"I didn't choose it, it chose me"
You are known here at Excillum as the compliance expert. But apart from that, who are you?
Hmm that's a good question... and probably the hardest one! I am a caring and helpful person who wants everyone to be happy. When someone is not happy, I try to change that. I'm also a bit impatient, and if nothing happens I make sure to speed things up.
What are you doing here at Excillum?
I am working as a compliance engineer, which means that I make sure that our product complies with regulations and laws.
Why did you choose a career in compliance?
I didn't choose it, it chose me. I have always worked at companies with electricity and energy intense products, and in these organisations a bad design could cause electronic shocks, burns etc. Working with that risk made me value the rules and standards regulating the design, as they create better and more safe products.
I have always considered it important that everyone followr rules and guidelines, to ensure health and safety. And therefore
compliance work fits me perfectly. I make sure that our work comply with regulations and laws, and assure that we sell safe products.
Do you have any favourite memory associated with your job?
I can’t think of anything specific. But it is always a great feeling when you complete a compliance work on a new product, as it is the final step before the release. After my approval the product will be ready for the market and the customer.
Thank you Karin. We are happy to have you in our team!
