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 metal cutting solutions.

We’re looking for a driven and tech-savvy 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!

The scope

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 – creating significant benefits in analytics, accuracy, efficiency and economy. It’s an environment that puts great demand on connectivity and seamless flow of information through the production chain, as well as high digitalization levels within information management between our software and machines.

Your mission
Joining us as Solutions Architect, you provide us with technical guidance in designing and implementing solutions supporting our business needs and strategies at assigned units – shifting between a helicopter view and hands-on technical focus. You liaise with product vendors, industry experts and other stakeholders with the aim to create solution design based on increased quality and productivity. By working with the project teams, you ensure that designed solutions are successfully implemented, evolved and delivered as maintainable finalized solutions.

Furthermore, you review our current technology architecture landscape and scout for new ways of working. With a genuine interest in future innovations, you conduct research on new and emerging technologies for practical applications to the business problems and strategic initiatives within your field.

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 and internal stakeholders. Some international travel is normally included in the job.

Your profile

You have an academic degree within IT or corresponding work experience, and an understanding of IT connected to the manufacturing industry – probably with a background within production. 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 holistic and visionary solution architect with social confidence and a collaborative mindset. 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 a focus 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.
