Information om uppdraget

Academic Work seeks on behalf of Husqvarna Group several ambitious individuals for a young talent program. The program will give you as a newly graduate the opportunity to kick-start your career as a Software developer or a Cloud architect and give you knowledge in the area of Internet of Things.

During the program, you will be employed by Academic Work and work as a consultant at Husqvarna Group. Husqvarna's intention is that after the program you will be employed directly by them. This is decided after a mutual evaluation by both you and Husqvarna. The talent program will last during 12 months.


The young talent program is looking for individuals who want to take part in Husqvarna's journey towards connected products (Internet of Things). The Digital Solutions department is characterized by innovative thinking and agility. The departments mission is to support Husqvarna Group in broadening it's offerings with competitive digital value-adding services to end-users. They have gone from about 30 to 60 employees over a period of 1 and 1/2 years, which says a lot about the expansive phase they are in. You will have the opportunity to combine real work in a development team with internal and external education.

Here you will have the opportunity to work with the latest in technology, be part of team with skilled co-workers and work with something that makes a difference!

Husqvarna already has some successful digital services, but the area is still in great exploration. Below are two examples from the service portfolio:

Automower Connect enables you to remotely steer and control your robotic lawnmower via a mobile app regardless of where you are in the world.

Fleet Services is a cloud-based system that connects the machine fleet and landscaping teams to an on-line portal, enabling safer and more productive landscaping operations.
