The application specialist role is broad and varying
Initially you will learn how our systems function and as you progress you can decide your area of specialism. Do you want to manage projects, conduct feasibility studies, implement our solutions for customers, work with problem-solving, develop within testing or perhaps organize training/workshops? If you are a product development wizard and have an aptitude for coming up with ideas, then you will have the scope to really develop such talents here.
As an application specialist, you will primarily work in the front line for the process which is responsible for delivering our solution to the customer and supporting our solutions at existing customers.
We work in independent teams with varied skills and the organization is highly entrepreneurial and flat - we create solutions that make a real difference for our customers and have fun along the way. Relaxed seriousness is a guiding principle which we cherish and abide by in all our relations.
You are expected to try, test and learn. You are encouraged to seize opportunities and continuously develop with Centiro’s robust confidence in your ability. You set your own boundaries for how far you want to go. You are spurred by continuous improvement of your skills because here we care less about titles and more about what we actually want to achieve and learn more about.
Who are you?
Are you interested in IT and have knowledge of this area? Great!
Are you someone who enjoys talking about logistics/the supply chain and its significance in the modern business rather than the weather? Even better!
Do you think that implementation and integration of systems are fun and are you thrilled about getting a high five from our satisfied customers in the end? When can you start?
Snippets from an application specialist’s workday:
08:06 - 09:00 Start the day by getting coffee and greeting colleagues and then read e-mails received during the night (Centiro works with global customers who have users across the globe).
09:00 - 10:00 Daily meeting with the team and work on setup of a new customer. Also manage to test new development of a new component (as an application specialist at Centiro, you work closely with the developers).
10:00 - 10:15 Breakfast sandwich on the office terrace.
10:15 - 12:00 Continued setup of the new customer. On my way to get more coffee I run into the CEO Niklas Hedin on the stairs and have an intense discussion on an interesting customer experience I had recently while shopping online.
12:00 - 12:45 Lunch at the company’s lunch restaurant.
12:45 - 13:00 Make arrangements for my visa for China (in the application specialist role you have the opportunity to travel quite a lot), as the company’s COO Thomas walks past and challenges me to a table tennis match.
13:00 - 15:00 Meeting on an innovation project I am participating in (at Centiro you can come up with a good idea and be a part of the entire process, from idea to start of operation). Also manage to test the new setup with the new customer.
15:00 - 15:20 Beat the company’s COO Thomas in table tennis and enjoy a victory coffee with a bunch of Dumle fudge sweets.
15:20 - 17:03 Work on small assignments and reply to e-mails.
