“Only you set the limits for what you can achieve!”

Designer – Daniel Jansson

How long have you been working at Somas?

I have been working at Somas since September 2012.

How did you come to work here?

It was a bit of a coincidence. I was travelling by coach to go skiing in the Alps, and happened to end up sitting next to Somas’ CEO Peter Hägg. We got to talking about everything from valves to downhill skiing on the way. Shortly after the trip I received a job offer, which I jumped
at straight away!

What is a “typical” working day like for you?

Much of my time at work involves acting as a “sounding board” for production and marketing. There is also a considerable amount of problem-solving, development and ongoing improvement of our products. The day-to-day work in Somas’ Technology Department is governed by the PULS project management method.

What’s the best thing about your job?

I enjoy the fact that I constantly get to alternate between practical and theoretical work. No two days are ever the same. At Somas, you are constantly given opportunities to develop in your professional role, which I also appreciate!

What’s the biggest challenge with your job?

This is related to the best thing about my job, to some extent. The varied work assignments, in other words. Somas’ products are used in so many different industries, and each of these has its own problems and solutions.

Is there anything in particular you have done or been involved in at Somas that stands out even more?

The FireSafe project and the work with our Exhaust gas valves.

What do you like doing in your spare time?

I own a small farm with some forest land that I like to work with. I enjoy hunting in the autumn, when the opportunity arises. In the winter, I enjoy skiing, both cross-country and downhill!

What advice would you give to someone who wants to work in your industry?

I consider the role of Designer to be future-proof. There is a shortage in the industry and there are all kinds of opportunities. Only you set the limits for what you can achieve!

Who am I:

Name: Daniel Jansson
Title: Designer/Student Coordinator
Who am I: I live in the countryside a little way outside of Säffle. I like travelling when the opportunity arises, as well as cross-country and downhill skiing.
