Make a career out of air
What you measure, improves. Sustainability is not just a word at Senseair, we work with measuring it and we believe in a sustainable workplace.
Choose a job that makes a difference
Did you know that more than 4.6 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 reality is much crueler than that. Most people have no choice but to breath the air they are surrounded by. Air that burns in their throats and causes lung and cardiovascular diseases. This is not only happening in Asia. 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 fellows. You will also find our CO2 sensors in buildings, vehicles, environmental stations, lifeboats, factories, mines etc.
The sensors do not provide fresh air, but we believe in the following statement from the book Freak-onomics: By measuring you make a complex world much less so.
Each year alcohol kills 2,5 million people worldwide, not counting all the injuries and traumas that follow suit. In 2016, 80 people in Sweden were killed in traffic due to alcohol. The problem is yet hidden to most of us. Our alcohol sensors are developed with a group of the leading car manufacturers, the US government etc. You will find them with train operators, fire brigades, 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. Our gas sensors are, except for the areas already mentioned, also used in for example 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 to put it straight - 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.
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. The rest we don’t care about: your gender identity, age, where you come from or if you have any disabilities. We are doubling our workforce. We cannot afford discrimination.
Beeing a human among the robots
Much of our labor is carried out by robots but at the end of the day it’s the humans that we depend on. We wan’t our people to last. Many of our employees has been working here for decades, still counting. We believe in preventive health care.
Use our gym, go have a swim and a sauna for free at any of the public pools in the municipality by telling your employment number or have a massage during working hours. Help yourself with coffee, tea, fruits and crispbreads all day long. Have a nap in our resting area or use your flexitime to pick up your kids earlier from school and go have an ice cream in the sun.
We think that if you are happy and healty this will reflect on your work
Within five years our ambition is to be twice as many and we can not afford to lose a single person because of dissatisfaction or work related health issues.
Humans are no robots.

Live to work or work to live in High-tech Hälsingland?
We have offices in China, US, Germany, Kista and Västerås but our headquarter is situated in Hälsingland. We know Delsbo isn’t excactly centre of the universe and we know it might sound crazy that a company on the countryside of Sweden would be a global technical leader - but believe us, the people who are working here came here for a reason. Actually, many different reasons.
Some came just because they wanted to work with our guru, the “Steve Jobs” of sensor technology, Hans Martin. Others came because they followed the green movement. Some wanted to live close to nature, away from the hassle of urbanization. Some came because they wanted to give their kids a different upbringing in a smaller scale community where everybody is more visible. Winter enthusiasts love the selection of snow mobile tracks and the selection of close ski resors while summer enthusiast love the lakes, the sea and the long beaches.
You might spend a good time of your weekdays at work but we believe there is more to life. Let your interests guide you. Choosing to work in Delsbo you will find that you have various of options of where to live.

Where to live?
You can live in Hudiksvall, a small but growing city by the sea, or you can live in the alpine ski resort Järvsö where you can ski in the winter and go downhill mountain biking in the summer. They’re both just 30 minutes away from the Sensor Headquarter. In the area you will also find several golf courses, fishing water, good restaurants as well as clubs and associations in all possible interests. Stockholm is 2,5 hours away by direct train from Hudiksvall from where you can easily access both the north and the south with public transportation. You can also live in Ljusdal, Söderhamn, Hassela and many other places. In many of these cities you can find several other just as global and technologically advanced companies. Of course, you can also choose to live in Delsbo where Senseair is located. Here you’ll live with the choice of a grand nature close the huge lake Dellen. Go either way or combine them all. Unfortunately the air here is so clean here that you might forget the purpose of your job.
Only 30 minutes away from Delsbo you’ll find Järvsöbacken alpine skiing resort – one of Swedens largest with more than 212.000 guests. Here you’ll find 20 slopes, 8 lifs and 4 treadmills. Snow park, ski cross, kids park and afterski. Or if you prefer, yoga.
In the opposite direction, 45 minues away, you’ll find Hassela ski resort. 20 slopes, 8 lifts and a swimming pool area.
In every little village around here you’ll also find snowmobile trails and cross-country skiing. If you want the best tracks however, visit Harsa. Because of the hight the snow usually comes already in October and stays until April. 80 km of well-prepared ski trails in wonderful nature that fit everyone's condition and skills. From 1.5 km to 20 km of classic tracks.
Summer by the water
Delsbo is located just by the beautiful lake Dellen. Surrounded by the blue mountains, the view has won many photo competitions, but it’s more than that – here you can swim by any of the kilometers of sandy beaches, you can go cray fishing on a lukewarm august nigh or you can enjoy the rich social life that comes with having a boat here. Light a fire, pick blueberries or just enjoy your cup of coffee in the quiet mornings when the sun rises over the lake.
30 minues away, in Hudiksvall, you have the sea. Visit any of the old fish camps where you can still today buy fresh fish, go swimming by Maln beach, just a few kilometers away from Hudiksvall center, or go out to Hornslandet to enjoy Hölick seaside resort.
Later, when you’ve decided you want to live here, you can buy a lakeside house for the same price as 20 kvm in central Stockholm.
