Sandvik Coromant is a market-leading manufacturer of tools and tooling systems for advanced industrial metal cutting. Products are manufactured in cemented carbide and other hard materials such as diamond, cubic boron nitride and special ceramics.

At the Sandvik Coromant CIO Office, one of our main responsibilities is to enable strategy execution and facilitate business and IT change. Sandvik Coromant is in the process of adjusting for the future; initiating and running multiple transformational initiatives, which translates into a dramatic increase of demand for orchestrating business and IT change with a multi-year perspective.

We’re now looking for an Enterprise Architect to join us on this journey, with the mission of driving the digital development and strengthening our ability to execute on our strategy. This is a fun time to come aboard, as you get the freedom to develop your role in these exciting times of business transformation!

So, what’s this job all about?
As Enterprise Architect, you’re the bridge between business and IT - translating business strategies into development plans, focusing on delivering business value and driving business outcomes. You ensure that our technology platforms are aligned with the strategic agenda of Sandvik Coromant, and with a distinct focus towards company growth, business flexibility and digitalization at scale. You stand with one leg in the Enterprise Architecture team and the other in our agile product teams, building the bridge, managing the enterprise architecture and orchestrating the interaction between business and IT. You handle strategic questions and make sure our platforms are in great shape as you optimize our cross functional processes.

This position gives you the flexibility to choose your own working location within Sweden, although some physical presence at our site in Sandviken or Stockholm is required post Covid-19 – mainly to strengthen relations and keep a good team spirit.

We think you’ll be motivated to join us in this position if you…

  • are skilled in stakeholder management and navigate with ease in a multi-cultural environment
  • thrive when making sure business capabilities, information and IT applications are aligned and integrated to optimize IT solutions that ensure business value
  • like to have strategic business dialogs to understand business strategy, pain points, objectives and needs.
  • easily handle architectural deviations and exceptions and communicate and anchor architecture with relevant stakeholders.

What more do we expect of you?

Hands on experience within enterprise architecture is needed to be successful in this position, ideally captured during work in larger global organizations. A relevant education is of course handy, and you feel comfortable around commonly used architectural frameworks and methodologies. You take an enterprise-wide approach during strategy and roadmaps development and, with an positive and proactive style, you build trust and long term relationships. Working in a global setting, you’re also a skilled communicator in English – verbally, in writing and presentation wise.

Your character is what really matters! You don’t have to be an architecture nerd, but you need a true talent for converting business needs into tech solutions. You’re proactive and open to new ideas and concepts, and don’t hesitate to try them out. On the other side, you dare to make decisions even if not certain. Also, you enjoy acting in an ever-changing setting where pace and commitment varies, and you’re good at getting everyone on the right track to reach the targets.

A glimpse of our culture

At Sandvik Coromant, we believe in finding that perfect mix between work, family life and interests, and we happily support our employees in balancing this. For us, it’s also clear that diversity of experience, perspective and background forms an amazing foundation for achieving great results.
