"Follow The Sun" Tech Student Program

Are you a student looking for a unique and enriching one-year break? Look no further! Our program offers an extraordinary opportunity to split your year between Sweden and Australia.

Our organization, founded over 40 years ago by a group of passionate researchers, has grown into an international leader with nearly 1200 employees across 15 countries. We specialize in developing cutting-edge products and services in medical IT and secure communication.

We maintain a strong link to research and innovation, collaborating closely with customers to deliver advanced medical technology that significantly improves patient care worldwide. In the realm of secure communications, we contribute to a safer society by enabling secure communications for governments and defense ministries.

Why Join Us?
Our team is driven by the belief that technology can improve lives. Whether it's detecting breast cancer early or providing digital tools for orthopedic wards, knowing that our work helps others brings immense satisfaction. Our Ethos is encapsulated in our keywords: The knowledge to live up to expectations and the passion to exceed them.

Program Details
This is the perfect opportunity for students who want to transition from theory to practice and move from a book-heavy routine to a hands-on, practical environment for a year. After completing the year, you can return to school with invaluable experiences, knowledge, and networks. You might even pick up some Australian accent in your English.

Location: The program is divided into two six-month phases: the first half in Sweden and the second half in sunny Australia.

What You'll Do:
As a participant in our student program, you'll work closely with our support teams in our Medical IT business area. Your tasks will range from receiving and registering customer cases to troubleshooting and solving technical problems alongside our experienced engineers.

What We Offer:

  • A rewarding and challenging workplace where you'll collaborate with passionate and driven individuals.
  • An international environment with the chance to work with colleagues from different countries and cultures.
  • The opportunity to engage with innovative products, highly regarded in numerous markets and developed in close collaboration with end-users.
  • A chance to deepen your technical knowledge and get acquainted with our products.
