ELECTROLUX GLOBAL CXO PRESENTS 

Senior Engineering Manager - Wellbeing software


Turn ideas into reality. Globally. 


For us going to work every day has an even greater purpose than putting the latest product or technology on the market. It’s about improving the everyday lives of millions. By staying humble and open to new ideas – we can push the boundaries of cooking, cleaning, and wellbeing at home. But to keep doing so, we need more people who want to innovate and re-imagine what life at home can be. 

Traditionally the appliance industry has been all about Hardware. Today, in the eye of IoT, voice assistants and autonomous systems, Software is increasingly entering the center stage to be married with hardware for a winning product experience. The Consumer Experience organization in Electrolux was founded to deliver on this journey and the focus areas cut across all Electrolux product categories.
