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.

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.
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.
Live to work or work to live?
You might spend a good part of your weekdays at work, but we believe there is more to life. Let your interests guide you. Choosing to work at Senseair, you will find that you have various options on where to live.
No matter where you end up, you are welcomed to a company with a global connection, that started out with optic infrared technology and grew to be world-leading in NDIR technology. We have also branched out into alcohol sensing and are now a part of a global group. Come be a part of the innovative business operations at Senseair!
Senseair career portraits
If you apply for a job at the Senseair HQ, you can choose to live in Delsbo, the small community where the Senseair headquarters is located. Here, you will live close to the magnificent nature near lake Dellen. You can also live in Hudiksvall, a small but growing city by the sea, with good train connections to Stockholm. You can live in the ski resort Järvsö, where you can ski in the winter and go downhill mountain biking in the summer. You can also live in Ljusdal, Söderhamn, Hassela, and many other places. In the area, you will find several golf courses, fishing waters, and good restaurants, as well as clubs and associations for all possible interests. In every little village around here, you will also find trails for snowmobiles and cross-country skiing. 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!
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. Go to a concert or the theatre or spend a few hours at the shopping centre or the open-air museum. Västerås is a growing and evolving city.
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. Housing prices can be high, but there are gems to be found. Being in the Swedish capital certainly has its perks – you have a vast selection of what to do in your spare time. Go to the opera/theatre/amusement park, one of the many museums, or a concert. Join one of the sports clubs or gyms, meet up with friends for a fika or a drink, have a picnic in the park, or go kayaking in the archipelago. In Sweden’s biggest city, the possibilities are nearly endless!
Chengdu serves as the capital city of the Chinese province of Sichuan. Over 10 million people live here. It’s also the home of the giant panda; about 80 per cent of the world’s giant pandas can be found in the Sichuan province. The city has a rich history and cultural life with e.g. Qintai Road and Shufeng opera house (where traditional Zaju is performed). It has also been recognized as a city of gastronomy. You can visit a temple, go to a teahouse or play a game of Mahjong. Visit different fairs and festivals throughout the year. 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. Housing is reasonable and it's easy to traverse the city via public transportation. Chengdu is one of the most important centres of economy, commerce, culture, transportation, and communication in Western China.
Chicago is the third most populated city in the US, with over 2 million inhabitants. It’s located right on Lake Michigan.
