Meet our people

Andreas - Production Manager

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering


My department work with composite parts, ailerons, for the aviation industry including Boeing and Airbus.


What do you think it takes to be successful at Saab?

Among our employees we have incredible amounts of knowledge in everything we do. It is important to take advantage of this and it is everyone’s responsibility to do so.

For me it is crucial to keep a balance between my work and personal life, because when I feel good I perform well.


Discribe the culture?

From day one as a new employee I was made to feel involved and encouraged to reflect and give my thoughts about decisions.

Karin - Software Developer

 M.Sc. in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering 


I work with flight simulators. Besides the aircraft itself, there are various objects moving on the screen such as other aircraft, vehicles and boats. I work on creating them and making sure they behave the way they are supposed to.


What do you enjoy most about working at Saab?

I really enjoy seeing how the system is used. It’s a great reminder that what we do at our offices is actually being used somewhere else. For example, I have done troubleshooting at one of our military units. But the main thing that stands out is that I get to fly the flight simulators a lot, and that never gets old!

Hans - Head of Country Unit Africa

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Officer/Colonel SwAF, Fighter Pilot

I feel strongly that the Security and Defence Industry function as a guarantee for the good in the world and for the basic human right to feel safe.


What advice would you give to someone applying for a job in your department?

Be prepared! You’re most likely going to have to hit the floor running. It’s an extremely dynamic environment where very few days are alike. You’ll be dealing with the full spectrum of tasks that concern any world leading high tech Industry … you will not look at your watch to see if it’s time to go home … you will be swept up in the action and it’s just great!

This is an aircraft for the future."
