Want to build seamless IT solutions?
Kanthal is working on a digital platform to ensure the best possible user experience for our colleagues and customers alike. We are looking for an Enterprise Architect, a role which demands both ingenuity and diplomacy. While merit is paramount, Kanthal especially encourages women to apply to this role.
“As the amount of data increases as well as the need for compliance and safe handling of intellectual property, this role is essential as we build the platform,” says Ola Björk, Global IT Manager.
Ola likens the job as Enterprise Engineer to being an architect. “If you’re going to build a house you can buy as many bricks you want,” he says, “but without an architect that house will just fall down.”
To drive this exciting and complex project within a global company, the Enterprise Engineer must be curious, resourceful, solutions-focused and have diplomatic skills to make sure everyone understands the benefits and to get everyone on board.
He or she must also understand customer needs as well as what our colleagues require to do their jobs to best capacity and with minimum frustration. “Your job is to make access and user experience seamless,” Ola says.
Applicants should have a degree in Applied IT or the equivalent industry experience from at least five years in the field. There’s no need to have worked specifically in heavy industry. “There’s value to coming in with ‘fresh eyes’, as we say in Swedish,” Ola says.
“We’ll of course make the selection based on merit,” he says. “But as we have previously had very few applications from women, we especially encourage them to apply.”
