Work location

Our headquarter is in Växjö and as this is a strategical role, we see it as most convenient if you are also based in our Växjö office.

However, JLT is an international company and we are very flexible when it comes to when and where you want to work. The most important thing for us, is that the business works. Most of our customers and partners are not located in the Växjö area and from time to time, you will need to visit them and work out of their locations.

In this recruitment we have chosen to collaborate with Maxkompetens. Please send us a brief introduction of yourself and we will get back to you. Contact Nathalie Petersson recruitment consultant, on +46733205635 for any related questions.

About JLT

Our story starts in 1994. The Internet was new. Industrial computers were basic and 3G was still a dream. Over the following decades, JLT pioneered the rugged computing market. By taking design and quality to new levels, we brought the possibilities of computing to industries where a typical office machine might last just minutes. Today we are Sweden’s largest PC manufacturer, with over 100,000 computers shipped worldwide. But our mission remains the same as ever: we’re here to empower customers’ business by enabling hassle-free data communication in challenging environments.

We believe details make all the difference when it comes to rugged devices. That’s why we have our own engineering and manufacturing facilities in Sweden, enabling us to control every aspect of production with high precision. The result is that, without question, our customers can always count on quality. Additionally, JLT combines global resources with the agility of a small company. We take great pains to understand a customer’s operation and setup, and we go further than anyone to secure the performance they want. The performance of a rugged device is highly dependent on the infrastructure around it; everything from building layout to IT infrastructure plays a part. We understand all the complications and we’re focused on solving them for our customers. Drawing on years of experience and leading technical knowledge, we empower businesses and keep their operations running smoothly. Find out more at
