A perfect match for polar opposites – the Schiemann siblings

Ambjörn and Anna Schiemann are two siblings that work at Etteplan, Ambjörn as a Software Engineer in Gothenburg and Anna as an HR Specialist in Västerås. It started in March 2021 when Anna started working at Etteplan as an external recruiter, but at the end of her contract her colleagues at Etteplan decided to offer her a full-time role within Etteplan’s HR department. Today Anna works with recruitment, employer branding and other HR projects. During 2021 Ambjörn was finishing his studies and started to look for work in the Gothenburg area. By then, Anna knew what kind of company Etteplan was and thought that it would be a perfect match! She encouraged her brother to apply and the rest is history!  

What Ambjörn finds inspiring about Etteplan, and programming, is that he wants to see what else is possible, what else he can achieve, and in how many ways a problem can be solved. Anna says that what inspires her is the company, the culture, and her coworkers. “I’ve always wanted to work for a company that really values people, society, and the planet. I feel that I 100% can vouch for Etteplan and I am proud to work here with so many smart and amazing colleagues. Etteplan really makes the world a better place, so it is not for nothing that our motto is ‘Engineering with a difference’,” she says.   

In the future Ambjörn wants to expand his skills in software development further and to continue his growth by trying different projects and industries. After that, he would like to see where the road leads him and take it from there. Anna is really interested in working with employee satisfaction, international teamwork, competence development, and diversity & inclusion, which she wants to focus on more in the future. “I’ve already started, and I love working with my national and international colleagues in different teams and projects!” she says.   

“Something that we really appreciate about Etteplan is that there are a lot of people like us, not siblings per se, but people like Ambjörn and people like me, and that’s what makes us special as a company. We have very diverse talents with different backgrounds and that is what makes Etteplan so good!” Anna says.
