Haris Trbakovic has lengthy experience as an engineer and in the field of Test & Quality. He has been self-employed and worked at several exciting companies before starting at ESSIQ in 2015. He works at ESSIQ in Gothenburg and predicts an exciting future for the role of an engineer.
Haris is a systems engineer, and in his career has tried several exciting workplaces and contracts. A large portion of his working life has been spent doing what he currently works with: testing and verification. Haris is currently contracted as a Systems Verification Engineer at Volvo Trucks.
What he likes best about his job, he explains, is that he gets to be a central part of some exciting developments:
“It’s great to be where the action is, now the automotive industry is undergoing change.”
Haris is an experienced engineer, and he has learned a lot from his different workplaces and assignments. Amongst other roles, he has worked as a developer focusing on verification, and as a systems tester in the telecoms industry. He explains that over the years he has gained insight into different working methods and acquired knowledge of a number of areas. In recent years he has worked extensively with agile methodologies and also became a certified Scrum Master.
“I’ve learned a lot about my contract and have been able to go on courses to hone my skills where needed, allowing me to develop even further,” explains Haris.
“Being an employee at ESSIQ,” says Haris, “means that you are always the focus.” He appreciates that openness and clarity are highly valued at ESSIQ, and feels there is a great sense of camaraderie in the company.
“When things go well, we celebrate the successes together. It’s also a great mix of people, with different personalities.”
Haris is looking forward to continuing his development, and he sees a huge change in the technology industry in the coming years. AI and nanotechnology are two areas that he feels will be pivotal. Haris believes that AI, a hot topic throughout the industry, will both replace jobs and create new ones. Personally, he would love to be trained in testing management:
“I’m always trying to develop. I really enjoy my job, but would love to learn more about testing management, and continue to improve in my field,” says Haris.
Haris describes himself as a positive, imaginative and ambitious person. And if he hadn’t ended up an engineer, he would probably have done something totally different, he explains:
“I’m big into exercise and like swimming, running and going to the gym, so I might have ended up as a personal trainer!”
