Q: How long have you been working with Koenigsegg?
A: Since 2007.

Q: Where are you from, and how did you end up where you are at in Koenigsegg?
A: I am born in Finland, and moved to Sweden when I was 3 years old and went to Highschool specializing in Vehicles. As soon as I graduated, I started working as a mechanic at a SAAB dealer in Helsingborg, Sweden. I advanced working on Chevrolet’s during my 9 years at that company. Then I went on to work at Harley Davidson as a technician for 3 years.
One day, my girlfriend saw an ad on Koenigsegg’s website, and she thought it would be perfect for me.
So what happened next was that I took my CV and met my boss, and now I’m here.

Q:What do you do at Koenigsegg?
A: I am a service technician, and I work with both service jobs and development. When we can’t do the job at the factory, I travel around the world doing service, updates and repairs. It’s a lot of travel. I spend more than 100 days per year abroad.

Q: What is the most challenging part of your work?
A: Almost everything can sometimes be challenging but the hardest part is when you travel to a foreign country all by yourself to do a job on a car and you have to solve the task no matter the circumstances. This really is challenging and on the same time very rewarding. It is really fun to do this kind of work.

Q: What do you like most about working at Koenigsegg?
A: Everything I would say, it is great to be a part of something as special as Koenigsegg and to work with these people.
