Tech Architect

  • Stockholm

About the position

Have you hacked and created your own smart home? Or are you monitoring the water level of your plants in your aquaponic installation, that you designed and prototyped yourself? Are you a Tech Wizard who wants to define and design consumer electronics products where the borders between physical and digital are vague? Then this might be just the job for you.

At Above you will work in a mixed team of engineers and designers to define and create tomorrow's products. You’ll mostly be hanging out at our Stockholm site - half workshop, half creative studio. But we know that a few focus days a week from home can be great to deliver on specific tasks or to manage your work/life balance.

What you’ll be doing

You have a background within Mechanical-, Electrical- or Software Engineering, but you feel almost as comfortable in the other engineering disciplines. Rather than only being a specialist in one field, you also have an overview of the complete system and understand the importance of each part. As Tech Architect at Above you are like a "connected swiss-army knife". In some projects, you will focus on the early stages of the project and be the link between all tech disciplines defining the tech platform for an ANC headset. In other projects, you might work more within your "origin craft" as a Lead mechanical/electrical/software engineer when developing, for example, a wireless speaker. In between that, you will partake in meeting future clients, helping them understand what we at Above can support with and explain complex tech in an understandable way.

Skills & Requirements

The checklist(s)
Who are you:

  • Minimum a B.Sc. in engineering
  • 5+ years of experience working with consumer electronics or home appliances
  • Experience in working/leading full program projects, from early definition and concept work all the way to production setup. A key for this role is understanding the whole development cycle
  • Have a true passion for tech, you can't wait for the next Apple event to see what's new

Things we value but aren't deal-breakers:

  • Experience working with connected products
  • You have experience from being a Project Manager

Our hiring process:

  • You read this ad and apply
  • You meet with Anders & Kristoffer (our ME and HW/SW managers) and learn some more about the position
  • You meet with a group of Above people to get a feeling of the culture and different disciplines within Above
  • You high-five our CEO
  • You tell everybody how amazing your life has become
  • You bring all your friends over to join as well
