Erik Gyllenstierna

System Developer

Why did you want to join Lumera?

I wanted to work at a software development company that focuses on developing a great core product for businesses, not private persons. That way the business would not be so exposed to the economic situation. Previously I worked at a dot-com company that downsized a lot. Lumera has grown from 40 employees, when I started 2006, to over 300 employees today and is now a different company, for the better. But the original company culture is still here.

How would you describe Lumera as a workplace in just a few words?

Motivating, challenging, long-term solutions, flat organization, competent colleagues, teamwork.

What’s the best thing about working at Lumera?

To constant learn new things, both technical and within the domain. To work with a product that contributes to something good. Helpful unpretentious colleagues that I always can talk with. Freedom, with responsibility, to work at home or at the office and flexible hours. Great opportunities to influence the work process. A healthy work-life balance. I always like to go to work, really!
