From February 1, 2019, our development department will once again be expanded! And this time, the expansion is not only made of one but two strong profiles consisting of the engineer, Mads Grunnet Askholt (left), and the physicist, Poul Lindholm Pedersen (right), which all of us look forward to!
The Recruitment Strategy
Getting a team of developers with a wide range of skills, expertise, and insights has been our recruitment strategy, as we have experienced that this kind of diversity results in a strong skill set and a strong team dynamic. Parameters that are essential for maintaining our position as leading experts in Europe in terms of building specialized measuring instruments, controllers, and signal generators for automation, simulation, and test projects.
Hence, today’s team consists of very different profiles in relation to factors such as education, skill set, and experience which the hiring of Mads and Poul also helps to support.
In continuation of the strategy, a crucial question is, however, why Mads and Poul would like to be part of GPower which they explain below:
“I chose to become part of GPower to become part of a knowledge-intensive development team and a growing company. Here, I expect being able to use my qualifications, acquire new skills, and get new challenges in exciting projects – and not least nerding out even more 😊” – Mads Grunnet Askholt.
“I have always been interested in hardware and instrumentation. In my professional work, I have also been interested in innovation and the use of technology in the industry. Therefore, it was obvious for me to apply for being part of GPower owing to their mission about spreading advanced instrumentation to the industry” – Poul Lindholm Pedersen.
Mads Grunnet Askholt
Mads is an engineer from Aarhus University, and comes from a position at Grundfos where he has worked as a Senior Engineer in their electronic test department. Furthermore, he has been a LabVIEW developer at Mita-Teknik and a technician at Danmon Systems Groups.
Poul Lindholm Pedersen
Poul is a trained physicist, and he has, among other things, a Master of Science (MSc) in Nanotechnology and a Ph.D. from Aarhus University. In recent years, he has been a consultant at Teknologisk Institut. Here, he has worked with new technologies for the oil industry among others.
