Summer and subsequent part-time employment: Support engineer

May 11 - Jun 8 2017

We are looking for someone who has studied in a Master of Science program for a few years and wants to step into the professional world at one of Sweden’s foremost high-tech companies. The right candidate will start in a summer position and continue in the fall and thereafter at around 10 hours per week, working at Sectra’s headquarters in Linköping.

Sectra develops and sells IT systems for health care, focusing on image management for departments such as radiology, mammography, pathology and orthopedics. More than 1700 hospitals use our systems daily. This makes Sectra one of the world’s leading digital x-ray processing companies. Sectra was founded in 1978 and has its roots in Linköping University. Today, Sectra has offices in 14 countries and also operates through partners worldwide.

The Education and Training department within Sectra sells a sophisticated educational platform using visualization tables and Sectra’s award-winning imaging software to modernize and improve the way medical education is taught. We are a rapidly growing department with customers in 46 countries around the world.

The position

You will be the Support Engineer for Sectra Education and Training. Your job will be to solve any technical problems with our customers’ software and hardware. As you will regularly speak and write with foreign partners by phone and email, the position also has a strong communication element. You must act quickly and solve problems, taking steps to ensure that they do not arise again.

What we offer

  • A Swedish corporate and management culture where your voice will be heard and where your efforts make a difference and are noticed.
  • A rewarding and challenging workplace where you can meet smart and talented people just like you.

Who you are

We expect you to be well-educated and smart, but also have a sense of humor—life is too short not to have fun! At Sectra we hire you for who you are, not what you have done before. The most important thing is for you to fit in as a person, share our values, learn quickly, and contribute.

We also value who you are outside of work. Whether you are a singer, musician, pilot, mountaineer or diligent athlete, you can be sure to find others like you at Sectra.
