HiQ trains the next generation of IoT specialists

In Finland, HiQ is recruiting and training a new team of specialists in the Internet of Things (IoT) to meet the needs of an expanding market. Today sees the launch of the “HiQ IoT Adventure Program”, which will generate 15 new positions in the company.

The HiQ IoT Adventure Program is open both to new graduates and to other applicants who already have some industry experience. Those selected to take part in the six-month training course will not only receive practical and technical training, but they will also participate in actual projects under the guidance of HiQ experts. On completion of the program, the intention is to recruit all successful candidates to the HiQ organisation.

"The Internet of Things opens up huge business opportunities for all companies. However, boosting profits with the help of the Internet of Things requires new forms of competence that are not readily available today. To rectify this situation we are now conducting our own program to identify highly motivated individuals and give them the right tools to become the best in the business," says HiQ's Jukka Rautio.

HiQ will select 15 participants for the program. Applicants should have a background in technology and be passionate about making people's lives simpler. The program will be conducted in collaboration with Saranen Consulting, Microsoft, Onsight Helsinki and the ELY Centre (the Finnish Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment).

"We at HiQ help our customers all the way from idea, via technical development and implementation to further development and management. IoT plays more and more important role in this chain. By attracting the greatest talents in this field we will become an even more attractive partner for our customers," says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

The HiQ IoT Adventure Program starts on 31 August, but candidates can apply to register from today onwards.

HiQ expands in three Swedish cities following the acquisition of Headlight

Earlier this year, HiQ acquired Headlight Group, consisting of Headlight and Relight. This acquisition is an important part of HiQ’s expansion journey and will bring new job opportunities to the cities of Västerås, Örebro and Borlänge due to the great recruitment need. The news comes just weeks after the acquisition was announced and is an important part of HiQ’s effort to become Northern Europe’s leading tech consulting firm.

– We’re so excited to be expanding to Borlänge and in the cities of Örebro and Västerås! This merger enables us to expand further in the Swedish market and bring new jobs to all three cities while also affording us the opportunity to work together with companies in these areas. This is a good step for us on our expansion journey. Let’s go big!, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
