A few words from your future manager
Hi! My name is Björn and I have the pleasure of being CTO of Excillum after an 11 yearlong exciting journey with the company. Excillum started with a truly unique technology and lots of enthusiasm which over the years we have complemented with all the rest that is needed to be a successful company. The journey continues and now I look forward to a quantum step for our product management capability by the hiring of our first colleague entirely devoted to this extremely important discipline. What I love about Excillum is maybe best summarized by the impression we get from customers visiting, when they are not only amazed by our products but even more the focus and friendliness of the people they meet. I hope you want to be a part of that!Arbetsuppgifter
