Hectronic further improves the resources in testing by recruiting Håkan Sjöö in the role as Test Manager. He contributes with many years of experience from working as a Senior Consultant and System Engineer within embedded computing.
His expertise is software development and he prefers to keep a holistic view of the product or system for better understanding and results in his work.
– I have quite a good knowledge in hardware to be a software engineer, he says. As a person I’m curious and interested also in details outside my own field of knowledge.
The broad technical knowledge fits like a glove in his new role at Hectronic. Test Managers like Håkan take part in most project phases like for instance technical development, industrialization and production. Testing is performed on prototypes, pre-series and in production at the manufacturers of for instance COTS COM modules or custom systems tailor-made for specific customer requirements.
– My responsibilities include the overall management of Hectronic’s tests, streamlining the procedures and further improving the efficiency of our testing.
Håkan brings experiences from his previous career including technical development, porting of applications and testing of software in embedded computers based on ARM or X86 processors. Embedded Linux is his specialty and he received a Master’s Degree in Mathematics at Uppsala University.
According to Håkan work is the greatest joy when it’s about troubleshooting and involves his whole range of competences to sort out the details and find the solution.
– I enjoy viewing things as one whole entity combined with the attitude of digging into all the details at the same time.
Håkan Sjöö was employed by Hectronic March 18, 2013.
