Meet Andreas Ekman, Software Engineer. Ever since childhood, he had an interest in understanding how things work. Read more about Andreas and his journey within WirelessCar.What do you think about WirelessCar’s journey, why did you want to join it?
I wanted to be a part of a company that is leading its domain and has the ambition to keep evolving. I also want to be a part of change and evolution and I think connecting cars is a great step in how we can travel smarter. I believe that there are plenty of areas to explore and that we can make many contributions.What do you think makes WirelessCar unique?
WirelessCar has become quite a big company since I started. But despite a rapid growth we have been able to keep that small company feeling.What are the advantages of working here?
You get to work with the latest technology and not just read about it!
What’s the best with working in a customer program?
As a service provider, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing our products being used, and what better way can it be done than joining the program that aims to have the most sold electrical vehicles in the world?
Would you recommend WirelessCar to someone else?
Absolutely, if you want to work with the latest technology and want a lot of options to develop both soft and hard skills, this is a great company with a lot of opportunities. If you want new challenges, there are usually openings in-house.
What led you to WirelessCar?
I wanted to join a company that's doing well and thriving but to be honest there was a lot of gut feeling involved.
What have you learned along the way?
I’m grateful to have fun at work with great colleagues, try out new technologies, be able to develop and manage my days as I like. It’s a responsibility but it’s so rewarding when you get to see users interacting with what we create and deliver every day.
What drives you?
When I grew up I loved reading books about "How stuff works" and I spent hours playing video games and picking apart anything I could. I want to understand how things work and when I get to understand something I usually see different ways how it can be improved or optimized. This process gives me energy and puts more fuel into learning new things.
Do you believe in the future of the company? And in that case why?
If you ask me there's only been one real disruption in the car market for a long time and that is connected vehicles. I strongly believe that this journey is only in its infancy and the opportunities are endless.
