Published: 21 February 2018

Josefin Åhl graduated from the Master Programme in Computer Science and Engineering in 2008.

What is the best thing about your job?

– The best thing about my job is that it is very diverse. I work with everything from technical issues to marketing and sales. I am also part of a great team where we all work hard while having great fun together.

What in your career are you particularly proud of?

– Over the patent which I and the founder of Oricane AB, Mikael Sundström, developed when I was doing my exam thesis on Oricane. It was a very exciting journey.

When you look back on your education, what was the most important thing you learned?

– That hard work pays off, but also that alone is not always strong. There is a saying I like: If you want to walk fast go alone, if you want to walk far to go with others.

How did you find your time at Luleå University og Technology?

– One of the best times in my life! I learned a lot and although it periodically was tough and demanding, I had incredibly fun doing it.

Do you have any tips for anyone who considers studying Computer Science?

– Go wholeheartedly for your studies, work hard and don't give up. It will pay off in the end!
