"It’s easy to do your work when you know you can always get help from your colleagues when needed"
I got a summer job at Valtra back when I was studying. After I graduated, I decided to apply for a job opening that had been announced, since I had such good experiences with the company during my summer jobs. I got the job, and now I have been working at Valtra for almost 20 years. I work as a supervisor at the Spare Parts Centre. My job is very varied and ranges from employee issues to equipment maintenance and quality aspects.
In fact, the best thing about my job is the diversity of the work. My work colleagues are real professionals, as are the other people here at Valtra. It’s easy to do your work when you know you can always get help from your colleagues when needed and everyone does their job well. I would say the best things about Valtra are the great employees and the fact that you get to work with the newest technologies.
I began working at Valtra as an after sales marketing and financial assistant, after which I joined Valtra’s sales team. I now work as a sales development expert, and my tasks include developing and implementing our sales development processes. Another important task is developing sales management tools and supporting sales in general. I am also involved in Valtra’s ongoing digitalisation development programme.
The best thing about Valtra is its international dimension and its diverse tasks. I am involved in the fast-moving world of sales and sales development. I especially like supporting sales and helping to develop these support activities; I enjoy seeing the bigger picture and discovering new ways of doing things.
The people at Valtra are friendly and outgoing, and they really made me feel at home. With every department that I have worked with, there has been a genuine “let’s do it” attitude. At Valtra I’ve never felt alone or isolated.
I used to work in Helsinki at an R&D consultancy, where I helped design forest machinery among other things. I found working with big machinery to be interesting, especially as there seemed to be so much potential for further development. So I then applied for a job at Valtra’s Engineering Centre and got the job.
I initially worked with industrial design tasks: conceptualisations, 3D modelling and model building. These days I am mostly involved in cab ergonomics: designing physical and digital user interfaces, and conceptualising and developing the user experience.
My job allows me to be involved in the product development process from start to finish and to see how new tractors are created from concept to end product. My work requires me to learn new things all the time, which keeps my mind active. The best thing about my job, however, is all the people who help create these internationally award-winning products.
