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 aims high with cybersecurity

In this increasingly digitalized world, there is no denying the significant threats that exist within digital systems. HiQ is building a comprehensive cybersecurity department to help existing and new customers to manage the cyber threat landscape that surrounds them. The goal is to help prepare communities, companies, and organizations to meet cyber threats and secure their continued digitization journey.

“Saying that cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important is an understatement. At HiQ, our aim is to be a one-stop-shop for our customers and cybersecurity is an important component in delivering just that. Today, entire organizations must be aware of all the existing risks, and we want to be a part of that transformation for companies and throughout Northern Europe. That is why we are now building competence in cybersecurity and aiming for a leading position within the field,” says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
