THE PEOPLE OF CONFIGURA

TEAM PLAYER

Working across time zones and three continents, Configurans are team players who are committed to providing the best possible experience for our CET community.

Curtis Kuipers, a senior support specialist, became a Configuran in 2015 working in the Grand Rapids, Michigan office. After spending time traveling around the globe connecting with other Configurans and customers, he and his wife relocated to Sweden in 2020.

"Configurans are problem solvers and we're focused on making CET Designer even better for our users. Our goal is to provide the same kind of experience regardless of the location," Kuipers said. "Even though I am working in Sweden, I could be helping someone in Tokyo with a question. We're lucky that technology makes it so easy to connect with people."

Being team players at heart, Configurans value connecting with each other and helping their colleagues.

Alice Tan, a quality assurance analyst in the Kuala Lumpur office, also says Configurans are helpful and there for each other.

"Configurans are highly capable and also very easy to work with," Tan said. "As I've traveled to different offices, I've created strong bonds with my colleagues. Regardless of which office you visit, you feel welcomed and can quickly get back into the rhythm of working."

When possible, Configurans travel to meet with customers and connect with other Configurans from other offices. Since joining Configura in 2016, Hanna Fägersjö, principal training and support specialist, has traveled to Romania, Ukraine, South Africa, Dubai and the United States, among others, to train users and customers.

 

"Traveling to our different offices supports our culture and conversations flow more smoothly once you have met someone in person. I also love that we can connect with co-workers and customers at any time across time zones thanks to technology."

 

When you join Configura, you become part of a team who cares about your success and you work with people who are there to help you along the way.

INNOVATIVE

Configurans bring unique skills, experiences and cultural perspectives from around the globe that encourages new ways of thinking. Working together, Configurans dare to explore the unknown and innovate long-lasting solutions.

"Configura encourages employees to take risks," Hampus Andersson, a senior developer on the product team, said. "We are all challenged to improve and grow. Sure, sometimes you fail while you’re innovating, but that’s part of the process."

Andersson joined Configura in 2016. He says Configura’s culture encourages innovation by offering a space where employees can own their projects and collaborate together.

"At Configura, you’re given a compass rather than a map,” Andersson said. “For example, our team is given goals, and then we determine together how we will achieve those goals. We get to set up our own process and workflow, which is an opportunity I don’t think you get at many other companies."

Configurans are also motivated by solving problems. Henrik Phung, a developer in the product department, says that Configura’s focus on continuous improvement and finding solutions makes it a rewarding place to work.

 

"We have so many more opportunities to learn and grow thanks to Configura’s innovative culture. Since we are a small but growing company, you get the opportunity to solve problems and see it through. It’s such a nice feeling when you succeed with something and it was your responsibility."

 

Configura’s culture of openness fosters an environment where employees feel comfortable sharing ideas and innovating together. Andersson adds that even though Configura is growing, it has kept its hunger for innovation and spirit of a startup.

COMMITTED

Whether they’re coding, training users or connecting with customers, Configurans are committed to generating value and providing the best experience for our CET community. In fact, many of our Configurans have built long-term careers with us because of their passion for helping people around the globe design better spaces.

Freddie Pintar began his journey with Configura 12 years ago. He started at Configura while completing his thesis, and later was offered a role on the core team where he worked on CET Designer. As Pintar grew with Configura, he helped launch the company’s web team and worked on the R&D team. Over time, Pintar developed a passion for people and in 2020, transitioned into the role of group manager where he now focuses on the development of about 20 Configurans.

"I find it rewarding to see our teams working together and solving problems, and I enjoy helping individuals set goals and supporting their growth. Configurans are committed to their work and to helping each other. If you talk to the Configurans who have been here the longest, they’ll often say they enjoy working here because we are committed and we are team players."

Global Head of Sales Commercial & Residential Interiors, Brooke Snow, who has been at Configura since 2013, is passionate about helping Configura and its CET community succeed.

"There are many things I love about my job, but one of the best things is knowing I’m making a difference for our Partners and users of our software. I truly love seeing organizations succeed by using our product and it’s rewarding to be part of that journey."

In Swedish, there’s a word called "prestigelös" which can be translated as "prestigelessness". The Swedish word means to be humble, open and genuine. Prestigelös is infused throughout Configura’s culture, which inspires employees to continuously innovate and work for the greater good of the company.

Sara Schill Saran is a technical writer who has been with Configura for 10 years and says Configura’s “prestigeless atmosphere” encourages dedication and teamwork across the company.

 

"Here at Configura, people help each other out, put prestige aside and pitch in, and I think that’s one of our major strengths as a company. We’re all in this together and each of us brings unique skills and experiences that support the success of Configura and our CET community."
