System Verification Engineer

Sundbyberg, Stockholm, Sweden

Do you think you know everything about light?

What we are looking for

Profoto is a global premium brand with quality as our foremost priority. We develop lights and light shaping tools, enabling image creators to turn their ambition into reality. The System Verification team is crucial to ensuring product quality and Profoto’s vision of delivering great light in every image. As System Verification Engineer, you will work alongside highly motivated colleagues. To succeed in this role, you should be driven, structured, curious, and collaborative.

Key responsibilities

You will work with us to ensure that our products meet Profoto’s high quality standards. Your tasks will mainly revolve around new product development, but also root cause analysis, production tests, and some research and innovation activities. We expect you to:

  • Plan and execute verification activities
  • Develop and document new test methods when necessary
  • Communicate clearly with other project members
  • Write test plans and reports
  • Specify necessary production tests at system level
  • Troubleshoot fail units

Your profile

To fit well in this role, you should:

  • Have a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Engineering
  • Be fluent in Swedish and have very good communication skills in English
  • Have at least 2-3 years’ experience as a system test engineer or similar role
  • Have knowledge in embedded systems
  • Be familiar with using test equipment such as oscilloscopes, optical sensors, spectrometers, etc.
  • Be organized and analytical
  • Enjoy working cross-functionally
  • Be willing to work hands-on and get your hands dirty if needed
  • Enjoy the fast pace of a modern company where everyone’s contribution is valued

Previous experience in photography is not required but would be merited. You will be responsible for planning and executing system tests where compatibility with different cameras, timing, and light quality measurements are fundamental. Therefore, an interest in photography is a definite plus.

Profoto’s System Verification team is a group of very committed colleagues, and we are continuously improving our methods and processes. We believe in knowledge sharing and growing as a team, and you can expect an open environment and a high dose of nerdy test-talk if you join us.

Profoto is more than a brand. Profoto is more than the world-leading light shaping products we make. 

Profoto is dedicated to making every image the best it can possibly be by helping the creator bring the very best quality of light to the image.

Because we believe that light is the indispensable heart of all image creation, no matter what the camera, no matter what the situation, the ability to create amazing images is directly linked to the ability to master light shaping.

That core principle is the key to enabling a world filled with incredible images and the purpose of every single light shaping tool we make.
