Anders Sjöroos studied International Service Engineering at the ITH, Hydraulic institution. Even before starting to work for Bosch Rexroth, he knew that it was a technical company with a large portfolio and production of the world famous Hägglund’s motors and drives.
Before working at Bosch, Anders had already liaised with Automated Aftermarket for almost ten years. “I´ve been collaborating with Bosch Rexroth aftermarket for quite some time. So I´ve been aiming to join the company, and in March 2015, I started in Bosch Rexroth Automated Aftermarket.” His first impressions of working for Bosch in Sweden were very positive: “Everyone is professional and works in smart technical solutions. “
One reason for Anders switch to Bosch’s department was his strive to evolve. At Bosch, he was given the opportunity to gain more experience, be challenged and meet more people. The job as Technical Support Engineer interested him particularly because of the service orientation. “I have a lot of experience when it comes to service, retro fit, liaising with customers, OEM and colleagues inside Bosch”. The variety of tasks and the frequent business trips are other factors that Anders enjoys a lot. “I get bored if nothing happens or if I have to do one thing a thousand times”. And last but not least, the great atmosphere and happy colleagues all over the world, make it easy to go to work for him.
In Automated Aftermarket there are 20 employees in his office – but Anders works with the entire world. His tasks, therefore, vary a lot. Everyday there is something new. “One day I’m on the other side of the world, supporting some commissioning or training, the next day I’m at the office, supporting our country units”. He also supports another Bosch Division - CU with technical questions, training, providing documents and tools, “so they will be a strong service minded division”. The diversity of the job is the best thing about it.
Anders does not see challenges as such but opportunities he can grow from. “I am eager to go outside my comfort zone to face the challenges”. Those challenges are as diverse as his tasks. A big challenge in the beginning of his career was getting the programmes up and running. Nowadays, the most difficult task for him is navigating in Bosch processes and procedures. “Luckily I have really good support from my colleagues so this is not really a problem but a challenge”.
