From graduate to leader in a few years

"When I started as a graduate I was immediately included in a real project, which, as a curiosity, is still the largest project I have participated in."

Linnea Lindberg / December 10, 2020

I work at TietoEVRY where I lead the AI & Automation unit in Sweden. Here, I and the team focus on helping our customers eliminate manual and repetitive tasks by automating them - so that their staff can instead focus on more fun and value-creating tasks! .

In the same way, I also lead the Enterprise Content Management unit in Sweden & Denmark, a unit I myself have belonged to since I started as a graduate in 2016.

Experience in different roles & teams 

During my career at TietoEVRY I have held various roles and responsibilitieseverything from consultancy and project management to sales and marketing. As many other starting in a big company, I did not know exactly what I wanted to work with. Therefore I think it was perfect for me to get to explore and grow through different roles, so that I could find my way and find out what suits me the best, utilizing the great opportunities for internal mobility in TietoEVRY rather than looking externally. 

After we became TietoEVRY I got the opportunity to lead the new unit AI & Automation in Sweden while keeping my initial role as a leader for the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) unit in Sweden and Denmark.   

With one foot in each unit, I really work with a wide range of different issues, towards different customers, with different offerings, technologies and teams. I enjoy driving the customers journey forward together with the teams and while having continuous dialogue with our customers.

I truly enjoy working hereWhat has been great in my job are my colleagues and the teams supporting my constant learning journey and professional development. In my mind we are on a constant learning journey, which I have experienced both in the situation as newly graduate and as a manager of an expert team.

What makes TietoEVRY a great place to start your career?  

In TietoEVRY we have the luxury of being able to utilize our global teams whilst working on local deliveries and customer cases. When I started as a graduate I was immediately included in a real project, which, as a curiosity, is still the largest project I have participated in. This was incredibly educational, and I got to work with colleagues from all over the world. Together we created a solution that supports the expansion of wind power at one of the world’s most sustainable companiesI enjoy, as well as many of the people in my team, working in an organization that change the society for the better.  

Like many others, I did not have a clear path in mind when starting at TietoEVRYIf you now find yourself in the situation that you want to advance in your career, but don’t know exactly where to begin?  These are the things that have been of imporatnce to me in my career:  

  • Try on any assignment or responsibility that is given to you – and take ownership of it. 
  • To understand the business a broad experience is great to have, so try out different roles if you get the chance. 
  • Continue to build your network over time, be active and see where it will lead you be open for it to lead you onto unfamiliar territories. 

TietoEVRY is a company that is in continuous change with plenty of career opportunities – making continuous learning a big part of our work. So if you, like me, have an urge to continuous develop and learn, while having a real impact on our customers and society – this is the right place for you.
