Make a career out of air

Today, around 150 employees work nationally within the company, in Delsbo, Kista, and Västerås. Within the next five years, we aim to double our workforce and we are always interested in employing new competence.

Choose a job that makes a difference

Did you know that around 7 million people die due to bad air quality every year? 

Good air quality is something that many take for granted, but in many parts of the world, the reality is much crueller than that. People have no choice but to breathe the air they are surrounded by, even if it burns in their throats and causes lung and cardiovascular diseases. This is not only happening in Asia. For example, new reports show that 1,000 people die prematurely in Stockholm County every year due to air pollution. We make sensors that measure carbon dioxide and air quality for people all around the globe in order to make better decisions - for yourself, the environment, and your fellow humans. You will also find our CO2 sensors in buildings, vehicles, environmental stations, lifeboats, factories, mines, etc.

Sensors do not provide fresh air, but we believe in the following statement from the book Freakonomics by Levitt: "Knowing what to measure and how to measure it makes a complicated world much less so".


Alcohol kills 2.5 million people worldwide each year, not counting all the injuries and traumas that follow suit. 

In 2016, 80 people in Sweden were killed in traffic due to alcohol. Yet, the problem is hidden to most of us. Our alcohol sensors are developed with a group of leading car manufacturers and the US government. You will find them with train operators and fire brigades and in subway cars and workplaces. We are aiming for an “invisible” sensor in every car. It sniffs the air and can detect if a driver is sober and fit to drive, no manual action or mouthpiece needed.

No limits

With urbanisation and automation, the number of sensors required to improve and secure a safe environment is almost limitless. Apart from the areas already mentioned, our gas sensors are also used in e.g. lifeboats, medical applications and high-accuracy fire detection. We make sensors for life. A few minutes ago, you most probably did not know we existed, but we are the world leaders in our field and the innovators of infrared technology in gas measurement. There are 6 million sensors out in the world, made in Delsbo. Within the five years, we need to double our workforce.

Being a human among the robots

Much of our labour is carried out by robots, but at the end of the day, it’s the humans we depend on. Many of our employees have been working here for decades (and still counting). We believe in preventive healthcare. Use our gym, have a swim or a massage during working hours. Help yourself to coffee, tea, fruit, and crispbread all day long. Take a nap in our resting area or use your flexitime to pick up your kids earlier from school. We believe that if you are happy and healthy, it will reflect on your work. Within five years, our ambition is to double the workforce and we can not afford to lose a single person because of dissatisfaction or work-related health issues.

Humans are no robots.

Sustainable workplace

Sustainability is not just a word at Senseair, we work with measuring it and we believe in a sustainable workplace. You will find 14 nationalities in our office in Delsbo. When we hire, we only look at things you can alter, like education and motivation. We don't care about the rest (e.g. your gender identity, age, where you come from, or if you have a disability). We are doubling our workforce; we cannot afford discrimination. All we ask is that you do a good job.

Senseair career portraits

Delsbo

If you apply for a job at the Senseair HQ, you can choose to live in Delsbo, a small community where the Senseair headquarters is located. Here, you will live close to nature and near lake Dellen. You can also live in Hudiksvall, a small but growing city by the sea, with good train connections to Stockholm, or in the ski resort Järvsö, and many other places nearby. If you decide you want to live here, you can buy a lakeside house for the same price as a 20 sqm apartment in central Stockholm. The only downside is that the air here is so clean that you might forget the purpose of your job! 

 

Västerås

If you work in Västerås, you are close to nature. You have lake Mälaren right around the corner. Nearby, you'll also find Sweden’s biggest ancient burial mound, several castles, a silver mine, many good hiking trails, and indoor swimming pools. All the while, Stockholm is only just over an hour away. There are good fishing opportunities in Svartån right in central Västerås. Go golfing, stand up paddling, skiing, or downhill mountain biking. If you have an interest in (American) veteran cars, you’ll be happy to know that Västerås Summer Meet, with up to 20,000 cars involved, is an annual occurrence. Västerås is a growing and evolving city. 

Kista

Kista is Stockholm’s newest district and is only 20 minutes from the city centre. Kista is nicknamed Sweden’s Silicon Valley, as Ericsson’s headquarters and the Swedish offices of e.g. IBM, Samsung, and Nokia can be found here. You can visit Kista Shopping centre, with close to 200 stores, a cineplex, a bowling alley, and a go-kart track. When you work in Kista, you can have your pick of where to live; there’s an array of districts to choose from. Being in the Swedish capital certainly has its perks – you have a vast selection of what to do in your spare time. 

Chengdu

Chengdu serves as the capital city of the Chinese province of Sichuan. Over 10 million people live here. The city has a rich history and cultural life with e.g. Qintai Road and Shufeng opera house. It has also been recognized as a city of gastronomy. Chengdu has long been established as a national base for the electronics and IT industries and is the home of over 30 Fortune 500 companies and over 12,000 domestic companies. Chengdu is one of the most important centres of economy, commerce, culture, transportation, and communication in Western China.
