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 arising. 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 a necessity for long-term survival.
WHAT IS HISLAND?
Hisland is a compound of Hisingen and island (pronounced “Highland”). It reflects a strong industrial heritage, the pro-activity of the area and the multi-cultural environment that Hisingen is. History is now in the writing and so is Hisland.
Hisland Solutions offers services that strengthen businesses with the latest technology, new innovations and creative solutions. We are a strong international team of experts that enable the technology behind smart products and services within software and electronics.

We couldn’t be prouder of everyone who made this happen. We continue to grow our family, always with our roots firmly planted in Hisingen.
With Hisland we create a platform where dreams and ideas can flourish and grow. All with the aim of contributing to a better world.

WHO ARE YOU?
You enjoy solving real world problems and create new real-world opportunities using the Tools of Your Trade.

You are a good communicator and know how to create and develop good relationships with your team, customer and partners.
You are an excellent team player and always look after the team's best from a long-term perspective. On the other hand, you enjoy taking your own responsibility and working individually in the direction that you think is best to achieving our goals. You have a passionate approach to contributing to the world around you and extremely committed to finding methods to influence. This makes you curious and understand the importance of starting from our customers' needs (an outside-in approach) that creates the conditions for a successful solution orientation. We believe that you have a well-developed ability to inspire others by seeing and confirming – “a good listener”. You are curious and have a large portion of a desire to experiment where your mind set has the ability to see defeat as an opportunity for learning. Growing up, you were probably the one in the class who went your own way, simply because you understood the context earlier than anyone else and were driven by your beliefs that what you were doing was right. In your humility to this fact, you probably got several followers when it turned out time and time again that you were able to choose the right path.
