We are rapidly expanding our Software/Hardware team in Stockholm and are now looking for a star to lead the team!

The team is focused on bringing smart and beautiful products to our world. Products that push the boundaries for what new and established technologies can achieve. As a Team Lead at Above you will be responsible for running this team of 3-5 people. This includes management of team members and their creativity. While focusing on delivering outstanding software and electronics, you will work in a truly cross-functional team with industrial designers, visual designers, mechanical engineers. You thrive in a collaborative environment, where you work closely with our directors on planning, scoping projects, aligning expectations and delivering great projects to clients.

About you

While you are driven by technology, you see the overall picture: You are comfortable with explaining technical options and trade-offs to clients and white-boarding architecture options. You understand the organisational aspects of how a team operates and thrives. And the processes involved in developing products. Organising work and keeping high quality of deliverables is second nature to you.

As a team lead you will be responsible for the deliverables from the team. This ranges from initial sales meetings with potential clients, handling customer relationships during execution, until final kick-ass delivery of a project to a stoked client. You thrive in a dynamic organisation where no two days alike and new challenges are coming in every day. The company processes can be highly influenced by your ideas and together we define these.

Skills we’re looking for are

  • A solid background in electronics, software or similar with +10 years experience
  • Experience with developing physical products
  • A proven track record of leading technical teams
  • Architecture level understanding of physical and digital products
  • Great project management- and client relationship skills


If you have any questions regarding the job position, send an email to CTO Fredrik Silfver at [email protected], and if you have any questions regarding the recruitment process, please send an email to our HR Manager Linda Petersson at [email protected]

We at Above are devoted to breaking down the boundaries between physical and digital solutions with the fusion of hardware, software, applications and services. We work with the full scale of product and service creation, from strategic concepting all the way through to manufacturing.

We are a mixed bag, not only nationalities but also of competencies. Made up of industrial, digital- and service designers, mechanical, electrical- and software engineers, split over three offices - Stockholm, Malmö and Shenzhen.

One of our core philosophies is that we believe in bringing designers and engineers together from the start. When our designers understand the state of the art tech-enablers and our engineers get the big picture, the user experience moves from a vision into the market – and beyond, creating value in people’s everyday lives.

We work with amazing international brands, local Scandinavian heroes and a fantastic collection of startups. We also have a passion for creating our own products and have a good track record of successful start-up ventures. We’re a team of warm, welcoming, dedicated professionals that love to build cool stuff. In everything we do, we strive for a world class result and believe you share that mindset.
