Title: Technical Lead, based in Strängnäs

At Teleopti since: August 2007

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I moved from Stockholm to Strängnäs, and began commuting to work. But by chance I found an ad for a company looking for developers.
Without mentioning the possibility to work in Strängnäs, I noticed they had an office in town at least.
And with my previous experience of working with payroll, time reporting and ERP systems I felt that it was a good fit for my career.

What’s the best thing about working at Teleopti?

I like the long term thinking within the company. We rarely make a quick thing for short term benefits. As an employee I also like the freedom, both regarding working hours, and what I can do to make the company a bigger success.

What do you like about Teleopti’s Strängnäs office?

The proximity to my home, as I live in Strängnäs things get really easy when you have the kids in preschool just around the block.
But the nice thing with Teleopti is that we never have far to go to our HQ in Stockholm to feel the pulse and talk to colleagues in other departments.

When are you the happiest?

During winter, primarily when skiing somewhere in the sunny slopes.

What do you do when you are not at work?

I try to have quite a lot of days skiing. But most of the time is spent with family logistics and house work.

Name three things still left on your bucket list.

I don’t really have a bucket list. But I would like to own a cabin somewhere in the Swedish mountains and adding solar cells to our house. Travelling wise, it would be really fun to bike between some Champagne vineyards.
Something me and my wife have talked about doing when the kids are old enough to refuse to go on family vacations.

What gadget do you wish existed?

I’ve been looking forward to the release of Effie (https://helloeffie.com). But it seems to take time to get it to work… Ironing clothes is not my favourite task, and it would be really nice to automate that part.

Title: Senior Developer

At Teleopti since: March 2017

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I had worked in GuangZhou for seven years, and I felt bored and wanted to move to another city to try new things. One day I got a call from a recruiter who was helping Teleopti find a web developer. I was interested in TDD and Agile, and Teleopti have them both. In addition, Teleopti is an international company, and joining a global team was interesting to me. So I took the chance and got the job! Lucky me!

What’s the best thing about working at Teleopti?

  • I appreciate that I can take time to find better ways to do my work. Teleopti really cares about the code quality and there is respect for all ideas.
  • All teleoptimists are sweet. Every workday when I come to the office, their smiles are like sunshine so I can have a good mood even on rainy days. And if I need help, I just ask for it and I will get answers quickly, no matter in which country or office they are working.
  • I feel equal to everyone else and I can be myself.

What do you like about Teleopti’s Shenzhen office?

  • There is coffee and fresh fruit. To have a nice coffee is a sweet start of the workday, and the fruit give me lots of energy when I’m hungry.
  • Three great teams. We are not only working closely but we also have a lot of fun when we share interesting things and try new restaurants/karaoke places/bars together. We are not only colleagues, we are friends.

When are you the happiest?

  • Finding a good restaurant to try different types of food.
  • Travelling to beautiful places.
  • Solving a difficult tech problem and learning new things from it.

What do you do when you are not at work?

On workdays, if I don’t go out with friends, usually I just turn on my computer to watch videos including tech videos, movies, funny short videos from different websites.
On weekends/holidays, then I can do many things. Like watching movie at the cinema or going on a short travel or cook good food (I am not good at cooking, but my boyfriend is a fan of cooking).

Name three things still left on your bucket list.

  • Hiking in the desert for a week
  • Diving to see the underwater world
  • Learning to paint

What gadget do you wish existed?

A smart robot. I need it to help me do the things that I don’t like to do, so that I can spend my time on doing fun things. If it can talk, it also can be a good friend.

Title: Director of Technical Consulting

At Teleopti since: 2005 as an independent consultant, 2017 as an employee

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I started as a consultant and was asked to help as an Integration Developer where I focused on payroll and HR integrations. From day one I felt that I was a vital part of the team – even though I worked remotely for a number of years – and also that my input was important and that I could have an impact. I still have that same feeling even though we as a company have grown considerably since I first set my foot in the office.

Best thing about working at Teleopti.

I am very proud of our diversity and our collaboration. To have colleagues and teams in different time zones that collaborates daily is an awesome feeling. When I was an independent consultant, I worked for a number of different customers and I can honestly say that the way Teleopti involves employees on all levels and in all capacities is way different from anything else I have seen. When help is needed, it is never far away and everyone is always committed to help and find a solution to a challenge.

When are you the happiest?

On weekends when I am skiing in the Rocky Mountains with my family. On weekdays at work, when I manage to solve that Gordian knot and everything just works out!

What do you do when you are not at work?

Spending time with my family – wife and two kids. A perfect day includes mountain biking, hiking or skiing in the mountains. I love travelling and see Malaysia as my home away from home.


Name three things still left on your bucket list.

Get a PPL (Private Pilot License)
Cykelvasan
Touring the Caribbean

What gadget do you wish existed?

Jetpack! (Yes, I know it exists, but not available for everyone, and I WANT ONE)

Do you celebrate the inofficial National Day of Småland?

Of course – “Fössta tossdan i mass” (First Thursday in March) is almost a public holiday in my book!

Our new R&D office in Jönköping will open in:


Join the journey at our new R&D hub in Jönköping! At Teleopti you come face to face with world-class, agile development.

WHO WE ARE

Innovation is the most commonly mentioned word when customers are asked what they associate with Teleopti. We’re proud of this, but we wish to do more. Teleopti invests a lot in product development, and Research & Development is the biggest department within Teleopti with more than 60 passionate colleagues in four different locations in Sweden and China.

To keep up with customer demands and continue to create an exciting, intelligent product we are starting up a new R&D office in Jönköping, where we aim to have two development teams up and running by the end of the year. Whether you’re recently out of university or have already got cracking with your coding, you’re welcome to join our journey of innovation.

Our Jönköping establishment isn’t just a strategic one – it’s the hometown of our CEO Olle Düring, meaning the city holds a special place for Teleopti. We’re also bringing Martin Videfors, a Jönköping native himself, home from Teleopti’s main US office in Denver to head up the new hub.

HOW WE WORK

At Teleopti R&D in Jönköping, each team will take ownership of one of the areas within the product, to get to know the user needs and be able to deliver the best features for these users.

All teams enjoy a high degree of autonomy, and the team members decide how they want to work together. But, there are some things that all development teams at Teleopti have in common. We use agile processes to deliver customer value as quickly as possible, we use test-driven development in striving towards continuous delivery and we do a lot of pair and mob programming to ensure great quality and the best features, and of course because it’s more fun to work together!
