Etteplan Life Diverse team as the key to innovative solutions Etteplan Life Team Manager Stella Latifi tells about her work in the Embedded systems team in Gothenburg, Sweden. Share this story: I work as a Team Manager for the newly established Embedded systems team in Gothenburg, Sweden and my job is to build and develop both plans and targets for this new team. In addition to Embedded systems engineering, I am working with people who have knowledge of the whole scale of digitalization from data science to cyber security. I have been fortunate enough to hire a team of highly experienced and diverse engineers within a field of Embedded systems. In fact, diversity is exactly what makes my team unique. My talented co-workers share the passion for technology, but are all different when it comes to age, nationalities, gender or level of seniority. As a leader of a team, I think collaborating is the key to happiness – we always listen to and respect each other’s perspectives and views in discussions. I know that both Etteplan and I value diversity. It brings us a unique and a different package of knowledge and experience which allows us to think outside the box and find innovative solutions to our customers. It is great to see our new ideas come to life in different projects and to realize how our digitalized solutions can help societies in making people’s lives easier and more sustainable. "As a leader of a team, I think collaborating is the key to happiness – we always listen to and respect each other’s perspectives and views in discussions." Etteplan’s brand promise “Engineering with a difference” is present in our everyday work because I see us holding expertise in multiple areas, and constantly aiming at the next level. I strongly believe in learning and sharing knowledge within the team because that makes it possible to offer cutting-edge solutions to the industry. With our different backgrounds and skill sets, there is always someone who can offer their support to others. Also, my previous knowledge and experience in this industry and as well as my great ambition, can contribute to the prosperity of both myself and my team at Etteplan. As a team leader, my focus is on the well-being of my team: when my team is happy our customers are happy. In general, taking the challenge and being involved in the team pays off. We are always working hard, keeping our eyes on the results and there by creating the best outcome for all.
