What are you currently working on?

At the moment, I am working as a 2D/3D harness designer for VCA (Low voltage) cables for a Swedish truck OEM. I am part of a VCT (Value creation team) responsible for VCA cables in the chassis within BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) trucks. In this team, we make decisions about our products and what improvements we will need to implement.

What do you remember from your first weeks at inContext?

I recall the exceptionally warm and welcoming atmosphere that prevailed. One amazing aspect was being part of the academy alongside colleagues who have since then become my closest friends. We had a clear, detailed and comprehensive introduction to inContext’s customers, innovative projects and assignments of my colleagues. This amazing onboarding process contributed to a positive transition into the professional world.

How would you describe inContext as an employer/working place?

inContext prioritizes the well being and career development of its employees.
We have a rich diversity, with people from over 30 different nationalities, each bringing a unique culture which presents a continuous exploration of their background and contributing to personal growth.

inContext places a significant emphasis on the social aspect, which includes activities such as afterworks, christmas dinner, summer party, ski trip and kick-offs. These experiences made my integration to Sweden smooth and strengthened the bond to colleagues.

inContext is committed to continuous learning of the employees by regularly providing training across diverse fields in order to ensure the continual expansion of our knowledge. Alongside the senior engineers that are always there for support when I need it.
I have regular check-in meetings with my manager, where we evaluate my assignment progression, discuss improvements, career plans and my well being both on and off work.

InContext is a small multicultural company where we all know each other and socialize as colleagues and friends. We have many events and fun activities throughout the year that lay the foundation for camaraderie and wonderful memories. The fact that inContext is so multicultural is a big bonus for me. With colleagues from around the world, it easily opens up for interesting and fun discussions, and I always learn something new when I have lunch at the office.

I am grateful that I had the right colleagues to guide me through the initial phase both inside and outside work
