Elektrobit (EB) Automotive Opens Office in Oulu, Finland

The automotive industry is rapidly changing with the continued trend to driver assistance applications and to the integration of external devices in the car. These development trends are delivering a wealth of opportunities for car manufacturers and automotive suppliers alike. With the office opening in Oulu, Finland, EB is creating up to 40 jobs for software development engineers in the region with a focus on research and development for embedded software and software integration. The new office will enable EB to respond to current business needs by leveraging a highly skilled workforce in the area. Here's an excerpt from an interview with Alex Kocher, President, Elektrobit (EB) Automotive GmbH. Why did EB decide to establish an automotive software site in Finland? Alex Kocher: Finland is a strong economy in Northern Europe and home to Elektrobit’s headquarters. Therefore, expanding our automotive software research and development business to Finland was a natural step for us. We see great potential from a highly skilled workforce especially in the electronics and software industry in the country. Our office opening in Finland is in line with our global expansion plans in Europe, the US and Asia. Why exactly in Oulu? Alex Kocher: Elektrobit already has a strong heritage in Oulu, with almost 30 years of experience on-site for EB’s Wireless business. Therefore, it made sense to benefit from this experience in the region. In addition, the Oulu region is a key market for attracting new, highly skilled employees that are experts in the STEM field and especially for software development and integration. What will be the core business areas for Oulu site? Alex Kocher: Our office in Oulu will focus on strengthening our global Research and Development team for embedded car software and systems integration. spacer
