The Microteam Vehicle Automation Team has a place for a soon-to-graduate student or a recent graduate. You will work on a wide range of design projects that allow you to do both traditional vehicle design and PLC programming. The role can be customized according to your own interests and competence. You’ll start by working alongside a more experienced mentor to see the entire life cycle of the projects. Typical projects range from large vehicles to smaller ones, from buses to golf cars. In addition to electrical design and programming, your job description includes some post-marketing tasks where you will solve product-related challenges over the phone. Support requests may come from, for example, repair shops. The main customer of Microteam is the Volvo Group, founded in 1927, operating around the world. As your experience grows, you will also have the opportunity to see the world as you work closely with Microteam stakeholders.

We hope you have an educational background (University of Applied Sciences or University degree) in e.g. electrical or automation fields and knowledge of vehicle technology. You do not need previous work experience in the job, but we wish you to have a strong interest towards the car industry. You can be finishing up your studies or a slightly more experienced worker, in which case we will offer professionally developing work tasks to suit your expertise. You have strong interpersonal skills and you take initiative of your work. You are not afraid of challenges, and you dive into new situations with ease. In this task you will communicate regularly with global stakeholders, so we expect you to have the courage to speak in English. Fluency in Finnish is not a necessity, but it is still desirable since the working language in your team is Finnish.

We require you to have:

  • A relevant degree in e.g. automation or electrical automotive engineering
  • Knowledge of traditional design programs (e.g. AutoCAD, CADS, Vertex, E3)
  • Interest in vehicle technology
  • Excellent written and verbal skills in English

 We consider as an asset:

  • Knowledge in Matlab and/or Simlink
  • Previous experience with similar tasks
  • Swedish language skills

We offer you the opportunity to develop your skills in projects that allow you to work with electrical and automation design for both internal combustion engine vehicles as well as hybrid and fully electric vehicles. With Microteam, you will be at the forefront to see the breakthrough and development of electric cars in the near future. In this job you will have the opportunity to complete your studies and, for example, complete your final thesis for Mircroteam. 

We can offer you:

  • Interesting and diverse work task that develop your professional skills as an automotive designer
  • A possibility to do your thesis for Microteam
  • Extensive culture and sports benefits
  • Nice office space close to Tampere center and activities
  • A great support from your team members
