At Sandvik Coromant, we pride ourselves on pushing boundaries and testing limits by rethinking, redefining, and redesigning to figure out what’s possible to achieve. We offer a global, innovative and inclusive setting, with passionate minds and industry-leading solutions in metal cutting, and in this case, all related to Information Technology. We’re looking for a driven, enthusiastic, and resourceful IT Solutions Architect who’s ready to join our liberate, yet tightly aligned team – responsible for sketching out innovative solutions for our IT architecture. Is that you? Welcome to our tribe!

Your mission
In our production flow, we’re primarily using automatic processes and robots – all the way from managing raw materials to finalized products. Some production cells run entirely without any human interaction. It’s an environment that places great demands on “connectivity” and seamless flow through the production chain and high digitalization level information management between our software and machines, and that creates significant benefits in analytics, accuracy, efficiency and economy. Joining us as Solutions Architect, you ensure that designed solutions are successfully implemented as you support the project teams and confirm that systems are evolved and delivered as maintainable finalized solutions. You provide us with technical guidance in designing and implementing the various solutions supporting business needs and strategies at assigned units.

In addition, you liaise with product vendors, industry experts and other stakeholders with the aim to create solution designs based on quality for our business’. Further, you review the current technology architecture landscape and scout for new ways of working. By having a genuine interest in future innovations, you conduct research on new and emerging technologies for practical application to business problems and strategic initiatives in the context of assigned work efforts.

As for your location, we offer some flexibility, although you do need to spend time in Sandviken or Gimo on a weekly basis as you act in very close collaboration with our on-site production teams, internal stakeholders and take part in development projects. Some international travel is normally also included in the job.

Your profile

You have a relevant academic degree or corresponding work experience, and you thoroughly understand IT connected to the industry. You’re eager to dig deep into how modern technology, digital development and thoughtful interfaces can enhance our operations. Since we work locally in a global setting, you must also communicate fluently in Swedish and English, while other languages a big plus.

We’re looking for a detailed and visionary Solution Architect with social confidence and a collaborative mindset, and we see that your background is most likely formed within production. You genuinely enjoy some good problem-solving, testing scenarios and evaluating different angles, and you team up with colleagues and partners to improve our IT structures. At the same time, you’re independent and use your self-drive to finalize assignments. Through organized and proactive ways of working and focusing on quality and customer needs, you make sure that we consistently surpass ourselves and continue to be a frontrunner in automated manufacturing methods.

We believe that our diversities lead to a successful business environment, and we’re looking forward to meeting you. Meanwhile, if you want to know more about Sandvik Coromant, we recommend a visit on our website, LinkedIn or Facebook page.
