HiQ is growing in the automotive industry
HiQ is growing its collaboration with the innovative automotive industry and supplying more teams to build tomorrow’s safe, autonomous and innovative vehicles.
“This is important for us. The skills and competence we possess in terms of intelligent systems for vehicles make us a strategic partner for some of the automotive industry’s most important players,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.
HiQ currently has around 300 specialists dedicated to working on product development assignments in the automotive industry. Over the past 20 years our successful track record of collaborations with a number of global vehicle manufacturers has propelled us into a leading position in the market. In the first quarter of this year alone, we have already won several new contracts.
“Sweden is at the forefront of developments that use cutting-edge technology to deliver systems and solutions for safer, autonomous vehicles and intelligent solutions for resource-efficient transport. It gives us a real buzz to know we are making such a significant contribution to Sweden’s competitiveness in the international automotive market,” says Helena Forsmark, Business Area Manager, Product Innovation, at HiQ in Stockholm.
“Demand for HiQ’s competence in the automotive industry is continuing to rise, which means that HiQ needs even more co-workers with the right skills,” says Simona Bamerlind, Business Area Manager, Automotive, at HiQ in Gothenburg:
“Our teams are in great demand, so we need to boost our capacity by recruiting talented new co-workers – everything from programmers and system architects to scrum masters, testers, test leaders and technical project leaders. Right now, we’re expanding rapidly in this area. In principle, we need to recruit as many new talents as we can get hold of.”
HiQ has a long tradition of driving technical development in the automotive industry. Over the past 20 years HiQ has worked together with industry leaders such as Autoliv, BorgWarner, Haldex, Mercedes, Nira Dynamics, Saab Automobile, Scania, Volvo Cars, Volvo Group and Zenuity.
“From the very earliest beginnings of HiQ, we were convinced that, by gathering together a team of talented people, we would be able to perform magic with the opportunities created by advances in technology. The fact that we are growing in these areas clearly proves that the same is true today. This is the most important area of competence we have at HiQ,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.
