ABOUT THIS ROLE Hultafors Group is in a very exciting development phase, where a lot is happening within the company, partly the growth journey in IT, partly that the company is growing on a larger scale. We are expanding globally and have in the past five years acquired over ten companies, and the acquisition journey will continue. Since 2021, Hultafors Group has grown from a turnover of approximately 3,8 billion SEK, to today having a turnover of over 6,5 billion SEK. Some brands have been with us for a long time and use the same platforms, while others are newcomers with their own solutions and platforms. Now a decision has been made to increase the degree of digitalization in the company, as well as move to common platforms for the entire group, which will be based on cloud native applications and SOA architecture for all. To succeed in this, we need to strengthen our team with several roles and the role of Enterprise Architect is a key role which will be a part of the Group IT management team. This is truly an exciting opportunity to step into a crucial role and take the lead for a major investment where you will leave your own mark on Hultafors Group’s IT environment.

In order to succeed and thrive in the role, we see that you are driven, committed and dare to challenge existing ways of thinking by coming up with new ideas, where you get others to understand the purpose of change. You advocate and work to maintain continued development and improvement in a global and dynamic environment. You have a clear focus on, and an understanding of, the business and how everything is connected, and you always look for opportunities for improvement in the organization. In the role, you will have a large number of contact points within the entire organization, both globally and locally, and therefore you need to be able to communicate well in a diplomatic manner with colleagues in various positions within the business. As a person, we believe that you are structured and thorough and have a positive attitude and a “can-do attitude”.
