility towards the environmental changes and our place in it to achieve our purpose - to contribute to a better world. Based on our previous company development, we want to create the best conditions for a stronger future and therefore continue to build a sustainable foundation for our success – The eternally evolving Leadership. We develop our customers with people who are constantly developing to empower new perspectives. With that as a starting point, we constantly drive development forward to capture a better tomorrow as a repeating mantra.
