What is your current position and responsibilities?
I am a Quality Specialist (ISO9001 and ISO17025) at Verkotan, but I also have responsibilities with sales and marketing, sourcing and logistics.
What is the main challenge within the industry and how do you respond to that in your everyday work?
Technology development is in the fast track. Testing standard methods are changing and new requirements will change Verkotan test services according to the new test scopes and standards. Thus, anticipation for the future is very important.

Verkotan is a small but flexible company. I like my diverse job description. During hot summer days company is providing ice cream 🍦
What is the most challenging aspect of your work?
One of the challenges is that we have many open tasks at the same time, and they require prioritization. Nevertheless, we have good processes and systems which help with this. Another challenge is that sometimes customers do not know or understand what is required for CE, FCC or ISED certification, which requires a lot of explaining, but we are here to help!

Joining the team was easy, I have been working here earlier during 2016-2017 so I knew most of the people already.
How is the working atmosphere?
Personnel atmosphere is great and supportive. Even when there are busy times, a sense of humour is not forgotten.
Are you satisfied with your current position? Do you feel the job is challenging enough for example in terms of knowledge and experience?
Yes, my job contains enough challenges. Continuous improvement and adapting to the new requirements and standards are keeping me on my toes and the ability to learn new is highly motivating
